Fire Dog

meet Fire Dog.
Fire Dog, meet the world.

Tess has multiple personalities a very good imagination.  She's created a few super heroes and I kid you not, she spends the majority of her day as one of these characters.

There's Betty Bat, who is really nice and is a mama and cares for others.  
There's also King of the Sweethearts.  Not Queen mind you, because she'd certainly have none of that although we suggested it.  According to Tess, King of the Sweethearts is here on the planet to, "Spread nice all over the world and protect Grammy's."  I swear that's a direct quote.  

But most of the time, we find Tess has transformed into Fire Dog. I have no idea where she came up with this persona.  
But let me tell you what I do know about Fire Dog.  
She is a she.
She breathes fire.  Duh.
She fights evil.  
She has paws.  
She growls a lot!  
In pubic.  
To strangers.
Every where we go.
All the time.
I asked Tess why Fire Dog growls so much and she said it was because, "she's a dog."  
Silly question. 
Howling is often required... although I'm not sure why.  
Sorry neighbors.
See that button right there?  Look closely.  If you push it, (and she asks people, complete strangers really, to push it) the wings come out. 
Fire Dog also has the power of both lightning and electricity.  
And any other power Tess can dream of.  
Here Tess is counting off all the powers that Fire Dog has.  
There's a lot of running around going on too.  
I think she's in hot pursuit of bad guys.  
And there must be a lot of bad guys and evil forces around our home because Tess frequently encounters them and has to engage in arm-to-arm combat!  
We are very safe around here thanks to Fire Dog.  
And just in case you thought those were sticks in her hand, they are not.
Those are swords.
Of course.  
Good golly this child keeps us on our toes with the things she says and does.  
She is a hoot to parent.
And I wouldn't change a single thing about her.

  1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!! I love that she let you capture her as Fire Dog (out of curiosity, does she also control fire?). She is adorable! Great shots!!

  2. Amy--Fire dog does breathe fire, like a dragon I guess. Guess I kinda left out that tidbit.
    Thank you, Amy!

  3. I don't think there's a match on the planet for Fire Dog. Evil forces don't stand a chance!

    Anyway, I just love her imagination. And I love the way you captured it. Just beautiful!

  4. Love it! And I love the way you captured this in photographs.
