Now the problem with a dog lover is that you can't take those cute photos for your blog with kitty sleeping amidst your satin cushions. As you can see, Galahad is most willing to pose amongst the cushions on my sunroom sofa but ...! Those wet brown eyes are telling you that I am a real spoilsport. Fortunately Tristram is not interested in beds, sofas or cushions. He feels a love of luxury is un-knightly. After all he has a reputation to keep up as Sir Tristram the Brave. Beside Gal is also an avid swimmer who likes a good roll among the aspidistras after a dip in the pool. And as Ogden Nash said
The truth I do not stretch or shove
When I state the dog is full of love
I've also proved by actual test
A wet dog is the lovingest.
