An ode to MY babies

I have the greatest doggies in the whole world... Allow me to introduce them!



Wally is a portly, but completely loveable guy. He is 100% heart, wears his emotions on his paw. A prime example of his personality: He usually sleeps in the basement with my bro Tony (taking up 90% of the bed). However, a few months ago Walt took a flying leap onto the bed and it couldn't handle his bulk and broke. Freaked out, Mr Tor (yes, my dogs each have about 978 nicknames) ran back up the stairs and slept at the top of the landing after that. When I was living there (he is in Virginia) I managed to talk him down off the landing and back onto Tony's bed, which lasted about 3 nights until he took another flying leap and broke the bed again! The guy is freaked out (naturally) and hasn't been back down the stairs yet. So he crams himself onto a little tiny landing all night. Isn't that the saddest, yet most precious, thing you've ever heard?! Here are some pics of my boy in all his glory.




Miss Lola, on the other hand, is slightly evil but will melt your heart and get her way with one big smile and kissy! She has beautiful wavy hair that she hates to have brushed (and we cannot figure out what kind of dogs they are - mutts, basically). Sissy is an evil genius - as a 4 month old puppy, she figured out how to escape from the dog run (which had a section of chain-link that was bent) by getting her brother Wally to stand on the bent section so that she could climb out and leave him in the dust! She is also a great jumper, and a baby gate has yet to be found that will keep her down. She is a bit of a lone-wolf, loves to sleep by herself in secret corners. And her greatest passion in life (well, other than food and the dog park) is squeeky toys! She goes at a squeeker with a zest and enthusiasm that we humans rarely get to enjoy. :) I love this girl, she is too presh.

I haven't seen a pic of those two in a long time. Think of the fun they would have with Rudy if they didn't live in dumb, stupid Virginia!
