It is summer now. School is over! We go on a vacation to Turkey. We sit in a big red bus. We go to the airport.
Mommy teaches us how to behave in the airport.
“Dear puppies,” she said. “You are going to fly in the plane for the first time in your life. You need to be nice and polite. Also you need to learn a rule of safety.”
“What rule?” I ask. “Tell us, Mommy, please.”
“The rule is: in the airport you need to stay together and hold the hand of your Mommy or Daddy,” Mother says.
“Ok, Mommy,” we say. “We are going to stay together in the airport!”
We are in the airport now. Daddy parks our big red bus in the parking lot. There are a lot of different cars in the parking lot. A lot of dogs like to travel too. We see a black Mercedes. Two poodles come out of the black Mercedes. Guess who these poodles are?
“Mommy, Daddy!” Timmy cries. “Look, these are our friends Bob and Bill!”
We are very glad to see our friends. Wewalk to their car.
“Hello Rex,” Bob says.
“Hello Mr. Arnold. Hello Mrs. Matilda. Hello Betsy and Timmy,” Bill says.
“Hello our dear friends,” we say. “We are very glad to see you!”
Two big poodles get out of the car. The Lady poodle is white and only her ears are black. And Man poodle is black, but his face and ears are white.
“This is our Mother Mrs. Mary and our Father Mr. Sher,” Bob says.
“Nice to meet you, Mrs. Mary and Mr. Sher” we say.
“Where are you going on a vacation?” My Mother asks.
“We are going to Israel for a week and then to Turkey,” Mrs. Mary answers.
“We are going to Turkey too. We are going to stay there for two weeks. In which city in Turkey are you going to stay?” Our Mother asks.
“We are going to stay in Fethiye,” Mrs. Mary says. “And what about you?”
“We are flying to Dalaman and then we have a transfer to Fethiye.” Mother says.
“This is so wonderful! See you in Fethiye,” Mrs. Mary says. “And now it’s time to go! We do not want to miss our flight!”
“See you in Turkey!” we say.
Oh, our vacation is going to be wonderful!

Guess the riddles
This is a place where people park their cars.
This is a big machine. People use it to fly from one place to another.
We go inside the airport. The airport is very big. It is crowded in the airport. There are a lot of other dogs going to their flights. We remember the rule of safety. We hold our Mummy’s and Daddy’s hands. But Timmy doesn’t follow the rule. He starts to run away.
“Timmy, stop! Come back!” Father cries. “Do you remember the rule of safety? We need to stay together and hold hands.”
Timmy comes back with a sad face.
“But I want to run in the airport,” he says. “It is very interesting to run in a new place. I want to see what the airports looks like.
“Timmy,” says Mother very strictly. “If you run and don’t hold your parents’ hands you can be lost. It is very crowded in the airport.”
“Ok,” says Timmy with a sad voice. “I am going to hold your hand, Mommy. I don’t want to be lost in the airport.”
“All right, Timmy,” Mother says. “Now we need to go to the registration desk, take our boarding pass and give them our luggage.”
“I am not giving my luggage to anyone!” cries Timmy. “I need it myself!”
“Don’t worry, Timmy,” says Daddy. Your luggage will fly with us in the same plane. You can take it back after the flight.”
“All right,” says Timmy.
We go to the registration desk. A nice Lady Dog in a green suit meets us there.
“Good afternoon,” she says. “Where are you flying?”
“Good afternoon, we are flying to Dalaman,” Father answers.
“May I have your passports, please?” Lady asks.
“Here they are,” Daddy gives our passports to the Lady.
The Lady looks at our passports, looks at the computer and gives us our boarding pass.
“Your gate is number eleven,” says the Lady and gives our passports back to Daddy.
“Gate? What is it, Mommy?” asks Betsy.
“The gate to our plane. We need to find it in the airport,” Mother explains.
“Thank you very much!” Daddy says to the Lady.
“You are welcome. Have a nice flight!” The Lady says.
We go to the second floor of the airport on the elevator. We find our gate number eleven. We see a lot of other dogs near the gates.
“Now we need to take our seats and wait. Stewardess will invite us to get on a plane.” Mother explains.
“When the stewardess invites us, I will run very quickly to the plane. I want to be the first!” says Timmy.”
“Oh Timmy, Timmy,” says Mother, “Polite puppies do not run to the plane. They stay in line and wait for their turn to get on to the plane.”
“Waiting is boring,” says Timmy. “Running is fun!”
“But if everyone runs it is going to be dangerous,” says Father.”
“Oh,” says Timmy, “Travelling is not fun. There are too many rules!”
“Timmy, if you do not follow the rules travelling can be dangerous. But if you follow the rules, you can have a lot of fun and be safe!”

We are in the plane. The plane is going to take off very soon. Me, Betsy and Timmy are sitting in the same row in the first class. I have a window seat, Timmy has an aisle seat and Betsy is sitting between us. Our Mother and Father are sitting across the aisle.
Betsy is reading a book about Turkey.
The stewardess comes and says: “Dear passengers, our plane is ready to take off. Please take your seats and fasten your seatbelts.”
We fasten our seatbelts. The plane starts to slowly move and then to move faster and faster. In three minutes our plane takes off!
I look out the window. It is like magic! Everything becomes little: trees, roads, cars, houses…
“Betsy, Timmy, look out the window!” I say.
“Wow!” says Betsy. “It is so beautiful outside! I can see the sky and clouds.”
“Yes,” I say. “I can see the sky and clouds and little houses. It is so wonderful!”
“But I can’t see anything!” Timmy cries. “It is because I have an aisle seat and you – Rex, have a window seat.”
“I understand, Timmy,” I say. “On the way back you will have a window seat and I will have an aisle seat.”
“Thank you, Rex!” Timmy says.
The stewardess comes again and says:
“Dear passengers, now we will offer you some drinks and sandwiches.”
We are very excited.
Mommy says: “Puppies, when the stewardess offers you drinks and sandwiches, please be very polite. You should say: ‘I would like’ instead of ‘I want.”
“Yes, of course, Mommy!” I say.
“Do not worry, Mommy, I will be the politest Puppy,” Timmy says.
Two stewardesses come with a food cart. One stewardess asks me:
“What would you like to eat, Mr. Puppy: a sandwich with fish or with chicken?”
“I would like a fish sandwich, please,” I say.
And what would you like to drink: water no gas, coke, apple juice, orange juice or tomato juice?”
“I would like some coke, please.”
“Here it is.” The stewardess gives me some coke and a fish sandwich.”
“And what would you like, Miss Puppy?” The stewardess asks Betsy.
“I would like a chicken sandwich and some orange juice, please.”
“Here it is,” says the stewardess and gives the food and drink to Betsy.
“And I want two sandwiches with fish, one sandwich with chicken, three glasses of tomato juice and five glasses of coke!” says Timmy.
