Hi everypuppy and everycat, it's me ... umm ... wait a minute ...
Are you alone?
Are you sure?
You don't have a brush or a comb behind your back, do you?
OK ... it's me -
Ammy! I'm not really hiding or avoiding my mom or anything or ...
Are you sure that isn't a comb behind you? I can trust you not to tell anyone where I am ...
... can't I? Especially ... hmmmm ... perhaps my mom who's talking that crazy talk about me needing combed and brushed.
Keep it secret, OK? Thanks, friends!
