We were passing through Waco Saturday night when we needed to grab a quick dinner with Opal in tow. We picked up a Chicago-style pizza and swung by Baylor for a spontaneous little date. Well, one thing led to another and we gave Opal a whole campus tour. At least as much as her smushed nose and absent endurance could handle. By the end of it, we had some really great laughs but also an overheated pup for whom we quickly went to buy a water bottle. Yes, our love of Baylor almost killed our dog. But as most Baylor grads would say, you gotta start ’em early, right? Hopefully next time these pictures will include a green and gold cheerleading outfit. We all have to move on from Baylor at some point or another, but isn’t it the best place to go back and visit?!“You’re telling me this makes me keep barking even after I stop?!”Practicing for her future graduation picture. “SQUIRRELS!!!!!!!!!!”She couldn’t believe she was standing in the same place where her godparents got engaged. Pro-Texana. Pro Ecclesia. She ran everywhere with this much excitement. Or she was in squirrel-chasing heaven. She wasn’t so much a fan of the fountain. Please notice her skid marks. Sometimes we still stand in awe, too, Opal. “Ruff, ruff, ruuuuuuuuff!” Aggressively barking at Judge Baylor as a real tour walked by made for two really embarrassed parents. But she started to warm up to him. And knew they’d be friends forever. As long as stars shall shine.
And there you have it. One of our absolute funniest memories with this dog of ours. So glad to have her back. Sic ’em bears! Shoot!! We never made it over to the bears.
