The Non-Velveteen Pig

My favorite dog toy doesn’t rock his world.

This perplexes me.

After all, it squeaks.

Wake up, Eddie. It squeaks!

Wake up, Eddie. It squeaks!

It comes in a rainbow of colors.

It's like a bag of Skittles

It’s like a bag of Skittles

It’s a pig with erratic snout stitching and a missing tail.

Why hasn’t it been ripped to shreds by now? I’m afraid it will remain unreal until it is loved.

But I have faith that eventually Eddie will come around to its greatness.

Polo Squirrel Expedition

Dog week continues.

I continue to love up Eddie, and I hit the bonus round later today meeting my friend Steph’s new pumpkin, Polo.

It’s really all about dogs, isn’t it? Life, I mean.

It’s a tiny bit about chasing squirrels, too. And being okay with not catching them. That’s a metaphor I’ll let you interpret any way you choose.

Winding Down

Doggie daycare and eight hours of socializing for him.

Writing projects, errands, and an uncomfortable four-mile run in humid 90+ degree temps for me.

The proper way to end our crazy day was to walk through a park. And try to get a decent picture of Eddie.

The best photo of 30+ taken of Eddie, my charge for the next several days. Hoping for better results (and less attitude) tomorrow.

Make a Wish

I met Wish tonight in a Minneapolis parking lot. Part wolfhound, part who knows what, he’s 11 weeks old and precious and has paws bigger than dinner plates. I have a sinister desire to steal him.
