Today the world of dog politics and the spectacle that has been going on for months is coming to an end and the people who have been trying to find out what's happening in the back rooms of shelters think that perhaps there might be a light at the end of the tunnel
Tonight though I am deleriously happy with a much smaller victory - Buttercup has had her first poop since Sunday - and it could have been just as momentous an occasion to me as any news story in the newspaper. Old dogs who don't poop for 4 days is a big deal. And when they do poop - shows that maybe there's light at the end of the tunnel on other levels, too. Yea for Buttercup.
