Scully's Little Brother, Dovi
Well, as you might have realized, Scully has a big heart. He went through alot in his early life and I was worried about getting another dog...but it happened. Dovi came from the Providence Animal Shelter...in other words, the city dog pound. He had just come in an hour earlier...He was a little white and black fluffball, shivering on the cold cement. It was early November 2000. He fit in the crook of my arm and weighed 6 lbs. He was about 3 months old and still had that adorable, round "puppy tummy" that young puppies and kittens have. He was adorable. Scully loved him immediately and three days later, thanks to Scully's examply, Dovi lifted his leg like a boy doggie instead of squatting like a girl. It made this mother's heart proud, I tell ya! :)
Well, the vet thought Dovi might have been a long-haired chihuahua but a year later, his magnificent papillon ears grew in and that was the first time I learned what a papillon was. Dovi loved to eat leaves....made me wonder what perils and trauma a three month old puppy could go through on the streets of a big city. He also loved to eat crablegs and seaweed from Colt's Park....Whatever the seagulls dropped, he went after. Well...here we are almost 9 years later and I have to tell you, though he's fluffy, Dovi is NOT a foo-foo dog! He LOVES to catch flies and eat them...he loves to run in the mud and he loves to be loved. He tries to be Alpha male but Scully puts him in his place- still. So...for your enjoyment, here's a photo..taken this afternoon of Dovi, chasing a fly. He fish-tailed out of the room and I didn't know what was after him and then I saw it- the FLY!! Dovi got him about an hour and a half later. Atta boy, Little Bit!!
As for Scully, Dovi and Me, well...we'd like to thank our friend, Kori at Super Wash for having a pet-friendly laundromat. She lets us go in occasionally and say Hi or Woof, depending...

Remember to speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves. We owe it to them.
