Uncle Lou

The cutest puppy Gadora ever did see was an oatmeal-colored Bassett Hound named Caesar. He wasn’t mine. He finally grew into his ears, those many years ago, and I’ve never forgotten his desperate waddle to follow me.

Meet Uncle Lou. Uncle Lou enjoys MANY things:  flinging drool across the room with a mighty shake of his head; having his belly rubbed; absconding with cotton balls and toilet paper; sleeping on his back with legs splayed wide; cheese of any kind; making his presence known quite vociferously to anyone who dares pass by the backyard; and licking toes (human as well as canine toes) — yes, Uncle Lou has a foot fetish. His absolute favorite thing in the world, however… his raison d’etre, if you will… is following his houndy nose wherever it might take him.

Happy Birthday Bubba!

Uncle Lou’s Mama offers, “This pic was Bubba’s 2nd birthday, which happens to be the 4th of July. Uncle Lou and Uncle Sam share a birthday, isn’t that cute? We had a little party in the bathroom [one of The Uncle’s favorite spots]. Thank you so kindly for not painting the toilet in the background. : )”

Happy Birthday Uncle Lou
Terrific Two Uncle Lou
