This afternoon I helped some children who'd had birthdays in October pick out "birthday books" to donate to the elementary school library, and now I want to buy Little Pink Pup for every single child I know even vaguely. Then I want to force them to sit down one at a time and let me read it aloud to each one separately, weeping loudly every single time, joyful, happy, blubbering tears, because:
1. Piglet runt!
2. Newborn miniature dachshunds!
3. Miniature dachshund mom
3a. named Tink
3b. with uber-sweet face!
5. True story!
6. Lookit the cover! Lookit, lookit, lookit!
