Anne With An ‘E’ And Deviled Eggs

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  What a great week so far! You can’t beat meeting a pretty rescue girl combined with a tray full of deviled eggs in the south and not be happy.  And let me say that when Girl Person is happy, we are all happy.  Actually, when Girl Person is happy, Sheriff Brickle is happy, which makes us all happy.  Nuff said.  Except there’s more.

Have you ever met someone and right away you know you are meant to be friends forever? Me neither.  Except for pancakes and I knew we were besties.  Usually, when I meet someone, I don’t know we are friends until we greet each other in the usual ways.  But when I met Beasley Anne, a new rescue girl, and now our second cousin, I knew we would always love each other.

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”

I am a lover.  And so I dedicate this song to her.  I forgot she was my cousin for a minute.  What state are we in now? Is that legal?

And get enough of your love, baby. #2travelingdogs #drivingwithdigby #barrywhite

Anyway. Girl Person has been hanging out with family a lot on our visit. Trying to squeeze in all of our time into a few weeks has been hard.  Her family has also made it hard for her to squeeze into her shorts with all the food.  Ever heard of deviled eggs? If you are in the south, you probably have.  Well slap my butt and call me pancake.  They are good.

Our Gandma and our Aunt Person on the family farm decided that a good pawty would include dogs, pizza, deviled eggs, wine, more dogs and watching a movie called Anne of Green Gables, one of Girl Person’s favorites.  Can we visit this Florida place more often?

In all of the fun, we met our second cousin, Beasley Anne.  Beasley made sure to specify, that like Anne of Green Gables, her name is spelled with an ‘e’.  Well la de dah.  My name is spelled with a pancake.

“But if you call me Anne, please call me Anne with an ‘e’.”

Beasley Anne came from a city called Miami in this Florida place that doesn’t like pit bulls very much.  Their loss.  Our gain.  Because we have to say, she is one of the prettiest girls we have ever met.

“It wasn’t luck, it was providence. He knew we needed her.”― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Sheriff Brickle was a bit concerned because she is brindle colored too, and thought that their brindles would clash.  Oh no, it was like magic.  Kinda like butter melting on a pancake.  You gotta just look and look some more.

Girl Person says that it is not often you meet a “kindred spirit”.  I have no earthly idea what that means.  But what I do know is that when you find a friend, a true friend, you have to hold on tight.  No, I did not try to hump her in my usual Deputy way.  I’ll save that for later.  Again, is that legal in this state? But anyway.  We are going to miss Beasley Anne spelled with an ‘e’, because she is special.  She is beautiful.  And we wish we could fit her in our Big Blue Treat Wagon RV for our remaining tour.  But we know we will see her when we visit again…or move back.  Who knows?

There is a lot to be said, but not enough actually, for good food, family, wine, dogs and a good movie.  It is the little things in life that make it so special.  And it is going to be hard to leave next week.  My little pancake butt is going to sit right here with Girl Person now and watch one of her favorite movies, although there are no dogs in it. But she promised snacks. And that’s enough for me.  Because although we have a lot of work to do today, it can wait.  Do you have a favorite movie or food or miss your family today?  Make your heart happy.  Do something you love!
