This is Orion! Don’t you love that name? I do. Not pictured are the chunkiest of chunky thighs — totally hilarious.
He is Miss Meredith’s latest nanny charge, and she brought him over today so we could catch up for a bit before their next stop. I’ve been asking loads of friends to stop by with kids lately just to get Magda used to the smells and sounds of small children. Orion is 5 months and he was perfect around the pups. Not at all bothered by Merlin’s raspy barks of excitement, and just a tad curious about Magda’s wiggling. Which lasted about 2 minutes until she disappeared (as usual).
After Mere left, I roamed the house to find her. Oh, here she is.
Hiding under the dresser, despite her dog bed RIGHT THERE. (Also, do not judge me for all that dog hair. Please.) It took about 15 minutes after Orion had left the house for her to tiptoe out and get back to her normal self. Poor thing.
For your internet share today, did you guys hear the State Fair Craft Beer exhibit was robbed of $10,000 last week? Wow.
