A Short Blogging/Puppy Hiatus–Introducing Doc


DOC (aka The Doctor Underwood)

If you’re wondering where the blog posts have gone…. well, the puppy ate them! Yes, Underwords has a new puppy and his name is Doc. Yes. Doc as in The Doctor (aka The Doctor Underwood), but we call him Doc for short.

He’s a miniature dachshund whose parents are on the smaller side. He’s about 11 weeks old right now, and I think he’s finally grown beyond the “teacup” size into a solid “coffee mug”. He’s a really beautiful chocolate brown with splashes of golden color on his paws and nose. Clearly, it looks like he jumped into a honey pit.

So, I thought you might enjoy meeting the new puppy so that you all know where my blogging time has gone. I promise more blogging about all things SF, fantasy and horror will be starting again soon….

In the meantime, here are a few photos of Doc for your viewing enjoyment:


This was the first photo of Doc when he was maybe a few days old. Tom said he looked a bit like a tinsy tiny werewolf, which convinced me that Doc would be right at home with the Underwoods.

This is Doc today. He is standing upon the living room ottoman, surveying his new kingdom and wondering where he put that little dinosaur toy that he loves.

Here’s Doc in a moment of quiet reflection as he ponders the great questions of the day … i.e. When will breakfast be served? …. Where did that dinosaur toy go? …. How did I get on the ottoman? …. I think I see the CAT!

Here we have Doc petitioning Lucky, the current reigning Queen of Hawkes Street, as he requests a few minutes of time with her blue snowman toy.

I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting Doc. I’m sure you’ll see pictures of him cropping up here and there in the future.

    We’ve always had Cocker Spaniels, but I have to say that is one cute little pup. He looks like he has an inquisitive side, so I predict an interesting puppyhood for you. Congratulations on the new addition!

  3. We want an update!
