My niece Emma isn't really a puppy dog.
But she is as awesome as she looks. Check out how well she entertained Davis when he got bored at Christmas, even when she was already dressed for the ball (except her glass slippers):
She just had a birthday. . . the one that looks like infinity if you lay it over on its side: "8"
I sent her what I would have wanted for my eighth birthday. If you don't know Bad Kitty you are missing.all.the.fun.
She also got a special trip to Great Wolf Lodge with her friend Sammie. Don't you wish the place where you spent your birthday looked this much fun?
Last time Emma visited me she wrote me some books. The first one was called "Canser." It was dedicated to a lot of people, including me and Uncle HaHa (which is what she calls Walter). It went like this:
The next page had the title "Lucky" with the picture of a person in a wheelchair, saying "Yay" and a doctor saying "Cured."
After that came the page titled "Not Lucky." I'll let you imagine what the picture looked like.
I'm thinking of making copies and sending it to my Congressman and Senators who are on recess right now instead of working in DC on the sequester.
