White Dog was up early and helped Steve groom the grounds for Agility Class. They made coffee for the humans. White Dog arranged her surprise bags of Siku Smile treats for each of her friends on the deck. Then the phone rang. It was Daisy and Poppy; their pregnant human mom was not feeling well and they would not be able to come. White Dog was sad but told them to tell Stephanie to feel better. White Dog hopped onto her window perch to watch for the others and the phone rang again. "I don't have a good feeling about this," she muttered. This time it was Jesse, her trainer, calling to say that she had awoken with a ripping headache and upset stomach and consequently agility was cancelled for the day! White Dog was crushed! She lay on the couch and sulked. She refused to run the course by herself. She ate my consolation treats half-heartedly. Resigned, White Dog crawled under the chair and went to sleep.
