This is Yogi. Yogi is my nephew. Yes, he’s a dog, but he’s my nephew. He’s a Shih Tzu.

He’s my brother’s dog and he likes to bark a lot.

And he also likes to play with a blue toy. It’s like a blue ball or something. My brother’s fiance calls it something like bluebee or something like that.

He enjoys it when you throw it and he goes running after it.

Sometimes when he visits my dad’s house he attacks a Curly, you know from the Three Stooges, doll. A toy I originally bought for my dad as a joke.

He’s a good guy. Yogi, not my dad or Curly. Although they’re cool too, well, my dad. Not sure about Curly. I never met him.

Sometimes I call Yogi my ruff-phew. He seems to like it by barking.
