The august days of dogs


Tucker here spent National Dog Day at the vet. Tooth extraction. Better him than me.

We’ve had him a few months now. He’s been a good addition to the household, save for licking the carpet. He’s pretty overweight, and we have asked him to reduce intake and increase output a bit.

I may latch onto him-  he could prove to be a good a bellwether for my own aging process. Or at least a test balloon, to see if all this diet and exercise pencils out.

Coincidentally, August has been hot this year, and the stouter members of the household would rather hide inside. He deserves a day off much more than I do.
