I took this photo in South Pasadena from my friend’s second-floor apartment, where she was stretched out on the couch with a broken ankle. I don’t visit that part of town too often, yet I get the impression the neighbors don’t see many front lawns with pit bulls shading themselves under olive trees.
But Tommy made himself right at home.
Back in my neighborhood, I gladly interrupted a long afternoon walk to support local Altadena businesses, El Patron and Bulgarini Gelato.
Later while running errands, I stopped for gas. Tommy took the opportunity to contemplate life in the driver's seat.

Tommy around Town

These photos are so endearing. Tommy, poor Tommy, so good at waiting. As long as it's you he's waiting for, he'll be glad to do it. And if he thinks there's some gelato in the bargain, he'll wait even longer.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Petrea. You know Tommy's motivation all too well. He really liked licking that gelato cup clean.ReplyDelete
His ears just crack me up! Mine would never wait patiently like thatReplyDelete
My dog, Scout, would never be so patient. She has separation issues. She's working on it. In the meantime, well done, Tommy! And good job on the gelato.ReplyDelete
wv: Messlu, as in I messlu when you leave.
Kari and Margaret, keep in mind it only takes a split second to take a photo, and there are many more seconds for Tommy to freak out. But he is a very good boy. The lure of a reward definitely helps - and a LOT of exercise.ReplyDelete
His ears crack me up too!
Messlu - just how a slobbering pooch would say it, too.
Tommy has the greatest dimples and facial dents along with other charming characteristics such as his ears. He should be in pictures; the moving kind. Star quality. I'm sure he would share his fortune with you. Perhaps even enough to buy a house in South PasadenaReplyDelete
I agree that Tommy's patience is outstanding. How could anyone ever think he (or you for that matter) are dangerous? Please tell me that! I just want to hug him!ReplyDelete
PA, doesn't he have that star quality though? My friend used to say he will make us famous one day. Maybe so... although even if that happens I don't think I'll be moving to South Pas.ReplyDelete
Liz, Tommy would welcome your hugs! But to be honest, he went through a phase where he was not such an angel. I will get to those stories at some point. He could still be a devil if I gave him half the chance.
I just love his ears!ReplyDelete
He definitely wins the Cutest Ears I've Ever Seen contest, paws down.ReplyDelete
Isn't Tommy always in the driver's seat? Or at least he thinks so.....
He has the most endearing face, and waiting so patiently for his beloved human to return!
Two Pitties in the City, welcome! I'm glad you and Hiker appreciate his ears as much as I do.ReplyDelete
Lynnie, Tommy and I continue to vie for that top dog/driver's seat position. And sometimes he wins, the little rascal.
They're adorable photos! I have never quite worked out the best place to tie Abby up at Bulgarini's. If I'm quick, she's patient, but if the person/s in front of me want to do a lot of tasting and thinking, it can take a while, and she starts to bark.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Bellis! Bulgarini was empty when I was there, so I was in and out. Tommy would react the same way if I took too long. Maybe they would let you bring Abby in next time.ReplyDelete
I think Tommy was born for the driver's seat, though he looks good with gelato too.ReplyDelete
Banjo, you are so right: Tommy was born to drive - and eat gelato.ReplyDelete
Those eyes, those ears, that mildly furrowed brow... what a honey!ReplyDelete
Shell, so nice to see you here! Tommy is quite the looker, isn't he?ReplyDelete
it is wonderful to be in the life of Tommy Lee. Isn't it so true that our dogs keep us going when no individual could even come close.
He makes you so happy, even when is halo is dim. Cause
BAD DOGS HAVE THE MOST FUN!!!
Love you honey Happy Thanks to you and all of your babies.
