the only earth?

stop the presses!

"The New York dog is different from the national dog . . . The national dog has sort of a Midwestern look, well mannered with a good groom. Maybe a golden Lab. The New York dog is streetwise, spunky, intelligent. It's the kind of dog that would say: `Arghruff! Make my day.' "

The New York Times conducted a dog census based on licensing records. They present statistics about the prevalence of dog ownership (guardianship?) by age group, reveal the most commonly owned breed by ZIP code, and list the most popular dog names. Maps, slideshows, and video links are available for further perusal.

I biked to campus, went to some meetings, got a flu shot, came home,
took the hound for a walk, and am now watching television and posting
to livejournal by email.
