A Sparkey Tail

I was really having a great dream. I was chasing squirrels, but they always jumped up the tree before I could catch them. But they are still fun to chase.Then I heard granny get up and go into the bathroom. Her and papa do that a lot at night. But when she came out she didn’t go back to bed, instead she turned the light on. I knew something was up, but I was still tired and didn’t want to get up, so I just closed my eyes. Then papa got up and I thought what the heck is going on, it was way too early to get out of bed. 
They both got dressed and went into the kitchen but I stayed in bed. Then I heard Raine get up ( she’s the teenager human in our family). I could hear them talking and walking around. I still stayed in my bed. If they wanted to get up early that was fine, but I wasn’t about get out of my cozy warm bed. But then I heard Papa say “Sparkey, want to go for a ride”. I shot out out of my bed ran into the kitchen and slid on the floor trying to stop.

We all got in the car, and headed out. But where? Now in the back of my mind, I started thinking. Are they taking me for a haircut? No I just had one. Not sick so shouldn’t be the vet. Unless they are going somewhere and not taking me with, so their taking my to “Red Woof Inn”. Please no. As my worrying was getting worse they turned and we were heading out in the country. Phew, no bad place out there.

After we rode for awhile, we pulled into some farm. Inside the fence were theses funny looking animals. I know there weren’t cows or horses because I’ve seen them before and they did not look this funny.
We all got out of the car and walked over to some man. He lead us though a gate and all theses funny looking creatures started walking up to us.

I start to slowly back away, so papa picked me up. I was shaking. Papa said to me “Sparkey they’re just alpacas. What? What the heck is al al paca?
These funny animals head a furry head, but the rest of them were shaved down to their skin. The man was starting to us explaining things to us, but I had no idea what they were talking about. I sniffed at one of them and it spit a me, and some got on papa too, but the rest just laughed at us. 
Well that was enough for me (and papa). We soon all got back in the car and head home. It will be too soon if I ever meet another al, al al whatever it was.
