And a good dog...

Reilly was adopted 10 years ago tomorrow. I told Buttercup it was 10 years today as a bit of enabling fiction — as our comp pedagogy professor called such subterfuges.

Be all that as it may, this pup has seen me through a lot. He's won over plenty of dog-haters and chased his fair share of squirrels and what-nots. These days, he's slowing down and not moving the way he did when he chased deer and foxes through the woods of northwest Arkansas. That said, he's been there for a lot of ups and downs, and he's turned into the best friend Buttercup and I could have had.
