Q: Dear Meli, My favroite book is Meli at the Pet Shop. Does Meli have a brother or sister? Meli do you behave? -Anthony
A: Hi Anthony! I'm so happy to hear you like my books and I loved your questions! I am an only animal, so that means I do not have any brothers or sisters. And I try to behave, but sometimes I chase rabbits even though I'm not supposed to. Keep reading! Woof! Meli
Q: Dear Meli, My favorite book is Taking Care of Meli. What is your vet's name? How many tricks can you do? -Gabby
A: Hi Gabby! Thank you so much for your questions! My vet's name when I had surgery was Dr. Karen. She took good care of me when I hurt my knee! When I went to dog school I learned sit, come, slow down, jump, stay and paw. Keep reading! Woof! Meli
Q: Dear Meli, My favorite Meli book is Meli at School. Do you like going for walks? Do you like milkbones? -Grayson Isabella
A: Hi Grayson Isabella! Thank you for your letter! I love going for walks! There are so many fun things to sniff! I like dog cookies, but my favorite treat is cantaloupe! Keep reading! Woof! Meli
Q: Dear Meli, My favorite Meli book is Meli at the Pet Shop. What is Meli's favorite toy? Where are Meli's parents and what are their names? -Fredrick
