Something about this picture reminds me of the cover of “Abbey Road.”
Here are Bert and Zippy at El Rancho Deluxe, the Faster family country seat. Bert and Zippy are pictured enjoying their second-favorite activity, which is running like hell. Their first-favorite activity is sniffing crotches.
Bert has his hole-digging thing, of course, but that’s more of a sideline. My brilliant hypothesis is that the oftener I take him out to El Rancho Deluxe, the oftener he doesn’t dig another ankle-spraining hole in my back yard.
Normally, where you see Bert poised in mid-gallop, there would be a swift and cheerfully burbling river, up to about his neck. But thanks to global warming or Monsanto or pornography or whatever, there’s a huge drought in Texas, and the river is down to a dribble.
At least what’s left of it is a nice color.
