Editors note: For many years we allowed one of our dogs to write a monthly column. First there was “Isham’s Corner” and then “Gizmo’s Gossip”. Jealousies with the other pets convinced us to give everyone a chance on a rotating basis. Thus,
Hello my friends:
This is Grover — a/k/a the GROVERNATOR !.
I’m told this is the fifth Buck Hollow Pet Photo Contest, though it is the first since I’ve been around. I looked at the past contests and there have sure been a lot of good looking dogs (even a couple cats).
What’s really cool this year is that one of the guests (Thanks, Nancy) sent in an absolutely adorable, wonderful, gorgeous and beautiful photo of ME. That’s right, ME. I think it’s hands down the winner, but of course I don’t vote - you do. Please keep in mind, the contest is not about me. Rather it’s about the photo and the guest who took it. No nepotism here (not that I fully understand what that means). But what point would there be of being a columnist if the columnist couldn’t lobby for himself.
Hopefully a nice female of the canine persuasion will win and Elmo & I can woo her with our charms when she visits with a little ball and frisbee play and some intermittant butt sniffing of course.
Speaking of photos. Years ago Dad had family portraits taken and brought them to his law office to show around. When one of his secretaries commented on how nice they were, Dad answered by saying he thought they were fine for his wife and kids, but he wasn’t so happy with those of himself. Whereupon his secretary said “ Brad, he’s a photographer, not a magician”.
Mom of course has heard all of Dad's stories and can pretty well lip sync them all.
