Dog’s Collection of Journal Entries & Drawings from Day 44 of the Apocalypse (His Favorite!):
Rain is fun. It makes something called mud, and that is good to roll in. It does not smell as good as dead worms, but it covers your scent just as well and sometimes you can find worms in it to save for later. After it dries, you can lick it and turn it back into mud and taste all the things that also rolled in it. That is why it is called wetting your appetizer. Other food tastes even better after that!
It rained and everything is covered in mud, including Dog. And me. He got stuck in a mud puddle, tripped me up, and I fell in with him. Some zombie was half-undead, buried in the mud, and almost got both of us. You really have to watch out for mud puddles. And dogs that like to roll in them. What I wouldn’t give for a hot shower! At least Dog wasn’t so traumatized that he lost his appetite.
PS: Dog won’t stop licking me between bites of food for some reason. I don’t know if I should be grateful for the clean-up help or concerned…
