Chloe was the first to notice. "Woody, look at this." When I didn't re- spond, Chloe looked at me. "Are you OK, Woody?" Chloe asked. Wag, wag. "Are you stuck?" or kayaking," Mom said. "We could go to Lake Bar- kley, Lake Cumberland, Nolin lake, Dale Hollow or many other lakes." "Can you move, son?" Dad asked. Wag, wag. Wag, wag, wag, wag! "Speaki'ng of water, I'd love to go sailing at Cave Run or Kentucky Lake," Chloe said. "Do you think we could sometime, Dad?" "Absolutely," Dad said, "and even though I'm still walking bow-legged, I'd love to go horseback rid- ing again." Wag, wag.

I wagged my tail to let him know I un- derstood. Then he spoke again. "I'm going to drill a larger hole. Don't move until I tell you." "Are you hurt, baby?" Mom asked in her sooth- ing voice. Wag, wag. "I'll go get some equip- ment to get you out," Rex said and began to de- scend. "Woody, you know how Mom and Dad tell us when we're in uncopafort- able situations to thfik about pleasant things?" Chloe said. 'q'hink about the adventures those brochures said were in Kentucky. Imagine look- ing down at the beautiful horse farms from a hot air balloon or a parachute." Wag, wag, wag, wag, wagI "I would love to spend The drill was loud, but so were woodpeckers. I thought the woodpecker was being disrespectful to the tree by drilling a hole, but then I realized the woodpecker was de- signed to drill a hole in the tree, and the tree was designed to handle a hole by the woodpecker.

"I meant to say 'thank you' and 'I'm sorry,' but I sneezed instead. Thank you for getting me out of my mess, and I'm sorry for all the trouble I caused. I am sure I will have plenty of time to think about my mistake while I'm in the dog- house." Dad smiled. "I'm sure there will be a punish- ment for acting without thinking first, but I have a feeling you ,won't be doing anything like that again." I thanked Dad and told him again how sorry I was. He listened, winked at me and said, "Let's make our descent, rest a while, eat some lunch and open the next card." I realized how much re- spect I had for the birds, owls, squirrels and even cats. Being in the tree was wonderful, but mov- ing around on the ground was easier. We ate a sandwich of tomatoes, cucumbers and cheese with a side of celery and kiwi. I didn't know if I was just famished or if I was getting used to our new eating habits, but it was delish. When we were finished, Chloe pulled out our next Rx card.
