It is List it Tuesday over at artsyville. We all know how I love a good list. Well, if it’s my list, it doesn’t even have to be a good one. This week, I made a list of pets we’ve loved over the many years of my life, starting with the very first one I ever saw myself pictured with (Pooch, a mutt). Then going to the first one I remember (Tiny, a chihuahua that loved my mother and snapped at my father). I put stars beside the two we have now. I briefly forgot about Fred (we gave him to my momma when we had to move to a place that wouldn’t let us have a dog and he got loose and was never found) and Doobie who died as a puppy. There is a story there, but not for today. Buck-O was my childhood dog. He was already full-grown and trained when we got him. I was 16 when he died and had literally just met my husband to be. I wish I could remember how old I was when he came to us. Maybe 6 or seven. I know we had him when I was eight.
Fred was the first dog my son had, but Lady is the first he’d remember. She was with us until after he married and left home, I think.
It’s not too late to join in on the fun. If you would like to join in, just make a hand written list, take a photo and leave the link on this post at artsyville. We do it every Tuesday!
