At first I wanted to kill myself. Really? I thought. Has everyone in this country lost their minds? But then I realized: OMG, my Christmas shopping is done.
Because I am buying this book for everyone on my list. Some of them will even appreciate it.

My friend Dianne, who doesn't even really like dogs all that much, was quick to endorse it:
"Where did you say I could buy it?," she says. "I'm really tired of all those books with too many words."
There are words, I tell her, It's celebrities writing letters to their dogs. Seriously.
"Do the dogs write back?" she says. "Because that should really be a movie."
She is always one step ahead of the culture like that.
