Gruel for Dinner may, in fact, become a bl*g about puppies, because it turns out puppies are full of pee and must be walked every seven minutes, leaving no time for reading or writing or cooking (or choosing names, for that matter). For example, here's the recipe I used when our friend Beej Rog came over for dinner last night:
Dinner for Beej Rog
1. Order pizza
2. Call Beej Rog and ask if he would mind picking up pizza on his way to your house.
Classy, right? (Maybe that should be the dog's name: Classy. Or we could just call him Pee).
