Dearest Winnie, you are adorable indeed! Such a cute Dachshund girl, and what a wonderful personality you have, too! Your dear parents adopted you from the Humane Society (and many thanks to them for choosing adoption), and you have won their hearts. You are even becoming friends with Cooper, the resident family Dachshund! You're the perfect Christmas gift from Dad to Mom, a gift she'll treasure for years. You and they and Cooper all love each other dearly, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Winnie, on being chosen today's Dog of the Day! We hope you and Cooper and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.

CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
