Gimme A Little Kiss, Will Ya, huh?

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,
I know that you almost never run letters from humans, but I thought I’d give it a try. You know my Cocker Spaniel, Brodie? He’s very friendly and loving but he never kisses (licks) anyone, including me. The best I can hope for is a wet nose. What can I do? Anything?

He who barks last… barks loudest

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,

I just heard a story about the barkingest dog breeds, the top 5 anyway, and Jack Russells aren’t on the list. What a crock. Anyone of us could outbark a Schnauzer at the drop of a bone. What gives?

Jock, the Jack Russell
P.S. The so-called story is here.

Daisy Mae's 2013 Costume

Halloween Happiness

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,

Thank you for publishing my previous question about fireworks! I hope you’re well! So, now that Halloween is coming up, I see some people plan to dress up their dogs & cats in costumes. Are you getting a costume? Should I like it because it’s cute?

Daisy Mae’s Secret(s)

Dear Daisy Mae,

I’m writing to spill your greatest secret and to tell your vast readership how you came to be with your Mom and Dad. It was because of me!

You probably don’t know that your Mom and Dad actually babysat me one night when I was just a puppy and my folks had to go out for some obscure reason. (You may have noticed that we live in the same building.)

Naturally, your Mom fell in love with me right off the bat!

The next thing anybody knew, your Mom was calling my Mom and asking if she could come up stairs to visit … me! One thing led to another and your Mom was calling our breeder, Mary Ann Macgregor of Hearthside in Missouri – wherever that is – and looking at you online.

A few days later, my Mom and your Mom and Dad and some other guy went to the airport in Miami to pick you up. I was soooo impressed that you made the trip all by your lonesome. You were 8 weeks old and far too cute. You still are, just not as cute as I am.

Are you ready for the big secret? Your original name isn’t Daisy Mae at all. It’s Donna! At least it was for your first 8 weeks.

The other secret is that Jack the manager of our building, snuggles you every time he sees you, but he snuggles me, too.

Congratulations on your website, Facebook page and Twitter feed. I’m a big fan, or at least I would be if I knew how to get online.

Love, Honey

P.S. Want another secret? We’re half-sisters.

Paris&Chyna

Cinderella’s Stepsister

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,

I’m about 10 years old I guess. Actually I have no idea how old I am but I do know that for a long time I was the only dog around here and Mom and Pop paid a lot of attention to me. Then they adopted a Yorkie named Chyna (I’m a Maltese, white and elegant if I do say so) and this new critter is acting like the Princess of the apartment and Mom and Pop are buying it! I wish I could just say “Hello, long time loyal dog here. Needs attention” but they would just think I’m barking. What should I do?
Thanks, Paris the (elegant) Maltese

Dear Daisy Mae,
Baths are okay in the sense of tolerable, but the blow drier! I hate that thing. Any ideas?

DaBull in the China Shop

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,

I love to go for rides in the car with Mom but I’m not allowed in any of her favorite stores or restaurants. What gives? Thank you.

Priscilla’s Pesky Brother

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,
Thank you so much for what you do. It’s all so very interesting and helpful. My name is Priscella. I’m a 4- year-old English bulldog, kinda petite and pretty if I say so myself. My Mom recently rescued a puppy and now I have a new brother. He’s really nice and we have lots of fun, but sometimes he bites my face, playfully of course, and you can’t really blame him because I do have lots of extra skin on my face, but at times it irritates me. How do I get him to stop?
Thanks,
Priscella

Amelie

Barkez-vous Français ?

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,

I am Amélie, a Bouvier de Flandres. I’ve read your blog and I think it’s fantastic!  I don’t bark arf-ten. I am very shy, but I have finally worked up the courage to write something to you. I do not bark in English. I bark only in French, so I have translated this. I’d like to eat healthier. I’m trying to outrace Billy the Briard because he gets my dander up. Do you recommend any brands of healthy dog food?

Regards and thanks,

Amélie, Age 9 in human years, 49 in dog years.
