So … the dog does this adorable thing in the morning/early afternoon. We have a skylight that leaves patches of sun throughout the apartment. On sunny days, Hamlet will follow the “sun spot” as it moves down the stairs and plop himself down wherever it goes. (His little body just so happens to fit perfectly within each step in the staircase.) Here’s another photo of him sunbathing.
Okay, so, I’ve determined that the next loved one who will be senselessly attacked for their association with me will be none other than my favorite furry beast. I’m not sure Hamlet is mature enough to understand what’s going on, though. HOW DO I EXPLAIN BIGOTRY TO A FIVE-YEAR-OLD?!
