To Whom It May Concern:
Excuse my formalities but it seems appropriate, given the circumstances.
Please tell me why you say I smell. Please tell me why you feed me once, while you get to eat all day. Tell me why you give me something, take it back, then throw it far away while yelling, “Fetch!”
Tell me why you never playfully nibble at my legs or toes while I nibble you every chance I get. Oh and tell me why you post pics that make me look bad, because we both know I look better than what’s up there. And while you’re at it, tell me why you don’t take me everywhere you go. That really isn’t cool.
You know, you tell me your dreams, your fears, your hopes. You tell me so much more than I can ever truly know. But you never tell me, your name.
