Do you have a dog? Alex wants one badly. Alas, our current apartment is way too small, but Alex literally can’t pass a dog on the street without saying, “Doggggggeeee! Doggggeeee! Oh, you’re a dog, you’re just a dog!”

My friend Lina and I always say it would be funny to name your dog a very human name — like Kevin or Brad, or Jennifer or Kristen. For some reason, that really makes me laugh.

Do you have a dog? What’s its name?
