Naming the future...
Besides finding (and subsequently returning) a perfect dog, Kicky and I also found this old slate chalkboard at our local thrift store last week. It's really heavy, so it's sitting on the dining room floor, waiting for a permanent home. That's $5 well spent, my friends. As far as Eero/Buddy goes, the positive thing (besides him happily reuniting with his family) is that we now know how much we enjoyed having a calm, older dog at our house. When the time feels right, I think we'll eventually adopt or try a Golden Retriever Rescue program. An Eero 2 would be nice...or maybe we'll name him after a different mid-century designer. Which name would you go with?
