This is Jeff speaking. LOL
Poochie was/is a huge bond between my wife and me. I met Sue at a pen pal club on a devotional site. You were to put your interests and hobbies in your profile for people to search. I don't think people were meant to meet each other through it, but that's what happened. It is interesting that one of Sue's brothers started all that. He gave her the URL for the website and said it looked interesting (in general, nothing specific). And Sue babysat his kids while they were on vacation and he sent her to a writing seminar as a reward for watching the kids.
Anyway, I put in my profile I was interested in writing. Sue saw that and she sent me material from the writing seminar as way of introduction. Sue soon learned that I had lost my dog Abby and she mailed me Poochie, the floppy dog in the pictures. We began writing stories about Poochie. Somehow Poochie started calling us Momma and Daddy and other characters were added. Each of us had our own characters to write about. At the end of each day we would IM. email, or cell phone and report to the others what our characters had done that day.
At one point, I even had a website for Poochie. (PreciousPoochies.com) I photographed the pool sequence. I had it on the website. I don't know if it shows in the pictures, but in some of the shots I put Poochie in a plastic bag so he wouldn't get wet. I bet that would make your cat laugh!
Jeff & Sue are the proud Momma and Daddy
