saturday january 23

today i was reading fifteen dogs at my girlfriend’s place when she (a real dog lover) insisted on taking the book and reading to me from it. the first paragraph she read involved one of the dogs being mounted by all the other members of the pack, then trying to fight back by mounting one of them himself, which led to a power struggle that resulted in two of the other dogs attacking him and "leaving him half-dead by the side of the pond." it was at this point that she gave the book back to me and showed no further interest in reading it.

I get a puppy in a week, and I've been warned well in advance that any fiction with a dog has the requirement that the dog is not hurt and lives. It was like when Bethesda reassured everyone that your dog companion in Fallout 4 can't die.
