i'm back!

Originally uploaded by cerasmus.
i'm ready to blog again. i have been distracted of late by my new little sister. meet ethel. she comes from maryland where she was in a shelter. now she lives in my house. she has long legs, pointy ears, and a skinny belly. in other words, you will not confuse the two of us. it was hard to get a picture of her because she is always moving. and fast.
next week we start obedience classes, though i'm not sure why. it seems to me that my mawma tends to do what i tell her--feeds me snacks, rubs my belly, etc. sometimes she leaves us home alone when we'd rather be at the park, though. i hope they have a way of correcting that problem.
more about the adventures of wally & ethel soon!

goodnight morgan

i've had lots of inquiries into my well-being because i've been awol for so long. i appreciate your concern. i've been a bit sad of late because i lost my best friend, morgan two months ago. she was 11, almost 12--this lovely picture of us is on her 11th birthday last year. i miss her a lot.

here are the things i miss the most:

1. our games of intrigue in which you steal my chewsnack while i steal yours.
2. you cleaning my ears. me cleaning your bowl.
3. you letting me pull your tail while you try to fetch.
4. roadtrips sharing the backseat.
5. herding you around the house.
6. protecting you from the noisy dogs at the park.
7. watching you fetch and swim.
8. you protecting me from myself at the park.
9. your nice big smile, even when i pulled your tail or stole your snack.
10. eating cinnabons on your birthday.

bye, morgan. we miss you!
