Farley’s Friday: A Wheaten in a Dinghy

Farley here,

I’m a dog who is treated well and sometimes I’m a bit of a baby.  The water may look flat, but that’s an illusion. We’re about to head around the corner of an island and into open seas – and I don’t like to get wet.

Farley s Dinghy Ride

Did that last statement surprise you? I’m a dog who lives on a boat, spends hours every day on the beach, and my car is a dinghy. So what am I talking about? Seriously, getting wet annoys me. Kristina knows it. Sometimes she humours me – like in the photo above and holds me tight, but other times, she just says, “Suck it up, buttercup.”

“What does that mean?” I bark.

“You live on the ocean, pup,” she says.

The dinghy bounces and spray hits my face. Then I look my cutest and Kristina gives in, and you can see the results. I get to ride on her lap.

“Suck it up, buttercup,” I bark and make Kristina laugh.

Woof Woof . . .

  1. That is a cute pet name, buttercup. Mine is ” pissy britches” It has nothing to do with me going potty it just started out being a cutsie name. ( No one else knows this so don’t tell anyone) Love M.J.


    1. Ha Ha, Pissy britches is funny. Makes you sound mysterious and sassy. Buttercup comes from Kristina telling her nieces to suck it up buttercup when they where skiing in the cold. Then I got the name somehow and I’m a boy!
