As a fan of your work since the age of 8, I am puzzled by one aspect of this website: where the heck are the dogs? C’mon, I want to see pictures of Maxine, Juno, Arctic Flake and all the other more important figures of your essays. In most cases, the ‘picture of my dog’ section of a personal website comes off as pointless and dull. But if ever there was an exception, this would be it.

Now if only George Thurber was still alive, wielding a digital camera. My literary dog-worship could be fully indulged.

Daniel replies:

It's James Thurber. I will send a digital picture of Lulu to Ed, who can post it for your dog-worshipping enjoyment.
