Mammalian Assistance: The dogs came in and danced with me, although I accidentally bonked Signy on the head twice, because she WILL sneak up behind me and try to shove her head under my hand while I'm swinging my arms around in my own personal high-energy version of the White Man's Overbite. Also, Marlowe is being molested by Mith. (Guys, you're both neutered... oh, nevermind. It's spring,and that's what I get for naming a cat Marlowe.)
