Dearest Gromit, what an ...ADORABLE INDEED little love bug you are! So sweet! I'd love to be able to pet your soft, soft, cloud-like fur! (Since I can't reach all the way to Minnesota, I'm sure your loving and beloved human will give you some pets for me .)
Congratulations, darling Gromit, on being selected today's Dog of the Day! You are so cute with your little blue bow. We hope you and your special friend and all your family and friends are all enjoying a delightful day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
