I thought I'd give you faces of those most mentioned in my stories, or at least my family, for now...
I'll start with the newest arrival-
Sgt. Pete Podengo Voortman Stickroth,
"Petey" for short. He is relentlessly demanding, like a drill sergeant. His breed (though he is mixed) is Portugese Podengo Terrier ( or terror, as I sometimes think.) He was given to me by Allen Voortman, owner of Pride and Joy Dairy (yummy milk!), and of course, the family name of my household.
It is noteworthy that he is looking so handsome in this photo. The leash is the key, for it means Petey is still, at least for this moment. Not only is he still, he is clean. And finally, he is paying attention. These are unnatural conditions for Petey. I am glad that I was able to capture this historical circumstance in a photo and that I can share it with you.
I'm considering a blog, strictly for Petey, for every day is an adventure with him. Plus, it might explain the harried look on my face that you see when encountering me around town.
His big sister, Mosie, will be introduced in the next post..
A 50-something woman comes home to a place she's never been before.
