We have become those weird dog people. She sleeps in our bed and goes just about everywhere with us. We go to dog-friendly restaurants – LBP! – and order organic dog food on Amazon.com. We are even going to take Willow to DC, because – gasp! – we wouldn’t want her to miss us, and of course, she wants to meet her paternal grandparents and tour the National Mall. Now, if only I can convince hubby that Willow needs a friend, we’d be a happy family of four… no, five. Can’t forget our other baby, Ruby, the lovebird.
