My beautiful potcake puppy heads off to meet the family vet today.
You know, a quick “How do you do? I’m Papaya Sunshine. I chase bugs.”
Yes, my newest muse loves a good bug hunt. Searching high and low for any creepy-crawly or winged-buzzy-thing to leap at with giant puppy paws.
Watching her, I imagine, would be like taking a peek at my writerly mind on the hunt for a fresh story lead.
Of course, her hunt is all Dr. Seuss, while mine is more cold-war Tom Clancy.
Perhaps “The Grinch Who Stole the Red October” will be borne of us?
Oh, what an odd and wonderful pair we will make.
