Abby and Andy were Labrador Retrievers of mine who have since passed away. I started this blog to chronicle their lives.
Now that I've told their stories, I will post whatever pops into my head.

A bad habit of mine is giving people nicknames. Most of the time those nicknames are kept to myself, but occasionally I'll let one slip out. The names can be silly, such as 'Mr. Kumbaya' or they can be downright mean. The one I regret is calling a coworker an 'ass monkey.' (For the record, the guy is white. I don't want anyone to think I'm a bigot.) I told some other coworkers and damned if the name didn't stick. Regrettably, I even said it to his face one time. After that incident, I promised myself that I wouldn't give people nicknames, but here of late, that bad habit has been creeping back.
