For Gwen

This song is for you, the dog we picked up wandering around a parking lot on Sunday. You were dumped, dirty, and hungry. We wanted to help, even though we live in a small college apartment and don't have much of a budget for kibble.

You were adorable, quiet, and sweet. I'll never understand how your owners could've given you up. Someone will love you just swell. I promise. Until then, enjoy the huge backyard at your foster home, we'll miss you.
