Lil Pup wants to know: was anyone else at ATAO a puppy? Here's what we have to say:
Long ago, when ATAO first began, four rascally pups came to the kennel. Their names were Rey, R2, Rogue, and Rebel.
The pups were very mischievous! Rogue liked to get into all kinds of trouble.
R2 had the super power of making everyone who saw him stop and say, "Awwwwwwww"
Rebel was too smart for her own good!
Rey was good at staying out of trouble... Until you least expected it!
"Wow!" says Pup. "Those are some good puppies. Was anyone else at ATAO a puppy?"
Of course, silly munchkin! What about your friend Oli? Do you think he was always so tall? Or what about momma Ophelia? She was young once too!
And what about Sundance and Furiosa and Cassidy and your buddy Max? They were all pups too, once upon a time!
"Okay," says Pup. "But... What about Link and Mungry! They are big dogs, even though you keep saying they are pups."
You are right, lil Pup. Link and Mungry are pretty big now... But they once were very very smol! Look at these little nuggets on the very first day of their life!
"So," says little Pup, "Do you think that means that one day I will be big too?"
Of course, little nugget! All who start small can get tall, even if it's only in their hearts. At ATAO we have a lot of small buddies with a lot of very tall hearts. We all grow one way or another, and you will too.
"Okay!" says lil Pup. "I guess that is what you mean when you say that one word."
