Can dog sleep in the tent with us tonight Dad I asked grabbing Dog around the belly so that he can’t run off after a frenzied squirrel

We can’t have that Bee Dad says The tent is for humans Dog wants to sleep outside where the air is fresh

If any dog deserves to sleep inside it’s him I say Plus it’s raining

Dog loves the rain says Dad Gloop brain, gloopy brain he sings Dad is always singing to himself He’s that sort of dad

No Dog hates the rain I say defiantly as Dog breaks free and trots off cheerfully through the hammering drops into the underbrush
