Holiday Hammock Special
When the L.A. "rainy season" is finally over and it starts to get hot, the hammock comes out of the garage. To Arthur's way of thinking, this is cause for major celebration. Do dogs generally like hammocks? Arthur shouldn't like it so much, really - it swings and is rather precarious - but for some reason, he isn't skittish about getting in. When my sister and brother-in-law put it together on Saturday, he jumped right up and started rubbing his muzzle in between the ropes. He even made some happy whiny sounds.
Come summer, he'll sit on my stomach while I read and put his nose up in the air, sniffing the breeze as it ruffles his ear fluff. He'll be the happiest dog on earth.
