A Revolution In Pet Blogs

Yesterday Eko and I went for a little trip back in time.  My dad is a big history buff and actually lives in an old house   (How old is it? Even older than my dad! ba-dum-crash) he restored.  We swung by at lunch time to give Eko a history lesson.  Lesson
Yesterday Eko and I went for a little trip back in time.  My dad is a big history buff and actually lives in an old house   (How old is it? Even older than my dad! ba-dum-crash) he restored.  We swung by at lunch time to give Eko a history lesson.  Lesson #1: 18th century fireplaces were big. Really big.

Sure, the grate looks pretty normal up close, but if you zoom out a little…

The fireplace takes up nearly an entire wall!

You could cook an Eko Stew in that pot

Lesson #2: We reviewed/updated the The Declaration of Independence

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness dog treats

Lesson #3:  A historical reenactment of the Revolutionary War

Pretty sure Colonial Williamsburg is going to call Eko with a job offer any second now

Eko now knows about the Revolutionary War and you now know that my sense of humor is genetic – my dad picked up that tri-corner hat just for Eko!

    You can make a poster out of last picture – The Revolutionary Eko.

  3. I share your dad’s love of history – I’m actually in an archaeological group and just love discovering what’s buried underfoot. I’m sure Eko would be a great help on digs, he could probably dig faster than all of us!

    I love to got thru old houses and see how it use to be! Looks like the glasses were made for someone with a thicker lens on his right and you look good in it! LOL!

  5. Kuruk says:

    You have a full kitchen in that fireplace! Wooowoooo, Ku

  6. Wow, what a fireplace/kitchen cooking area! It’s huge! And, that last pic? Too cute!

  7. Emmadog says:

    Love it! That is pawsome that your dad got Eko that hat! My Gramma sometimes brings me stuff like that. How fun!

  8. the pursuit of dog treats – Yay! Your pictures are great , Eko! We had such a giant thingy too in my kitchen. Once a pigeon came down through the chimney ( not roasted) and we had a hornet colony in that thingy, so the staff placed a woodstove there.

    Now That is what I call a fireplace! And I love that last picture of Eko especially; he must be one cooperative pup 😀

  14. Your Dad must be one cool guy 🙂
    This was great.

  15. HA! loved that drummer. Your dad must be a great carpenter, his house looks very authentic. I can’t imagine how flippin hot it would have been with that giant fireplace going. Eko’s so compliant with your antics, what a dog! The glasses are priceless.

    What a handsome boy you are Eko…all dressed up. Love your hat!

  17. Love it 🙂 We are going through a history moment as well visiting old UK manor houses. Tomorrow we are having afternoon tea at Althorpe House (Lady Diana’s old family home and where she is laid to rest). I will write about it afterwards x

  18. Love that last picture!! We also love history so we found this post very interesting. Hugs and nose kisses
