Chairman Bao is a Shih Tzu. We travel a lot. I drive. He watches. We've logged at least 10,000 miles and he's never once said, Sweetheart, don't you think you should stop and ask someone?

Here's the photo that appeared in the local newspaper. The caption read, Bao, a Shih Tzu owned by Gail Graham, finds a quiet spot away from the bigger dogs after winning the Tacky Tourist Award as the best-dressed at The Last Wag of Summer.
They got it all wrong. I don't own Bao -- Bao owns me.
The table in the foreground is really fabulous. It's handpainted, with doggy faces. You can order them, and the artist will paint anything you like. I'd love to have one that was all Shih Tzu.
We got back from Rocky Point on Monday. Leaving Puerto Penasco was pure Lawrence of Arabia -- the wind was blowing a gale, sending great streams of sand across the roads and making driving really difficult. Driving into a mini sand dune is as bad as driving into a snowbank. The car goes all funny,
It's amazing, how this fabulous resort community is just rising up out of a vast expanse of sand and nothingness. When I first visited two years ago, the handful of condominiums sort of loomed up in the distance like an up-market Brigadoon in the middle of the desert. Now there are twice as many condos, and more coming. Like mushrooms after a spring rain, as the Chinese would say.
Anyhow, we're back home and back at work. Well, I'm back at work. Bao is sleeping at my feet. It's a dog's life.
