Monk. That’s me, Monk. Don’t you just love a short name like that for a dog? Makes me sound so tough. I’m part Cattle Dog and part Pit Bull, but gentle as a lamb. I have learned all that “sit” and “stay” stuff, even as I am under two years old. My secret: classic poetry. Tough as I may look, I love John Donne, as in “stay, or else my joys will die, and perish in their infancy.”
See? You and I could be library pals together.
This past week four of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners.
