An afternoon with Otis

Ok.

My kids are back in school. I'm working part time, but not today...

I'm on the Board of Directors for a group that needs a head/shoulders picture of all their Directors for a website. (Formal pose not necessary, you see...) So, I spend the large part of my morning on tasks related to the Board's needs, then I decide to have a little fun, & get them their picture at the same time -- maybe.

Otis is a funny animal. Squeezable, playful, funny, very happy; and, well, quirky. See, he licks things -- carpets, hardwoods, sofa cushions, piano bench legs; people's legs, toes, cabinets, cups, toothbrushes, suitcases. He's always licking at things too, if nothing but air. So, why I thought this (Otis, a camera timer, & a BoD picture) was going to work, I'm not really sure...





Eventually we got it, I think. It may not work for the BoD & their site, but it was a lot of fun!

Would that the whole world could have an afternoon with Otis every once in a while...

Awww .. admit it - you're missing the kiddies! :) But Otis does look like a fabulous companion!

Z~ I've missed you! ;) Anyone can see why!

BetteJo~ Missing the kids? not really... ;) There's SO much to get done while they're gone, & now that I'm working some, & have other extracurriculars, there's just not enough time in the day! We did have a GREAT summer, though.

& yes, Otis is a REALLY good dog!

Suzanne: Your Otis is such a cutie! I'm glad you're having fun without the kids...good to do that since they grow so fast and with the blink of an eye they'll be on their own...sigh...mine are in 8th and 12th grade now...hard to believe!
