Pappy Licked Him, Fair and Square

We had a big group over last night for a dinner party. For people who have watched the Pappy movies, their first time meeting him is always a surprise. First off he doesn't talk. But even more, every other person says he's much taller than they expected.

At the end of the evening one of our guests, who had played devil's advocate at dinner by pointing out the unnatural and neurotic entanglements between pets and owners, sat on the floor with Pappy. Pappy gave him a little lick on the face, and he laughed. Then Pappy licked him some more, and he started to giggle. Then Pappy laid into him full bore, licking nose, mouth, scalp, eyeball, and wrapping up with a big old wet willie. Our guest was in such paroxisms of laughter, that Pappy got a little freaked out. But that didn't keep Pappy from licking him some more.

"Unnatural and neurotic entanglements between pets and owners"? We think it all perfect natural and normal but then, we are some of those pets with humans who help us blog. Perhaps it might be a little ... odd. We are glad Pappy had a good time. We wish we could meet him some day but you live too far away.

One of the wonderful reasons to have pets is for all the ways they make us laugh. Go Pappy!

Hi Nat!

I've been reading your blog all weekend. My husband and I just adopted a mutt named Mike Jones, and we are fellow TP residents. So I have been reading about the dog park and trails for walks with great interest!

Take care-
Lucy

Hey everybody! Sorry to be such a slug about updating the blog. Just having an unnatural lack of inspiration over the last month.

Lucy,
Come on by the Wheaton Regional Dog Park on weekend mornings around 8:30 or 9:00AM, and you're guaranteed a Pappy siting. Except this weekend...

Dachsies,
Don't be thinking Pappy lives too far away... our all-consuming passion right now is looking for a place to retire in Texas. Yeehaw.

Bogie,
Thanks Baby. With Pappy's b'day right around the corner, a little jerky would hit the spot.
