Subject: Greetings from Greenville (Ayden) NC.
Dear Barney, Aarroo!! hello from mom &me (Elizabethy) from NC. How are things
going for you at the Whitehouse? Heard that the security guards are being
placed around the plants in the yard for your safety, or to keep you from
being too busy??hehe! Got a look at your recent photos, see you are growing
up quickly too. Mommy made me get a "real" haircut,& my fur is just now
growing back in from having it hand-strip-ped. But now,I officially look like
a scottie. Mom says I don't look like her fuzzy little baby anymore,but it's
still me just more sophisicated looking,hehe!! We got some new pictures in
our album,& a really funny story too. Well,it wasn't too funny at first; but
I'm out of "the doghouse" for now! Hey, I gotta be me!hehe! By the way, we
just wanted to ask you when you check out out latest on our homepage,would
you mind checking out the one page named"Conner's Memorial?" His mom is a
good friend of ours & we are very sad about his "passing away." It's quite a
tragedy,& we would like for you & your mom to be informed of these such
conditions.Just the more people know the less things like this happens. Sorry
about the "off note", but we know how much your mom loves you & the other
fur-kids. We hope that all is well with you & yours,& you're having "tons of
fun" at the Whitehouse. Oh, how is the sleeping arrangements coming along?
Take good care of your mom & dad,as well as Spot. Your scottie pals,
Elizabeth & Mom(Brenda) :) Wanted to share a "doggie pledge" with you. *the
sofa is not a face towel,neither are mom's & dad's lap* aarroo..scotties
Hi Elizabeth & Brenda,
Thanks for the update and the photo. Love the shades!

Dear Mr. Bushy
My name is Westley's Matilda (Mattie) I'm a proper Southern Lady,
My measurements are:
Weight: (a lady never tells..)
DOB: June 15, 2000
I'm currently running for Miss Scottie, USA. My hobbies include swimming,
chasing birds and getting groomed.
I'm interested in all kinds of smells, and running. I would like to
thank my mom for all her patience and treats she has passed out during the day.
I've completed obedience school and am now looking forward to having
my own litter.
I was so excited to see a scottie in the White House I think you're
dreamy. You may come to call (only with the proper paperwork and my
mom's approval, of course) anytime.
Why hellooooo there Miss Mattie!
You sound like a lovely Texas lass. With the Bushes
away in Europe these days, why don't you come right
on over to the White House? We bet Barney would
love the company of the future Miss Scottie, USA!

Hi Barnie! A wee note from the Scots in Florida. And is it hot here!
This is Duncan and Oliver here. We also have included a picture of one
of our baby sisters Maggie. Molly is her twin but she's picture shy. We didn't
like the idea of sharing our cookies but we finally started getting along
and playing with our sisters, but I let em know who's boss. Me! Oliver and
I are members of the Naughty Boy Club (No girls allowed!) with our best
friend Peter. Sometimes he comes over and spends the night and we have a lot
of fun chasing the cats around in the house. He just moved and we miss him so
much! The cats don't seem to mind though.
There's a Scottie pup named Sophie that does the weekend weather with
her mom on a local news station. She wears hats and stuff. We think she's
really cool and cute too! Well, if you might want to join the Naughty
Boy Club let us know. Take Care. Duncan
The picture of Maggie is adorable. The NBC sounds like a cool club.
Two questions: Are special membership cards handed out and are the dues

Subject: A Poem For Barney:W's Best Friend
I wrote this originally as "Ode to Fergie"...my own Scottish
Terrier...the words have been changed in honor of the new White House
"W 's Best Friend"
Soulful brown eyes...
That sparkle and gleam...
Pointed velvet ears..
Bearded and wiry..
With short, little legs..
For a taste of W's dinner..
He sits up and begs..
A dog of the earth..
Low to the ground..
With Barney in the White House..
There's no mice to be found..
Barney loves running afield..
Chasing Democrats is his goal..
He is sometimes aloof...
But, always quite bold..
He is sometimes playful..
And sometimes retiring..
A snooze in the Lincoln Bedroom..
For Barney, is inspiring..
He is fun loving, loyal...
Faithful, and true..
W, you don't own Barney..
Barney owns you!
Whether guarding the Bush ranch..
Or asleep by W's side...
Barney is the best friend..
"W" can have in his life.....
