Cali came with my marriage. She was non-negotiable, unlike my ugly couch and his box of Walgreen’s receipts dating back to 1972. She is the dog (see left) in the new picture above my smiling face. She had just gotten back from the groomers that day and if you look closely, you will see the two little red bows that make her look so cuuuuute!!! They lasted about 25 minutes before being pulled out. She likes to snooze on my futon while I am “working” , which sometimes consists of reading The Onion, Funny or Die or catching up on Facebook. When I take a break and lay out my yoga mat, she thinks it is an invitation to cuddle. She is very jealous and if she catches me & the hubs smooching, she is sure to insinuate herself right into the thick of things. Such a child.
