Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? Chickie has a new game to play with me. She’s always inventing new games!
At first, I was jealous, because Poppa lets her get away with anything. If I did the naughty things Chickie does, I would be in trouble with him. Then I realized that I can play games he would be mad at me for playing as long as I play with her. It’s so fun!
Her latest game is called The Mysterious Lump.
Poppa put a cover on the couch so I wouldn’t get couch threads on my fur. Chickie gets under the cover and scratches the couch and Poppa lets her get away with it. So she wiggles around under the cover and I pretend I don’t know it’s her.
Then I get on the floor and wait for her to come out.
Sometimes I have to wait for a long time!
But she finally comes out, and we run and run and run and then we rest.
It’s good to have a friend to play with and to watch over you while you take a nap.
