Large and in Charge
Masha and Dasha are enjoying a few weeks of R and R at a coastal retreat along the Baltic. Fashionable Riga residents like Masha always escape the summer heat of the big city for a little quality time at the beach. The vacation getaway is the town of Saulkrasti, which sits about 25 miles east of Riga. The family settled down in a cozy dacha. The dacha came with the four-legged friend but this sobachka (that's Russian for dog) won't be making the trip back to Riga.
Grandpa and grandma know that Masha's birthday is just a month away. A sobachka might make the perfect present. But it better be a stuffed one, otherwise we would be disowned by mom and dad!
