fat instead of sugar


This is Ollie. We bring him home on February 1st.

The other night Stephen and I went out to eat. I haven't cooked in over two months, so eating out isn't too uncommon. But what was uncommon was our waiter. He stood on the opposite side of the room and watched us. He watched our faces until we looked ready to order, and then he approached us. After placing our order, he rsumed his lookout point and watched until our water glasses were empty. He then filled them. He watched us talk. He watched us eat. He watched us look full and then handed us the check. He watched us walk out the door. Stephen thought it was great service. I thought it was creepy. Really creepy.

Two different pet hospitals have sent us condolance cards. Of course I cry when I read them. But it's very sweet. Do people hospitals send cards when loved ones die?

  1. ummm were you guys the only ones at the restaurant? i hate when that happens. i don't know if i should tip them more for being attentive or leave without paying the check because it's CREEPY.

  2. my dog died today, and then i remembered i'd read your posts a few days ago.
    i don't know you--i found you through andy sherwin's blog a long time ago--and have read faithfully ever since.

    but your posts about your sweet puppy made things a little easier today. it's no fun to have a sick dog, but the alternative isn't very fun, either.

    hope you're doing better, Ollie looks like a sweetheart.

    Were you eating at La Jolla Groves?...because I think we've had the same waiter.
