I really needed to wash my puppy.
She had grass and mud all in her hair.
She kept running away from me inside the house.
“Stop, Sally!” I said as she jumped up on the couch.
“Get down, Sally!” I said, and she ran fast to my bedroom.
She ran around my room, and then she ran outside through the kitchen.
“Oh, what are you going to do now?” I asked.
I saw her roll and roll in the grass and mud.
Then, she came right to me and sat down.
“Now, you really need a bath!” I said.
