Dear Signore Lynn & Richard,

Buon giorno! How is the weather in Calgary?
Real cold, isn't it?

Signora Lynn, I am writing to you regarding a complaint we received from our dear friends, Raoul and Jodie. We call them our dear friends because, sometimes, it's better to have friends than family like you.

It has come to our attention that our friends had invited you and your husband to spend a few days as guests at their humble home and at their expense. You had also brought along your cute little mongrel that you consider "family". Against the wishes of our dear friends, you let it in the house so that it could roam around and make itself comfortable. After all, it's family, isn't it?

We were quite shocked and embarrassed to hear what had happened in the bedroom and basement of Raoul and Jodie's home. How could this happen to people so generous and modest as them?

Regardless, they have asked us to quietly intervene because they did not want to see your feelings hurt.

Signora Lynn, you should thank your lucky stars every day that you have family like Raoul and Jodie but instead you tested their patience to see how far you can push them. We sincerely don't think they appreciated the "pee party" your mongrel had at their home. How could they have made it more clear to your thick cranium that it should have stayed outside? Should they have posted "No Dogs Allowed" signs in and outside the house? Have you ever heard of the word, kennel?

A man once said, "the great pleasure of a dog is that you make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, he will make a fool of himself too". It appears to us that you, Richard and that mongrel have made fools of yourselves.

It's obvious that "family" is very important to you; more important than real family therefore, I think it would not be too much trouble to ask that you replace the carpet in Raoul and Jodie's bedroom. Make sure you select a nice Persian carpet that would go perfect with the dresser drawers and bed covers.

It also wouldn't hurt to stop by their favorite pastry shop and pick them up a nice Italian cheesecake. Make sure it's fresh!

Signora Lynn, wipe away the tears because you needed this valuable lesson in life. Give our deepest respects to Raoul and Jodie and we hope we never have to receive another complaint from them. If we hear that you bring that mongrel over to their home again, we'll come and visit your home for a few days and bring along a dozen sheep, a few restless chickens and an old horse. After all, their family!

Don't worry, we'll make sure to tell them to clean up after themselves.
 

Tanti Saluti,

Don Peppino
