You've Got Mail

Both Fellow Traveler and I spend a good part of our day -- often too much time -- at our laptops. This ia often frustrating to Gertie, who just can't understand what's so darn interesting about this machine.

About a month ago she started pushing onto our laps, putting her chin on the keyboard, looking at the screen. So we started saying, "Gertie, would you like us to read your your e-mail?" and either reading whatever is on the screen or just making stuff up.

Gertie loves this. It's now a daily ritual.

Anything you want to say to Gertie?

Who's a good dog? Gertie's a good dog! What a good dog!

I was tempted to write her a Nigerian money scam involving dog food, though :-)

Hi, Gertie. This is just to say that I hope you are well and happy. Keep checking out that email.

Dear Gertie,

It is nice to meet you! We hope you are well.

We are planning to spend the afternoon out in the back yard, continuing in our quest to create a landscape similar to the surface of the moon for our mommies to enjoy.

What are you doing today?

Linus and Lucy

Do you want to go for a WALK?? You want a WALK??? (To get your mamas off the computer! ;))

Hi Gertie! My mommy is back at her computer, but that's a good thing because she was Somewhere Else for a long time. She said she was visiting some other dogs. I don't know why she would want to do that. Be happy that your mamas are there with you. Your friend in Maine,

Hi Gertie! I know the feeling! Start licking the darn thing and they'll take you OUT!
