I all but promised you 2 days ago that the alliteration was going to die with that last post. Maybe that might have been a mite misleading. I’m on a roll, or rather, a reckless rampage.
This post isn’t really an update or record or news flash or anything, but it does introduce a furry member of my family and it does include a lot of cute goggie pictures and hopefully it will make you smile, because Peeve is really good at that, and you never know when someone’s in need of a laugh. So, read on, my good peruser-of-le-blog. Read and be entertained.
Peeve made her Instagram debut last week, and she quickly became quite popular. I’m not sure why I’ve never shared pictures of her before, because she’s comedic gold! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen her….special face, but now for the cordial introductions:
Her name is Peeve, because she’s our “pet” and our family is one that gets a roaring laugh out of puns. We always joke that she’s our “biggest pet peeve”, and she certainly seems to think so, though she’s pint-sized.
She’s a docile creature, not overly concerned with the fast pace of society and its regulations. She likes to take it easy. Naptime occurs at least six times a day, more if someone else is willing to engage in the pastime with her.
Yes, Peeve is rather special-looking. She also possesses startling chameleon talents, managing to resemble Yoda, an Ewok, and a monk seal all in one fell swoop. Judge her by her size, do you?
Striking, the resemblance is. Mmmm.
Fun Fact: Boston Terriers were originally bred as “war dogs”!
Since I know you’re all quaking in your boots with trepidation right now, I’ll stop with the Peeve pictures. I’m glad I finally got around to introducing you to her though! 🙂 Now for a quick poll: Which dog (if any) should accompany me to the Run Like a Dog 5k? I initially thought I was going dogless, definitely (drat, here comes the alliteration again), but now I’m decidedly less decisive…
The contenders are: Stitch…(he might be more fun to document; he’s a bit of a camera ham, really)
and Fraggle. Yes, like the Rock.
(Heckyes we have a buttload of dogs.) Both medium/large breed, both in good shape and quite amiable, both would probably find the run fun. Thoughts? Have you ever run with a canine companion before? I haven’t, so it’s probably not the best idea to break into it at a race, but…dogs… I might simply pawn one off on Daddio. That way they would get to enjoy the race without baffling me and what little consistency there is with my running style.
(In case you were wondering, Zixie gets an honorable mention. Her hips are too bad to run that far, though. Alas. Otherwise she’d be my go-to girl.)
Should I go for it? The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to see, the future is.
Haha, anyway–happy final fragments of Sunday. On a semi-related note: how the heck are we over halfway through August already??!! I literally thought it had to be the August 3rd yesterday… #timewarp
I hope you got a laugh out of our funny-faced furry friend.
