Buddy's Valentine's Day Scavenger Hunt
by Penelope Aaron
“Woof! Woof!” said Buddy to Tyson as he licked his face. It’s time to wake up! thought Buddy. There’s a heart shaped paper on your nightstand and I don’t know what it means!Tyson sat up. “Look Buddy! This heart says to go to the playroom for a Valentine’s Day surprise!”
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.
