The good news (extrasuper good news!) is I got another special tweet from Jenny the pug. Woo Hoo! She really liked my poem and the mini-Henrietta rubberchicken I sent (didn't want to scare the puglets so I went with a mini-Henrietta).
Jenny even put pictures on her website: check out my beautiful Jenny with her new toy! Do you think this means she might kinda like me??
Now it's time for the bad news. Don't worry, it's not about Jenny. It's about, well... dolphins. And it might make you leak so I'm sorry.
OK, so last night it was all cold and rainy. Perfect weather for snuggling on the couch and watching a movie, my human said. Our couch is warm and dry. Movies mean popcorn. Sounded good to me.
And it was good. For a little while. I snacked and snuggled and fell into a deep popcorny sleep. And then the screaming started.
EEEEIIIIIIIIK! EEEEK EEK EEEEEIIIIIIKKKKKKK!
ME: MMmwhat is THAT?
MY HUMAN: dolphins.
ME: why are they making that awful sound?
MY HUMAN: because people are stabbing them in the head with a harpoon.
I couldn't really go back to sleep after hearing that, so I watched the rest of The Cove in horror. I missed a whole bunch of details, but The Cove is mostly about dolphins in Japan getting killed for no reason. It's also about a bunch of people trying to stop the dolphin killing.
Both parts of The Cove made me really sad. I felt bad for the dolphins. And I felt bad for this one guy who leaked a lot. He blames himself for the dolphin killings because he made the world fall in love with some dolphin named Flipper.
I never thought much about dolphins before watching The Cove. Now I can't stop thinking about how much they need help. Google says the movie slowed down the killing in parts of Japan, but dolphins are still in big trouble.
The Cove will totally make you leak, but if leaking helps save lives then I guess it's worth it. If you haven't seen The Cove and want to help, you can help by signing a petition online (I was signature #82,623).
