You've all been so kind and helpful in my quest to find a date for Myrna's wedding in Salzberg. I've had lots of suggestions as to whom I should ask, and even a few "volunteers" -- all of whom are very attractive ladies. And I don't want to disappoint anyone...
But this morning it hit me. Of course!! She's the one.
A few discreet queries of her family to see if it would be OK, to see if she might accept. And, when the answer was Yes! I did a little wirey jig (Jake and I are Brits at heart, you see).
I know my brother Jake is smitten with a girl who lives across the pond -- and so they're in for all the fun and challenges of a long-distance romance. But, as for me, I realized that someone I fancied was just 150 miles or so away -- comparatively kind of in the neighborhood, right?
[OK, as I'm writing this, I hear my Mom humming one of the tunes from Meet Me in St. Louis, which, if I might paraphrase, goes something kind of like this (with apologies to Judy Garland):
"The moment I saw her smile
I knew she was just my style
My only regret is we've never met....
Though I live in Plantation, Florida
And she lives in Key West, just down US One a Da...
So I can't ignore her
The girl (almost) next door.]
But I digress.
For all of you romantics who believe love is just around the corner, perhaps in your own backyard - here is Ms. Essex, of KeyWest Collies fame.
Essex lives with her nephew, Deacon, and her human dad in Key West. We've all shared lots of worried moments wondering about the next hurricane -- and they appreciate it when Jake the Weatherdog swings into action.Like me, Essex is a fun-loving lass. Dressing up as the Red Baron.And enjoying the wearing of the green.
What a smile!!
So, I'm one happy dog today -- and look forward to fun and frolicking in Salzberg.with such an interesting companion.
Essex did ask about what to wear -- so I'm hoping some kind canine lady with fashionista talents will help me out here, although I think her natural coat is just beautiful.
Lots of wirey love
