Last week I met a little Westie named Charlie. He's a puppy. I started playing with him and then my friend Schnitzel came over and we were both playing with him and I'm not sure what happened but I think I kind of lost it. All of a sudden all I could think about was  Charlie. Pat and Anna were not happy and said I was being much too rough on the little guy, so I ended up on time-out for the WHOLE rest of the walk. That's the long way of explaining why Lucky and I were alone with Pat today at Laite Beach. Charlie was with my usual crowd. Lucky wasn't interested in Charlie…what is wrong with him? But the beach is always fun no matter who goes with you.
