  • Thanks, Mom,

    You're right about getting ahead of ourselves. Toby and I walked to the post office while you were getting your mail out, but true to form of late, I got lost in thought. When I got home, I discovered that I still had your letter in my pocket. I mailed you the dog. If you find you can't take care of him, just leave the door open. He likes to play in traffic. I've attached a picture of him so you can recognize him among all the other dogs who have fallen victim to the same circumstances.
