Nigel has a good heart and the best intentions, no matter what you may read here. Sure, I make him out to be the bad guy: but it’s just a smokescreen. In fact, he’s even been known to go off and commit good deeds if I don’t keep a close eye on him When he has the energy, of course. He may have ventured off the sofa three or four times today for a snack or a walk. It will take him the rest of the day to recover. Think I’m exaggerating? Go ahead, ask any Greyhound owner.
Yet he’s on the move. He’s everywhere. Each time I fire up the laptop these days, I’m greeted by a post or message with a picture attached. Someone should film me as I encounter these, because I’m usually left laughing until my face hurts. What’s so funny? It might be easier to show you than to explain. We’ll get to that in a moment. For a better understanding of how it all began start here to see the original. Subsequent (limited, there are only
24 11 5 left) prints have been popping up all over the place, to the dismay of cats the world over. Donations to A Place to Bark (from print sale proceeds) have now exceeded a thousand dollars. Kathleen Coy and FOBS did a great job with the project, and their continued efforts have been far too entertaining to keep to myself. So I won’t.
Let’s see what happens when his best friends (and the best fans on the planet) take him out and about. He may very well find himself…
Of course, antics like these can wear on a hound, so after a long journey, he likes to pop into the vet and have a little work done!
Could there possibly be more? By all means, but that will have to wait for next week, when we’ll follow Nigel to Jamaica, and watch him try to push his luck again on a trip to Vegas. Rumor has it there may even be a celebrity appearance. Any guesses?
