A Story about Spotty by Spotty
One day my owners put me on a plane and took me to a huge
white house with many rooms to explore. As I searched
the house looking for tennis balls and bones, I was
surprised at how familiar the place smelled. It was
as if I had been there before.
I nudged my owner, President Bush, on the ankle and he
said to me, "Well, Spotty, how does it feel to be living
again in the same house where you were born?"
Then it all made dog sense. This big house is the White House,
the place where I was born on March 17, 1989. My mother,
Millie, took care of me and my brothers and sisters before
President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush took me to their
house in Texas.
Today, my owner lives in this house, and he has a new
name. My favorite name for him is "Dubya," but everyone calls
him "Mr. President." I just call him my best pal.
