Puppy's Single-Sock Diet

They say fiber’s good for the digestion. I favor cotton: Jimmy’s gray athletic sox tossed haphazard on the floor and tasting of ball games on the corner lot. Missy’s socks in pastel blue – I always leave her one of two. And once, (what a treat!) Mom laid out a pair of fancy argyle socks, brand-new for Dad’s big feet. I took just one, leaving its mate so everyone can see how its subtle hues complement red-sable Me.
