We have officially joined The Club. No, I'm not talking about some insider business scheme or anything so shady. We are now proud owners of a golden retriever puppy. And thus, we are now members of The Club. It's really amazing the conversations one strikes up when talking to other dog owners. People with whom you've never been able to say more than "What's up" now have a reason to chit chat. I've written before about pet ownership so I won't talk to that again. Let me just say that it's great having this little guy running around the house and it's truly amazing how fast they learn.
