Please Meet Spenser For Hire

Spenser, a rescue dog, is of indeterminate lineage. When I first got him, he was a year old and weighed in at about 6 pounds. Skinny and frightened, he did not look like he had had a very good year at all. He was a bundle of fears and nerves. He just knew folk were out to hurt him. People would make strange ewwww kind of faces when they saw him. WHAT IS HE? I used to tell them that his mother was a fruit bat and his daddy was a werewolf. From the looks on their faces, I think they actually believed me.

Spenser is six years old now, and he is a contented happy dog, who has doubled in size. His best buddy in the world is Archibald McNalley, who is his hero. They make a very handsome couple: black and white, ebony and ivory, salt and pepper. Now a robust 12-pounder, he is very protective of his family. If anyone is going to harm any of us, they're going to have to get past Spenser, Vigilante Dog.

OMG, for someone who ten minutes ago had no clue what a blog is(was?) you've certainly made up for lost time in one whale of a hurry.... and speaking of recalcitrant dogs... oh, we weren't. Well, then back to Spenser -- irresistable. Archy's photo is always a work of art, but Spenser no longer looks even a little bit like a fruit bat. Now what?
And congrats on the blog -- makes me want to redecorate mine and fill it up some. Nice job.

LOL...I love to play...and I loved Spenser for Hire (Spenser with an "s" like the poet). I think when you grow up you should be an actress. I can see you on the stage, a glorious Grande Dame sweeping across the floor and capturing the audiences attention with you commanding presence. Although writing is good. :) :) :)
