Raise your hand if you remember Hugo the Abominable Snowman. If the photo to the left doesn’t do it for you, let me provide a couple quotes from this lesser-known Looney Tunes character:
“Which way do we go, George?”
“Just what I always wanted. My own little bunny rabbit! I will name him George, and I will hug him, and pet him, and…”
Dude was ignorantly, perpetually happy.
And, Gracie is a female version of Hugo — with different hair and four legs.
When working in or on the house in Seymour, Libby and Gracie get to ‘ride in the car’ because leaving them home alone for such long hours would be traumatic. Not for them most likely — but for me when faced with the predictable mess that any dog would leave if left alone for 10 or more hours. Big dogs leave really big messes, you guys. After a couple weeks of going “bye bye” they’ve figured out that getting in the car doesn’t necessarily mean a trip to the vet, so both hounds get crazy excited the second I even LOOK at my shoes.
It’s gotten to the point, however, that Libby gets really ticked off every time she goes outside and the car isn’t waiting on her. She puts her head down and angrily steps toward the door. Gracie/Hugo just stays ignorantly, perpetually happy.
“Which way do we go, Libby? Which way do we go?”
