New President-Elect Barack Obama has shown good sense already. He promised his daughters a puppy. My mom read this article aloud to me.
Frankly, I think Obama should forget about getting a puppy. The White House is no place for house training, crying and mess. He should do what my mom Cathy does: get a nice full-grown, mixed-breed dog from a shelter.
At least he’s not getting a cat, like the Ford administration. There’s hope for the country.

A friend turned me onto your blog and I have to say I love it! I have a rescue dog myself named Daisy the Wonder Dog (http://daisythewonderdog.blogspot.com/) and the way you describe your life sounds very similar to how I think Daisy would describe her life. In fact, my mom is a dog walker and pet sitter and her pet pals often write notes to their parents much like you write your blog!
I got Daisy just as I was losing my other dog, Aspen, so I understand how it must have been for your mom when she had to adjust to this new dog.
Keep writing your stories. I love them!
Thanks, Mel! I love dog walkers. My Aunt Sara takes me to the park twice a week so I can run with the other dogs. My mom gets lots of work done while I’m gone (and I’m really sleepy for the next 2 days).
Mom still misses her First Dog, Keesha. But as long as I have my spot on the couch (and my big bowl of crunchies), I don’t mind being the Second Dog.
I’ll send my mom over to your blog and we hope to hear from you again.
