A Thing Wherein I Infrequently Write Some Stuff

An Update

Things are going well, thanks. Baby Dog is so not a baby anymore. She's six and a half and is doing very well in Grade 1. Doggy Dog passed away in May of 2009, a very sudden deterioration sparked on by the usual big-dog hip problems. We had a mourning period of about eight months and then adopted Girlie Dog, a husky-shepherd mix who was then 2 years old and has been quite a handful compared to our sedate old dog. She gets along splendidly with Baby Dog, though, which is one thing we always felt we were missing out on with Doggy Dog. Girlie Dog consents equably to being hugged, tugged, lain on, and rolled on.

Was this post inspired by the return of Baby Doc Duvalier?

No, just by the fact that I noticed I hadn't posted in more than six months. And I figured I should do something a smidgen more substantive than the placeholders I've entered in the past. Every now and then I kind of miss blogging. I really did have to give it up in favour of other writing pursuits, and Facebook has kind of filled the void, but couple-hundred character updates really don't allow for the craft of short-form narrative the way a blog post did.
