Kipper is our miniature schnauzer. He has been with us for quite some time, and he is a crotchety old man. But he has kind eyes, a wise face, and he is the perfect family dog. Since it is usually just me home during the days, he keeps me company. He follows me around and always stays underfoot. In a good way. When I am working at my computer, he sits on the bench right behind me and looks out the window. His favorite thing to do.
Like most other people, he hates to have his picture taken. Really. He ducks his head and turns his face away when I point a camera at him. Even when I use my sweetest voice and whistle. There are just so many other things he would rather be doing. Like looking out the window.
Here’s to finding interest in the world outside. And daytime companions. And man’s best friend. Cheers!
