This is Robin Hood, my completely pretend Shiba Inu puppy. He is so named because he looks like a fox, and also because Robin Hood is my favorite thing.
In the life where Robin Hood is my puppy, I live in Concord, Massachusetts and make a very nice living as a writer of young adult fiction. Maybe I live in a house like this:
Okay probably not, as that is Orchard House, historical home of the Alcott family. But maybe I live in a house near it.
Starting around March/April, I daily don a wetsuit and swim the entire length and breadth of Walden Pond, which is a thing people do.
Sometimes Robin Hood comes for walks with me in the woods and I sing Oo-de-lally to myself (in a variety of languages), because here it is, Robin Hood and me walking through the forest. Maybe not laughing back and forth at what the other one has to say, precisely, but certainly having such a good time.
Remember that you, too, can share your imaginary lives with your imaginary puppies here at fauxspectacles this week, unless your imaginary puppy is a cat, in which case I don’t want to hear about it. You can also watch this excellent video, in which this dog pretends that he can talk!!!
