    Dear Gennelle and Mike Webkinz, My favorite webkinz memory was getting my first webkinz a pink poodle whom I named Princess I love her soooo much but then my dog took her nose off that made me really sad so I treat her like my little princess each and every day so she doesn’t feel left out.

    Green is my favorite color (Mint green, to be exact.) so my favorite thing about St. Patrick’s Day is probably all the green I get to see! It’s a good excuse to wear a TON of green clothes!

    hello gennelle and mike! I was wondering how the game of the day is determined? is it random? is it chosen by people or by a computer program? thanks! ☺☻♥♦♣♠•◘○ cinderheart ♥ lionblaze ☺☻♥♦♣♠•◘○
