Lewis & Clark: A Rainy Day in the Vineyard

“Clark, why must you run around and get all sopping wet in
the rain?”  said Lewis, who was laying on
the inside of the open garage. 
“It’s so much fun, Lou!” yelled Clark before jumping in a

Clark continued to prance through the rain, trying to catch
every raindrop in his mouth.  He was
continuously finding ways to try and get Lewis to come out, but every attempt
seemed to fail.  All of the sudden Clark
was struck with a brilliant idea!  He ran
into the garage and found Lewis’s favorite stuffed raccoon toy and drug it out
into the rain.  “Oh  Leeewwwwiiiiisssss, look what I have,” Clark
said mischievously. 
“Clark! What do you think you’re doing?”  Lewis started, “That is MY toy and you know
“Whatcha gonna do about it?”
Lewis stood up, quite perturbed and made his way into the
rain.  The little droplets did feel kind
of soothing on his chocolate brown fur. 
Lewis smirked before running after Clark who was excited that his buddy
was finally coming to play with him. 
Clark ran to the other side of the driveway, and Lewis snatched the
other end of the raccoon toy.  They spent
the rest of the afternoon in an exciting game of tug-o-war, that amused every
guest who walked in.
“See, Lewis, you never know if you like something until you
try it.”
“Yea, Yea,” Lewis said, “I guess you can be right every once
in a while, you silly mutt.”
