Anyone remember me?!?! I know it's been a long time. I really haven't been spending much time online lately and when I have been around I really haven't had much to say. Don't worry, I'll be making up for it today. LOLI wanted to share this very touching blog entry from one of the dog park crew (and it doesn't hurt that Max & I get a mention! LOL) Kaspi, I don't remember for sure but Brian may have met DarwinScatter My Ashes Over the Dog Park A couple of recent pics of (not Max!) Magoo. The other night he was sitting on the windowsill behind some flowers and I just loved how it lookedAnd yesterday Dad & I took the kids (his grandkids and my nephew and niece) to the zoo. Some of my favorite pics from the day:A lazy polar bearDad being sillyKodiak Bears at playCuddling lemursSeal taking a diveBaby sealGigs and Kapsi, just a point of interest since you visited here. Last week's tornado was centered just 5 blocks from here! I think we got off relatively easy as from as the damage goes, probably because we got hit so hard during the early March nor'easter when we lost 18 trees. We only lost about half a dozen trees this time (one landed just short of the pool on the deck!) while the complex just before us lost 17 or 18 trees. Also the office in the gym had a window blow out and the ceiling collapse! Thankfully Max & I were NOT out when the storm hit, but almost. Left before the rain started and by the time I rode the elevator down it had started so we just turned around and came back!

Your dad's a hoot, Chattles. I'm so glad that I got to meet him. It looks like you had a great day at the zoo. Love the cuddling lemurs.

I loved my dog.
I can't believe how inadequate that is.
She was my best friend, my therapist, my tranquilizer, my daily affirmation that life is fundamentally good, and my muse.
It's the last one you know about already, even if you aren't aware that you know.
My dog was Zuzu, and she has appeared in these pages on a regular basis, in the illustrations that accompany Carolyn Hax's column -- usually delivering a message too wise to come from a mere human. She died last week, a week short of 13, rendering me more human than I had ever cared to be.
She was an American Staffordshire terrier -- a pit bull -- and a wonderful ambassador for her breed.
You all know Zuzu the cartoon -- blunt, wry, curiously self-possessed, intent on world domination. I lived with Zuzu the dog.
I got to know how she'd come greet me even if I'd been gone 10 minutes.
And how her body language for "good morning" was to have all four legs in the air.
And how she'd be in a park full of people and dogs, and look for me.
And how she rested her big, cartoonish head on my thigh.
How she let me rest my feet on her as she slept under my drawing board.
How when I rubbed her belly and grunted, she would respond with a grunt, and back and forth we went in a game I called "What I'd Say," after the Ray Charles song.
Her licking every inch of my exposed skin, like she was painting a canvas.
Her expressive eyebrows, particularly delightful to her cartoonist companion.
Her weight when I carried her up and down the stairs, after her knees wore out.
When I realized it was time, I held her for hours until the vet arrived at my home. People keep saying I should feel good about the great life I gave her, but I know I was the lucky one, because she so effortlessly filled my world and unleashed in me a bottomless supply of love. If you had asked me the day before what my last words to Zuzu would be, I would have said, "I love you."
But when the moment came, the words I said, before I knew I was saying them, were "Thank you."
