Agent SNORE: Mission 121918, Cats Game, Part Two

Paul and Thor continued writing Cats Game, I still illustrated,

(Paul) Meanwhile I was searching around the warehouse, soon I came upon three spiders. “It’s your turn Gutter”, one spider hissed. Another spider landed on the ground and scurried away.

“Well, Fly” said the first spider. “It’s just you and me”.

“What are the dogs doing now, Stringy?” asked the one called Fly.

“Nothing much if you count whining, but I did get a autographed book of Diary of a Wimpy Dog“. After a few more minutes of talking I decided to make my move. I scooped up Fly, “Where are the dogs?” I asked.

“Uhhh, three P-p-passages on the left and then s-s-straight”. With that I bolted off.

(Thor) At that moment I woke up. I looked around, I was tied up by the tail to a stone wall. I could only go about three feet. Two dogs were tied up next to me. I remembered the white dog was Lady Flopsy and the black and white one as Lea Dea. I pawed at my collar, I hit the button that released the solution that would dissolve the spider webs. My restrains began to dissolve, and soon I was released. I did that to Lady Flopsy and Lea Dea also. They were free! Suddenly we heard a noise and we turned around, there in front of us was a giant spider!

(Paul) I twisted throgh the boxes after following the spiders directions, I saw a cave. I crept forward. Then I saw a giant spider in front of Thor and two other dogs. I knew it was GIGANTO. I thought for a moment before figuring out what to do. I jumped on GIGANTO and hit his head. GIGANTO began to shrink and I put him in a special box. Thor slobbed me till I told him to stop. Then we went out,  jumped in Thor’s car and Lea Dea drove back to S.A.D headquarters.

(Thor) Agent 12½ and Agent 8¼ congratulated us and put GIGANTO in a cell in the shed with Dr. Boul. Ing. Bal. Then they told us that Lea Dea could shine light and breath glitter, they called her GLOWGIRL. Then Paul came up to me. “I have a mission in Catvill but I will be back in December unless something goes wrong”. Then we both got copy’s of Diary of a Wimpy Dog from Flopsy.  I told Paul “Thank you” and,

“Mission Accomplished”

Agent SNORE: Mission 121818, Cats Game, Part One

Thor and Paul wrote this story together, I illustrated.

(Thor) I was playing with my chew toy when Agent 8¼ called me. “Thor, Lady Flopsy and Lea Dea have been captured!”. When I got inside Agent 8¼ continued, “They have been captured by Baron Von Web”. I whined questioningly. “I don’t know why they have been captured”, Agent 8¼ replied. “But we think that you will need a partner, so we chose Paul”.

I sat down to try to remember who every one was. Lady Flopsy was writer of Diary of a Wimpy Dog, she is famous. Lea Dea was a new recruit for S.A.D. (Superhero, Animal, Department), I do not know why they want her. Baron Von Web was a dropout of S.A.D, he was called GIGANTIO and could turn huge and his fangs dripped a sleeping potion. Paul was a cat and a member of S.A.D, Paul could turn invisible and climb anything, his code name was HUNTER.

(Paul) I entered the room and purred, “Hi, Thor”, Thor was about to respond but I continued,”Lets go now and we can talk in the car, we’ll take your car but I’ll drive”. Thor pressed the button on his collar and the wall slid open to reveal his car. “Oh, Thor, Paul, I put a potion in your collars that will dissolve the most stickiest webs”, called Agent 12½. Then I pressed the go button and we sped through the tunnel.

(Thor) Soon we shot out and were on the highway, Paul almost crashed into ten cars, five houses, three posts, and one plane. I guess he needs more driving lessons then I do. When we got to Baron Von Webs hideout we stopped. I expected a cave or tunnel but it was a large warehouse. We jumped of my car and walked in, it was full of boxes and crates. Paul gave instructions, “You watch for anything and I will try to find Lady Flopsy and Lea Dea”. Then Paul vanished, I watched a mouse run across the floor and through a hole in a pile of boxes, then after a second the pile fell across the floor. I sighed. Cats always chase mice and other rodents.

After about an hour I felt something drip on my head. I looked up, nothing. Another drop hit my eye, I guessed it was raining or there was a puddle of water on the roof. Soon I began to get sleepy and I lay down and fell fast asleep.

Agent SNORE, Mission 120418: Take Me Out of the Ball Game

Thor dictated this story to me. I illustrated it, because Thor is not a very good artist, he gets slobber all over everything.

I was rolling on my back, enjoying myself when alarms suddenly started to blare. I jumped up and raced to the door. Agent 12½ opened the door, “Agent SNORE, we have trouble”.

SNORE is not my real name, it’s Thor. SNORE is my code name and I am a secret agent in the Super Animal Department, SAD for short.  I am also a English mastiff, six years old, and able to speak English and Cat fluently. I can send a shock wave with a loud bark, and if I want, my slobber will stick to anything.

When I got inside, Agent 12½ continued, “We need your help, the evil Dr. Boul Ing Bal is in the county”. Dr. Boul is my arch-enemy. Dr. Boul would harm the bowling pin inhabitants of a city, then disappear for a few weeks so no one would find him, then terrorize another town. Last time we saw him I stuck a tracking bug on him.

“I’ll happily help,” I barked. “Good boy,” Agent 12½ replied. “I knew you could help, Agent 8¼ has the tracker”. I rushed over to Agent 8¼ who stuck the tracker to my collar. Happily I scratched my collar and it opened the secret cave that has my specially designed bed/car. I hopped in and placed my paws on the wheel, “Get him this time SNORE” Agent 8¼ called. Then my car door closed, and I shot off through the tunnel.

I shot out through a cave and hit the highway. By the time my tracker found where Dr. Boul Ing Bal was, I had almost crashed into five lampposts, three mailboxes, and two trucks. I guess I need more driving lessons.

When I saw Dr Boul, he was in his sphere-mobile rolling over all the pins in the park. I drove over and parked in the parking lines, and jumped out of my car. Suddenly the sphere-mobile rolled right toward me! I barked and every tree within twelve feet of me uprooted, but the sphere-mobile still rushed at me! I slobbered my sticky slobber where the sphere-mobile was rolling. Then I jumped out of the way and the sphere-mobile stopped, covered in slobber. Dr. Boul Ing Bal jumped out of the sphere-mobile and started to run, a few of the braver pins captured him.

We placed Dr. Boul in my car. Then Agent 12½ and Agent 8¼ locked him in the shed. I took a long nap, when I woke up I realized

Mission Accomplished

 

The Ark

Last Christmas, Oma and Opa gave us tickets to see the Ark Encounter over Thanksgiving weekend. Oma and Opa also got a house/hotel for the whole family!  We drove down on Thanksgiving day.

The next day we went to the Ark. After parking we got on a bus to the Ark. Then we started exploring the first floor. It had some animals and lots of food storage bags.

On the second floor, they had more animals, and some real ones. Also Noah’s family’s living quarters. The third floor had things that happened after the flood.

Then it was nighttime. We went and saw ChristmasTime. Uncle Sam and Aunt Lilly treated us ice skating, it was our first time so mom took lots of pictures of us.

Then we went back to the hotel. It was fun, thank you Oma and Opa!

Flopsy’s Notes: Chalk

Dear Mommy, I love you and miss you ∀ lot and hope you get home soon. It has been fun here but I want to see you.

I have been trying black raspberries, they are good if you pick them black! The red ones are disgusting.


Outside is nice but a little wet, but they will not let me out without a leash. ∀lso ∀udrey (The shift key and the a key together keeps doing weird things) keeps leaving without me. ∀nd also they scolded me when I ate Thor’s food before he ate it and I snapped at him. Even though he eats my food after I eat it.

We played with chalk. It was super fun! I drew a butterfly, and Thor drew a note for Auntie Joyce that said I love you on it. Mine was better 🙂 .

I love you

Love,

Flopsy

 

Flopsy Notes : Thunderstorm!

 Dear mommy I miss you a lot and love you.

Today was fun, Jonathan was happy and I was happy too but then he wanted to see the goats more then me 🙁 ! But when he came back he played with me a little.

Later Adrian gave a science lesson about animals, there are more then one million different kinds of animals! Then Megan read a Dick and Jane.

There also was a thunderstorm it was VERY scary, I was in Audrey’s arms and crying. Then the UPS came, Auntie Joyce would not let me bark and gave me detention (I had to sit quietly until he left), she also would not let me bark my opinion on TailBook. 

I have been eating most of my food lately and Thor have been acting like a gentleman, when I am done eating, he cleans off my plate (he ate the rest of my food), then washes it out (licks it out). I try to act nice too, but his bowl is too big for me to clean.

I love you a lot,

Love,

Flopsy

Flopsy notes: School work

Dear Mommy,

I love you and miss you LOTS, but I am not sure if I want to go back and see you or stay here. I am learning a lot.

I am learning to add, subtract, multiply, divide and fractions. I am learning capitals too. Did you know the word fractions has the same first letter as my name? They look different though, fractions has a little f and my name has a big f like this; F.

Then Audrey gave me a lesson on butterfly’s. She said she wants to be a Lepidopterist which is a fancy name for someone who studies butterflies.

Later they had me put paw prints on a piece of paper to send to Andrea, like Morris did with his hoof in Morris Goes to School (I read it today). He learned some of the same things I am learning! The book was fun.

I Love You A Lot Mommy,

Love Flopsy

Releasing Butterflies

We released butterflies at the park and in our backyard. Most of them flew off quickly but a few stayed on for a while.
