Dear pooch

Dear pooch,

We've been together for one year now and you're just over a year older yourself. We've taught you many tricks, including sitting and not sticking your nose in our plates at lunch. You still pull on the leash, but I know you get tired quickly and after that you're a nice girl, walking by me.

You don't respect me much, but I can't really blame you. I do most of the work around here and I also wash your dirty paws for you. I really mind it when you bite when I try to work. I know you have a huge crush on my fiance, but really, we can share, can't we?

If I send you to the balcony to take a little time out, it's for sparing my hands a few bites and maybe teaching you some manners. Don't worry, Scorp is only out to classes, he will be back afterwards. I always let you back in when you get lonely out there, if you behave yourself.

This is what I call Pasha pooch. Always on top of the pillow pile.
Look, you're nicely sleeping now, dreaming your poochie dreams. Such a good girl! Sleep tight!


PS: if you're a really good girl, we will share a pepper later.


  1. Aaaaw, she is just so sweet! I loved this post Lavi and I can tell that you love that little pooch very much indeed.

  2. So cute, Lavi!! It's very obvious how much she means to you :)

  3. I love how she's like a little person...tucked into bed :-)

  4. Congratulations on your book. It takes a brave soul to be published and I commend you.

    Aschiuta is as adorable as ever. :)

  5. Yes, she can be a little darling, but only when she sleeps :D

    Thank you, thank you!

  6. what a great letter, Lavi! the relationship you have with Asch sounds similar to the one i have with Georgia. how indeed, can they respect the ones who wash their paws and wipe their dirty bums while the men take them out for big expeditions and tummy tickle them to death?!!

    someone has to be the bad cop!

    your new poetry book looks interesting. i haven't had a chance to click on it yet. did you do the illustration too?

  7. Thanks Georgia, I kind of knew I wasn't alone in my "bad cop" situation. Actually, I had the same kind of relationship with my mom, so I can't blame pooch.

    Thanks, I wrote about the book on my other blog. The image is sketched and digitally adapted by me. And corrected by Scorp. :D

  8. You have so cute pet animal. i wish i had too..
