Little Bo

It just dawned on me I'd never introduced the new dog.

In case you don't remember - or didn't know me at the time - we lost our pal Wags in mid-June. Our other dog, Wags' lifelong companion Maggie, was very much upset by his loss. So, we started looking around for another rescue dog the weekend after Wags died.

On Day Two of our search - Day Three after losing Wags - look who we found:

He resembles Wags to an almost freakish degree. He came from a shelter near Athens, GA and was literally pulled off of Death Row on the very day we lost Wags. His previous owner surrendered him for financial reasons and gave his age as four and his name as "Bo".

Wags also was four and my boyfriend's name is Bo.

So, now we have Big Bo and Little Bo, Maggie is happy and Pete the cat is confused.

My only public comment on healthcare reform.

Dear Medical Insurer,

I have multiple sclerosis.

Why can't I even get insurance to help pay for a mammogram? Pap smear? Eye exam? Mole check?

You suck,
