Doggie Delight

When it starts cookin’ here in the Pacific Northwest at 77 degrees, I get a soft spot for our dog.

The one in a life-long hairy coat.

The one who walks and sheds. Shakes and sheds. Pants and sheds.

The one who flops in a pile of rocks by the side of the house and hopes for more 59 degree days. Like yesterday.

This guy.

At which time I wink in his direction and trot off to fill a plastic container with water and a few pieces of last night’s barbecued chicken thighs.

And then freeze the thing over night.

By the time the sun starts to tease us, it’s ready.

And for twenty minutes I soar to number One in his small book.  Or actually that chunk of ice does.  And that whiff of chicken.

And that’s okay.
