A letter to Caesar and Nietzsche

Dear Caesar and Nietzsche,

Sweet dogs. Happy 8th birthday (on October 2nd)! We love you as much as we did when you were clumsy and pudgy puppies at 7 weeks old.

With that said, we also know that you love us. And therefore, you don't need to give us any more presents. Particularly any more dead squirrels that you bring in during the night and leave on the kitchen floor for us to see first thing in the morning.

I'm just saying.

Erin, Jason, and Patrick

I want him to come home, too

Patrick, in the car yesterday afternoon:

"Mama, why are we leaving my little brother in Ethiopia for so long?"
