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]
