Wilma Wednesday: Wilma sur la Chaise
With apologies to the painters of classic nudes, I give you Wilma, in the provocative yet tasteful pose she has chosen for today’s photograph.
“Wilma, you’re not supposed to be on the furniture.”
“So please get down.”
“But this is where the sunny spot is.”
She has a point. We had rain yesterday and it’s still cloudy, so a spot of sun is a real find for a dog who is also a sun bunny.
Thankfully, not a drop of rain fell on the trick-or-treaters who visited us last night. Wilma watched the sparkling parade from her office, which may look like a cage but is really a private lair for canine protectors who sometimes want to protect a little too much.
“Halloween was fun, right Wilma?”
“Fun for who?”
I would correct her, as in ‘fun for whom,’ but hey—her sentence structure is pretty good, so I’m not going to quibble. And anyway, she’s redirected the conversation.
“Off, sweetie,” I say, even though she looks so pretty lying there.
