Zoey Writes a News Article

In All About Me, Being Cute, Dog Writing, Shelley Widhalm on September 23, 2012 at 11:30 am

Zoey the Lapdog uses her laptop to write a barking news story.

News flash: Zoey the Cute Dachshund is the cutest dog in the world, according to the scientific measures of cuteness, research on the topic and personal anecdote.

Double news flash: When it comes to Zoey’s cuteness, there needs to be a flashing banner across the top of this webpage, stating “ZOEY IS DARN CUTE!”

Zoey, a clever dog who blogs, wrote a news article:

LOVELAND – Zoey the Cute Dachshund reeled in the praise with her cute looks as she strolled downtown. (THIS IS MY LEAD)

Without too much fanfare, the Loveland dog, 3, willingly accepted the praise from the newest addition to her fan club. (SO FAR, I’VE ANSWERED who, what AND where)

“I can’t resist petting her when she’s wagging her tail like that,” a woman said Monday morning as she left a newly reopened coffee shop.

The woman proceeded to pet Zoey, remarking to Zoey’s lucky pet parent about her high level of cuteness.

“She just loves people,” said Shelley, __, the pet parent. (The “__” is because Shelley won’t let me tell you her age – insert doggie eye roll here.)

The woman left, but more fans stopped, asking if they could pet Cute, Adorable, Darling Zoey.


“I am a dog, and therefore I love to be petted,” Zoey said with her eyes. (Humans don’t get dog speak.) “I am not an aloof, snout-in-the-air cat. See my belly. Pet here!”

Shelley, the lucky one, worked on her laptop (writing boring stuff because it wasn’t about me), while Zoey continued soliciting pets.

Zoey averages about 10 to 12 pets an hour in Loveland but about 20 in Fort Collins.

“It’s because I’m cute and people can’t resist a cute pup!” Zoey said in an exclusive interview.
