Dear Gavin,
I am sad today. Gramma told me that you have a new dog in your life. Papa held me while I was sad. He told me that he would be so sad if I went away.........
I must admit, that I felt better after Papa held me. But, Papa went to work and Gramma had to go to the grocery. Gramma let me be in charge of us dogs while she was gone and it wasn't even my turn! Even Oscar and Emmy are being extra nice to me today! Emmy didn't tell on me when I tackled her in the yard and Oscar played ball with me after the rain stopped.

Gramma tells me that your new dog is a boxer and his name is Rocky. I don't know if I have ever met a boxer before. Gramma says that he is a big dog. I am a little dog. He is brown brindle and I am white. We are both dogs, but we are different. Gramma says that Rocky likes you a whole lot. I do, too; so I guess we are alike.

Gramma showed me this picture from the ad that your mom saw when she found your new dog. It is hard to tell from this picture if he is nice. Your mom says that he is. I am not worried. I know your mom would never let a mean dog near you. I think she loves you almost as much as I do!

I will be here at Gramma's house waiting patiently to meet your new dog. Your mom tells Gramma that he is a good rider. I don't like to ride, so I am glad that you will be coming here. I just hope that you won't forget all about me. Gramma tells me that you won't. I think I will have to see you again to know for sure. Just remember............ I was your very first pet.

Love, Wall-E

Dear Gavin,
I was watching TV and minding my own business, when I learned that it was Mother's Day. I was stunned! Mothers have their very own day? Emmy tells me that there is also a Father's Day! Is there a dog's day? Oscar laughed at me. I was serious, though. Is there a dogs day? And if there isn't, why not?

For Mother's Day Papa gave Gramma a lawnmower. That is what she asked for. Emmy says that Gramma is practical. Gramma likes useful things. She mowed our yard inside the fence. She said the new mower did a fine job and was easier to start and to push. Us dogs checked it out when she was done. We rolled around in the grass and my hair turned a little green. I was kind of worried that we have to have another bath, but Oscar assured me that we were safe since Gramma just put our flea and tick stuff on us. He was right. Gramma scolded me a little, but then she kissed me on the head. I like it when she does that.

I hope you remembered to give your mom an extra kiss on this Mother's Day. Moms like that, you know. Gramma says that we all need to go out one last time and go to bed. Good night, my boy. I am thinking of you as I go to sleep.

Forever your dog, Wall-E

Dear Gavin,
We went for a ride in that golf cart that Papa gave to Gramma. It was a beautiful, sunny day and Gramma said she had a surprise for me. She said she wanted to protect my eyes......... Oscar started to chuckle............ then he hid. Emmy got under her blanket. Do they know something I don't?

I thought she had a nice treat, then she put this thing on my head and over my eyes. Everything went dark!!

I do not like this, no, I do not!! And, if that wasn't enough, she said we were going for a ride. I don't know if you know this, but I really do not enjoy rides. I get a little queasy as the scenery flashes by and feel the need to hide my face in Gramma's neck.Is that what this contraption on my head is for?

I finally pushed them up on my head. I look ridiculous!! But, I have to admit that the sun wasn't quite so bright with these things called doggles on........

Papa rescued me and held me while I told Oscar and Emmy about my ordeal. They laughed!! I wish you were here, you wouldn't laugh......... would you?

I think I need to go have a long nap now. I am traumatized! She made me have a bath last night, too. Really, really traumatized!

I am counting the days until I see you, my boy!

Your traumatized (I like this new word!!) dog, Wall-E
