Happy Birthday Alameda!

I grew up watching cartoons and movies where every pet was a dog or a cat.  Not every family had an animal.  But when they did, it was one of the two.  I, on the other hand, enjoyed the company of a few guinea pigs, a gerbil, some fish, and a short-lived attempt at having a rabbit (it died after three days).  We also had a chinchilla, but it hated us and my parents had to give it away after my brother and I gave up on the thing.  Basically, even though I loved all of my pets in their own special way, I envied everybody that had a dog or a cat.  They grew into becoming almost mythical animals.  The top-tier of petdom. 

Finally, after years flirting with the idea, I can call myself the proud owner of a dog.  Now that she’s done shitting inside, screaming her head off every time I leave the house, and eating every sock she can find, I can firmly say that all of my built-up views of living with the responsibility of keeping a dog alive were completely right.
