Recently my pup Grizz walked in while I was chatting on Facebook to one of my friends from The Labs & Co and he caught a glimpse of their beautiful girl, Willow. He’s asked me to proof read this puppy-love letter to her, and I just thought it was so cute I wanted to share it with you all! (Don’t tell Grizz, he’s really shy!)

Letter 1:

Dear Willow,

You don’t know me – in fact – as I write this I am feeling a little foolish for contacting a total stranger. You see, I have never written a letter to a dog that I don’t know before. It’s just that when my mom recently showed me a photo of you, I knew there was something really special about you… I knew I had to reach out or I would forever regret it.

Willow – do you believe in fate?

The reason I ask is because of the crazy and unusual parallels we share in our two, very different lives in two completely different countries; you from America and I from Canada. Our moms are both pet photographers. We are the same age. And, if I am honest, we are both incredibly stunning canine specimens. I mean, there should be a breed – you know what I mean? Of all the genes, in all the world…

I have to show you this photo of me – I think we even own the same Ruffwear collar and harness – in the same colour! I didn’t think I would ever find another dog that shares my discerning taste in athletic wear. (This is me at work. I am Chief of Perimeter Security here at BrindleBerry Acres – I’ll tell you more about that later!)


How else can you explain all this, if not for fate?

I sincerely hope you feel compelled to write me back. I would love to learn a little bit more about you. Your hopes and dreams, your fears… your favourite dog treats.

P.S. I have enclosed a few photographs of myself that were taken this past summer. With the exception of a few new grey hairs on my muzzle (don’t worry, I am told they make me look distinguished), I look pretty much the same today.

Yours, Grizz
