By Daisy and Lily (who own author Mary Jane Maffini)
Hello, please excuse the chattering of our small sharp teeth. We are Daisy and Lily, princess dachshunds and we are here to express our intense displeasure with the weather.
We have made our views known to Mum and to date she has done not a thing (nothing!) to turn up the heat outside or to melt the snow. We have given her the ‘poor us’ expression, the heartbroken expression plus we have lifted our dainty paws to show that we want something badly. She knows we have bald bellies and no legs and we suffer under these conditions and yet … nada.
We hate it outside and yet out we have to go several times a day to attend to certain matters.
You seem like pleasant people. Perhaps you will add your voice to ours in a loud howl so she’ll get the point. You know what they say: United we bark, divided we … whatever the rest is. But we won’t be divided. Please join us so that we can once again look beautiful in a lovely warm green backyard. (Although aren't we adorable in our snowsuits?)
It’s the right thing to do.
Love and kisses,
Daisy and Lily
