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.
DUDE: How funny that the poodly, woodley, scoodley doodley likes CHEESE! I’m sorry to say, but I did have a chuckle about the dog being named DUDE, I mean Darby. Maybe you should address him as BEEFCAKES and see how he responds.
Well, Darby of Dogs mom, Courtney, had to login from Boston, MA as soon as I had the opportunity (and once you told me you posted a picture of him.)
I am missing Darby of Dogs, but so glad he is having such a good time with you and David.
Yes, he loves cheese — in fact, once year he all but ate the entire cheese platter we had set out on the coffee table before Thanksgiving dinner.
Tell him we miss him. Thanks again!
