August 24, 2015: Today, daddy and I had another meeting of the ‘Let’s Convince Mommy We Should Get a Puppy Club.’ We’re still working on the name. Daddy is really smart and I’ve been implementing his plan for weeks, but we aren’t sure if we’re making inroads. Mommy is a tough nut to crack. Daddy thought if my first successful crawl was to my puppy book, that might do it. Nope. Maybe if my favorite new stuffed animal was Rufus, the puppy from Ikea (also inspired by Aunt Ellen I guess). Nope. Maybe if I laughed and tried to hug all the dogs on our walks. Nope. Mommy says puppies are up all night. Perfect. I need someone to hang out with at 3am! There must be a way.
