”Jacob,” said Baby. ”Let’s play!”
“Sure,” said Jacob, amazed at the fact that Baby actually wanted to play with him. ”I’ll play with you. What do you want to play?”
”Let’s play drop it!” exclaimed Baby. “You go around the house and pick up different things in your mouth and when I say “Drop It!”, you drop it!”
”Okay,” said Jacob, wagging his little black tail.
Jacob started running all over the house, picking up everything he could find, from the remote for the television to the newspaper that was sitting on the coffee table.
Mommy and Daddy just walked into the living room as Jacob picked up a flower vase in his mouth.
”Drop it!” yelled Baby.
Jacob dropped the vase and it smashed all over the floor.
”Jacob!” yelled Daddy. ”What are you doing?”
Baby jumped up into Mommy’s arms and purred.
”Oh Baby,” said Mommy. ”Are you alright? Did that vase hurt you?”
Baby snuggled up closer to Mommy, purring louder and meowing gently.
“Jacob,” said Daddy, cleaning up the broken glass. ”That wasn’t a very nice thing to do. I think you should go to bed. Bed time Jakie boy!”
Jacob went up to bed right away.
“I don’t know what has gotten into that dog,” said Mommy, petting Baby.
A little while later, Baby went upstairs to see Jacob.
“I don’t like that game,” said Jacob, when Baby came over to the front of his bed.
”I have a better game for tomorrow,” said Baby. ”It’s called eat it!”
”Oh goodie,” said Jacob, excitedly. ”Do I get to go first again?”
Baby just stood there, laughing.
”You’re the only one playing,” Baby laughed to herself.
