It’s cold, it’s raining, and after shlepping about to and fro, all I can say is that there are times to relish animals pictures, and that time is now. So here are two — our cat Miyako in a book (she takes reading seriously), and our dog Mariah in a hat (from Peru actually, her gift for a moment from Ken’s trip). I think they both look fetching, but then again, I do live with them. What can I say? I think they both look fetching, and on a cold, wet night, animals in literature and Peruvian caps just kind of rule.
