On my eleventh fun monday i can write this post with my eyes closed and one hand tied behind my back
that's because Lisa's Chaos wants us to introduce our animals.
hahahhaha! this fun monday was made for me! here goes.
Meet Toby. the most beautiful, loyal, faithful dog there ever was. he was eight weeks old when i got him one January long ago. he adored me. i adored him.
he chased tennis balls with an energy and a diligence that i admired; you can learn a lot from that kind of single-mindedness.
he slept on my bed. he went in the car with me. we were inseparable.
he now lives in a small white box on the top shelf of the dog closet in the kitchen.
maybe "lives" is the wrong verb here.
this is boscoe. a loving dog. sweet and faithful. he's mostly border collie, but he's not intense; the Lab in him mellowed him right out.
on walks, he goes into his border collie crouch when he sees someone he wants to have pet him; you can't budge him. he insists on being loved, by strangers and friends and neighbors and family and us.
he is a dog who loves the world.
and now they are the best of friends.
riley won't go anywhere without boscoe, and when boscoe goes somewhere without him, riley is beside himself. boscoe is 12 1/2 now, and riley is 6.
happier and better-loved dogs you will not find.
