Every other day, after I give Leo his ear medicine he slinks off to find a quiet place to sulk. I normally don't see him for the next few to 12 hours. This time, however, he chose an easily visible sulking corner and I caught Rambo giving his condolences.

Charlie's New Castle

I spent last weekend building Charlie a doghouse. As per usual Messinger style, I over-built it. It's way bigger than necessary. Partly it's big to accommodate another dog (coming this spring) but partly it's just big. Here's the almost finished product--I still have to shingle the roof and paint the walls. The painting may be a long time coming since I doubt we are going to have a 24 hour period of 40 degree weather anytime soon.
