Last night on my way home from being out with friends, I saw an incredible black and white fluff ball on West 23rd Street. At first I just passed by with my usual "Hi, puppy!" but then was compelled to backtrack to lavish a bit more attention. Madison is 11 weeks old, an Old English Sheepdog, with fur so soft, paws so floppy, and delight so pure. I'm still happy, 15 hours after having "smooshed" him. If I have one thing to tell you today, it's this: Adopt a dog's attitude, and you're less likely to be a dick. Woof.
