It has come to my attention that some people read this blog only in hopes of seeing the occasional picture of Dizzy, my pointer-lab mix. I apologize for neglecting this mission, so here you go:
I always refer to Dizzy as a pointer-lab mix, but I have no idea of his true heritage. This was the book that convinced me he is at least part pointer; maybe German, maybe English, but it hardly matters.
A German Shorthaired Pointer ... is a regal comic ... [they] make cheerful therapy dogs ... they do not like to be without their people.
That's Dizzy. He is not the brightest, but he's a gentleman: naturally social, kind to the disabled and the sad, patient with children and perpetually good-humored. He is unreliable around squirrels and cats, easily distracted by interesting smells, and a little too attached to me. That can be annoying, but I admit I wouldn't have it any other way. Someone should find me indispensable.
