FANNIE THE PUPPET:
Hey there, friends. It’s Fannie with some fun. It’s time to hear a story about a dog with thumbs. It’s fun to imagine what a dog could do if he or she had thumbs like me and you. Fun4theDisabled is happy to present today’s book, What If My Dog Had Thumbs? written and illustrated by Mike Perry. And now, here’s our reader for today, Bill Drudge.
What If My Dog Had Thumbs by Mike Perry. Mike Perry dedicates this to Bass, who is still trying to open the fridge. Her dedication to this pursuit continues to inspire me, he says. What If My Dog Had Thumbs by Mike Perry.
What if my dog had thumbs? Would she still be lots of fun? Would she run around and play each and every day under that big and beautiful sun? What if my dog had thumbs? Drawers would be no obstacle. The pantry she would explore. Nothing would be impossible, especially not the door. What if my dog had thumbs? Would she open the drawer, pull out a spoon, sit at the table and slowly consume a beautiful pie of homemade legumes and enjoy each and every one?
What if my dog had thumbs? Would she walk around town shaking hands with all of her chums? Or bang on a drum declaring a hum, “I am a dog with thumbs!” What if my dog had thumbs? Would she wear pants to cover her bum? Would she go to the store just to explore what she could wear on the dance floor?
What if my dog had thumbs? Would she still be inspired to run especially for fun? Would she come ’cause now she has keys and knows we’ll protect her from fleas? What if my dog had thumbs? Would she go to the park even after dark and howl at the moon each and every June just to stay in tune with her K9 commune?
Would she ever get glum and just sit on her bum, her way of dealing with the doldrums? Would she ever want to adventure into space, just to make the case that a dog with thumbs could become the first earthling to go beyond the sun?
What if my dog had thumbs? Would she pick apples and make a pie? Would she close her eyes and try to touch the sky?
Maybe she does this already, though this I may never know, but it’s fun to dream and wonder about the places a dog with thumbs might go. The end.
