hello and welcome

I have a new foster dog. His name is Tyson. He’s a sweet boy. I picked him up a few hours ago from Happy Tails Dog Spa where he was being boarded. He’s been roaming my apartment, sniffing everything. He found a tennis ball on one of my bookshelves. It was shelved in non-fiction, biography, which is an odd place for a tennis ball, since I have no books on tennis or players of tennis, but it was mainly there because there hasn’t been a dog at The Compound yet who plays with toys. Tyson plucked it from the shelf and carried it around for a while, until he found a bone. He traded the ball for the bone and carried that around for a while, until he found the dog bed, which appears to be the perfect place to chew a bone, because that’s where he’s been for the past hour.

      Tyson looks adorable. Is he as mischievous as he looks. I mean, there he is…lying on that little bed…looking like he knows something we don’t.

      How’s he getting along with the others at The Compound?

      • Tyson’s funny. He’s still a big puppy. I turned by back on him for one minute and the next time I looked he was staring at me with a wrist watch in his mouth. So, yeah, he is a bit mischievous. We had a long talk about “my stuff” and “your stuff” after that.

        I’ve only introduced him to Rex, since they’ll be living together. So far, they get along great. I may wait a day or two before I introduce him to Margot and Guinness.

    Hello Tyson! What a handsome dog. I bet he’ll find a good home in no time.

    He’s a good looking guy with an understanding that things can be important and some should even be cherished for awhile. This is all good.

  8. Aw what a feller. I wonder if he was named after the brand of chicken / meat products…

  15. You caught me at a weak moment with Tyson, I want to rush down to Houston to cuddle him close. You can just see that he has a proud heritage of almost every known canine breed. You’re a good man, Timothy and a friend of dogs everywhere.
