Soon Alex starts squirming. As she opens her eyes she is being licked by her yellow lab, Gretchen. Gretchen heard her thrashing on her bed and came over to investigate. She figured shed better wake Alex up.
As Alex awakes and sees Gretchens concerned look, she happily hugs her dogs neck.
It was all a DREAM Gretchen!! All a dream! Gretchen continues to lick Alexs face.
Alex looks out her window and she sees Killer chasing Muffin, but Muffin is too clever for him! She darts up a tree while Killer jumps up and down fruitlessly below. Alex smiles.
Alex gets up, dresses quickly and runs downstairs. Her Mom is in the kitchen making breakfast. She is dressed like she normally is. She says, Good morning, dear! Sleep well?
Yes, Mommy. How are you this morning?
Fine, dear! Hows pancakes sound for breakfast?
