PENELOPE SPEAKS: I LEARNED TO VOTE

 Hello. It is I, Penelope. 

During November, all Mom Mom and Human Brother talked about was voting. Everyone should vote, they said. What is this voting? I demanded.

Mom Mom said, Voting is about making important decisions.

So I voted. I voted for more kibble in my bowl. I voted for Human Brother to share his tortilla chips with me. I voted for sunshine on a rainy day. I voted for Mom Mom to add DogTV to the satellite dish. I voted for Franklin to disappear.

My votes did not get me what I wanted. I will not give up.

It is cold. I must wear my sweater, but honestly! It is so last winter.


Mom Mom purchased some new clothes for me at Target, the fancy store for dogs. I tried them on and they were too small.

Mom Mom said, Penelope, you need to lose a few pounds.

So I vote for the pounds to go away. I am certain that this vote will come to fruition and I will be in my new clothes by Kissmas.

Good luck with that vote, Penelope, Mom Mom said.

I think she was being sarcastic. 

That is all. Goodbye.

  1. Sometimes you get what you vote for and other time you don't. I have voted to be a size 8 . . . no dice!
    Keep voting Penelope!

  2. Keep voting Penelope. I think many of us have wished the pounds to leave us. Some day we WILL win that vote.

  5. Ha! The sad (and frustrating) thing about voting is that we sometimes don't get what we want!

  11. Don't stop voting Penelope!! You're bound to get what you voted for one day. Hopefully, not in the too distant future.

    If dogs ruled would it be a dog-eat-dog world, or will we be like a dog with two tails?
    What says Penelope?
