Tonight I got the sweetest e-mail from Wendy the volunteer extraordinaire at the Merced SPCA congratulating me on the one month anniversary of adopting one Dottie Braun. I am pleased to report that Dottie is doing wonderfully well in her new home. And thank you to everyone who sent e-mails asking about the little girl. She and Ling, the fourteen-year old Chow/Fox mix that runs the Braun household have become fast friends. The cats seem to think Dottie is simply another one of them since she is just about their size...and all the two legged folks are pretty fond of her too.
One of the consequences of adopting Dottie at this moment in pop culture history is that it has become almost impossible in the wake of the cultural juggernaut that is Here Comes Honey Boo Boo on TLC not to say, "Here comes Dottie Poo Poo..." every time the little dog walks into the room.
So for your viewing pleasure I have uploaded some more photos of Dottie Poo Poo in all of her velvety, chocolaty, elfish, adorable glory. Please note that Dottie Poo Poo is unquestionably better behaved than Honey Boo Boo (a.k.a. Alana Thompson) and to our knowledge has never eaten "sketti" nor has she belched or burped while competing in a beauty pageant. Of course she's still young and I suppose there is still time. But she is house trained...which is possibly more than can be said of Honey Boo Boo.
