I wanted to tell you about my little brother. He’s only been with us since September, and mom says that he came from somewhere called Louisiana. We have a blog friend from Louisiana, Miss (K9) Harper Lee. So my brother, Kessie did something special this morning. He was extremely busy sniffing this pear tree and some stuff under the tree. A fire engine was passing by and the siren was so loud. Kessie, almost as an obligation lifted his head briefly and did a little howl, and then back to his sniffing at the base of the tree. Mom was laughing pretty hard. Kessie is a character.
