Merry Christmas!

Sending merry and bright wishes from my home to yours for the happiest of holidays!

. . . with much love from Miss Harper Lee . . .


VOTE!

vote-1-thek9harperlee

No worries, friends. I wouldn’t dare stick my paw into the mess that is our nation’s current election. The humans created that ordeal, and I’ll leave it to them.

vote-2-thek9harperlee

I’m asking for your support in a far kinder, much gentler, and decidedly more fun election. My human daddy’s company is having its Impact Advisors 2016 Pet Supermodel Contest. This is the sixth year for the contest, but the first year that Tallulah Bee and I are participating. (By the way, the Pet Supermodel Contest is conducted by the company’s “chief happiness officer” and he calls the employees “winners.” How fun is that?) The competition is pretty stiff, so we really could use your help. Unlike most elections, this one allows you to vote more than once. (Yes, I’ve heard tales of certain voting irregularities in the regular human elections, but we’re not going to get into that.) You can cast one vote per pet every 24 hours and the voting runs through September 30.

This is my photo submission for the Pet Supermodel Contest. You can click here for a link to the ballot box to cast your vote for me.

And here’s my sister’s submission. You can click here for a link to the ballot box to cast your vote for her.

Remember, you can vote one time for each of us every 24 hours now through September 30. (Don’t worry. I promise to remind you at least once before the voting ends . . . just like those annoying human campaign commercials on the television. 😉 ) Tallulah Bee and I really, really, really, really, really appreciate your support . . . and we’ll keep all of our campaign promises.

P.S. Feel free to share this with friends and family!


Celebrating Summer’s End . . . for Some

summers-end-1-thek9harperlee

Many of our friends across America celebrated the end of summer a couple of weekends ago. Here in South Louisiana, we’ll still be looking for ways to beat the heat and humidity for at least another month. That means my little sister will have a few more opportunities to perfect her watermelon-eating skills.

When we first introduced Tallulah to a watermelon, she was a bit confused.

It was as if she thought the little spot where the stem used to be was some sort of wondrous watermelon key that would magically unlock this mysterious green thing. Goodness knows she tried and tried that approach, but to no avail.

It was time for the seasoned watermelon eater to step in and show her silly little sister a thing or two about this summer delicacy.

“First of all,” I told Tallulah, “you don’t just bite into the watermelon. You let the humans cut it into nice little slices for us. The humans love preparing our food and serving it to us. We mustn’t deny them this great pleasure.”

Obviously, one of us has a better grasp on patience and manners than the other. It becomes more and more clear every single day that I have many, many lessons to teach Tallulah. But back to the watermelon-eating tutorial.

I tried to show Tallulah the proper watermelon-eating style: dainty little lady-like bites.

Tallulah had something completely different in mind: putting the entire slice into her mouth all at once. And by entire slice I really mean entire slice. Tallulah devoured that watermelon slice . . . rind and all.

summers-end-9-thek9harperlee

I’m becoming more and more convinced that my little sister is part pig. Check out that nose–and that full mouth–and tell me what you think.

summers-end-10-thek9harperlee

Tallulah has a lot to learn about eating watermelons, but under my watchful eye I think there’s a chance she’ll catch on. I guess it’s a good thing we have a little bit of time before summer’s end.
