People stop me regularly to ask what Nelson’s breed is. Apparently, “Cute” doesn’t cut it. This past weekend I attended an dog agility event with my friend Sheila. There were dogs galore, including this beauty, Pia:


If I were going to have another dog, she would be it. Her owner was so sweet. We stood outside talking about dogs for a few minutes and she firmly decided Nelson must be a wire fox terrier, like Pia. Let me be clear, I couldn’t care less what Nelson’s breed is. He’s a pound pup who I adore. He could have horns and be purple and he’d still be perfect. That said, wandering a Boulder hardware store this weekend, I ran across the following Welsh terrier calendar:

This is Nelson, kinda. In truth, I think he’s likely Welsh/airdale/wire fox terrier mix — a Euro mutt, just like me. Regardless, I miss the little terrorist and can’t wait to be home with him soon.
