Lagniappe is gone now, but his memory lives on.
I always joke with my wife that if our dog gets out of the yard, all we have to do is open the refrigerator and he'll be there.
Changes and surprises are good things.
Barkley loves to grab towels off the counter. I was washing dishes by hand(yes, I have a dishwasher, but with just one in the house, it'e easier and uses less water to wash them by hand) the other night. I had a towel on the counter and was places the dried dishes on top of it. Out of the corner of my eye I see Barkley grab the little corner of the towel. A Banshee couldn't have screamed louder, "NO"! and he dropped it before I had about 6 classes and two plates broken on the floor. Baby gate for kitchen, I believe is in order.
