Dear Al E,
This is your daddy. I am not sure if you have fully understood, but I am going to be away at least until middle to end of May. I am working in Netherlands.
I will unfortunately be missing your 1st birthday and really hoped that I could be there. At the same time, everyone will be missing my 40th birthday.
I have been reading about your antics and giving Dada a big headache. I do hope that you will behave yourself a little more and take it easy on Dada. He is the only person taking care of you for another 2 weeks or so.
Mommy will be back on February 11 and take care of you after that.
However, we are hoping that Dada will come and take care of you again during your birthday so that Mommy can visit me.
I really miss you a lot.
I wish I could bring you here in Netherlands. You will really love it here because dogs are allowed pretty much everywhere, in the hotels, in the shopping areas, in the trains, trams and busses, in some restaurants and shopping areas.
There are many types of dogs here but most are very well behaved. As such, you have to behave yourself as well.
I promise to bring you some nice toys from this country, maybe some clogs and windmills for you to play with.
Until I see you in a few months, please always remember that I love you so much and you will always be in my heart always, next to Mommy and Dada.
Take care and be well.
Yours always with a million hugs and kisses,
