Journal Entry November 3rd 2011 All I ever wanted was a pet dog. But while I am looking out my window I see 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 ten horses surrounding me and my parents tipi. Since I am only nine, the youngest in my tribe I do not know what to do with the horses or what to say to them. My heart is pounding. My friend Sally has a pet dog named Sam. Sam is such a sweet dog and I really want to go over to her house and see them. I went down stairs to ask my mom if I could go to Sally’s house. My mom said yes. So I went over but instead of walking over I crawled over so the horses will not see me. When I arrived, Sally and Sam were waiting for me outside. When we went in we played dolls for an hour, and then played with Sam for the rest of the time. The time flew by so fast I had to crawl back home, because the horses were still there. One Hour Later I arrived home safely. “Mom since the horses are still here, will they come in our tipi and hurt us”? “No because we have a sturdy door and sturdy windows.” While I was eating my soup, I kept spilling it on me because I was too busy looking at the horses. “After dinner can we go get dad and ask him how get the horses out of here”. I asked. When dinner was over their dad came down stairs to talk about getting the horses out of our property. 30 min later “Go shoo! We know you want food but we do not have any horse food. “ said my Dad. Next Morning It was morning and everything was back to normal. Well not as normal, I was playing with my new dog Max!
