Pet of the week: Alfie

Inspired by Addison Independent reporter John Flowers’ story about his dog Roxie in last Thursday’s Arts + Leisure section, here is the story of Alfie.
Santa brought me a red cockapoo puppy this Christmas. At six months old, Alfie has never had a haircut. We have no idea what he looks like under his dreadlocks! I keep asking Paul, “Do you think he’s getting fat?” We’re hoping he’s like Roxie under it all. He has his first haircut appointment scheduled at Comfort Hill on the 27th, so we’ll find out then.
I’m doing consulting work from home, and the look he has in this picture is the one I get when he puts his front paws on my knees, pushes the top of my laptop down, and drops his ball on it. OK, I get the message! 
While we’ve had to stay at home, he has been great entertainment for us. We’ll find out what he really looks like in a couple of weeks, when he has his first haircut. 
Alfie has been wonderful entertainment. He’s a “comfort puppy,” for sure!
