My Mom has been playing with her new camera and getting up in my face. Anyhow, as you will read, my human wasn’t as cooperative as Ruby’s mom, however I did finally get her to sit down with me and here is what happened…..
D: What is your job? L: I work in the education field making sure public schools are helping children learn and be safe.
D: If you could do any job in the world other than the one you have what would that dream job be? L: I would most like to be an artist working in all kinds of mediums.
D: Mediums? What about larges like me? L: No Dor, the word mediums also mean all different kinds of art forms like stained class, paper art, fiber art. All the things I do when we aren’t playing together.
D: What is your favorite activity? L: Cuddling with you and being out on the ocean in good weather.
D: Where is your favorite place? L: Well any place my friends are, but if you ask me a favorite location I would have to say Seagull Beach on Cape Cod in the fall.
D: What is you favorite food? L:Well Dory I like lots of food, but probably my favorite is angel food cake with chocolate frosting, I have had it every year on my birthday.
D: What is your least favorite food? L: I would have to say califlower.
D: Oh yeah I don’t like that either!! L:That’s not true, I saw you eat califlower just the other day, you eat just about everything Dory.
D: OKAY moving on… what is something you can’t live without? L:Coffee is definitely on the list, I think that and time to be creative are my final answer here.
D: What was your dream growing up when you were a little human? L: I had lots of dreams, I wanted to be a mom, I wanted to work with children and one specific dream was to own a jeep and have a golden retriever.
D: Have you lived the dream? L:Yes, I’m a doggie mom several times over so far, I have worked with young children, owned several jeeps and had a golden retriever named Lucy in my life.
D: Why was having a golden retriever so important? L: I think it was kind of a rebellion thing. My parents owned Labs my whole life and every time I asked for a golden they told me “No, we are a Lab family.”
D: Who is your hero or person you most admire? L:Uncle Harvey’s wife Edna. She really encouraged me my whole life and was very proud that I was pursuing my doctorate degree. She was always said girls can do anything they want to and be anything they want to.
D: So you are saying I could live my dream and be a chef in a resturant?? L: No Dory, you need thumbs for that dream, plus I can only imagine the chaos in the kitchen with you there!
D: Party Poop!! L: What did you say???
D: NOTHING!!!D: What do people like about you? L: I think they like the fact that I never take life too serously and I am very patient.
D: What would you like to improve about yourself? L: Aside from my spelling skills, I agree with Ruby’s mom and would like to procrastinate less.
D: What is a fun fact about yourself? L: I can roll the sides of my tongue up, which is genetic and I have a small tattoo of a paisley shape on my upper leg.
D: No microchip in case you get lost? L: No, I’m hoping the tattoo will suffice in finding me if I get lost.
D: What do you trait do you dislike in others? L: Intolerance.
D: What is your secret indulgence? L: I do one very self indulgent thing – I get a pedicure and manicure every two weeks.
D: What is a pedicure and manicure? L:That means someone makes my fingers and toes pretty.
D: Oh so do they cut your toes and make you bleed all over like you did to me?? L: NO. That was an accident!!! Next question??
D: Do I have a secret indulgence? L:Not really you don't have any money to spend on indugences. But I must confess I buy you way too many new collars, a girl can never have too many accessories.
D: Greatest regret? L: I don’t get to travel and go on vacation as muc as I would like.
D: Proudest moment? L: When I opened the notice that I officially could be called “Doctor Young”. I am also pretty proud that I have learned how to captain apower boat on the ocean.
D: Scariest experience? L: Moving to Massachusetts all by myslef, starting a new job and Harvard all at the same time. I was afraid I’d bomb out in school and ha to go home and live with Gramma.
D: Oh I’d love to live with Gramma!! L: No I just meant I was really afraid I wasn’t brave or smart enough to make it in a tough university in a totally new place.
D: Favorite word? L:Finagle
D: Favorite sound? L: Ocean waves
D: Favorite smell? L: Fresh mowed grass
D: Favorite dog? L: Wally.
D: WHAT!?!?! L: Just kidding, I love you because you are the funniest dog I know.
D: Favorite saying? L: “OH MY STARS!” Being an educator I can’t really swear and it gets the point across.
Now Dory I have to say we have a big day of fishing ahead, our vacation starts tomorrow so it's bed time.
D: Really?? No fair. Okay then good night folks, thanks to Mom for being sorta cooperative and hopefully Dad will make himself available real soon. Good night!!
