In reading other dog blogs, I realize that Pappy's blog is missing much of the gooey warmth and dog-as-child references of other sites. This is due to local regulations in the DC metro area requiring clear delineation between pet and owner in all public statements. I can assure you that, behind closed doors, we have all of the shmoopy talk of other doggy households.
With this in mind, you may re-sentimentalize Pappy's blog for your personal use with the following procedure:
- Copy the full text of Pappy's blog into a text editor.
- Search all instances of "Pappy" and replace with "Sweetie Boy".
- Search all instances of "dog" and replace with "fur-son".
