Old Faithful

I couldn’t hope for a more loyal or sweet friend with four paws.

One who wags his tail more often than his tongue

And who is always happy to see me.

“You may have a dog that won’t sit up, roll over or even cook breakfast, not because she’s too stupid to learn how but because she’s too smart to bother.”
Rick Horowitz, Chicago Tribune

  4. What a delightful portrait of Oscar, Fi. He is so beautiful.
    Lindy certainly isn’t the cooking type, either, but she doesn’t hesitate to wake us up when she wants her breakfast.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I’m quite sure the all local wildlife realize Lindy is no threat.
