Big Bangs in Barga

Big Bangs in Barga

Wakey Wakey Shaky Wakey. Big stretches, thud. Walk Dad? I went to the door and pawed it with my magic paw. “Hold on Poppy, stop scratching the door”, said dad. Dad opened the door and I jumped out of Betsy. Mmmm Mr sun is hiding today, I don’t like the look of that sky. Dad didn’t either, so much so he put my equafleece to go into town. We reached the old town and Dad let me off leash. Where we go today Dad? Lets go to the top of the town.

The sun started to get ready for bed and we decided it was probably time for us to do the same. I was shattered with the stress of the BANG BANGS. I hope they don’t come back. I noticed Mum had got an umbrella, not seen one before, where did she magic that one up from? We said our good nights and headed back to Betsy.
