I was trying to find an old photo of one of our family celebrations of the 4th of July, but no luck. So, instead, I thought I would introduce you to my favorite canines. (Because clearly, they have so much to do with our nation’s independence and all.)
This is Tove. I think she’s part Siberian husky, part Samoyed. My husband got her as a puppy, and she’s pretty awesome. Her name means something like “beautiful thunder” in Norse.
This is Rusty, my parents’ dog. Well, really, Rusty is my dog too; we got him when I was about 13 so it’s only since I moved away that now I feel like I can’t refer to him as “my dog” anymore. We love Rusty.
Well, I’m off now…my parents are camping in the area and they probably have Rusty with them, so hopefully I will get some puppy-love today. If I don’t see Rusty, I know I’ll see Tove, so either way, there will be a dog happy to see me! (Isn’t that one of the best feelings?)
