I forgot it was Saint Patrick's Day until Facebook status updates reminded me. A year ago I would be gearing up for a drinking weekend and probably wearing something green and eating corned beef. This year, I'm wearing a purple shirt, I had frozen pizza for dinner, and the most interesting thing that happened today was this.
Barnacle looks like Dino from The Flinstones. I gave him this dinosaur bone - which came from a T-Rex I unearthed with Jeff Goldblum in the backyard - about two weeks ago. His puppy teeth aren't quite up to the task of devouring it, however, which is evident by the fact that he's still working on it.
He still heroically attempts to rip it apart whenever he can. But, rather than tearing through it like a ferocious monster, his tiny baby teeth just grind at it while he makes a sort of gagging sound.
It still keeps him busy for awhile, and for that reason - I am grateful.
