Talk To The Animals!
How do a pig, a duck, a monkey and an owl say "Happy Birthday?"
Dr. Dolittle would have known. And his creator, Hugh Lofting, born on this date in 1886, would have been able to put the words into the animals' mouths. Lofting was a soldier in World War I and, tired of the horrors and tedium of war, wrote letters to his children filled with tales of a kindly English veterinarian who could communicate verbally with his animal patients. The stories evolved into a series of books, the second of which, The Voyages of Dr. Dolittle, won a Newberry Medal.
The above, including picture, were taken from http://www.answers.com/ . If Mr. Lofting were alive today we would give him big, sloppy kisses for writing such wonderful, lifelike books!! If you've never read the original Dr. Dolittle books, we suggest you go to your local library and check them out. They are a terrific read!
I am a female, Airedale Terrier and my name is Baby Rocket Dog. I answer to Baby, Babe and even Rocket. I was born on Feb.1st,2007 and my birth Mother's name was Lucy and father was Poof. The bi-peds who are now my parents adopted me from a man from Flagstaff, Arizona when I was 8 weeks old. My little "brother" is Hootie, a Welsh Terrier, and Mom got him on June 30th,2008 from State Line, Washington. His birthday is May 6th,2008.He adores me, as a younger sibling should. I make sure he knows what the pecking order is in our household and only have to put him in line about once a day. I do most of the talking for Hootie.
