Happy First Day of Spring!

It may be the first day of spring, but it is dog-gone cold here in Wisconsin...I guess a dog will just has to resort to warmin' her belly to the gas stove...

It is a cold first day of Spring here in Ontario too, Frankie. We love your gas stove, nothing like that in our house. We snuggle together in the sunbeams to stay warm here

Do you have a new Spring bonnet? Mama is talking about one for Heidi. Glad we are boys and don't have to suffer such indignities

Love, your friends Valentin, Pogo, and our cart girl Heidi (who is hogging the sunbeams right now)

Wow Frankie I'm enjoying 80 degrees here in Las Vegas!I like to lay on the porch and soak up the sun! I'm a real hot dog!Mom said she is reading your book to her class and they can't wait for the next chapter! They really enjoyed water coloring your poster and said to tell you hello...sending woofs and licks your way!

~Valentin, Pogo, and Heidi,
Oh dear, I do not have a spring bonnet... but I'm kind of a sporty dog and don't like fu-fu stuff much. Mom is lucky I let her dress me in pink, but that is about as girly girl as I will get. Spring is here today and it is almost 60 degrees! Arf-a-roo!

You are going to be a roasted weenie, Winnie if you stay in the sun too long. Hee Hee. So glad your Mom's kids are liking my book. That makes my mom and I so happy!
