SOS from Grace
Hullo, Internet people? My name is Grace and I am a Rottweiler dog and I think you might have heard my Mama talking about me lately. Well, I need someone to help me. You see, my leg wasn't working right and my Mama took me to see that nice man that I like very much and he petted me and told me I was pretty and then he gave me some weird medicine that made me very sleepy and when I woked up, there was this big cut on my leg. Well, it hurt some of course, but I am a ROTTweiler which as you know is a big, strong, brave dog and I only cried a little bit and Mama gave me some medicine that made the hurt go away and I really think my leg is getting better already, but now I have a new problem.
You see, these little threads in my cut are making my leg very, very itchy, and you know, when something itches, you just HAVE to lick it and so I was licking it last night, and Mama said "Grace, no lick." Well, I am a Very Good Dog and I almost always do what Mama says, unless there is a good reason not to, and so I tried, I really, really tried, but then I just HAD to lick again. And then Mama got out That Awful Thing that she made me wear once before and she put it on me and it is STOOPID and I hate wearing it because I keep bumping into things and those damn cats are laughing at me behind Mama's back and ooooh, I am so sorry I said a bad word, but really it is not nice of those mean ol' cats to laugh at me.
And so I wrote a letter to my Auntie Lisa who loves me and only has that other dog as a temporary substitute because she misses me so much and I asked her to ask Mama to take the Awful Thing off, but she won't. So please, I know that a lot of you love dogs and you would never make them wear an Awful Thing and so won't you puh-LEEZE tell Mama to TAKE THIS THING OFF! I promises that I won't never lick my leg ever, ever again. Thank you very much.
