Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

May 13, 2008


Sunday was Mother's Day and to celebrate this festive occasion we went to Brooklyn which, if you remember, is the home of Phillip's sister, Sara. Gitty (their mother) was there too, naturally, as were Phillip's nieces Gabrielle and Shannah who live in the city. (Be sure to check out their jewelry!) It was a lovely day so we brought the boys. The first order of business was to take a walk around the block, because at least 10,000 other dogs had preceded them in the past two days alone, and there was a lot of work to do. Spenser was a dog on a mission, having set upon himself the goal of inventorying each and every one of them.

Clayton took a more leisurely approach. So leisurely that I had to pull him from one spot to another, once pulling him all the way out of his collar. Not to worry though, he was so glued to the spot that I could have come back in twenty minutes and he would have still been there.


We spent most of the rest of the day in the dining room, eating enough for ourselves and just about every other mother on the block combined. The boys were very well-behaved until about 4pm when Spenser let it be known that he was about to turn back into a country dog and we'd better get him home soon to let it play out. Which we did. A belated Happy Mother's Day to all!

P.S. If you're heading to the BQE from the Verrazano, PLEASE remember to stay to the right or you'll end up on a direct course for JFK airport with no place to turn around. It was the second time we've done this neat trick in nine years and I can tell you with certainty that it was not much more fun than it was the first time.
