five card draw

There are some things in life that I am certain Baxter should never try were he actually able to do them. Like climbing Mt Everest because he hates the cold, or working at a rawhide factory because he'd eat way more than he would ever get paid.

And then there's playing poker, a card game of skill that also requires a mastery of the art of bluffing. Whether he's hiding his rawhide or himself in plain view, I'm just not sure our little pup has what it takes to fake his way through anything.

Such was the case when I came home with our nifty new old peanut pup from the flea market and thought I'd take advantage of the light for a photo op before our evening walkies. We're done now, he quickly proclaimed, only a few shots into our session. Here ya go, here's that peanut thingy. Now let's go walkies.

Yep, what you see is what you get with our little boy, and that suits me just fine.

I find if I ask about history or get a story, the price goes up. So, no history, other than it was purchased at the flea market for three bucks! :)

We've got one of those peanut pups too, but the painting or engraving on yours is much nicer. Hilarious stuff. Nice pics!
