|2016 New Years Resolution
Resolution for 2016!
While looking forward to the New Year, I
pondered what my New Years resolution and
then it came to me: I vow in 2016 to buy Spotty
the best dog food on the market!
During the holiday, I received a call from a
skincare company that has been unceasingly
bothering me and has refused to accept, "No!”

holiday specials, but if I ordered today they
could rush my order in time for Christmas.

"Ummmm ma'am, we can't hear you."
"WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!"
I turned to Spotty and said, "Oh Spotty, Mommy is so sorry that the mean lady hung up on you.
I guess they are choosy about their clientele, and they have a right to be. After all, it is their
