Boot & Shoe: 06/21/20
Boot & Shoe by Marla Frazee is the tale of two floppy dogs that are very set in their routine. They eat, sleep, and pee together but they spend their lazy days on opposite ends of the house. And then a squirrel comes to mess everything up.
The post squirrel drama is my favorite part. The dogs, so turned around, try to find each other by going to each other's favorite spot. Of course if they both go looking, neither will find the other!
This scene brings to mind a time when my then boyfriend and I agreed to meet after class at Kerr Hall. What we didn't realize is that there were two identical looking staircases on opposite ends of the building. He waited at one end and I at the other until we were sure we had been stood up. The fight that resulted remains our biggest one in twenty eight years together.
