I'm also glad January is ending because it's been kind of a hard month. It was the first month since April 2004 that we haven't had MacGregor around. I still find myself calling Zane MacGregor, even though he doesn't look anything like MacGregor. I love having Arran. He's a great dog. But MacGregor was really special.
This is a video I made when we lived in Germany. MacGregor is the noisy one; Flea is the other dog. We lost Flea in November 2009 to prostate cancer. He was my baby.
Switching subjects... I just saw a commercial that pisses me off.
I hate this ad, because it just perpetuates how fathers get pushed out of their children's lives when Mom moves on to someone new. I know sometimes attentive stepfathers are a God send... It still pisses me off when mothers replace their children's fathers after divorce. If the situation were reversed and it was a stepmother presenting jewelry or some equivalent gift to her stepson in an attempt to replace his mother, people would be all up in arms. Stepmom would be accused of stepping on the natural mother's toes.
Once again... I wish people would be more careful about choosing their mates.
