This is Cosmo, a spunky little wild man of a pup... and Lolli's newest friend. He's a two year old golden doodle-- the constant companion of my brother, Dave and his wife, Wilma-- and a truly delightful dog. This past weekend he was the perfect host to my mom and my cousin, Corrine, Lolli and me after we traveled south to visit them all and attend a baby shower for Wilma (she and Dave are expecting twins in October!).
We have all enjoyed Cosmo's company on several previous occasions, but this was Lolli's first encounter w/ the little guy. She gladly shared her toys and her play mat, too, but when she started tugging on his paws and whiskers, Cosmo had to draw the line. Fur-tugging was off limits; he simply would not tolerate it! That was ok with her, though; eventually he came back and she, of course, loved every second of his attentions. She even stole a few seconds of play time with Uncle Dave. We certainly appreciate their patience and hospitality, especially that of Cosmo-- the arrival of a little screech owl could have severely disturbed his otherwise peaceful home, but he proved that he could hang... and he also showed us all that he will most certainly make a wonderful companion for his newest siblings this fall-- they'll be very privileged to have such a faithful, and very furry, friend.
