Pick ANY of the presidential pets and write little snippets that would be on their own page. Would be great if we could get 400 words for a pet, but I know that will be a stretch for some of the pets for which there is scant...

Looking for a great writer to write 12 blog posts, about 600 words each. These posts will be general posts about U.S. presidents' pets, mostly from past presidents. Interesting stories, funny stuff, weird, wacky ... They should be written in a way that will get people sharing the posts - so not too Zzzzzzz, please.
“Very good job copy editing a seriously tricky, large set of documents on a tight deadline. What you just went through is kind of like Copy Editor Survivor. You were not voted off the island! Looking forward to working with you again.”
“Supercopyeditor is a pleasure to work with. Expectations were clear, client was quick to respond to all questions, and payment was prompt upon completion of the job. I''m looking forward to working with this client again.”
“She certainly performed better than 99% of copy editors who have taken this same editing test (I've tested quite a few over the past year because I have rather exacting standards). I'm dead impressed and looking forward to working with this freelancer on other projects. Highly recommended.”
“In the interest of providing honest public feedback (which will benefit everyone), I will say this:
Considering that the project was for an "amazing, top-notch copy editor," I was startled at how poorly this short document was handled, with a large number of flashing-red-light errors left in place.
I wonder if she spent too much time fussing with the style sheet that she added to the second page of the document, showing which style guide and dictionaries (three of them!) she used and which words she spelled differently according to those reference books. All of this for a 250-word document.
This freelancer apologized for the mistakes, saying she got "flustered" because of the one-hour turnaround. I will note that, according to the Microsoft Word timestamps, she spent as little as six minutes on the actual editing.
After I brought my disappointment to her attention, she humbly offered a full refund, which I declined. I want to pay her for her time on this project, but I will not be using her services again.”
“Well now that this is all said and done, here is what really happened. I actually spent about 30 minutes editing this document, my computer timed out for 10 minutes, the document page went blank, and I went into a panic. Luckily, it was saved in some temporary file, because I was able to retrieve what I had done from the recent files worked on in the start menu of Windows 7. Then, when I tried to save it to my desktop, there were compatability issues that altered the format. So---I went to the original email, opened the document you sent again, and started over with less than 15 minutes to finish to mee the deadline. I did not relate this to the prospective client because I felt like it would make me look like I was making excuses, but in hindsight, I should have completed it, turned it in late, and explained what happened as I have just done here, because I spent the full 60 minutes editing this project. The style guides were available to me, and I use them as I need them.”
