Can we go to Disney?

I want to go to Disney! When you guys went last year you came back with cool toys and talked about good food. I like toys. I LOVE food. I want to go!

Places like that have a lot of extra food. It’s like the park but bigger, right? People always drop food at the park, so I bet they drop food at Disney!

I heard that while you were there Ethan got a turkey leg. Where’s mine? I like turkey! I like everything! I can eat and protect you all at the same time!

I know the cats say I get distracted but I don’t! Food is my focus! Well, food and stray cats. And stray dogs. And anything that makes the curtains move. I have to bark at stuff. Those are the rules. I think.

I heard that there are rides that spin around and around. Do you feel like you’re chasing your own tail when you go on the teacup ride? Can you chase the cups? Do you drop your food while you spin? Who threw up? Your mom said it was gross, but I bet it looked funny!

What about the roller coaster? Do your ears start to flap and then fly out behind you?

If I were to jump out of the roller coaster car and catch one of the dinosaurs, would I get a prize for saving everyone? Do you have to stay in the tube at the river rapids ride? Can you swim your way down?

Disney sounds like a playground for dogs!

I’ve heard that there are a couple of yellow dogs that live there all the time, but that may not be true. Your mom said that one of the dogs wears clothes and drives a car. Apparently he’s a goofy kind of guy. Does that mean that he’s clumsy, or is he just silly? Did you mom make that up?

Start saving up your money so you can buy turkey legs for me. That way we’ll both be happy. Have a cat-free day!
