Despite the similarity of their names, The Tobester does not like The Toaster.
Mom, you can’t draw a car for crap!

While Toby’s bestie for trouble-making is Blue Puppy, his partner when it comes to food is Tiger. Tiger is actually a cheetah, but my family named the toy “Tiger”, and this is what I picture in my mind when they say it.
When Toby first started bringing me Tiger, I thought he wanted me to chase him. It took several tries before I realized that Toby was saying “Tiger is hungry too”. (D’oh!) So now after Toby eats he brings me Tiger, and then Tiger has his share.
Tiger waits patiently for his snack while Toby heads offby himself.
Toby had tried to steal a pair of pajama bottoms from the laundry to trade for food, but the more he pulled the more he closed the door on himself. Eventually he gave up and took a nap.

Did you know that there is such a thing as a Kronosaurus? I didn’t. (Although older visitors might remember them from the playground when they were children.) In addition, there also existed a Charonasaurus. To make matters even more confusing, there is the Chronosaurus which is a species of time-traveling dinosaur from a contemporary video game.
I thought I had misheard someone say “Chronosaur” instead of “dinosaur” and my mind leapt to Langolier-style lizards eating time and those who failed to evolve. Turns out the speaker really did say Chronosaur.
I guess the take away from this is that while I am hopelessly out of touch both with ancient sciences and contemporary games, at least my hearing is OK.
That is a matter of debate. I have been telling you that I am hungry for weeks, but you never seem to hear.

While our snow stopped during the night, the wind continued till morning. We ended up with knee-high drifts over most of the yard. Toby still loves boinging out in the snow, but now that he has put on extra weight, he no longer lands on top. I suspect Geordie is having a big laugh at his expense this week!
If you would like to have more laughs at Toby’s expense, pick up a copy of Dream Our World. Inside, Bitey and Toby visit the museum of their dreams and enjoy a day of unsupervised fun!
Toby couldn’t wait to wake me up this morning to tell me that it snowed. He was so impatient to go out that he didn’t even ask for my breakfast. Once he got out, he Boing! Boing! Boinged! all over the place. It was so nice to see him happy and bouncy again!
The cold temperatures and 5″ of powder were all worth it to watch my puppy in the snow.
