LETTER: Bandit enjoys a holiday

Toy poodle pup has new experiences while owners in Mexico

Dear Editor,

My name is Bandit. I am small and of the poodle variety. I am a toy poodle.

I want to tell you about my recent visit to Langley, a town not far from where I live. It was a lot of fun.

It all began when my humans went away for three whole weeks to a place called Mexico! I don’t know why.

Anyway, in Langley I met two other humans. One was tall and the other one made my suppers, and so had nice smelling hands. Both humans were very friendly and we got along really well.

I got the same food that I get at home and I got to go for walks to the park.

Once, we went for a car ride to see a yellow bird. I don’t know what the big deal was, but there were lots of other humans with cameras looking at the bird and making quite a fuss over it. It was a little bit boring and I had to stay on my leash, so I didn’t get to meet any other dogs.

Then the bird looked like he was bored, too, and he just flew away over a hedge and we all went home after that. But it got us out of the house that day!

Now, here is the real good part of my stay in Langley. One day we went to the seaside, and I ran and ran on the sandy shore! I didn’t get to meet any dogs that day either, but that was okay, because there were lots of seagulls – that’s what the humans called them, “seagulls.”

I chased quite a few of them and they made plenty of loud noises. I think they liked being chased.

My humans never take me to the beach, so was it a new experience – the seashore, the seagulls, and before that, the yellow bird that flew away.

I think there are a lot of things to do that I have never done before. I will just have to wait, I guess.

Oh yes! One more thing: my humans are back home from Mexico. They are a slightly different colour now, but nothing else has changed, and I get the same food for supper.
