ALFIE in residence
Here he is: to be four months old on August 1st. This will be his first night without his sister and brother and he is glued to my ankles...but adorable, and well-behaved so far. Inquisitive, but not intimidated. Very curious, very playful, but laid back, not at all hyper-active. And it is so nice to have a dog around the house again!
Just for the record: everyone remembers the one line..."What's it all about, Alfie"...from the Bachrach song....but the lyrics conclude:
As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Alfie,
I know there's something much more,
something even non-believers can believe in.
I believe in love, Alfie.
Without true love we just exist, Alfie.
Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing, Alfie.
When you walk let your heart lead the way
and you'll find love any day, Alfie, Alfie.
