Some concerning thoughts…

Work, Work, Work! 

While I’m slaving away for some lawyer at the office, what is Rex doing at home?

Scrapping With Siblings

Oh, my God!  I have NEVER had more than one dog at a time!  I can’t even imagine it.  That, together with spending the day with some crazy lawyer, would certainly be enough to send me to the Crazy Place. How could I be expected to concentrate on work when I’m worrying what those pooches are doing at home?

Playing With His Toys

Even when they had the toys I bought at the pet shop, all my dogs’ favorite “toys” were my furniture!  And my toes.

Eating

My mom’s other dog, Tiggie, the Lab, loved avocados.  NOW I know that she wasn’t supposed to be eating them, but, back then, she lived in the backyard, and in the backyard was a fertile avocado tree, abundant with fruit – which Tiggie loved and ate freely, to her heart’s (and belly’s) content.  And she had the most luscious black coat!

Destroying

When Love was a little thing, I left him at home ALONE! while I went to work.  When I got home, my place was a MESS!  He had chewed through the speaker wire, destroyed a pair of bedroom slippers and chewed the better part of a picture of me with Carmen McRae (my favorite singer of ALL TIME).  I know I loved that dog, because – even after that – he lived to be about 12!

Barking and Howling

Well, one reason my neighbor, Mrs. Knopf, used to give me dirty looks when I came home from work was White Foot, my mom’s dog.  When White Foot spent the night with me, he would scream and cry all day, while I was a work.  He even dug a hole in the carpet in one of the bedrooms!

Too bad I didn’t have a Furbo Dog Camera back then!

Sleeping

This is the best of all the possible choices – and I wouldn’t even mind coming home and taking him for a walk!
