Last Thursday when I came home
I found this in the back garden . . .
My first thought was how did he get in --
our back garden is fenced
My second thought is that Dolly was in heat!
Which was why he got in.
But she wasn't
I posted his picture on Facebook
And not only got no response
but didn't even get a comment
We, of course, left him in the back garden
And next thing we knew, he figured out the doggie door.
And made himself quite at home!
Unlike Dolly he can and does get on the furniture
The top of the sofa is good for people watching and keeping an eye on the world outside
An afghan makes a good place for an afternoon nap
As does a pile of needlepoint pillows!
He's bonded with us -- but mostly with Husband Jim
He "cries" when Jim leaves in the morning
And mopes until he returns.
He and Dolly get along well
Although they do fight to see who gets the most attention.
And Jim and I try to treat them equally.
He's been at Linderhof five days,
we bought him a collar Saturday
But didn't name him.
Naming indicates keeping
and Husband Jim was adamant
Today we named him . . .
I've been enthralled with a new cookbook,
The Canal House, Vols. 1, 2 and 3
And for tonight's steak and salad dinner,
the Salad came from the "Winter/Spring" volume
Mock Caesar Salad
Made with anchovies, it was really really good
And went perfectly,
With the steak
served with basil parmesan mayonnaise
Both dogs enjoy dinner hour
And hover mostly around Jim's end of the table
for he's a softer touch than I.
They enjoyed a bite or two of steak.
They prefer it without the mayonnaise!
