Dear Lucy,

You are a dog, not a cat.  The purring, stealing and hiding of shiny stuff, tree climbing and scratching, among other cat-like behaviors is very odd coming from a dog.

Love,
The amused one.

Dear Falcor,

I know you think that sleeping on my bed is your right. And it's very sweet that you want to sleep on my feet, plus it keeps my toes very cozy during these cold nights. But honestly, you should know by now that I always roll over during the night. There's no need to dramatically jump and bark every time I do that.

Love,
Me

OK, I must ask... what breed is Falcor?

Luck Dragon.

Excellent guess.  ;)

For those who don't embrace his more magical side, the SPCA said he's half spaniel/half shepherd. Based on how he looks, I'd say the spaniel half is clumber spaniel and the shepherd half is Australian shepherd. His face looks just like the original Falcor's and he's got a slightly long torso for his legs.

A friend and I always called Great Pyrenees "luck dragons" and I've always said if I have another GP, it will be named Falcor.

Dear Dart,

Glad you are feeling better. I am very proud of you for learning to use the bell. Would you be a dear and start going outside with the others? Getting up at 3:00 am is no fun, especially when insomnia has been on the menu lately.

Love,
Your very sleepy foster mom.

Miss Bailey - 

You are a 60 pound Lab. Cap'n Jck is a 10 pound Yorki who has no clue he's a dog. Please calm down when you come inside to play with him or you won't be allowed in anymore.

Jack Jack -  chill already. You really are a dog, not a people/cat. Bailey just wants to play and she's very sweet. Deal with it and share

I have a chocolate Lab called Bailie too!

Except mine is a 75 pound tubby-butt.

Ahem. I vote for you dressing him up as a dragon for halloween.

It's his annual costume and he loves it. OK, maybe he doesn't love it, but he tolerates it well and seems to enjoy the cheese I keep feeding him. He does love his Christmas elf costume: he prances with the jingle bells.

Ours is a fox red - and on her way to tubby if daddy doesn't start walking her more

Dear Smokey,

Please make note that we do not change the carpeting color by dragging variously colored foods around on the carpet.  If we want a new color in the carpet, we have to buy new carpet.  Please stop dragging cocoa powder onto our beige carpet in an attempt to make it brown. 

Love,

The extremely unamused people

Dear Honey Girl;

That dark object underneath the AC window unit is the insulation.  It fills the gap between the AC unit and the window frame and keeps the cold air inside.  I don't know how it came loose.  I hope you didn't pull on it!  When I found you growling and staring at the AC unit I wondered whether you were turning Cujo on us.  Thank you for alerting me to the fact that it came loose and needed to be fixed.  I pushed the insulation back into place.

Now stop staring intently under the AC unit.  The insulation is no longer visible because it's where it belongs, between the AC unit and the frame.  Don't pull it out!  Leave it alone!  Nothing to see here folks; Move on already.

Dear Smokey,

Next week there's going to be a change in how we do things.  Normally, if the people go away for awhile, they take you to your favorite place, aka doggie day care, and leave you there.  This time, we're going to have you stay with a person.  You'll like her, and she's extremely happy you're coming to stay with her.  Please be a good dog while you're there.  Do not eat things off her counter, fart in her face, woof at nothing or any of the other behaviors you...delight...us with on a daily basis.  You will have a good time, I promise!  You can even bring your birds with you, so she can have the joy of listening to Angry Birds noises at 6 am. 

Also, my dog, your people will come back for you.  We will always come back for you.  Don't mope and be sad.  Be a good happy dog while we're gone.

Love,

the People

(this is on a walk)

No, we're not going that way. Yes, we know a certain Lab you love to play with lives that way. I wish we could make you understand why we don't take you to see him anymore. He has arthritis and his mom is afraid he'll hurt himself trying to play with you.

Why are you so interested in that Newfoundland girl that just walked by? Does she remind you of your friend from puppy school (who was also a big black Newfie girl?)

And even if we meet another dog who's a friend of yours, we can't let you off-lead to play. We haven't forgotten the time we did that and you and your Labradoodle friend took off together down the street...and it was already after dark.

Bailey - please leave your blankies in your house. It's going to be wet and cold out tonight and you'll need it to be dry. I only have one left then it's back to old towels. The new blankies are much nicer - you know that

Dear Rocky,

I just watched a few cats walk across you.  I'm revoking your status as "dog."  You are henceforth known as species "doormat."

Love,

The human.

Dear Paco,

You are a very strange dog, in that you love going to the vet. And you're so well-behaved at the vet, it amazes everyone, especially the vet. You gave him a kiss after he gave you a shot!  You are seriously bizarre.

So after everyone complimenting you on your amazing behavior, why, why, WHY did you think it was a good idea to pee all over the side of the reception desk on the way out? You met probably the only group of people who think you're a really good dog, and then you had to go and ruin it all.

xoxo,

Me
