Winnie Visits The Royals

November 13, 2010 · 8 comments

Remember “Queen Bonnie and King Zinc and The Saga Of Baked Eggs and A Small Frog“?

I forgot to mention that they come with a set of built-in puppy pooper-outters: two black labs, names a’ Harry, the Senior, and Pablo, the Patient.

At just over two years old, Pablo isn’t much more than a pup himself, which means he was the perfect host to Winnie last weekend.

He’s not only completely good-natured and playful…

… he lives in an intensely glossy black coat, punctuated by the most incredible almond-shaped amber eyes this side of Rivendell. Honestly, you have to be careful when making eye contact with this animal: too long a gaze, and you feel your bones starting to dissolve.

Fortunately, Pablo mostly stays on the move.

Good thing.

He can chase as well as he leads.

Pablo is willing to share, and he knows some secrets…

… like aerobatics, for instance.

Who knew McNuggets could fly?

Harry, the Senior, spent most of the visit trying to stay one corner ahead of the furry vortex, preferring the company of other more civil and silver companions.

They said Pablo missed Winnie when we left.

Really? We thought he might’ve worn out his welcome..

… but we’re hoping the only thing worn out was Pablo.

Let me know when we can watch/play with Winnie for a bit…need to get a “feeling” for how our house would welcome a furry rambuncious addition…

Thanks, Debra! He’s getting older and easier to manage by the day, so we’ll come before he’s a complete rag doll indoors. (Want to make sure you get your money’s worth!)

A great time was had by all…..especially Pablo. He checked his calender and it’s open anytime Winnie wants to come back. That little McNugget is one special dog.

I just love the expression on Pablo’s face in the second photo.

Looks like Pablo is having a little talk with Winston; “Look kid, you gotta take it easy at times so you won’t get into trouble.” 😀
