"Gifts on a Pon"
Happy Christmas everyone! Stash here. Remember me? We talked awhile
ago. I'm AKC, NATL., INT'L. CH. BOGDANKA KING STANISLAS POSY O'PIRC
CGC, TDI, TDIA, AKC TD, HD (Ch. Czort Nerita z Ch. Nowinka Kosy
Dziechcinek). Most 'especially important I am a TDI DOG. Since last
time I wrote I have been very, very busy. After two semesters at St.
Gabriels in Hubertus Wisconsin visiting with the kinder kids every
Friday morning I took a summer break. In the fall of 2010 I began
visiting closer to home at a grade school in Hartford Wisconsin. Once a
week a special lady brought a small boy into a quiet room where dad and
I would be waiting for him. I don't quite know what was wrong, but some
days he would be happy and others very angry. In the happy times He
would make play dough figures at the small table he worked at and also
LEGOS. He would show them to me. I like the small tables 'cause I can
see what's all going on. The table fits right under my chin. Of course
I never, ever steal anything off of a table. Anyways, sometimes we
would go for walks together too. But on those angry days he might throw
his glasses at the wall or stomp his feet or yell really loud. Those
times I just sat quietly with my dad until he got happy again. Early in
spring of 2011 his special teacher lady left to have a baby and I did
not ever see the little boy again. I say a pray for him every day and I
sure hope he can be more happy and less sad.
Summertime in 2011, I made friends with the head children's librarian,
Audrey, at Hartford Library. We liked each others right at the
beginning. She said it would be fun for me to visit with the children
and I agreed. So every Tuesday morning from 10 until noon children
signed up to read to me for 20 minutes each. Sometimes they came alone
and sometimes with a buddy or sister or brother. it really didn't
matter. I say the more the better. After they read, my mom stamped
their wrist with a "PON" stamp. She got the stamper from my special
friend, Anne Weiss. Mrs.
Weiss has a PON named Mikey. The kids liked that a lot. Summer reading
ended with a Ice Cream Party. I was invited, but mom said "no ice cream
for you little boy". That's okay I got a cookie when I got home.
The library closed in late summer to reopen in the fall even bigger and
better. The building tripled in size and according to the records and
what dad says the new Jack Russell Memorial Library in Hartford
Wisconsin cost 10 million dollars. WOW! And guess what me, STASH, is
part of the staff. I am their library reading dog. Me just me. Open
house was November 13th and I sat there in the children's area so
proudly greeting grandmas and moms and especially all the kids. Dads
even came because the Green Bay Packers were not playing that Sunday.
Late in the afternoon the owners of a large book store in West Bend
Wisconsin were introduced to me. Mom says they want me to have
children's reading times at their store. We'll see.
Now I can report to you that every Saturday from 10 am to 1:30 in the
afternoon children come to read to me. Mom has a sign up sheet at the
front desk and parents sign up their boys and girls for half hour
slots. We started Saturday November 19th. Everybody came except one
little girl. Her dad called to say she had the flu. She is signed up
to come two more Saturdays in the future so she won't miss out. My
special reading room has a big round carpet, window seats, two green
pillows with big "S's" on them and a big blankie for the kids to cuddle
in. My new reading buddies got the PON stamp on their wrists when they
finished and a special $5 token for the children's game room at a local
restaurant called the Mine Shaft. Mr. Master's is the owner and he is a
very nice man. All the kids smiled and that made me smile too. Oh!
before I forget, my new reading buddies are excellent readers and will
get better and better I am sure.
Bye for now. Santa, if you read this please leave wonderful squeakies
and yummies for all the PONS all over the world. As for me and Paczki (
Ch. Hilary Rexer z Ch.Tzarina's Sweetist Taboo), we really have plenty
of happy things already. But an extra cookie treat is nice to have
before night, night time. Santa, my "special" sister, Paczki is really
a very good girl even though she bosses me around sometimes.
