A few weekends ago I took my “grand-pug” on a trip out of town to see my friend Liz, who lives “up north” in Marshfield, Wisconsin.
I killed the proverbial two birds with one stone, since I not only got to hung out a friend I hadn’t seen in WAY too long, I got to spend some time playing with my daughter’s still-new puppy before the two of them move several states away when she goes to grad school.
Liz–who I know from way back in the day when we were both young journalists on the staff of The Milwaukee Journal– has a great shade garden. Golden Boy has both a face and a corkscrew tail too cute for words. And as long as I wasn’t at home in my own living room, Bandit, the co-dependent chocolate labrador, couldn’t try to push him out of my lap.
Kids and dogs…they’re so cute when they’re small. But only the dogs have wagging tails!
