One Last Appeal

Dear Sasha, Malia, Michelle, and Barack (or is it Mr. President, now?),

I understand you have 'agreed upon' either the Labradoddle or the Portuguese Water Dog (I wonder how much Sasha's vote counted in your 'Democratic' household?). I can speak from experience that the labradoddle is a fine animal, and likely a distant relative of mine. (The Portuguese Water Dog? One you might happen to stumble across in a shelter? I don't know anything about the breed, but perhaps you can explain the qualities with your legendary soaring rhetoric.)

But I'd like to make one final appeal for the cockapoo. I attached this photo so you might picture what your lawn would look like with an actual cockapooo. All you have to do is imagine a doggie just like me ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE. Can't you picture a small, furry, cockapoo with floppy ears and a short stubby tail romping, playing and fetching on that vast lawn? And how the tourists would 'OOOO' and 'AHHHH' seeing a cute little guy like me. I suggest you call down to the Autumn View Farm and have them send little cockapoo to a shelter so you can go rescue it.

Gee, you know its been very hard to find either a labradoodle or a pure bred water dog at a shelter. The couple I've heard about weren't puppies. Gee, I guess this is going to take longer than I figured. Besides, S&M seem preoccupied now bu other things. Now, will you get off my back, you mutt?

"romping, playing, and fetching?" Since when do you fetch Tommy?

pssst, big brother . . .

You are not helping our case with your observations about cockapoo skills. I've worked hard on my fetch and while I'm not where I want to be yet, I think I'll get there. It's just that I like being chased so doggone much that I don't feel like bringing it back. Anyhoo, I figure an important person like President Obama can hire a good dog trainer. We cockapoos got everything else a growing family could possibly want. And with the right coaching, I think we can learn to fetch.
