ODIS, the wrinkly prince
Once upon a time in a land far away and also NEARBY
was a dog full of wrinkles.
He wished for two things.
One: to find a best friend to live with.
Two: to look like a stuffed animal so his best friend
would hug him tightly and let him sleep
on their desk, bed, sofa or any furniture possible
(even an old uncomfortable piece)
when they were away or too busy to hold him
He would call himself
The Wrinkly Prince. Hmmm. Silly pup.
So he asked some ladies to help him look
all over the forest for such a friend.
This did not seem like the best choice of places
to find what he wanted, but he asked.
So they did.
ODIS was very excited to travel with the Ladies!
They helped him into the Prince-mobile.
He Bid farewell to his Man-in-waiting, Sir Tony.
One of his new friends, Cassie, Kissed him “Hello”.
We had a wonderful ride. Odis was very happy
to look out his window.
(Notice the drip on the end of the tongue)
Odis was very curious about the forest, and found himself searching
high and low for things he did not even expect to find.
Like a family!
Unfortunately, the family already had their own
“prince”, and could not have another.
He seemed disappointed.
Eventually he became rather exhausted.
Cassie and Donna encouraged him to keep looking.
They both saw what a wonderful boy he was.
He was soft, beautiful and WRINKLY!
A perfectly lovely set of bumps and grooves.
Surely SOMEONE would notice and take him home.
Besides his beauty, and more importantly,
ODIS is well-behaved, affectionate,
likes other dogs, seems to love all humans, and He is a great hiker!!
We LOVED spending the afternoon with him!
But we began to wonder again, maybe this is not
the correct place to find your best friend.
It was time to ask Odis if we could go back to the city.
We reassured him he would find a special human some day.
Of course, this made him quite excited
and caused a bit of wiggling and jiggling
After that, our hopes were up in the sky!!
So back we went to our vehicle.
Odis, we were happy to have you with us
and someday, you will become someone’s
