Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter
April 9, 2007
Say hi to Moses. He's a two-year old English mastiff who lives in New Hampshire with Phillip's
brother and sister-in-law, Wayne and Roseanne. Moses (appropriately enough) joined our
belated Passover festivities this past weekend at Phillip's mother's house in Connecticut.
The boys stayed home with Courtney, Mike, Buttercup and Tootsie. I find it
stressful to keep them out of trouble at his mother's, and with two other dogs there
in addition to Moses the canine saturation level is already pretty high. But back to Moses. He is a
terribly sweet dog with good manners and a surprising ability to maneuver around
people and furniture without knocking anyone or thing over. What is most amazing
though is that he does not touch any food on tables, counters or floors. Boggles the mind.
Moses has 20 pounds on me. I kept mistaking him for a pony.
"You mean he's not a pony?" says Maia.
Tennis balls can disappear entirely in Moses' mouth. Probably
bowling balls too and maybe next time we'll try that out.
