It's been just over a year since Sasha left. I finally acquiesced to the Things' request for a new pet (in all honesty, the request was Nate's.) This one gets fed twice a day and sits quietly on the counter until it's molded into a loaf pan.
Sourdough starter - quiet, low maintenance, and it feeds the fam. With 4 Things to clean up after, why would I ever go back to keeping a drooling, pooping, farting, shedding, barking, licking, biting dog?
