Winston is sponsoring a contest to honor both Stubby and his beloved Earth today, so how could we not participate?
But our entry may not exactly count, for a few reasons.
1. It is nearly 60 degrees in Chicago today, so we aren't turning our thermostat down by 3 degrees. No, our thermostat is in fact OFF today! Since we're on the top floor of a newer condo building, our thermostat is typically only set to 65 degrees in the winter anyway. Thank goodness for good insulation! Does this disqualify us, Winston?
2. There's no way on Stubby's green Earth that I'll be able to get Klaus into a sweater. I don't actually own any clothing that really fits him or Natty anymore, because they just won't tolerate it. Plus, it's a little too warm today. So...does that disqualify us, Winston?
Well, just for good measure, I'll throw in this photo of puppy Klaus in a sweater. He had a major 'tude then, too--but he was too small to resist when I tried to wrestle him into clothing, muaahahaha!
Seriously, though...Stubby was an awesome little dude, who was very wise. And he sure made being green look CUTE.
So Stubby, this post is for you. I hope you look down on all of your sweater-wearing friends today and SMILE. (Was that a ray of sunshine that I just saw?)
Thank you for being such an inspiration, in more ways than one.
