Last week some guy named Earl came into Belize…..everybody on the island was worried he was going to be bad and destroy a lot of things.
I never got to meet this Earl person…..all I know about him is that he rushed into my island in the middle of the night and wrecked tons of stuff. He tore up everybody’s boat docks and ripped down trees. I don’t like this Earl guy at all. He made a mess of my home and destroyed some of my favorite beach bars.
But one good thing did come from Earl – I met a new friend!
The nice people at the SAGA Humane Society here in San Pedro were so worried about the bad things Earl was going to do while he was in town, that they wanted all of their dogs to find safe places to stay. They didn’t want Earl to hurt any of our island potlickers.
When my people told me we were going to SAGA to pick up a new friend, I was so excited! This was going to be my first island slumber party!
We pulled up to SAGA…
When we walked inside, Katia brought out my roomie……
Chunk and I got along great so Katia said he could come home with us.
I have to admit I was a little jealous that he was small enough to ride in the front of the golf cart with my people.
When we got home I showed him around my house and gave him one of my toys.
He really liked playing with that toy until I showed him the view.
Chunk loved looking out at the water…..
I was a little worried that he might fall through the railing, but he was just big enough.
I brought Chunk inside and he started walking on all of the furniture!
I thought my people were going to be mad at him, but they didn’t seem to care.
I got out my playing cards and asked Chunk if he wanted to play poker, but he said he didn’t know how to play!
What dog doesn’t know how to play poker?
Now I was bummed…..I was really hoping to get a good poker game going.
That was my “I’m so bummed” face…..Next time my people offer to foster a dog, they better make sure he knows how to play poker.
Chunk is a great guy…..he is living at SAGA and is up for adoption! Contact SAGA for more information about this cool dude. ***Update! Chunk was adopted just a few months after this tale was written. He is loving his life in the states!***
The next morning I learned that Earl made a mess of our home….he even destroyed my friend Sunny’s mom and dad’s bar too……while everyone was cleaning up they found this sign…..it used to hang at the Palapa Bar….
Because no great story started with Earl.
