For those of you who don’t know, this is our dog Joey. He has calmed down a lot in the past year or so and it’s been a bit odd for me to come home to a less active dog than I remember before I left for Australia. In any case, I’m growing to love the “new” and more relaxed Joey. I get to spend a lot of time with him during the daytime since I don’t start classes until much later in the day. He sits around and sleeps a lot and I’m finding his new behavior very peculiar in a soothing way.

This is a portrait of him in our living room. He posed for a good 10 minutes or so without moving. Good boy.
