Last Minute Fathers Day Gift?

The women went silent and turned their gazes on us. “Who’s Chet?” said the oldest.

Bernie pointed my way.

“What a handsome boy,” she said. The others nodded. Had we turned a corner? Simply based on my looks? I couldn’t think why not.

Bernie rubbed his hands together like we were getting somewhere at last.

    Good day to all.
    Oh yes, Chet is a good looking dog.

    Just read a very sad item. President Biden’s dog Champ passed away last night at 13. The president and his wife wrote a lovely farewell and it is on CNN. Such a sad thing but we know he’ll be greeted crossing the rainbow bridge by others.

    Wow, the bridge has been very busy the last couple of days. So sorry for Amalia with the loss of both Basil and Tupper. I’m sure Gillyflower is feeling very lonely.

    But, so happy to see Zeta playing with young Franklin! The first pic posted seemed like she was thinking “whaaat???” But then playing!

    Boo: Golinka made a special request that we join forces with Tupper and be the three musketeers at their most rascally. Challenge accepted. You don’t want to disappoint your favorite Golinka.

    Little Franklin sound asleep on mom’s shoes in close proximity to our toy box. It’s been a hard day.
