we know a dog named tony and i've assigned him this long island mobster kind of voice. when i walk my dog aorund the lake near my house, we often see tony. tony lives in a house right near the walking trail so we also see him in his enclosed porch. when he sees us he grabs one of this stuffed toys and violently shakes it and then i do his voice and say "you come to my house? i do THIS to you".
today, craig and i got up at the ass crack of dawn to take the dog to the lake and tony and his owner were there. we did the customary letting-the-dogs-touch-nose thingie and then walked on. craig said that this is what tony said to mattie: "i could really use a dog like you".
it made me laugh for decades because mattie is totally the type of dog to dump a body in the lake and not think anything of it. she'd be a perfect mob dog.
