Frodo, Office Manager


November 25, 2007
Some of you have asked to see a photograph of Frodo. Well, there he is.

The reason I'm laughing is, when you click on the button to take a photograph in Photo Booth, you're given a 3-second countdown. Around second 2 Frodo started licking his, well, anyway...

But as you can see, he's in his usual posture when he's in my office, that is to say, lying on the futon. Occasionally when the winter weather kicks in, he'll come into the office and lay down so his face is nearly pressed against my space heater.

For years we've been calling him my Office Manager, which is reasonably accurate. He doesn't much care what I do, just so long as he gets regular walks and playtime. Oh, and is fed regularly, preferably table scraps because he's a miserable beggar. Well, I guess he wouldn't be if we didn't indulge him.

One of these days I'll get a really good photo of him, but this will have to do. And, in case you were wondering, we call him a chocolate Labrador, but he's a lot prettier than most chocolate Labs. He's more of a caramel color. His Mom was a yellow Lab (I don't remember if she was a mix, but maybe) and Dad was probably some sort of Newfoundland mix. We got him for free, which is a good way to get dogs, I think. Anyway, he's got a sister my wife has seen photos of and she's even more Newfie than Frodo is, with some black and curly hair to go along with everything else.

Cheers,
Mark Terry

Our cat Sabrina is on my lap looking at Frodo. Well, I don't think cats really see what's on screens. My computer doesn't have a camera. You're lucky!

Awww, it's Frodo! He's an adorable big woof! Did I tell you we have a Hobbit? Except we call him Ittle-Bittle (even though he's huge now) and Ittle-Bittle-Buggy-Boo for short. Or long, whatever.

Ittle Bittle is a miserable beggar, too. It's DH's fault. :-) Or maybe it's because they lived up to their names. Don't hobbits love food, always want to eat? I faintly remember six meals a day or something like that ...

Yay Frodo! How cute he is. We have a golden who loves everybody, a shelti who rules the house and a pit/greyhound mix-she's fast and she's mean but she's afraid of the water dish and the space heater and just about everything else. Okay, so maybe she's not so mean...
Love Frodo! Thanks Mark.
Now spy has to tell us what the heck a Hobbit is...

A hobbit? You know, Lord of the Rings? Here's info, and guess what? They enjoy seven meals a day, not including snacks. Now that's my Hobbit! :-)
