I know that we have people who really, really love Finnegan and Fergus so we try and include them in our shenanigans as often as possible. Once a day I grab a five gallon bucket to sit on and and I take a few moments to feed them crackers.
Fergus is just Fergus. He eats his crackers then goes over and licks the fence. Never fails. But he doesn’t actually lick the fence, he wraps his upper lip around the fence and curls his tongue. But his tongue never really touches the fence. It’s the craziest thing ever, but he’s Fergus and that’s why we love him.
Finnegan has more of a personality that ranges from devilish to lovable. Most days he puts his head over my shoulder and gives me a great big hug. But no matter what I take in the pen, he tries to steal it and he runs away with it like he really got something.
Lately I’ve been putting the animal crackers between my lips and Finnegan gently takes them from me that way.
I can hear it now.
Oh my God! I can’t believe you do that!
Are you not afraid of germs blah, blah, blah?
So as to not offend anybody I’ll make my offensive statement upfront, before I get the lecture. First of all, millions of people the world over would do the same as I do. They love their pets.
But when you really think about it human beings can be quite primal. I’m always amazed at what germiphobes find offensive. What happens behind closed doors in 99.9% homes is probably far riskier, and a lot more fun, than me and Finn sharing a cracker. You know, those spontaneous moments like the say in the “little blue pill” commercials.
So before you go off on me, do a bit of reminiscing. Just say’n.
I hoped you enjoyed the movie.
