The parents of Darby of Dogs waited a LONG time to tell me their dogs name was, uh, Darby. In fact, I learned it in the paper, as Darby’s mom is a recently retired columnist for our venerable Bluffton Today newspaper. And, I suppose if they ever thought they would ask me to watch their sweet bundle of dogness, they would need to come clean.
David and I are enjoying every minute of our dogsitting duties. I couldn’t ask for a better canine namesake.
Some things about Darby, the Dog:
- Darby, the dog, is male
- He REALLY likes cheese
- And walks
- And chasing squirrels
- And pretending to be able to kick the ass of any passerby, but when met with said person, he uncontrollably wags his tail in sheer delight
- He is funny
- And cute
- He likes people, too. Reminding me that his human counterpart plays that same game, sometimes. The “barking and then wagging of behind” when meeting people because, well, we actually like them.
