A Springtime Letter From Sheldon

Written By: B.D. Butler - May• 14•13

photo (14)Spring is here, and it’s been awhile since I had the time to sit down and write you a letter.  Napping and scratching is time-consuming, don’t judge.  As we all know I’m still a puppy, regardless if I am 85lbs or not.  As my dad says, for what I lack in smarts I make up for in looks.  Hey, I’m pretty.

I’ve been watching The Godfather and boyz n the hood and it got me inspired to send you a message.  I would have sent you a horse head in your bed, but your cages aren’t big enough, I couldn’t find one on eBay and I am not allowed to play with knives.  That’s beside the point, it’s the thought that counts.

You are worse than the other two.  You talk more than any parrot I have ever met and you interrupt my naps and quiet time.  Constantly making whistles, barks, laser beams and now you have learned to figure out which one of us is barking outside and call out the appropriate name. Rude!  So that makes you a snitch.  You know what they say, “snitches get stitches”.  So watch your back… I will be waiting for you to drop a toy, or treat off the top of your cage.  Then it’s mine.  No give-backs.

That all being said, finally, you birds may out number us (Clay and I) for now, but eventually Bella is going to be moving to Colorado with Nana, and it will be all even Steven again.

And then, it’s on.
