My wife likes to write long, thoughtful and complete letters to our campers. Me – I’m a get-to-the-point kind of guy – unless I’m writing a funny letter, in which case I become an author or a comedian with a long setup. Read on to learn about the different types of letter-writers. Continue reading ‘What Type of Letter-Writer Are You?’

So I just wrote my daily email to my camper. Yikes – my dog had more to write about than I did. In fact, his letter was 3x as long as mine. If you’re looking for a letter-writing idea, try taking a different perspective, such as that of your dog as I did in an earlier post. Here’s today’s letter:
It’s Fido here. Mom took for a long walk in the morning and gave me breakfast. I waited in the crate for Dad to let me out. Dad actually took me for a five-minute run and at one point, I actually ran ahead of Dad – that was fun!
Dad went out so I went back into my crate. When he got home, Dad let me out. At around 3, I barked at Dad. It’s like he just doesn’t get me – I was b-a-r-k-i-n-g. Obviously I wanted something. But what was it? Well, I just wanted a nice walk to survey my domain. Anywho, he figured maybe I needed to do my business, so he took me for a long-ish walk up and down the street. No business…. But it was great to get out for some fresh air.
Later on, with everyone away, I was getting bored, so I started jumping up and down and barking at Dad. So Dad and I played fetch. He tossed different toys and I ran furiously after them. I love that feeling of running from one end of the house to the other, jumping over shoes and anything else in my way. Eventually I was getting bored so I brought two other toys for Dad to throw. But eventually I got bored with that too, so I just took my toy away and went to sit by the front door. Sometimes I like “Fetch” and sometimes I just don’t. It’s a dog’s life…
About an hour later, I barked again and jumped on Dad’s leg, so he gave me dinner. I love dinner! Hee hee hee… Dad thought that was enough for me – but he wr-ong! I sniffed something tasty in the dining room, so later on I secretly jumped on a dining room chair and grabbed Mom’s bread bag from the table, ripped the bag and had bread for dinner too! I just don’t know why Mom leaves bread on the dining room table.
Later, Dad was sitting watching TV with me at his feet. I started to walk all over the family room and whine. No barking, just a whine and a whimper. Wow, he finally gets it! He thought maybe I had to do my business and that’s exactly what I did when he took me for another walk! That Dad – he’s the best even if I do have to bounce up and down and bark at him when I need stuff.
Can’t wait to slobber on you 4 weeks from Thursday. Hope you’re having fun.
Fondly, Your Dog Fidooooooooooooooooo

This is Fido! “Wuff.. huff… flibbit…. Wuff wuff wuff slurp drool slurp!”
Oh, you need me to translate? That means… “I sure do miss you! The place is not the same without you. But I’ll save a great big slurp for you when you come home!”
Anyways, it’s been a busy day around here! This morning I went for a nice long walk. It was fun because I chased a few squirrels. I chased my tail too – but I could never catch it! I came home and had a great breakfast of yummy dog food… you would have loved it.
Later on, the mailman came by to drop off a package. But I barked really loudly so he jumped and DROPPED the package (ah ha!). I thought it was funny but the package contained the crystal bowl that Mom had ordered and it broke and she was not so happy. I don’t know why, but I spent the rest of the day in my crate….
Well, I’ll bark at you soon! Hope you’re having fun.
