You have been our sweet sweet puppy dog for the past 6 years. You have been loyal, loving, and at times, annoying and loud. We love you very much. But something really strange is about to happen to you. Even stranger than the time that we brought that cat home. Something much more special to us is going to be coming home with us. His name is Daniel. He will be more important than you, and you will have to learn to share us with him. We will probably forget to feed you for the better part of the week when he gets here. There might even be times when we choose to buy diapers for him instead of food for you. Don't be jealous.
You will probably be shoo'd away, fussed at, and disciplined for putting your dirty face in his face, or trying to get his attention with your sharp paws. Don't make that mistake, it will be the end of your life. Trust me. You have not met the REAL mother in me until you mess with my baby. I don't care if it is rooted out of curiosity and the lack of you knowing better because you are just a dog. Oh, and another thing, don't you dare open that yapper while he is sleeping. I don't care who might be in our driveway. You got this?!?!?
Also, this will probably be the last time I think about you long enough to make an entire post about you. I hope you enjoyed the attention you received while we took pictures of you. Remember that you are the DOG, not a human being. And while you are at it, quit rolling in the dirt. Your white fur is supposed to be WHITE, not a weird shade of orange, because it is entirely possible you may not get bathed again, either. :)
