I hate it when my human cries. I feel so helpless and lost when she’s sad. She cried this morning and there was nothing I could do to help her. I was going to get the ball and cheer her up with a game of fetch, but Shasta said I shouldn’t because it wouldn’t help. Then I listened very carefully as she explained just why she was crying.
I get it now. She loves her country so much and she doesn’t think it will survive. She is afraid she’ll never get it back. I think it’s sort of how I felt when she left me at that place a few weeks ago. I was really scared I would never see her again.
I have decided that I’m going to pay more attention to her lessons every day. I’m going to be like my sister, Shasta, and help my human keep her country free. I know I’m just a puppy but like she tells me every day…”Every little bit helps, Patton!” I know I can help.
If we all pitch in just a little, we can make a difference. Will you help me help my human keep the America she loves alive?
