Today marks three years without Fiver, my first dog, my longest relationship, my shadow, my poop machine. I miss him still. I miss his tolerance of me, his patience with other dogs, his particular smell (I never realized that each dog has a different smell). I miss how he hoarded bones and dug his bed and taught himself complex commands and navigation skills but refused to do something as simple as sit. I miss how he worshipped his automatic feeder and found every patch of sun and claimed it for his own. I miss the jingle of his tags and his particular clicking gait when he trotted around the house. For such a small dog, Fiver left a very big hole in my world when he left. I miss you, buddy, I hope you're eating bananas in the sun.

The fact that we remember the best ones so well, gives their lives meaning. I'm sorry you feel sad today.

This guy is getting so much better at impulse control. I tried to teach him this last year, but he wasn't really ready for it.

Guys, look at this baby leopard. First and possibly cutest thing we saw in Namibia. Seriously.

We're back from Namibia, and Google has been putting together some #autoawesome GIFs from my pics!

My first explanation for this was that it must be the year of the pig coming up. But it's not, it's the year of the monkey. So... Why does this nine-pigged necklace exist? #hongkong

The real question is why you didn't know about this sooner!

Maybe my coworker will believe me if I tell her I'm really sorry, but I lost her 85 pound dog while dogsitting, and then start showing up with an uncannily similar dog. Plausible?

School photo: nailed it. Wait a minute. Why aren't you in school?? When I was your age in dog years, I was finishing up law school! You're clearly adopted.

Henry says: "Happy Me Day!" This is from about two years ago, shortly after he threw his lot in with us, mostly for the bones. #NationalDogDay

Lawyercat to the rescue
I work for Google, but if you're looking for deep insights or secret sauce, I don't have any to share. If you're looking for random things I find funny or pictures of my dog, you've come to the right place.

+1: my original dog Fiver (RIP 2013), my new dog Henry, scuba diving (~300 dives), Kindle (100-150 books/year), food (including but not limited to pork belly), travel (50+ countries so far), sleep, too much TV, sun, gummy candy (I bring 20-30 pounds back every time I visit Zurich), friends, odd hypotheticals, Saturdays, lip balm (Smith's Rosebud).

-1: smoke, clouds, cold, insomnia, motorcycles, cats, delays, lamb, goat cheese, awkward small talk.
Bragging rights
I taught my dog how to go up and down stairs without dying of cuteness.

Pranking. Legal drafting. Reading for long periods of time. Appreciating absurdity.

Private tub room with steam room is an awesome way to relax and catch up with friends. The massage is OK, but after trying both, we're sticking to the tub rooms.

A solid option that makes it into our short list whenever we're considering going out to eat in the South Bay. Fun cocktails, and the food is good (although sometimes on the salty side). Reservations recommended.

Pros: 24-hour vet with in-house pharmacy, which is super-convenient. Cons: It's on the pricey side, and since there are so many vets, you rarely see the same one, so they don't get to know your pet's issues very well.

One of the few places we go to again and again. Stick to the skewers (my personal favorites are the pork cheeks and the tomatoes wrapped in thinly sliced pork).
