Dog Day Afternoon

I read somewhere that you dog takes on your characteristics after years. My dog has messy hair, throws her back out often and is picky about what she'll eat. I'd say that's right on. Lately I've noticed when she sleeps she has to get right next to the bottom of the bed and put her belly and the bottoms of her feet up against it so that when I peer over the edge at her from up top it looks like she's a gravity defying dog laying patiently sideways waiting for something to happen. I'm not sure if i'm describing this in a way that you get the picture and I keep trying to take a photo of it but she is a black dog who absorbs light and doesn't show up on camera so this is going to be all you get. Also I don't know why I'm writing about it other than I found it notable and now I'm noting it.

My dog was the sweetest creature you've ever met. We have pictures of him laying on the bed with Bree as a newborn from her first day home. He was the runt of his litter. He had a bit of a weight problem, but he was smart and cute. His liver failed and he died before he could even reach his midlife crisis.

Yeah, sounds about right.
