He was an Afghan Hound name Kabul. Since him I have had other Afghan Hounds.... Perhaps I am looking for his ghost. He is the only one that I sometimes think about. Often, if he comes in to my mind when I am working, it alters what I do. The nose on the face I am drawing gets longer and sharper. The hair of the woman I am sketching gets longer and fluffy, resting against her cheeks like his ears rested against his head. -Pablo Picasso

As long as Alfie is around, he will make the posts.
No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does. -Christopher Morley

If we honor the first musher to cross the finish line, we must also honor the last. A red lantern is awarded to the last musher to finish. The longest time for a Red Lantern was 32 days, 15 hours, nine minutes and one second by John Schultz in 1973. Not sure what takes more guts - to finish first or to simply finish?

Alfie is still a pup. Now that Alfie is a bit older, he can go outside for his walks - yeah! So everything was fun and games when we were outside. A leaf that would blow across our path was pretty much the greatest thing for Alfie. And I never did realize how much litter there is until Alfie pointed it out by picking up each piece. I am beginning to fall for this pup.
