Wally’s Favorites

19 Mar

Oh, hi, it’s me Wally again.

That tree was bothering you, right? I knew it.

Wally Vs. The Tree

As you can tell, our summer trips to the Adirondacks make me very happy. I love getting to play in the water and ride in the boat and have people play fetch with me all day long. I mean, what dog wouldn’t love that?

But you know what the best part of going to the ‘dacks is? Getting to eat everyone’s food. My mom can’t watch me all the time, so I get to eat lots of stuff I probably shouldn’t. One time, Annie made these really delicious little sausages called chevapchichi or something. She said she learned about them in Croatia. I don’t know where that is, but if all the food there is like that, I sure would like to go someday. Plus, I hear there’s a really cute girl dog there named Mimi.

I also love hiking, and we sure do do a lot of that up north. I like chasing deer, and ducks, and rabbits, and, well, anything! Annie keeps telling me about this amazing place in Brooklyn where she lives called Prospect Park. She says there’s lots of ducks and kids to chase, and they even have an entire beach, just for dogs! Can you imagine? I sure can’t. That’s something I’d need to see to believe.

And just like you humans, I really love pork. One time, Annie made some pork at her mom’s house, and it was great, but I bet it wasn’t as great as this roast pork with biscuits. I was there when she called her mom and told her what she was making. I went and asked my mom if we could drive to her house, but Mom said it was too far away, so all I could do was look at the pictures on the internet.

So, if you have a dog in your house that loves pork, too, you should make this for them and then let me know how it was. I bet your dog would be really happy. And if you have leftovers, I always accept doggie bags!

Mmmm... Pork

So, I hope you enjoyed my post. It took a long time for me to type. I have really big paws, so it was really hard! But don’t worry, Annie will be back soon, along with my mom, dad and little brother. I hope they bring me some cool Italian dog treats. I earned them!

    Thanks Wally, for another insightful post!

    I suspect that it’s Ann behind those photos…especially the blue-sky backdrop for the sculpture. It’s stunning.

    Wally—Can’t believe I’m taking cooking advice from a dog [no offense], but I think I may have to go out and buy a pork shoulder. Wow. If time travel were possible and commercially viable, I would go back twelve hours to have the marinating and roasting out of the way and be sitting down to eat it right now.

    I love Wally! I’ve never met him before – are you his mom? And I’m delighted to take cooking advice from a dog! Pork shoulder is sounding very, very good to me right now. And the weekend is coming up………

    You did very well to get those words down with the size of your paws – amazing accuracy! I always thought that the Adirondacks was a place only Sylvia Plath had visited and maybe that it was fictional! But then you don’t know where Croatia is so…….
