I'm typing with flies buzzing around like an Egyptian plague. I'm not sure what we've done to deserve them, though this adorable Alsatian has something to do with it, I'm sure. Berwick is all trained to go outdoors, but she prefers good solid concrete underfoot, to the fuzzy feel of grass. Apparently, this nasty habit attracts flies.
Berwick has a few quirks, another of them being that she likes to sleep in the shower. I don't mind that, but she had to have a little window to look through, so she chewed a hole through the hot-pink shower curtain. That's not cute.
