The words smelled like the mighty oceans mist. The words tasted salty on my lips. I cupped my hands to my ears, and I listened. I listened very carefully,,, to the familiar voice, as it drifted ,, across the mountains and over the tallest forest trees. The voice was so familliar and yet so sad. The words, repeadily echoed over and over. "Tweedles Help Us, " "Come to us, we need you." "Tweedles Help Us". As fast as a star can fall from the sky, at that very moment, I knew. Yes, I understood what I must do. I knew who was calling and what I must do. I must go. I must go NOW.
"PUFF! " My Magic Sea Horse, My forever friend who lived at the big ocean, needed me. Puff was calling my name, he needed me. I ran over the mountains and through the rivers. I ran as fast, as my paws could run. The rains were pouring down on me, but it didn't matter. I must run and help Puff. As I neared the racing ocean tides, there on the sand before me- lay Puff. Puff should never be out of the water, but there he lay. I snuggled next to Puff and lay my head on his chest. I heard his heart beating. I whispered in his ears. Tears began to trickle from my eyes, as I cuddled closer. A slight whisper came from Puff's lips, as he started to speak. His voice was very faint. Puffs lips quivered as he whispered,,,,,, "The Sea is crying. " "Something terrible has happened to the Worlds Sea. Oil is everywhere. Oil is leaking bad. All of the sea creatures have no water to drink, and no food. All of our friends, Star -the star fish, and Murphy your little turtle friend, and all the Glow Fish, and Dolphins, and Whales and Manatees, and Crabs,,,and birdies,,, There are too many to name them all, but they need help, Tweedles. They need help now. They have oil in their eyes, and oil on their wings. I was trying to help them, but oil got in my eyes, and I could not see."
As my tears splashed into the eyes of Puff, he blinked. In an instant, Puff looked at me. "I can see , I can see"! "Your tears helped me" Puff said. Words flowed from Puffs lips, like bubbles in the sky. The sea birds, have oil on their wings. We must help them. What can we do? Do you think our tears will help them too? The sea cannot sleep. It is fighting for its life. The Sea is crying. I cannot sleep, I cannot rest. I cannot sleep knowing my Sea friends are hurting. Their eyes hurt. Their wings can't fly . Their families are lost. Oh my gosh,,,,,,, They cannot find their families!!!! This is your Sea, and mine. There is a raging storm and I cannot sleep. As I wiped the oil out of Puffs eyes, his sad eyes looked at me. and he asked for one more favor. "Tweedles," Puff said." Will you help me back out into the Sea? "I must go now, and help our friends, Tweedles. "I must guide them to safety." As I gently rolled Puff out into the roaring tides, Puff looked back at me. "Send for help Tweedles, send for help". And then,,,,, Puff disappeared into the sea. My heart sank. My smiles frowned. I turned around and started my long journey home. I traveled over the mountains and through the rivers. When I got home I snuggled into bed to rest ,,,, But, I did not sleep.
I am going to think of ways to help our Sea friends. Will you help me? I will ask Mother Earth to help too. Will you help me? Nitey Nite my friends love tweedles
Hi! I used to be three, but now I am six years old! I am a happy puggy.
I live in the forest, and I talk to the trees.
My wish for all the other little animals in the world- is that they have a "forever home", just like me.
I love being loved- and I wish it for you!
