July 14, 2012. The day after my birthday, and its party, Shereen and I flew to Texas in the morning. She got a little sleep, but I didn't bother with it. As sleepy as we may have been, we were kept on our toes by Dillon, the four-month-old Pekingese that Mom and Bob are in the process of adopting. Puppy teeth: now I remember what they feel like.
