Why is everybody picking on me!Everybody keeps them saying, "Shelby, Shelby! Why aren't you writing anything?"
Cause I am busy! Unlike some boys I is still got Christmas toys I has not broked! And I has to have my naps and they is dogs around my house that needs beating up!
And nobody is paying me!!
I am so poor and nobody am giving me the money they owes me!
Look at this!
There am my old student Jack, and that am the mom and that am Baby Samuel. See how Jack am guarding them real good? You can see that! See how he am looking at Sam and wondering if Sam has got him any cookies to give to a dog who am guarding him real good?
Who do you think taught him to do all that complicated stuff?
It were me! But I keeps checking my bank account and you know who has never ever got paid for teaching Jack all this great stuff?
Nobody ever pays you when you am a poor girl who am too far away to beat you up!
I is filing a complaint. I is not paying no taxes this year cause all you people owes me money!
Look there. That am my brother, Jimmy. Do see what he am wearing? A NEW HAT!! You don't see me wearing no new hat, do you? Cause I is too poor. Now I figure Jimmy owes me a nickel a day just for me letting him tell everybody he am my brother. Wouldn't you pay a nickel to tells everybody I was your sister?
You is probably thinking, "Shelby, it would be worth two nickels just to let people know you are my friend! If we were family I can't imagine how much that would be worth!"
That am a good think you got there.
You know who owes me the most money?
He owes me for being his lawyer and for giving him great fighting lessons and for all the bets he loses to me! If he paid me what he owes me I bet I would only be kind of poor!
Blue has goned out to get him a job! He says it will be good training for when he goes to see my brother Jimmy. He thinks that they is going to start them a business! Can you imagine what kind of people would want to do business with two boys?
It scares me!
I told Blue he could write to Jimmy here and show Jimmy how much business he is learning. Blue told me he were going to write this great book and then people would all learn something smart from him and learn that boys are almost as smart as us girls!
I don't really think boys can learn anything except how not to pay me!
Blue has writ this story up all by hisself.
I weren't going to help him unless he paid me!
It am not too bad, not too bad. It am too good for a boy to has done all by himself!
I think his mom helped him. Blue can't take no good pictures that am for sure.
There am Blue standing next to me trying to look like he am a great story telling writing dog.
He am not!
Aren't I just the cutest thing?
Hey, does you see how Baby Sam am nearly as cute as me?
Of course he am not so talented as me. It am a good thing he knows me so I can teach him some good stuff! One good thing Sam already does know is don't owe me no money.
I am going to start me a new business too. I is going into the collecting me all the money that am owed me business!
Here am Blue's story. It don't have me in it so you might want to skip it.

Shelby is back. Murphy and Sam are so cute. Jimmy looks very nice in his new hat. I liked Blue's story. He is funny and I think he is a good writer.

I am glad to see everybody back. I like our new friend Murphy and Sam. I have a hat like Jimmy has.

Shelby you are wonderful. It is very nice of you to let Blue write a comic book. Murphy is cute. I like Sam too. He looks very little. I think Jack is protecting him good. Jimmy is funny. I like it when Jimmy dresses up.

I think Blue is smart to teach you not to play in the street. There are boys on my street who are always playing in the street. Shelby is always beautiful.

Yes you are one of the two cutest things!! The other one is here with me. I was glad to see what you were doing, I know you are a very busy girl and have lots of very interesting things to see and do.
It looks like you are doing a fine job teaching Blue, and that Blue had lots of fun with Murphy. Maybe Blue can get nickels from Murphy next time he goes to work with his mom.
Say hi to Blue and Robin from me. Big kisses!

That's a really cool hat isn't it? I'm smiling because I know I look really snazzy wearing it. I bet Keith looks really snazzy in his hat, too! A very special hello to Fiona and Jenny!
I'm glad that Blue went to work, he needs to learn how to do work stuff for our business. Boys can do good in business, too, Shelby. It looks like Blue and Murphy had a lot of fun.
What new adventures are you planning?

Hooray. I had given up on you. This was a very nice read. Blue is very funy. I think you are funnier than Blue. My favorite storys are when you and Ben would have adventures. I think that nephew Sam is cute. What kind of dog is Murphy? I would like to see you and Murphy do something. Are you and Jimmy going to do something. You always make me laugh. I wish I could have a dog and that dog can be like you.

You have so many friends. I am glad I am your friend. Jacks baby is so little. How old is Murphy. Blue is smart. My sister got hit by a car and broke her leg. She didn't have to go to school. Bye.

It is nice to let Blue tell his story. It was good. I liked Murphy. I like you talking more. You are the great talking dog and the best dog. I liked the baby picture. They look nice. Please talk more Shelby.

Shelby should tell jokes on Monday and Blue on Tuesday and Robin on Thursday and Sam and Murphy on Thursday and Shelby can make up a good game on Friday. I have no web on Satrday and Sunday so you dont have to do anything.
