Dearest little Flan, what a beautiful face you have and what a darling sweet doggie you are! You and your whole family all love each other very much, don't you... and so you all should. How great that is that they adopted you after your previous family couldn't keep you.
Congratulations, darling Flan, on being chosen today's Dog of the Day! We hope you and the whole family and all your friends are enjoying a fine day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite treats and games.
I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).
