“Scratch a dog and you'll find a permanent job.”
Franklin P. Jones (identity not clear, either an American businessman, 1887-1929, or an American humorist, 1853-1935)

I have been feeling down and depressed the past couple of days – I don’t know, maybe it is a residual effect from another birthday, another year gone by. All I know is that I have been very impatient and testy with the family (poor things). Oreo loves to have her belly rubbed. She will lie on her back, paws bent, belly exposed, until someone notices and pets her. She is always so much happier after that. I think I may need someone to rub my belly – maybe that will make me feel better too.
