|Recently Melinda and I adopted a puppy from our local shelter annex.|
He is approximately 5 months old and a Chihuahua Terrier mix.
I named him Odd (short for Oddwick) and believe me when I tell you his name fits his personality.
get along pretty well, for the first few days Char just tolerated him but now they actually play together.
Please consider visiting your local animal shelter to provide a forever home to an animal in need.

Though life is sometimes as opaque as February's grey dome,
weighing you down with its featureless ambiguity.
Resurrecting within you the lost and confused child of yesterday,
be assured in the constancy of change. Turbulence can aid the oppressed,
it can rip peepholes through the dull shroud to the vast azure beyond.
Once witnessed, especially through the portal of an airplane window, the upside down kingdom can be instantly accessed.
for a few melting seconds your body pumps liquid sky, you taste the frigid air of
the upper atmosphere and hear the distant cry of gulls below you.
But only briefly, as clouds slip through the tightest grip and dreams fade from the keenest memory, you must return.
Anyway, it is madness to stare at the sun, there is enough joy catching a silvery glimpse through half closed eyes
or in watching the golden edges of a disappearing beach fade into the evening sky.
