Hello Old Friend

IMG_0700

We were out on a walk when we discovered this gentleman. Or is it gentlewoman? I didn't check.

He was relaxing on the sidewalk in the shade. I wondered what he would say if he could talk? Would you tell us how you came to find your family? Would you relay stories of how long it took to train your new human?

Would you reminisce about your younger years? Did you love to run thru the waves at the beach? Perhaps he would tell off-color jokes about the times he sought revenge by peeing in someones shoes. You would never do that, would you boy. Or, um, sir.
