letters to piri // 01

dear piri, 

 // you know i've always wondered. what does that one blade of grass exactly smell like? it's just.. you spend an awfully long time sniffing just that one and i was just wondering.. you know.. call it human curiosity. 

 // that guy at the tidal basin who said to his friends "you know, i never really liked cocker spaniels," as we passed by him... yeah. talk to the paw. that's right. he has no idea how cool cocker spaniels are. 

 // some time this week you're going to get a bath. but you don't know that yet. 

 // do you ever wonder who your mom is? i've always felt bad that we take cute puppies away from their mother. but you know, i'm glad we met you and you let us become your family. we may not be furry and have a long snout like you, but we like chicken, too, just like you. oh and peanut butter. those are yum. 

 // so there are a few "pups in the park" days at nationals park in may. we thought maybe we could go on the 17th. they're playing the mets you know and we're going to root for them. oh, you think we should switch teams now? no, no. we'll always be rooting for the mets. 
  // i ate an apple behind your back yesterday. sorry about that, piri. it'll never happen again. 

 // i wonder what your favorite season is. mine is summer. but i think you don't like summertime because it's so hot. maybe spring? you like the cool breezes don't you? oh yeah. the rain. that kinda ruins your walks huh. or maybe fall when it's apple season. not winter.. i know it's hard to poop in the snow. well, maybe just maybe, you like summer, too. just like me. 

// i told everyone on instagram that you used our bedsheets instead of your towel to dry yourself off after getting wet during our walk yesterday. everyone said you did well. you're lucky you have so many people who love you. 

 // do your ears hang low? do they wobble to and fro? can you tie it them in a knot? can you tie them in a bow? can you throw them over your shoulder like a continental soldier? do your ears hang low? 

 // you know how you always take naps on yangkyu's pillow during the day and you think he doesn't know? i always send him a google chat when you do. sometimes i take pictures and send it to him.
 // there are so many things i want to show you. i want you to see what a campfire is, the beautiful stars in the sky and the deserts out in the west. we're always talking about camping and going on a road trip. are you up for it? 

 // do you know that those things that look like caramel that i give you after your evening walks are actually something called pill pockets. yeah. i stuff your medicine and supplements in them. i know. the things they come up with to trick dogs! oh you knew they were pill pockets? oh.. well, i guess it's really dogs who trick the humans then huh. clever dog.. 

 // and then hachi waited every day at the train station where he used to greet his owner, even though his owner had long since passed. family members tried to give him a home, but he kept running away to wait by the train station. oh i cried and cried when i saw that movie. that's why the top of your head got drenched. because i was hugging you while watching. 

 // i know you're secretly waiting to run into that sweet man who gave you a treat during our walk. his spaniel wasn't so happy that you ate his treat but you said thank you though right? you know, in your spaniel language? 

 // hey piri. i think we're gonna have to give dr. richards a call to say that your ear infection isn't completely healed. shucks. do you want to call or should i. he may think that i'm a nut so maybe it's better if you do it. 
love, 

the human girl who likes to give you random hugs and kisses and is usually the one opening the pantry door to give you your food and treats. oh and the one who is going to give you that bath some time this week.

  7. This was so sweet Jane! I use to stuff "doggy vitamins" in food so my dogs could get their vitamins. HaHaHa The things that owners do. I love the "talk to the paw"! HaHaHa How rude of that man to say that. The man that gave Piri a treat was really nice. I wish dogs could talk. That would be the best. They would tell us everything.

    1. i used to stuff them in his wet food too but one day he just stopped eating them! but he'll always eat them stuffed in pill pockets. aigh aigh :) there was a japanese movie i once saw and there was a make believe invention where people can make out what dogs are saying by analyzing their barks. it was the funniest thing. :)
