The only reason I'm still awake is because I brought work home and the last two days have steamrollered over me and squashed me flat.
Besides after work was DOG SCHOOL where Julie, the dog whisperer trained the humans to understand their canine friends who a) bark b) pee and/or poop on the floor c) jump on people d) ignore your requests/commands etc.
Julie is strict but kind. Felix whips around and stares intently at her whenever she says his name. Felix! See, there he goes. She rules him. She commands him. We are sad slackers compared to Julie.
We are learning:

Let's go (with emphasis)
After a 12 hour clinic day, I am just not really ready for class in a stinky dog pee room with other dogs who are ill-mannered. I mean, felix is perhaps not perfect but we're so proud of him. It's sick actually. He's like our child and we're the pleased parents. Gawd.
I must go to bed now. I go on call tomorrow at 7AM.
Fortunately, I found a bit of chocolate in my secret drawer and I ate it all. Staff of life=chocolate.

PS. I just finished Swamplandia! Fantastic book. And I'm on to a new series called The Killing, from Sweden, also fantastic.
