I’m sorry tonight to read Lindsay and her family are losing Zipper, their dog of the last 14 decade and a half.

I always considered it a compliment that sometimes we resembled each other. From just before we met in ’00:
PlanetL—: wait’ll you hear zipper make that exact sound.
For Linz, you in 12/98: “I missed my dog. I’m glad I have a dog again.” To your readers — blog posts or not — “I haven’t written much about Zipper,” you mention — your dog was never far from what you wrote.
