Erased: the story of Canelo & Cha-Cha MITN#1

Coming next will be a photo of my dog, Canelo – Actually dog-by-default. They got him next door, at my nephew’s house for his cousin’s birthday, but the puppy was so cute they saved him.

He wasn’t allowed in their house and lived outside in his igloo in the garage for a while- maybe a year? And then he made his move. He barked a lot, especially at 5:30 AM, and eventually so pissed off anyone nearby that he was able to worm his way into my house.
Where he now sleeps on my bed, curled up next to me – unless he decides to take a brief visit outside, then the outside door is open and a lot of cold air comes in.

Here he is on the fouton in front of his portrait by Margaret von Biesen. He’s playing with a ball I got in a fancy seaside hotel when I went to hang out with my old University roommate, Jane. It is a sort of beanbag with a leather skin, and he loves it. He is one lucky dog. I think of him as my step-dog.
