Abby got a dog last Spring and I was immediately jealous. Although Matt is allergic to dogs and I don’t particularly like the way they smell or picking up their poop, the loyalty of a dog is something you can’t find in many other creatures (including people). I am pretty sure that the only other animal that rivals a dogs loyalty is probably a betta fish – they stick with you through it all! And they are pretty good at doing tricks too.

This is my new cubicle-mate. Please note the Robin Hood colored gem stones in the bottom of his tanks. I think he hates poverty too.

I am now accepting suggestions for his name. Please leave your thoughts below in the comments section. I will post the winning name in a later post. Right now the front runner is “fish” so the bar is pretty low.
