Greetings Mina,

That's very good of you to share this information on a book by a human. Seems like Adam has been to the four corners of the earth. Which puzzles me because I thought the earth was round. Ah yes, when you think about how few Americans have passports, it kinda' tells me something. America, there's a world of wonder and diversity out there :)

Thank you for this, my human friend. Wow, do you have a lot of followers. One day, I shall be this famous! Arf! Arf!

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!

New Zealand and Scotland are two of my dream places. I've been to my other dream places already: England and Sweden.
