Within 15 feet of me are five living and breathing creatures; four of which are actually within arm's reach. I have one little Shih Tzu resting her head on my left arm as I type. There is an extremely bitchy cat flicking me with her tail. The other Shih Tzu is looking back and forth between me and the cat -- neither of us are in the mood to play with him right now. Of course, Ebie is lying at the bottom of the bed, wrapped in a blanket cocoon, and snuggled up against my left leg. The five of us will spend the next 8 or so hours on this very comfortable, full size bed.
Wait a second, I mentioned five creatures . . . whom have I forgotten?
Gustaph Schmurr . . . the sweetest, quietest, most well-behaved creature ever to reside in this home. That's right, folks, Gustaph is my baby sister's beloved St. Bernard. While Lulu and my brother-in-law are building their dream home on one of the Hawaiian islands, I get to hang out with Gustaph..
