Emma has Puppies

This is part 2 - The Hitty's Visit a Fire station (2012) 

Harold and Brenda Sunshine are having breakfast with their children. This morning Harold tells the children that four weeks ago when he took Emma with him to the Fire Station with the Hitty girls Emma ran off with one of the Fire Fighters dog and as a consequence Emma is now expecting puppies in a couple of weeks.

The children are excited to hear the news and can’t wait until Emma has the puppies.

The family are sitting outside enjoying the sun and fresh air and they notice that Emma is jumping up a lot.

Harold tells the children not to encourage Emma to jump up and run around all excited when she is playing with them.

 The days past and one morning their father tells them that Emma has had seven puppies. Wow! They crowd around and want to see and hold them. Harold tells them they can’t hold them until the puppies eyes open and they hold them if they are supervised by him or their mother.

The puppies are growing and have their eyes opened and are running in the house. Brenda can feel one of the puppies jumping up on her leg as she changes Hope’s nappy. Brenda is now concerned she or the children may trip over them.

The children are handling the puppies regularly and know they have to sit down if they want to hold a puppy and not walk around carrying a puppy.

The puppies are always finding the children’s toys on the floor and they chew them. Even Emma has started chewing on a teddy bear she has found as well as some of the puppies are chewing on another teddy bear they have found. The puppies are shaking the bear and others are pulling at it.

It was a wonderful experience for the children to see the puppies grow up and be able to play with them, but Emma will not be having any more puppies because last week she went to the Vet to be spayed.

What is in the Trunk?

Alana is in the big house alone and she knows there is a trunk in one of the unused bedrooms. I wonder what is in the trunk. She hasn't noticed that Woody, the cat has followed her inside.

She climbs the stairs and goes into the bedroom where the trunk is. She opens the trunk and Woody jumps on the top edge of the trunk. Oh, no, thinks Alana I don’t want you here.

Inside she sees some old fashion lace, a pink pearl necklace, a lace bride dress, she takes these items out to look at. There are more items in the trunk. Alana bends over to reach for another item and she hears the door open downstairs.

She quickly puts the things back into the truck, closes the top and walks out the bedroom and down the stairs. Another day she will come back and see what else is in the trunk.
