Little Brother has learned a new trick. - Really long posts about nothing.

03:33 pm - Little Brother has learned a new trick.

We only had the velveteen doggie here for less than a month, but Jack has learned a few new things that are more noticeable now.

See, the velveteen doggie liked to go outside. But she also liked to have people with her. I would open the door, and she would look up with that "I have cancer you know, you should come out and spend some time in the sunshine with me." And most often, I did. Jack tried that trick today, but it doesn't work as well when you don't have cancer, when you look like you're part ferret, or when you're not velveteen.

Another change - we're not having cheese and tramadol sandwiches for everyone anymore. It later became Turkey & Tramadol sandwiches after I realized how bad the OTHER end of the dog started smelling when all pills came wrapped in cheese. Either way, there had been a consolation snack for Jack every time pills were doled out. Today he is sad, because I still pull out turkey, only he doesn't get any! He's been moping about the house, trying to figure out what he's doing wrong. He hasn't licked his junk in HOURS. Poor guy.

For some reason, I can’t see all of this content, stuff keeps hiding? Are you taking advantage of java?
