Camp Run-Amuck requires all campers to send their last week note to home as “Proof of Life.” Stupid lawyers! This week has just zoomed by!!! I could not “hug” Helen and Marc, but I have been licking them ALOT for you!!!!! Helen lets me wake Marc up some mornings by licking his ear if it is close to the edge of the bed. Sometimes I think I can taste BRAIN!!!!! I got my first swimming lesson. Not sure how I like it. I really wanted something firm to stand on, so I climbed up Marc and tried to stand on his head, not as flat as I had hoped! After a few minutes they put me back on solid ground and everything was fine. They say I looked like a drowned Ewok, I then proceeded to wreak havoc in Helen’s iris bed to dry off. Marc kept me from rolling in “Heron poop,” another one of his stupid rules. I then got pampered with a nose to tail brushing!!! I ended up on my back, all paws in the airing and fell asleep. It was the best! I am just worried I won’t be able to learn to swim quickly enough to get across the lake and see my poodle love. I really enjoy the height of the deck for watching the stupid squirrels try and creep up. I spy them and point them right out to Helen and Marc. I almost caught one that was soooo intent on chewing the bird food box! It did not see me coming. I’m still picking squirrel tail out of my teeth!
I found out I can climb trees! If the smells are strong, up I go, and Marc has only had to come help me down twice. Went swimming again yesterday but only got my paws wet. Marc is still looking for a floating pad so I can get my swimming legs under me. Just can’t bring myself to jump off into the deep water.
Going to start finding all my stuff I’ve carefully buried so I can get packed up when the time comes for my trip home. Can’t wait to see you, Mom
What a good girl you are to write such a chatty letter to your old Mum. You are certainly taking full advantage of your camping experience. I do hope you are being considerate of your counselors Please be on your party manners with Marc and Helen, Bella. Cleaning up heron poop is no fun for Marc – and Helen’s iris’s – really, Bella. You know better than that!
Yes the week has gone fast. If you need Bullie sticks to help you be calm, tell Marc I‘ll reimburse him when I get back.
Lots of love to you and Marc and Helen. See you soon, Sweetie
