Here is a conversation with my PJ…
If you could have anything for your birthday what would it be?
I would like another dog.
No, I don’t remember ever not having a dog.
You have a schnoodle dog now. What do you like about him?
Well, he’s kind of smart. And he’s fluffy. Or he was. Then you shaved him.
Well, you know. He’s a wuss.
What would you look for in a dog now?
He’d have to be big. Really big. I like big dogs.
What would you call him?
What kind of dog would Fredwardo-Waldo be?
Well, he should be smart. I like smart dogs. Maybe a border collie. One that could herd chickens.
What chickens would Waldo herd?
To go with the dog.
Oh! Of course, those chickens.
And that is why I love my boy.
