Perhaps you’ve heard of V.I.P. (Very Important Person)…? Well, tonight at the library, Miss Julie created V.I.D. (Very Important Dog) spots for Snowball and me. I love special treatment!

You see, normally our PAL Pajama Party meets in front of the fire place. Tonight we moved to the meeting room to accommodate Poetry Night on Cedar Street with Mr. E. Ethelbert Miller. The library is such an inspiring place to be!

It has been a thrilling week for me. On Sunday I went to the Washington Animal Rescue League holiday party and had my picture taken with Santa by a Pro-Bone-O photographer… I get a kick out of that! Tee hee. I brought the photo to share with the children tonight. I also brought some of my baby pictures. I looked a bit like the Tramp in the Lady and the Tramp. I am much more ladylike now.

Well, I should get back to dictating my Christmas Wish List; so far I have only three things listed… and I am trying to think of one more--one for each letter of my name!

Every kind of dog treat known to man
Lots and lots and lots of belly rubs
Lots and lots and lots of ear scratches
A year of peace and kindnesses to all people and animals – Yes, that’s a good one!

Perfect. Now I’ll lick the envelope addressed to the North Pole and trot up to the post box to send it.

Au revoir mes amis!
