A word from the dog


Hey! Uh … could you look down here for a minute?

I’m sorta sleepy, but also sorta want you to pet me.

I’m tired. Remember when it was just you and me?

(And, well yeah, that other dog, too, I guess). But mostly you and me – home alone. Girl Human and Small Human were gone for hours. You would always let us have Second Breakfast.

Now everyone is here all the time. I love everyone. I get walks every day. I’ve jogged with the Man every morning since April.

But …

No more Second Breakfast. No more Lunch.

I am tired now. So tired..

And, I miss bacon.

Your (first) dog,

I am excited to be able to participate in a live discussion with Dr. Amber Schmidtke, the Macon microbiologist who writes the Substack newsletter, Georgia COVID-19 Updates. I’ve linked to Dr. Schmidtke’s newsletter before because she is a rare source of reliable, clear information about the state of the pandemic here.

Dr. Schmidtke agreed to be on the Decaturish.com live Twitch show this evening, August 12 at 6 p.m. If you have a Twitch account, you can view us live. If not, you can watch the recorded show on the Decaturish Media YouTube channel.

She will be talking about the latest COVID information and taking questions from the audience. I think it will be a great show.
