Dog Letter #2

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:

Dear Mikey,

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

Dear Mikey,

Oh man! Mom said that I could not leave this morning until I wrote you an email. Can you believe it? I sure as heck am not going to spend a lot of time on this one!
