Tiny Cairn terrier puppy loks clueless as he chews his toy.

I was organizing some photos when I came across this one of tiny Toby.  From the time he came into this world, Toby has managed to take goofy pictures.  This one is no exception.

At this age, you can see that his left ear hadn’t entirely stood up, and he had traded his green sweater for a stylish hand-me-down harness from his big brother Geordie.  While I like remembering the puppy he was, I really love the dog he has become.

Thank you for bringing so much fun (and torment) into my life, little one.


School is starting, and that is a great excuse to escape into an alternate reality.  Come visit Bitey and Toby as they journey to the Museum of the Imagination in Dream Our World

  1. I love the Tiny Toby photo! Like Max, Toby obviously enjoys a nice carrot stick from time to time. You can see he’s bubbling with personality. I agree with you…the puppy days were fun and cute beyond words but I appreciate my mature Malt more. He’s so totally integrated into our lives after 12+ years.
