My first dog

Sometime I have to post about my dog again. I need to tell you about Indie’s tennis ball relocation service, for one thing.

But the other day I dug out an old photo album and scanned some pictures of my first dog — the dog we had when I was a kid.

Yes, I was a kid once!

And here’s a favourite photo of Pat, taken just a couple of weeks before he died. I always thought it was as if he stopped to say, “Goodbye”.

It brings me a lot of pleasure, owning a dog. And it brings the dog a lot of pleasure, owning me.

    What a cutie…the dog that is. I’m sure you were a cute kid, but it’s hard to tell from the pic.


    And why am I not at all surprised to see a book in your hand?

    I wondered whether anyone would notice the book. The shirt sure dates me! But the book — that might as well be a photo taken today.

    Actually, the Adidas shoes date you more than the shirt. 🙂
