I'm sick and lonely. I have some sort of viral infection, so for the past week, I've been hacking, feeling dizzy, getting headaches, and had stomach difficulties. It's not been a lot of fun, especially since I've missed a lot of class. I feel horrendously guilty about it. My congestion is almost gone, but I still feel dizzy and achey.
I woke up at 5 this morning. And I've been awake since then. I was reminiscing about dogs because I was looking at shelter ads on Craig's List
. I'm not allowed to have pets in this apartment, and to be honest, it's not a good time to have a dog anyway- my life is too unstable to be able to confidently provide for an animal for an extended period of time. But I still wish I could have a companion while doing something for the ridiculous number of shelter dogs that are out there.
I miss Niles, the current Shih Tzu/pitbull wannabe at my house. But I really miss Trixie, my childhood companion and the nicest dog on earth. My dad sent me a DVD of photos and he's been busily scanning things all summer. Here's my favorite shot with my dog, shortly after we adopted her from C.A.P.
I don't know why I wasn't smiling. I guess I wasn't into that when I was younger. But Trixie was so cute when she was little.
And remember, if you can, adopt shelter dogs. Up to 40% of dogs in shelters are purebred, and so many are euthanized every day. As I grow older, I get more vehement about this cause. Maybe some of it had to do with my love for Animal Cops
, or it might stem from the brouhaha surrounding the adoption of Niles. I don't know. But the high-kill shelters in Los Angeles are disgusting.
(And no, Max, I'm not going to start my rant about the conditions of dogs in your neighborhood.)

Still not doing a full post. But I've gotten back to playing around in photoshop.
I'm still not finished finagling. I'll possibly update with more corrections. But I'm playing around with Rafael-like editing.
