Ready for Baby?
My dog wasn’t; I hope yours will be!
My the time this issue arrives in your mailbox, my newest little niece should have made her debut into the outside world. The fact that my brother and sister-in-law are expecting to deliver a baby girl at the end of July will be a surprise to only one party in our immediate and extended family: their dog, Hannah. I’ve written about Hannah before, and her photo has graced these pages on a number of occasions; she’s a big, pretty, expressive mixed-breed, and my brother is an excellent photographer. Hannah also has some issues with strange people from time to time, and while she’s always been rock-solid with kids, Keith and Leslie have wisely gone out of their way to prepare Hannah as much as they can for the baby’s arrival.
