Napoleon was the leader of post-revolutionary France. He is also the namesake of our new 1-year-old Weimaraner. We adopted him from a shelter in New York City (on 38th and 1st Ave, to be exact). There is another purebred Weim there - a female named Chase - in case anyone in NYC (or elsewhere) wishes to adopt her. E-mail me and I'll give you the info.

Napoleon is Alexander's new protector and guardian. Already fiercely loyal to A, Napoleon takes A on trips to the park. Napoleon also likes to take his soft toy and show it off on the way there. I have a feeling that they discuss things like world conquest and domination enroute to the dog run.

And I wrote a column that was published today in a NYC paper.

Beautiful dogs. Enjoy your family's new companion! With five of us in a two-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side, we never had a dog (which didn't stop me from pretending and filling the shopping cart at D'Agostino's with Lassie brand dog food for my imaginary pet).

Congratulations on the column, by the way. What subject, which paper? Inquiring minds want to *know* (and read, if possible!)
