All dog (and cat) owners have gone through this.
I am totally crazy about Otis, even as I am constantly apologizing for him to family and friends. He is adorable.
Completely gross, but adorable. And I adore him, especially when he lays next to me sawing logs while I work on my writing; writing that can be about anything at all, except for the things that I can’t bear to contemplate.
Hopefully, they had an equally happy ending.
