Down Girl's Song

Life doesn't get any more fun than this!

Hi, I'm Down Girl, the intelligent, beautiful dog who lives next door to my friend Sit. We spend most of our time chasing squirrels and that sneaky Here Kitty Kitty who jumps the fence into our yard and touches our stuff.

The best part of my life is that I have a car! I always drive ... well, actually I get to put my feet on the steering wheel, but my master, Rruff likes to drive. You won't believe the places I go and the crazy things that happen to Rruff, and me! Why, I've even written a book about it: Down Girl and Sit On the Road. You can come along on the road with us!

You can read about our trip to the beach when I got to drivel and our camping trip when Rruff forgot to bring his food! And, yes, I hate to say it... you can come along on our trip to The Lady in the White Coat.

Now, your teacher will say it's all about learning about POINT OF VIEW but I think you'll find it's all about how much you LOVE DOGS and THE FUN you have with us!!

Life doesn't get any more better than this!
