The real Spark has kindly agreed to help out with my newsletter and here was his first effort from a few weeks ago (with a bit of assistance from me):
Hello! I’m really excited about recent developments. As many readers know, I talk with my tail wags and I’ve let it be know for a long time that I want a pet cat. My old cat was named Becky and she was with the family when I arrived but she died several years ago.
Well, just a few weeks ago a little stray kitten showed up near the house and I convinced everyone to keep him. He’s really small just now and I’m not allowed to play with him yet since I might hurt him without meaning to – I’m so big compared to him. But I’m really friendly and have introduced myself.
The kitten’s name is Minou and he’s very playful – I can hardly contain my excitement. I wish he’d grow faster. And what’s more is that I love babies and small children. The family has to pull me away from them because I get so excited around them – I’m just friendly that way (I’d take a job as a greeter somewhere if I could since I’m such a people-dog).
Anyway, that’s all I wanted to say today. I’ll be back next month with more about what I’ve been doing. Maybe I’ll get a treat for this. I love treats!
Spark will be back next month after the next newsletter edition. Hopefully, he won’t be so fixated on the kitten and he’ll share a few more tidbits.
