His haircut? Not so much…

My beloved dog Audrey passed away on Saturday and I’m struck by the level of profound sadness I’m able to feel over the loss of a 6-pound bundle of love and fluff. Saying goodbye to a pet is such an odd experience; I almost feel guilty for being so sad. She was just a dog! Except she was so much more than that — and she’d be insulted if she heard me say it.
The minute we got her, Audrey was a hit with me and my mother — but it took some time for the menfolk in the family to fall for her.
In her prime, she did everything she could to keep up with our dog Houston: her mouth was too small to pick up a tennis ball and play with it the way Houston did, so she would nip at the felt covering and hold it that way. She also took care of him in his old age — insisting on sharing a cage at the kennel and helping him find his way around when he went blind. At the same time, she was so fancy — dry food was fine for Houston, but Audrey needed canned (and preferred Brie). Despite being so cute strangers stopped her on the street, she had a somewhat icy demeanor with them but was wildly affectionate to those she knew and loved.
Let’s just say a love of French cheese wasn’t the only thing Audrey and I had in common.
Per pound, I have never loved anything more.
Audrey, you’ll be missed, but never forgotten.
Last Friday, I discovered I was the victim of identity theft — someone charged my checkcard five times (each charge 2 min apart) from Norton Antivirus for $143.09 each time. The irony of the Norton Antivirus thing isn’t lost on me.
Anyway, Bank of America has been wonderful to deal with thus far, but I thought I’d share this infographic on ID theft anyway.
