charles and i took a walk in the rain this morning for some coffee. after sleeping for twelve unnecessary hours, caffeine was going to be the only thing to wake me from my zombie like state. it would've been much quicker had he not needed to pee on every single tree, bush, electrical pole, and fence. this dog was soaking wet. when we got home he ran up the stairs, dragged his body all over my rug and jumped on my bed. the only thing to calm this shih tzu down is a good session in front of the blow dryer. and now a dry little ball of fur is sleeping under my down comforter at the foot of my bed.
