I’ve always like the way the number 8 looks. As Schoolhouse Rock so poetically put it, it’s a circle that turns round upon itself, and if you place it on its side it's a symbol meaning infinity.
Our beloved big yellow dog Bailey turns 8 today. All of our animals were born in 1999, that was the year we moved to the mountains where we now live, a very good year as it turned out. He's my very first dog and has been a joy since the day we brought him home.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of him, and a dog-related song from Tori Amos' new album, American Doll Posse.
