If Hospitality was an art form, would you practice it in the Abstract? After a quick dusting the hair away, as the dog-lover do you offer your guest the comfy chair? Or as Post-Modernist? greet your guest at the front door with one dog bouncing; another thrusting head forward to be scratched? Or perhaps, different mediums? in oils, or clay or origami, as your dogs gift your guest with drool, dusty squeaky toys, or a paper napkin “found’ in the kitchen trash?

Why "notdonner" for my 'nom d 'guerre'? When we decided to add the dog, Comet. to the household, we didn't change his shelter name, but also couldn't remember it. Since it was the Christmas season, I thought of Santa's reindeer: not Dasher, not Dancer, nor Prancer... not Donner, etc. I don't know too many who are not dog-men. I have often eschewed politics in favor of talking about dogs, existentialism and everyday perspective as one of the dog-people. Not that I don't like cats, I do. But cats tolerate you, while dogs enjoy having you around. While a vice-president of the New York Mets (MLB) organization, and an attorney in New York share the same first and last name with me, I have no greater honor than having served my country as a U.S. Navy Senior Chief.
