We've been staying at my folks' house the past few days. It is a big, old (pre-Civil War era) house with lots of things for toddlers to break. We've only had one casualty so far. My family is at the beach and I'm taking car of the dogs. Really, they just have one dog, but Raleigh's friend dropped off his dog right before we got here. Lovely.
Here is what I've learned about dogs: they produce an excess of dander, they whine at night, they beg for my food, they scratch at doors, they are more obedient than toddlers.
Here's what I've learned about myself: I am allergic to dogs.
