My friend Rob was here today. He met Blue and Blondie for the first time. He took one look at Blue and exclaimed, “Lovey”. And in an instant I realized how right he was. Blue looks a lot like Lovey, my faithful companion for seventeen years in Barrow. In fact, Rob was the one who named her when she was just a puppy. I wonder now if that’s what attracted me to her when I saw her picture on the Friends of Pets website. Did I instinctively react to the resemblance? And then, of course, I got her home and found out she is a complete food whore….just like Lovey. Blondie is a slut puppy and Blue is a food whore. And somewhere in heaven, Lovey is looking down and laughing…and that should probably scare me on a lot of levels because she was always good at the vengeance game. I expect Blue will start putting out farts that will clear the house out any day now.
