I'm a bit old to be starting out in life again, but that's where I am. Sadly. Or gladly. It's where I am. Come along. Watch the fun. Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow.

Eleven Years with The Crow

Eleven years ago this evening, I was on the phone with Suzanne as Otter gave birth to her second litter. I was waiting to hear of the arrival of Hudson, the male puppy I'd already named and for whom I was anxiously waiting. Otter had other plans. I would have to wait another 2 years for Hudson, as this time she gave birth to four healthy, beautiful daughters (immediately dubbed "Otter dotters.") There was, I was told, one very small, very dark one, and even as I quickly switched gears and allowed that "I could take a girl," I knew that that little one would be my Crow. And so it was, and so it is. Happy birthday, Crow. You are, indeed, my Crow. And yes, you are, without question, the cutest German Shepherd I have ever seen. (She made me say that publicly.)
