Hawken the Irish Wolfhound does his version of sitting in Abby's lap this morning.

Abby and I took turns brushing Hawken, which he thought was incredible fun. We brushed out quite a bit of loose fur, as you can see.

First, an epiphany: while considering a stat I read recently stating that 95% of all blogs are abandoned, it dawned on me that when I was writing in my paper journal every day, I routinely told my friends and interested parties, “You should keep a journal, too.” The next time I saw them, they had written one entry and stopped. 95% of all journals are abandoned.

Secondly, I started feeling puny yesterday afternoon, so today I am staying home. If I stay home and avoid stress, I might be able to feel better soon. I am taking a ton of cold medicine, drinking hot drinks, and attempting to sleep my illness away. I’m not crazy sick like a lot of people I know this season, and I don’t have fever, so this might work.

This is my standard go-to handful of pills when I have the crud.

Thirdly, we are bringing Hawken the Irish Wolfhound into the house several times a day. It is noisy and chaotic, since he can’t turn around or wag his tail without knocking something over, and while he wants to play with the Chihuahuas, they want to assert territoriality, so there is a lot of, “Woof! Yap yap yap yap!”

  1. That is a masculine handful of pills.

    Hawken just looks awesome. I don’t know how you guys can keep him in the house. I’ll bet the Chihuahuas have have no problem asserting their dominance. He just looks like a sweet dog. We saw a Husky today and decided we have to have one.

    As predicted, I slept right through the blue-blood-eclipse-super moon.
