From Nessie's Diary: Wednesday, September 1, 2010
Greetings! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Nessie. I am 10. I am white, soft, and fluffy. I am a PAL dog.
I went to the library tonight for the first time. It was a hot day in the city, so I was grateful for some refreshing cold water when I arrived. My new pal Ava told me there were T Bonz, but I refrained. I’m trying to watch my waistline.
It was nice and cool in the library. I lounged on a comfy cushion and listened to stories. I found it very relaxing. There is something very calming about someone reading a book to you. Do you know what I mean?
One little boy wanted to read me The Pet Vet by Marcia Leonard, with photographs by Dorothy Handelman. I tried to put on a brave face. You see, I get a little nervous going to the vet. I know he is a good doctor, trying to keep me healthy, but it’s not always a fun place to visit.
Personally, I was hoping someone would read Marmaduke by Kristen Mayer to me. I think he is so handsome. Maybe next time.
