What’s for dinner?



Happy Halloween!

When my brothers and I were kids, and we’d ask our mom what was for dinner, sometimes she’d say, “Whatever falls out of the refrigerator.” That’s the approach I took for Gatsby’s Halloween costume this year: if it’s lying around the apartment and can double as a costume, that’s what he’s going to be.

Thus, I give you Gatsby the Great Bag of Dog Food!




Happy Halloween everyone!



Recently, I took a few days off of work just to decompress and do things around the city. Gatsby was thrilled that I was around a lot more, of course. One night, I grilled out and drank wine on my little deck. When He wasn’t being scolded for sniffing the grill, Gatsby would find a place to lie down and actually relax. We’re both now rejuvenated!



The Gatsby Doesn’t Fall Far

Apples are my favorite fruit. Apparently, they’re Gatsby’s as well. Every time I slice into one, he comes running into the kitchen and just sits and stares at me until I share. Pretty soon, I’m going to have to get a bag for him and a bag for me.



Happy New Year!

Good bye Christmas and hello 2013! I think we’re going to start the new year off right.

A little bone-chewing…

Yum, bones!

 And then a nice nap!




A Christmasy Time Had by All
