Wally & Fred

13 Mar

Oh. Hi!


I’m Wally. I’m Annie’s dog-nephew (I can call her Annie because we’re “related,” but I wouldn’t try it if I were you). My people; mom, dad and brother Little J, are off traveling with Annie’s mom and stepdad and the rest of the family. They’re hopefully already in Italy, where Annie and Isaac will be joining them by the end of the week.

And yep, you got it. They’ve left me and my fluffy dog-sister Ida May behind at home. It’s a dog’s life.

And you know me.


I’m the very famous Fred. I’ve been left behind as well. But unlike Wally, I’m fine with that. Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling… From house to house! A little tinned tuna here, a scritch behind the ear there, a bowl of milk down the block. If I can’t get there under the power of my own four feet, I’m not interested.

But enough about me, this post is all about you. Ann’s worried you’ll be bored while we’re gone, so Wally and I are here to save the day! We’ll be keeping you company while the people are off gallivanting around the Umbrian countryside.

We’ll share some of our favorite posts and places and pictures with you for the next two weeks. I know you’ll enjoy our insight, but old fuzz face up there’s not so sure. He’s worried you’ll be bored. Ah, dogs… So simple, so vacuous, so incapable of independent thoughts.


I take offense at that Fred! Eh, who am I kidding… It’s time for a nap.

See you in a few days!

    You know we’re all expecting fabulous pictures and stories when you return, right? No pressure, though. I’m just sayin’.

    Thanks for all the good wishes everyone! Terry, you know I’ll do you all proud! I’m going to step away from the keyboard and turn it over to Wally & Fred. You’re in fine paws with them. Wally tells me he’s up first, next week, and then Fred the following week, and finally I’ll be back after Fred. See you all in a bit!!

    Aww, hi fellas! Ann, have a wonderful time. Can’t wait to read all about it when you get back!

    Have a great time and eat well! The great thing about Italy is that, due to all the walking you’ll do, you can eat all whatever you want and still lose weight. Last time I was there (back when dollar was actually worth something) I ate rich pastries, pasta with heavy cream sauces and copious amounts of gelato and yet I came back 4 lbs. lighter.
