Gramma isn't mad anymore! She held me last night and told me that she
wants me to be a good boy and I can't chew up her shoes anymore...or her
plants. I will really try to be good, I promise. We got up really early today.
Gramma said she has something called insomnia and she can't sleep.
I am glad I don't have it, cause I really like sleeping. All of us dogs got up
with her, but after I went out and peed I got back in the warm bed with Papa.
Hey I am still a puppy, I need my rest! Gramma was cleaning the house--I
could hear her, but Papa slept and slept. Gramma told me later that it annoys
her that Papa can sleep and she can't.
After Papa got up, I did, too. I went and got on the sofa with Oscar and took a
little nap. After that some people Gramma knows came in the store and I had
to go and let them look at me. They touched me, too. I liked the lady, she was
nice. She was pretty, too. Oscar came out in the store and barked and growled
at the people. Papa had to come get him and he got in trouble. Gramma said
that one time Oscar went in the store and peed on a man's shoes! Can you
believe that? I thought it was pretty cool, but I am way too scared to do that to
somebody. I bet he got in big, big trouble when he did that, don't you?
Anyway, after that I played outside with Emmy for awhile and then we took
another nap. Gramma worked in the store and Papa went to work at his other
job. Then she woke me up when some other people came in the store. They
came in the house to look at me. The man was a giant! I thought it was
Gramma coming around the corner, so I got down and was going to go see her
and I saw the man, "Whoa," I said to myself, "I don't know about this guy!"
Oscar told me his name is Bob and he's cool. Oscar said to get used to him,
cause he comes over a lot when the weather is warm and he will play ball with
us. The lady was very gentle with me and I liked her, I licked her hand and
she thanked me. I liked her a lot. Emmy was all jealous, so the lady (Oscar
told me her name is Karen and that she is Bob's wife) picked her up. Those
other people made a big deal about how sweet and cute Emmy is, too.
Hey, I just thought she was another dog like us. She is fun to play with,
though. I like to run up and tackle her. I only do that when Gramma isn't
around, though, cause she yells at me when I do it.
Well, now it is time for another nap. I hope you write me a letter soon. It
makes me not miss you so bad when Gramma reads your letters to me.
Don't ever forget that I love you and you are my boy!
Your dog, Wall-E
