I hear tell today is national dog day. I don’t have a doggie but I grew up with dogs and cats. Actually, our house felt kind of like a farm as a kid because we also had turtles and fish and hermit crabs and guinea pigs and rabbits and a lot of animals. I don’t have a dog right now, but maybe someday. Our house isn’t really big enough for any more animals, and I’m not well enough to care for a dog (doggies need walking).
Anyway though, see those lions? The one on the right is Ron. Master got me Ron a couple of years ago when I saw him in a grocery store. I knew I needed him. You can kind of see in the picture, but Ron has Pikachu ears on. I made him Pikachu ears and a Pikachu tail that he wears a lot. The guy on the right is “Puppy.” I saw puppy in another grocery store maybe a year ago. Puppy is Ron’s son. I know Puppy is bigger than Ron, but sometimes genes skip a generation. I named Puppy “Puppy” because when I asked Master if I could get him, Master told me I already had a lion at home.
I said “Oh, this isn’t a lion, he’s a puppy!”
Master looked at me incredulously.
“Kitty, do you really need another lion?”
Master grinned at me, and he said I could keep “Puppy.” Puppy has been a part of our plushie pile ever since.
Happy national dog day.
