Being a dog-owner can make a person do things they wouldn’t normally do, like talk about their dogs all the time, show photos of their dogs to their friends all the time, and post dog-related miscellany on Twitter all of the time. I’m guilty of all of the above. Along those lines, I’m also guilty of writing blog posts about my dog and dogs in general. Exhibit A: This blog post. I used to write more about Florida in general and about paddle-boarding, but now all it seems that I write about is Piper. It brings me some deal of comfort to know that I’m not alone in my single-minded dog-mania.
