What a terrific way to cheer up a kid in the hospital. I was 17 the first time I was hospitalized — it’s a terribly lonely place to be. So sharing some pictures of my Duncan is the least I can do.
Thanks, Tops, (of Life With The Top Down) for letting me know about it! Duncan pics on the way to Anthony!
Life With The Top Down
This morning as I was trolling on Facebook I noticed that one of my friends posted an adorable photo of her two puppies Cosmo and Emma, but this time it was different. She included a well wishes to someone named Anthony. Hmm … further investigation was necessary.
After a few clicks I found out that her photos were actually part of a wonderful event Photo Doggies for Anthony. Anthony is a 16-year-old boy who is currently undergoing chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
As I was reading his story I found out that Anthony is a firm believer in the power of pet therapy and animal healing. I know my Peanut has wonderful nursing skills, so I can’t argue with that thought.
Therapy dogs are just not available every day for every patient, so some wonderful people in Anthony’s life came up with this incredible idea…

He forced me to do it.
“Mom,” he said, “I’m a shoe-in to win the calendar contest. When have you ever seen a cuter puppy?”
“Well, that’s true,” I responded. “But you rarely stand still for pictures.”
Duncan laid down and started chewing his butt.
“I know! Put the one of me in the basket! The cute one!”
And so I did. I entered Duncan in the Animal Welfare League of Arlington’s annual pin-up competition:

Remember, ELECTIONS MATTER!
I have been remiss. A bad girl. No treats for me.
Yes, it’s true. Today I was reminded that I haven’t posted any pictures of Duncan recently.
You remember Duncan, don’t you?
Here he is right after we brought him home, sitting in his toy basket.
He doesn’t quite fit inside it any more.
Duncan is quite camera shy. We get loads of pictures of his butt, which, in my opinion, is not his best feature. The face doesn’t stay still long enough for photo-ops. Apparently, he will never run for Congress.
But the little guy has had quite a good time. He is love, played with, pampered. He has even had a vacation at the shore. Here he is on a rocky beach in Maine. When the rocks are wet, looking for Duncan is very much like playing Where’s Waldo.
Got any Sushi?
Now, let’s see if I can do this. I took some video inspired by Will of Marking Our Territory, alerted me to a fast and easy way to destroy my iPad. So naturally I tried it!
And I uploaded my very first YouTube video.
Shit, I’m a rotten videographer …. but I’m a great dog mom! How many dogs get $300 dog toys?
Anybody got an extra iPad?
