Scarlet Lily Puts Her Case

A-Z Challenge ‘S’

Hopefully you will remember Lily Scarlet  http://bobscotney.blogspot.com/2011/04/lily-scarlett.html
She  sent me this email to put the record ‘straight.’




Gramps,

I hear there's been some bad press about me lately. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Ok, ok, I guess I was caught in the act of the dishwasher thingy, but there is currently no evidence to suggest that I bunged up the dang toilet. Daddy is still threatening to smash open the toilet, so until then, I'm in the clear.

I do try to be a good girl. I got smacked on the nose for stealing Gem's bone the other day. I think stealing her bone was well-deserved though because (1) Gem thinks she can carry it around until we have all eaten ours and then torment us with it and (2) I can fit two bones in my mouth, so I look particularly cute. Oh, but FYI-smacking me on the nose does work though.

I am actually learning not to eat Gem's food when I am done. Actually, I don't do it at all when Mummy and Daddy stay for dinner, but if they go inside, then Gem has it coming really. She should learn to eat faster.

I absolutely must wear the bell any time the garage door is open. It's called the Scarlet Letter--hence my middle name (and after some equally obnoxious lady in some film). Anyway, I need the bell because apparently "come" is not in my vocabulary yet. I never run away. I just take my puppy-old time coming back, that's all.

I think you are going to fall in love with me when you get here. I'm not bad, I promise. Daddy says I'm just "spirited" and Mummy says that I'll grow out of my puppyness, but I am lovable--you'll see.

Lots of love
Your Project, Lily Scarlet

A dog with a sweet face like that could get away with a lot in my house too.
