Dear Casey,

You drive me crazy and you bark too much, sometimes.  I know that you want Gizmo to play with you, but he’s a cat and youre a dog and that’s not normal.  Sometimes he plays with you, but not normally!

I hate it when you bark incessantly and I wish you’d stop.

I do love you, though.  You’re a good dog and I’m glad I have you!

Love, Mommy!
