It was a cold day and there was snow still laying on the ground outside, but Emmaline decided to dare the cold to go play in the park. It wasn't long before she met Finch who was taking his dog for a ride in his go-cart.
Emmaline: Hello Finch, do you want to play ball?
Finch: Not today Emma, Gilbert has been inside far too long, so I am taking him for a ride to get him out of the house..
Emmaline: Is Gilbert sick?
Finch: No he's just lazy and likes to sleep in front of the fire all day.
Emmaline: Well shouldn't you make him walk and get some exercise then?
Finch: Yes, but when I put him on the lead he just sits down on the snow and doesn't move. Of course, then he ends up getting a wet behind.
Emmaline: Oh dear, what a conundrum.
She gently gave Gilbert a little shake.
Emmaline: Come on Gilbert, wake up you old sleepy head, come and play ball!
But Gilbert didn't move a muscle, he just lay there in the cart snoring.
Hope you are all having a great day!
