Dear Sherry, Why do you go out without a single word...? I have a strong hunch that you're not with me, cuz I don't hear you barking. Imagine that the moment that I was told by my neighbor that you were enjoying a stay with them like a member of the family. Mr. Bazooka spoke to me in a proud tone to have had a good time with a neighbor smart dog, completely ignoring my worry about your slipping away. To be honest, I felt I lost my dog! Just a single word, if you could tell me, i wouldn't grow uneasy. I'm a teenager enough to twig and can wait for you. Just a word to say hello before leaving saves further troubles. Alas..., Of course, I know you're a smart dog with no words. I wish you can give me a bark when you're away instead of a word!! Sherry, can you hear me? Can you understand my words...?? (ꐦ°д°)
