Outdoors!  Outdoors!  Stan’s favorite!  Omigodsomanysmells! 

Where did The Guy go?  Hey!  Look at that!  Stan bounded after the streak and was quickly triumphant.  He trotted back, smiling around the ball of fur in his mouth.  He placed the rabbit on the blanket.  He sat.  And sat.  When would they play?  Didn’t he like playing?  Stan sniffed his face, but he remained rigidly still.  Eventually, Stan felt his whiskers twitch.

Corn dogs!  Woo-woo-woof!  Stan shouted his thanks to The Guy.  Gulping down one then two, Stan gave the third to his rabbit.  Why wasn’t he eating?  Stan bit into the corn dog and dropped the little pieces in front of the rabbit.  What was wrong with his friend?  Stan looked up at The Guy.

The Guy was yelling into the distance and didn’t notice Stan’s request for help.  Stan tilted his head to make sense of the crowd’s synchronized noise.

Rock me baby, rock me all night long
Rock me baby, rock me all night long

The energy!  Woo-woo-woo-woof!  He jumped at The Guy’s happiness.  Then he felt more tension from his rabbit so he slowed down.

Rock me baby, honey, rock me slow
Rock me baby, honey, rock me slow

Stan wagged his tail to the rhythm that electrified his paws.

Rock me baby, like my back ain’t got no bones

Bones!  Stan’s favorite!  Woof!  Woo-woo-woof!  Rockmehowlhowlll!  Stan danced in circles around the blanket and howled with The Guy and the crowd.  He howled at the vibrations in his paws.  He howled for bones!  Bones!  By Stan’s dancing paws and under his wagging tail, his rabbit friend tasted his first corn dog.  Twitch!  Twitch!  Snarf.  Rockmehowlhowlll!
