Dear Squeak:

Oh, little one.  You race for the door.  The big heavy door on a spring so it closes by itself.  Usually we see you coming and grab it and close it gently.  We didn't see you today!  So sorry, little girl.

But maybe now, you'll stop running hell bent for leather to get out the door.   :P

Many apologies,
The fud lady

(Squeak currently has a very sore nose.  I was afraid she'd caught a paw but nope, just her nose.  And she lived up to her name when it happened.  Poor little girl.)
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Dear Lucas,

Congrats, you've figured out how to game the system by scratching on the door, not go out, oh no! but to get the coming-back-inside treat. From here on out, you have to stay outside for at least a couple minutes, yes, even if it's cold, to get the treat.

Goof dog.

Dear Ned,

Yes, it's a good thing you've got the rounding up instinct-- you better have, considering your beautiful Border Collie breeding and your lovely (dearly departed and missed) grandmother. But I do wish you'd stop trying to round up the goats-- the big one doesn't like you, and she's demonstrated that a few times, but you still don't seem to get it. I will laugh the next time the big one decides to have a go at you.

Love,
The goat wrangler.

Dear Penny

Stop taunting Sooki. You've been injured numerous times by her and you still keep going back for seconds.

Dear Rogie

You have a dog door which we installed at great cost, you use it to go out, then you forget it's there and scrape the door to come in, but when I reluctantly open the door, you run away. Please just use the dog door and stop driving me crazy.

Dear Lexie,

That was a pretty good vet visit, I hope you agree. Your tummy must be feeling happier now. It was a bit traumatic and it's hard for a lady to keep in nice in those circumstances. But you did fine.

The lady who feeds and walks you.

Dear Crash:

What on earth was with the barking all night long?  I wore earplugs but you kept BF awake.  Good job he doesn't have to go to work today and can grab a nap.

From the one who is off to buy a citronella spray refill for your bark collar tonight...

Dear Dodger,

We have an electric dog door and you have a key attached to your collar.
You have no problem using the door when everyone is up and awake.
You don't need to wake me up to walk you to the door at 2 in the morning.  Really.

Luvs,

Tired.

Dear Dog,

I don't like the neighbors much either, but that noise you have been hearing is them moving out.  Perhaps less barking would be nice?  You're making me anxious!
I'm surprised you didn't bark at the postman who was dropping my packages on my doorstep.  Actually, a chorus of "Someone's at the door!" would have been nice for that one.

Love,
Your human

Dear Daisy,

I'm sorry- the groomer comes today. You will soon be a naked spaniel.

Love,
The only member of the household who likes you fluffy.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

I think I need to see a photo of a naked spaniel.
