The other day my friend Jack was all, "Hey Juj, I know you haven't seen me since I was a newborn and now I'm bigger than you, but do you want to come over and meet my new puppy?" and I was all, "Of course I do!"
I wasn't too sure about Blue-puppy at first since he kind of wanted to jump on me and snoot me and lick me and taste my shoes. But then I discovered something we have in common - a love of books!
I picked a book about puppies - it seemed like appropriate subject matter - and I read to Blue. He was pretty into the story. My dramatic flair probably helped. I'm an excellent story-telling-peep.
I had a pretty fun time reading to Blue but Sissy-Dog doesn't have to worry. I think I still prefer dogs that don't try to munch my toys and jump on me and lick me. Sissy's desire to mind her own business makes her just right for me.
