I Maek a Thing

Hi mah friends! Today, Lucy gonna tells you bout how I were helpful, bout how I maek a thing with Mommy Daddy!

sharkSometime, it very portant to maek Things. Things keep your house clean. Things help you put away other things! The Thing we maek come from the KEA.

lucyFirst thing you gotta do, you gotta take all the parts out of the box of the Thing. Well, first Mommy go the KEA and pick your Thing up, then Daddy bring it in the house, but THEN you take all the parts out of the box.

lucySometime you take out all the parts and you go ‘OH MAH THERE SO MANY PARTS TO MAKE THIS THING’ but that normal. That wut happen to us all when we maek a Thing.

lucyNext, gotta set out all the parts in order. It good to inspek all the parts once you put them on the floor. Maybe you take a couple lick of the parts, jus to maek sure.

instructionsThis use-ly when I look at struck-shuns. These struck-shuns have pickshures. And the pickshures show you how to put the Thing together! Verruh portant to read the struck-shuns.

boardYou gotta move all the parts to the right places! Only one part go in every place, so you gotta do it right!

napThen maybe you take a nap for a minit. Jus a minit. Jus acause this such hard work.

helping daddyThis when you tell your Daddy he gotta help, that you gots a job for him. You let him know this such hard work, and he will help. This maeks Daddys feel very portant, and that maek them happy. Daddys need jobs to do, this a thing I know for shure.

inspectingYou gotta keep walking around and sniffing the parts of your Thing. If you don’t, they could sneak off and you would lose them!

shockingSometime, you put a part in a wrong place! And it jus maek you go ‘OH NO WUT LUCY DID HERE THIS ARE NOT AT ALL LOOK RIGHT!’

little workerSo then course it back to the struck-shuns. Gotta see where you maek your mis-take. Gotta fix your mis-take like the pickshure shows.

inspectingYou mus check real careful this time so you don’ts maek that same mis-take again. Sometimes you gotta take screw out, put other screw in, move board, turn board around. It lots of work.

overseeingSo then basik-ly it become too much work so you jus let your Daddy do it, but you mus super-vise.

shelvesFine-ly, Daddy maek the whole Thing! And then we put in shelfs. The shelfs so portant, acause that where the things go in our Thing!

so exciteThen you done!! Then you and your Daddy jus celly-brate! Look wut good work we do! Look how we maek a Thing! Then it time for Daddy to fill the Thing with things!

all doneBut best part of Maek a Thing is at the end, wen you jus sit in front of your Thing and know what a good job you done. You know it such a helpful Thing, hold many of the things, look so nice in the room, maek your Mommy so happy. Now you can go to the KEA and maek your own Thing, friends!!

Lucy BuhoHi mah friends. Today, Lucy gonna tell you a story bout how sometimes, you does a bad, but it are *akshully* a good. Wut happen were this.

Lucy & MommyMommy Daddy love to travel. And sometimes, I go with. And this the best ever!

sadBut sometimes, they go up in the air, and then I can’ts go. Then I gotta stays here. And that are a big suck.

disbeliefYou sees, mah friends, when they go up in the air, I can’ts just stay at mah house. I gotta go the KENNEL.

hidingIt not that I haet the Kennel. It just that I HAET the Kennel.

IMG_20140404_134139107This time, Mommy are pack up her bags. She are pack up mah bags. She are say, Lucy we gettin ready to go! So I gets excite. I think, this time LUCY go the trip!

grouchyNo. No it are not so. I kno right ways that I not go. I kno right ways that we goin to the Kennel. Haet it there. Haet how they give me freezey Kong, haet how they pet me, haet how those other dogs be so mean to me.

divaThey like, “Duh Lucy on Wen-day we wear pink.” And I’m like, “Wut? Wut I don’t know this!” And they like, “Lucy you wearin sweatpants, you can’ts sit with us!” And I’m like, “These sweatpants only pants fit Lucy right now!” And they like, “Ugh Lucy you don’t even GO HERE.”

sadAnd in general it all jus so very bad for mah self-steem.

123spishusSo I makes a plan. A tan-trum plan.

047littletoesbybedI throws a fit. Wen other dogs walk past mah condo, I throws mahself into the walls. I throws mahself into the walls and I cries and cries and cries. I goes, ‘BARK BARK BARK THEY ALL SO MEAN TO ME WAAAAAAH HAET THEM HAET THIS PLACE HAAAAAAAAEETTTTTTT’. For hours. For millions of hours.

080waitingfordaddy2Well wut you kno. The Kennel Lady call mah Daddy in Cally-forn-ya. It so bad she call mah Daddy at 6 the morning! Hahahaha she say, “Lucy so upset, Lucy jus get sick it so urgent you come rights now and you fetch her acause she has made herself sooooooo sick you mus come get her right away and take her home and never can she ever come back here acause it jus too much for her sensy-tive delly-cate smart brain to handle.”084chillaxindoggy3So gess wut? Mah Mommy get so worried bout me, she call mah Grandma right way and say, “Grandma it URGENT go get poor Lucy, she jus so sick, go gets her right way!” and Grandma DOES IT.

happyAs it turn out, Lucy jus fine soon as she get to Grandma Grandpa house. Lucy make rack-u-lus covery.

Why can't we be friendsI even spend some kwal-i-tee time with mah best buddy Fat Piper! She not mind if I wear sweatpants on Mondays and forget pink on Wen-day.

lucyonporchSo as it turn out, this are pretty much mah best Kennel stay ever! As it turn out, I never allow to go back to Kennel again! If Mommy Daddy go way, they gotta either brings me, or I gotta go Grandma Grandpa’s house!


So mah friends, hope you learns from Lucy. Sometime, you gotta do a bad acause it turn out to be a good. Sometime you gotta make a tan-trum and fake a sick to get the good thing you KNOW you need.

098sleeperI shure kno it work for me.

Love me some Thanks-Giving! I sees Grandma, I sees mah sees-ter, I eats all the turkey in the world, I eats all the pie in the land!

What You Had SaidThen I remember. Then I remember who come over too on Thanks-Giving. Then I’m like, Wait. Wait Bad Loo-cee aren’t come over, are she?

A suckThen I hear she are. This such a suck. This the biggest suck. I sit in yard and pout for like, evers. Ugh. This so bad.

BrattyBad Loo-Cee such a brat. She steal all mah noms, all mah stuff, all mah things, all mah ten-shun from the grownd-ups. Look that face. That the face of a ten-shun theef. Haet her so bad.

MedicineSo Mommy say, “Piper you gotta take your med-cins. You too upset already and the Bad Loo-cee not even get here yet.” So I takes it. I takes mah medcins. I cans not feel mah toes no more.

DrunkIt like, I know I GOT toes down there. I jus cants feel them. I can sees them, but they movin me around places and I don’t know hows I get there. Feel so good.

SleepingI sleep all thru Bad Loo-cee arrive. I sleep all thru night, have won-der-ful dreams bout chickin that I eat. I sleep all thru Macy Day Parade, dream that I in parade doin a dance!

With Mah SeesterMah sees-ter wake me up to give me some pie and take a pickshure with me. I sees this pickshure later, I don’t even remembers bein in it! I think I were dreamin when this pickshur get taken!

HidingSo mah friends, this Thanks-Giving, I thank-ful for med-cins that make me forget the Bad Loo-cee in mah house. I thank-ful for all them nice dreams bout the chickin and mah dancin. And I thank-ful that after Bad Loo-cee go home, mah med-cins wear off and I can feel mah toes again.

PiperBut also, I thank-ful we got more med-cins in the bottle. Jus in case I needs them. Jus in case I don’t wants to feel mah toes again. I were kinda worried… but I kinda like it.

BeaujolaisYes-ter-day were the Bo-Joo-Lay Noo-Vo festy-val. That are hard to spell, real hard, so I calls it wut Mommy Daddy call it, which are ‘Ham Wine Night.’

IngredientsMommy need mah help all day for this, so first, we gather in-gre-d-ents for our ham. Mommy make a ham soss that have apple ci-der and a bor-bon.

SamplerI inspek ci-der for kwal-tee. I not allow inspek bor-bon acause I not old enuff yet. This ci-der pretty good!

HamMommy go the store and buy a big hams. Then I sit with the hams, check up on it, make sure it not a lon-lee ham while Mommy busy makin the soss.


Then we gotta put the hams in a Crok-Pot. I puts it in, but Mommy gotta be the one make it all hot so I doesn’t burn mah toes.

CrockPotThen Mommy pour in the soss, and she press the button make the Crok-Pot warm. This when it start to be trouble. This when I start to think bout doin mah bad.

SpishusI tells you this mah friends: ham smell DELISHUS. Ham smell like I wanna put mah nose on it for evers. So all day, for 6 the hours, I gotta be real good and not go nex to the hams.

Ham TimeThen at last, it are hams time!! Mommy say, ‘look the hams you have made, Lucy! Look what a good girl you are, make this hams!’

And then I does it. I does the bad:

Ham Theef I theefs the hams. I theefs the biggest slice the hams on the plate!

Floor HamIt so delishus, I cannot even think bouts anything else. I puts the hams on the floor, eats all the pieces in one minute. Then I snuffles up the floor to get the hams joose too! YUM I DOESN’T CARE HOW BAD IT ARE WORTH IT!

HampologyMommy Daddy say, “NO LUCY THAT NOT FOR YOU, THAT PIECE TOO BIG FOR LITTLE YOU” but I cans not lissen. I jus wants the hams. I wants the hams until all hams are gone. And then I act sorry.

CutieI act like I feel so bad, like I knows wut a bad I does. Like I so sorry, and I pose for the pickshure Mommy want with the wine bottle I not allowed to drink anyway cause I too little.

Not sorryBut mah friends, I mus tell you. I not sorry. I not sorry one bit. This hams were most delishus hams of all time.

Ham HangoverSometimes, mah friends, you does a bad acause it worth it. I learns this to-day. I learns that hams always worth it. I cants wait for next year Ham Wine Night. Gonna get two piece the hams. Sometimes, you does a bad acause it worth it. Hams worth it for sure.
