Meet my nephew - Theodore! I’ve been spending a lot of time with my sister’s beagle puppy, Theo since she adopted him from a farm in North Carolina at the end of July. At 15 weeks old he’s already showing his personality. Here’s Theo in a few words: energetic, sweet, social, dramatic, sensitive, independent, adventurous, and protective. He hates going to sleep and doesn’t like being told what to do - exactly like his mama.

I started the day yesterday helping my parents clean out the family storage unit. This entailed uncovering and moving boxes of my grandma’s straws and watching my sister sort, piece-by-piece, through six plastic containers of clothing she’s had since middle school.

Luckily, the drudgery was punctuated with some great finds, including a faded panoramic picture of Claire and I at the Grand Canyon and my tamagotchi!

That tamagotchi was the closet thing I ever had to a video game and I was obsessed with caring for it. He probably stifled to death on his own poop for the last time circa 1999. (I was the queen of over-feeding.)

Little Millie died on May 3rd. I didn’t even realize she was at the vet until my sister asked my mother (in the ongoing Hundley group text) how Mil was feeling. This was the response I read from my mom at my desk at work slightly before 11 am: “She’s gone, sweetie. She was in a lot of pain before, and now she is at peace. Dad and I just held her and she went to sleep with a deep sigh in our arms.”With that last deep sigh everything that made my dog sweet and lively and fun and loving was gone. That was it. Sad, very sad.
