But tonight, Darcy is late getting off work, and I'm hanging out with nobody on SecretChat, so I'll update with the big news. We bought another dog (2 dogs, one cat, one computer geek). He is a 10 year old beagle formerly called Charlie--we now call him Marley. He's a bit fat and slow and lazy, so I can sort of relate, you know?? We got him at the Humane Society and he is already exerting a calming influence on Maisy the Crazy Pointer Mix. She meanwhile keeps him active (though he could stand to be a bit less active on the humping front).
We think his previous owners neglected him somewhat, as he is overweight, yet extremely eager to go on walks, nice long walks.
(Don't know how MUCH later, though...)
