Dog Day Morning

THE DOGS leave today.

While my ex has been away this month, I’ve watched her two small dogs. And so have my two cats—especially the black alpha. Add an active eight year old girl to that menagerie and you have 34 busy but blissful days.

That time ends now.

This morning my daughter and the dogs shuffle off to her mother’s apartment, where her grandparents will take loving care of them all.

I mark the occasion by packing my bag for Boston and clearing away a last wet wee wee pad.

Funny the things you can get sentimental over.

    Jeffrey, I’m not a web designer, or any kind of designer for that matter. But pieces like this are why I’ve been visiting since 2001 or so. Thanks.

    Hope she’s recovering OK. If you think she’d like it, let her know a guy from Pratt is sending best wishes.

    something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

    When I initially commented I seem to have
    clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment. Is there a way you can remove me
    from that service? Many thanks!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
