Gilbert reigns

It's interesting. Mom was pointing out to me yesterday evening while we were at the park that she doesn't think that one particular dog, Oscar, has been back to the park at all since he randomly attacked Gilbert one day. It was completely unprovoked, and everybody was shocked at the time. Oscar was never that well behaved in terms of following commands, but still. Not coming back at all is impressive.

Of course, the Fuzzucket does seem to be fairly liked by most everybody who comes. It's rather hard to not like him, assuming you don't fear dogs. He's just a giant living teddy bear. I love how people in the neighborhood will come out of the house, or else stop driving in the middle of the street, to say hello to him. It's terrific, especially since I can guarantee you nobody would have even thought to do that for most of our previous dogs, even if we were somehow out walking them. Getting to know neighbors is a grand bonus that came with getting Gilbert. Having to get out and walk him 2x/day no matter the weather or how ragged we feel, not as much. But he really is a love.

Give me another year, folks, and I'm going to turn even more into one of those people whose phone is full of pics of their dog, talks mostly about them, and generally makes fools of themselves to keep the muttly happy.
HA! I'm long since there.

Everyone look to the left

Because I'm never going to be just right...

My DW profile is still incredibly lacking in just about any/every way. I guess I'm subconsciously more reluctant to leave Lj and all the memories attached than I had realized. That or I'm just as equally bad at follow-through as I've been lately; not sure which.

Anyway, I need to edit my Lj profile to announce that it's going into stasis, and that my DW will be picking up whatever type of activity I do manage to do. I'm not sure why I chose Shakespeare this time as inspiration for my username (courtesy of Hamlet: I am but mad north-northwest) whereas I've been using the Louis Carol/Jaberwocky lines for the past several years.
Maybe because I want a shift?
Maybe because I have the Hamlet verse stuck in my head more than I'd like?

Anyway... later potaters
