Dear Ms. Karen,
First, let’s be clear. I was much more excited about the Green Beef Tripe than being a fashionista. Mama L. had that same scrunched up nose squinty eyes disgusted look on her face when she first opened up the can of green tripe. As soon as that aroma wafted up into her nostrils, she held that can as far away as she physically could while dishing it out onto our plates. But I know that’s how much she loves us. By many accounts, green tripe is possibly the best thing you could ever feed your dog. She wouldn’t let a little smell get in the way.
Of course, breakfast was gone in a matter of seconds. I have always prided myself in being a little lady when it comes to meals. I always show the proper etiquette of politely nibbling the food to let Mama know that I am not a pig. Unlike Gingersnap! who consumes every meal in less than 18 seconds. We know this because Mama L. actually timed her. That said, WOW!! I just couldn’t control myself when she put that plate of tripe down for us. I have never had food quite that good ever before!!
For Christmas, (and I have been a very good dog all year), I would like for Santa to deliver five thousand cases of green tripe. It can be from cows, deer, buffalo, lamb. I’m not picky.
Well, I guess we can now discuss the Doggles. I blame Little G! for this. First, she’s always squinting lovingly at the Mamas when the sun is out. This caused Mama M. to exclaim that they need to provide UV protection for us. Then there was that romp at the beach when Gingersnap! got sand in every orifice imaginable! Naturally the Mamas decided that Doggles are the way to go.
They don’t feel that great. I think they’re too big for my head. Maybe I’m just not used to them yet. I do look kinda cool, though, don’t you think? Like one of those dogs that is ready for adventure at a moment’s notice. Should I ask Mama L. for a motorcycle helmet, do you think?
