Puppy Smells Something Yummy

Deborah Dolan Hunt

                      Puppy ran out of the gate

                      He just couldn’t be late

                      For kitty’s surprise party

                      Today nothing would make him be tardy

                      Oh no! There was grumbling in his tummy

                       He smelled something sweet and yummy

                       An apple pie was cooling on the shelf

                       He just couldn’t help himself

A Heavenly Visit

Deborah Dolan Hunt

“Don’t cry, Mommy. I’m not scared,” said Maeve.

Mommy held Maeve’s tiny hand. “I know. You are very brave.”

Maeve was in the hospital. She had a broken leg.

Daddy placed her dolly beside her. “And Rosie will be with you.”

Maeve hugged her dolly.

Maeve and Rosie both wore identical hospital gowns and wristbands.

“Hi Maeve,” said Dr. Joe. “We’re going to take you into the special room now.”

 Her parents waved as Dr. Joe and Nurse Deb wheeled Maeve down the long hallway.

“I’m going to give you some special medicine to help you fall asleep,” said Nurse Deb.

  Maeve whispered. “I don’t want to sleep. I’m afraid.”

 “What are you afraid of?” asked Dr. Joe. 

“Grandpa went to sleep and never woke up,” Maeve whispered.

 “That’s because it was time for him to go the Heaven,” said Nurse Deb.

 Maeve nodded. “I want to go Heaven but not yet.” She slowly closed her eyes.

 When she woke up, she was back in her hospital room with her parents.

 “Mommy, Daddy,” she shouted. “I went to Heaven and saw Grandpa. He said I was his     

special Valentine. I wanted to stay with him, but he said it wasn’t my time.”

“This is my favorite day,” shouted Johnny.

“We need to stay together,” said Mommy.

”Someone needs to watch Chewy,” said Daddy.

Meg giggled. “We can’t let her knock down any trees this year.”

“I’ll watch her,” said Brian.

“Can we start with the fluffy ones first?” asked Meg. “They’re my favorite.”

Chewy led the way.

“Wow!” said Johnny. “I like this one!” 

“I like that one,” said Meg. “It’s so soft.

“They’re too small,” said Brian.

“You always say that!” said Meg.

“Can we go look at the big trees?” asked Brian.

“Yes,” said Mommy. “We need to look at some more before we decide.”

They walked down the other path. Chewy stopped and sniffed everything.

“This one is perfect,” said Brian.

“I like that one,” said Johnny.

“They’re too small.” Meg stamped her feet.

Chewy jumped up…

The Masked Skeleton

Deborah Dolan Hunt

     Sammy the skeleton jumped out of the bushes. “Boo!”

     Connor waved. “Happy Halloween.”

     Sammy grumbled.

     Clara giggled. “Sammy, you’re not creepy enough to be scary.”

    “Let’s go trick-or-treating,” said Connor.

   “No, thanks.” Sammy stomped away.

    Sammy spotted some kids.  He ran over to them and shouted, “Beware!”

    The kids ran past him to the next house. “Trick or treat!”

   Sammy put on his silly mask that was not creepy or scary and went to find his friends.

   Everyone scattered as he walked by. He spotted Connor and Clara and ran up to them.

   They screamed and ran away.
