Ladies and gentlemen, meet Alfie, a friendly and adorable eight month old Alaskan malamute. No, Alfie is not my dog. She is my "granddaughter". You see, my daughter who got married in June (see this post) has told me that she is not going to have any kids and that I will have to settle for a canine "granddaughter". She has always wanted a dog (or two), and now that she has her own home, nothing is going to stop her. And nothing is going to convince her that it's still a good thing to raise human kids nowadays. Given the mess that the world is in and the direction it's headed, I can't honestly blame her.
Ever since my daughter got Alfie, she has been urging me to take some photos of her (Alfie) and post them on my blog. She has assured me that this will cause a huge jump in the number of my followers. Well, I guess I will know soon if she is right. 🙂 Anyway, I recently invited myself for dinner at her place, so I took the opportunity to take a few photos of my "granddaughter" while my daughter was busy cooking curry fish balls. (That may warrant a separate post.)
So, without further ado, I give you... Alfie!
Although we haven't known each other for long, Alfie and I do get along very well. In fact, every time I visit, she would get super excited at the door. She would lick me all over until I'm covered with her saliva and would dash between my legs and circle me. She would also jump up and put her paws on me. I really enjoy her warm welcome, although not so much her saliva on me. I may wear a raincoat next time to avoid getting wet. 😁
Sorry, these are the only photos that are good enough to post. Let me know if you would like to see more of Alfie, and I will post some more when I have them.
