Lily is the world's best dog


I was back in Cleveland over the Fourth of July weekend, and I took the opportunity to take some photos of my home town to better share the full Cleveland experience with you, the reader(s) of this humble weblog.

This originally served as a test posting, to see if I could get the photo thing down. But now that I've got that taken care of, I rather like keeping up the homage to Lily. Also, photographing black dogs is really hard, and I'm happy with how this came out.

Lily enjoys chomping on tennis balls, having her ears scratched and the occasional sliver of salami. At one point, she had mastered a trick wherein you could ask her to choose between being an Ohio State fan or dropping dead, and she'd take doggie seppuku every time, falling to the ground and rolling over to emphasize her point. Sometimes, she'd bark at the very idea.

Good girl!

In her youth, Lily also enjoyed chewing on the backs of sandals...while people were wearing them.

LOL... That's right. Though now her partner in crime, grace, chomps the back of her legs while they chase after tennis balls much to the amusement of me and Flop.

Karma I suppose, Crunk.
