MOM IS MAD
By Cathy Collar
Mom is mad! That is why I am in time out. Jake is sitting by mom’s chair. Mom should be mad at Jake, not me. It was Jake who ran out the gate. He ran to the pond. I just ran after him. Jake went for a swim and got stuck in the mud. I just went in to save him. It was Jake who found the frog. He tried to eat it. I just saved the frog. Jake got slime on his mouth. I just wiped it off with my shirt. That is why when we got home my clothes were wet, muddy, and slimy. That is why mom is mad. She is not mad at Jake. She is mad at me. She says that it is my fault, because Jake is my dog. But I still think she should be mad at Jake.
