This is neat

I really do read things other than the NYDailyNews.

Anyway-- have a link.

It looks very clean,

Dolphin looks quite pleased too.

In other animal news. Hazel got her stitches out today. I ended up taking her in, rather than doing it myself. I wanted the doctor to look at her incision.

All is well, and she acted very polite at the vet. We walked back from Park Slope afterward. It is warm, and there were lots of other dogs to meet, and people jogging, and babies in strollers. She used very good manners, but after about 15  blocks she said that she was done. She sat down on the sidewalk, and that was it. Took a while to get her going again.

She is wiped out now. So am I, actually.

Navy dolphins! How about that?! I always thought that was a complete myth :)

I'm glad Hazel has had her stitches out and is fine and dandy. Hope she's recovered from her epic walk!

I thought it was a myth too. War dolphins-- just seems wrong. Of course we have always used dogs in war... That is wrong too I think.

Dolphins actually are dogs, as far as I can tell. They fill the same place, just in the water. (Archie may well look perplexed.)

Hazel is fine now. She likes going to the vets front room. She likes meeting all the animals there. She just seems to think every time that she can somehow avoid getting taken into the back!

Using animals in war is always wrong, but they always seem to have been there. Have you come across the Animals in War Memorial Fund? One of the main benefactors was the current Earl Cadogan. Seems very fitting seeing that George appears to have been so devoted to his animals.

Archie suspects you have been at the Kraken again.... ;)
