Present from Emmitt - How Did He Wrap It?

There was a knock at the door this morning and a man in a uniform said he had a delivery for us from Emmitt the Pug! I was thrilled and Coop always likes presents, so Mum went outside. This is where it got a little strange. We heard Mum say a bad word and then she started making this squeaking noise. Then Mum came into the house and pulled both Cooper and me into the kitchen and asked us why we had a buffalo on the front lawn at 4:47am in the morning. We told her it was a present from Emmitt - but we didn't mention going to Texas to visit Howie.

Things went from bad to worse and rather quickly if you ask me. Mum called the animal shelter and in case you are wondering, they don't take buffalos. In the meantime Burt ate most of the front garden including the heritage roses. Cooper was so happy to have a new friend that he said we cannot eat Burt. Coop wants to keep him as a pet.

Mum moved Burt to the
back yard and told him and told him to keep quiet. Then she went inside and called 411 to find out where Emmitt lives so she can get his address to send Burt back. Fortunately the operator hung up on Mum after they told her she was a loon.

Thanks Emmitt, we'll keep Burt fat and happy until we see you!

This was the note attached to Burt:
Hi Dozer and Coop:

Burt... as in Burt Bacharach Buffalo?!?! Oh he has a wonderful name... we kinda agree with Coop, we'd keep him as a pal for a while... let alone, where do you affix postage on something like that to ship him?!

;o)

Emmy, are you sure we can't eat Burt? He smells delishush! I've got him here in the back yard so when I run out the doggy door I can pee on his leg so he will feel right at home. Dozer and Cooper, make room on that big bed, we're leaving Burt outside so I don't gotta share the pillow.
xxxoo
