The Dachshund went South. We went East. He was sent to Florida back in the Fall to further his studies and, for once, make something of his lazy life. Apparently, he was not fully supportive of our decision (see picture below - note: most Egyptologists will have you believe that the Sphinx is a man with a lion's body; we have reason to believe otherwise)
to send him away and has sent some pictures, characteristic of what we hoped would be his diligent new life in the subtropics.
He did not include a note with the pictures and it is difficult to estimate the progress of his studies from the pictures, so I must assume that all is going well for now.
I am hoping to see Bug again during his Summer vacation. Until that time we'll be here.
