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?

Licking doesn't make it all better. Licking makes it worse.

So it was back to the vet to be fitted with a cone. Needless to say, Bao is not impressed. But he was much more chipper, this morning. He could hardly wait to get out and go for his walk. And his appetite has come back.

We spent all day Saturday on the couch, watching Lifetime movies. And all day yesterday on the other couch, reading. The only way to keep Bao still is to keep still myself. I have probably gained five pounds.

While we were having breakfast in bed this morning (we always have breakfast in bed) I showed Bao a photo of the new First Dog. He wasn't impressed. He still thinks they should have chosen a Shih Tzu. And he's convinced they've spelled his name wrong. Shouldn't it be Bao?

No, I told him. It's Bo. Like Bo Diddley.

Of course this made no sense at all to Bao, as Bo Diddley was before his time.

And he's really annoyed about the cone, which will have to stay on until the stitches come out, ten days from now.
