Little Pete has been very patient. In spite of a tiny glitch (the name of this peculiar recipe will make everything clear), his recent Necessary Operation was a success. His stitches are out and he is free of the awful lampshade hat he wore and used as a weapon against pushy pack members and unwary human shins.
I just had to post one last photo of his dirty little face framed in that awful thing. Note the ever-wagging tail. He's a good boy.
