Iggy tries.

Hi, readers. Iggy’s chewing on a rawhide bone, and that’s going to keep him busy for a while, so I thought that I’d switch things up today and tell you a bit about myself.

I work for a technology company. I don’t mind it — in fact, they recently started letting me work from home a couple of days a week. One of the advantages to that is that come lunch hour, if you’re feeling sleep deprived like I am today, there’s nothing stopping you from laying back on the couch, pulling a light blanket over you, and —

“‘Scuse me? Karen?”
Yes, Iggy?

“I wrote you a poem.”

You did?

“Uh huh. ‘Cause you’re really special and nice and stuff. Wanna hear it?”


“Okay. It’s called I Love You A Lot.”

Iggy, you say that about everybody.

“But this is different! You’re the bestest person in the world!”

Aw, Iggy, you really feel that way?

“Uh huh! Can I sit with you and read you my poem?”

Of course.

“Okay. A haiku. I Love You A Lot, by Iggy. Me.”

I love you a lot
You give me warmth and safety
You give me your couch.


Oh, no you don’t. Nice try, Iggy. Get off the blanket.


Okay, you’re just being creepy now. Get down.

“Heh. Okay.”

  1. Iggy is adorable. Evie Cat likes to steal Josh’s desk chair. I’m pretty sure at this point she’s convinced it belongs to her, as does his blue water glass.

  2. First dog I had was a schnauzer – Demi – the love of my life growing up. In fact it’s one of the comments next to my name in the high school year book “I’ll catch up with you, I have to go home and walk Demi”. Iggy is totally adorable..

  3. Why does Iggy remind me ever so slightly of Anne Elk (Miss)? “This is my haiku which I wrote, and it is mine, and what it is too.”

    1. Ha! I actually wrote “That’s me,” but then I swore I remembered Crow T. Robot from MST3K saying that right before reading something he wrote. I can’t think what it was, though.

      In any case, saying “That’s me” felt like a ripoff of Crow, whereas just “Me” is more homage, if you will.

      That’s my story which is mine and I’m sticking to it.

  4. Working rom home and spending more time with Iggy is priceless… but Iggy, she can do that without you stealing her couch!!
    Hugs, Carrie and Pups x
