Micronaxx The adventures of Finn & Henry

27Jul/101

“What up, Dawg?” asks Billy Goat

Finny has recently become obsessed with Raggs, a big blue dog with his own song and dance show on PBS. He insists on being called a dog, not a boy, and he won't answer to Finny--only Raggs*! Thank goodness we already have a pair of blue doggy-themed PJ's, which have become the ensemble of choice for our young canine amigo.

In other animal news, Raggs has decided that his little brother is a billy goat. We're not exactly sure why he decided to classify his brother as a goat, but it was prescient, given Henry's proclivity to try and climb anything and everything he can get tiny feet (hooves?) on.

If anyone had told me a few years back that I'd now be coming home to a big blue dog and a billy goat, I never would have believed them. But, you know, they make cute pets!

[* She's not kidding! The other day at Aqui, I was trying to order us dinner with Finn on my arm. It went something like this:

-- Me (to lady): Hi--do you guys have any kid-sized lemonades?
-- Finn (er, Raggs): I'm a dog!
-- Me: Okay, do you guys have dog-sized lemonades?
-- Lady: Sure.
-- Me: Great--and we'd like a kids' taco bowl with--
-- Raggs: I'm a dog!!

And so on. 🙂 --Dad-O]

  1. That is hilarious! I wish I could have been there to hear you asking for a dog-sized lemonade. The things we do for our kids!
