Buddy's Valentine's Day Scavenger Hunt
by Penelope Aaron
Buddy jumped off Tyson’s bed, ready to follow him anywhere. He could feel Tyson’s excitement even though he didn’t understand what it was all about.
Tyson ran down the hallway with Buddy at his heels. Tyson searched the shelves full of toys while Buddy sniffed around the toy box.
“Woof!” Buddy gave one quick bark to alert Tyson that he had located the heart.
Tyson rushed over to him. “Good dog!” he said and patted Buddy’s head. “It says to go to the kitchen. Let’s go!”
Buddy galloped behind Tyson into the kitchen where Mama was sitting at the table. Buddy smelled something delicious.
“Good morning boys,” Mama said with a smile.
Tyson’s plate was piled high with heart shaped waffles and strawberries and whipped cream. He read the heart next to his plate. “Buddy, it says Happy Valentine’s Day!”
Buddy noticed the large bone in his dog dish.
“Thank you Mama. I love you,” said Tyson.
“Woof! Woof!” said Buddy in agreement.
