OK I gotta apologize to my new four legged friend Sesame for the poor taste I'm demonstrating by posting this incriminating picture of her but I could not resist. Are we sure dogs cant read? Maybe she has a sense of humor? Our adoption is going quite well. Not just for her but for us too. I've been afraid of dogs for many years now so this is a big step for me. Me and Sesame are now afraid of dogs together. We take walks and when other dogs start barking from behind (and sometimes not) their respective fences I throw them doggie treats. She remembers where each scary dog lives so well that she crosses the street so as not to get involved. The two of us together are pretty silly. What I LOVE about having a dog is the new social life I've entered. Every day I meet new neighbors, some I've never seen, others I see all the time but never talked to. I'm going to the Rio Grande every day, seeing the twilight sky and noticing the details that I somehow missed in my own neighborhood. Thanks Sesame. And sorry about the incriminating shot.
