Hey everyone!

For this post, I would like to introduce you to my little brother Andrew and our dog Reggie. Reggie is a male Shih tzu-Maltese mix that has developed a love for Andrew which brings to mind the old cliche about dogs as man’s best friend.

Isn’t he cute?

Although Reggie isn’t exactly inanimate (nobody would ever make that mistake after watching him run around jumping and barking at nothing), this is my blog and I decided to bend the rules a bit this time, if only to let you all meet my brother and my dog. Andrew’s not exactly a big talker, so getting him to let me interview him was, in itself, a success worthy of posting. After nagging him relentlessly to answer my questions, here’s what he had to say.

As Christopher Morley wrote, “No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.”

Thanks Andrew! I promise I will wait at least six months before filming you again, and next time we won’t talk about Reggie.

Until next time,


P.S. I almost forgot. What post-2009 post about dogs would be complete without a link to Dug, the bumbling mutt from Pixar’s Up?
