I love dogs; unfortunately I can't take care of one right now. But today when I was out shopping, I picked up the most pathetically adorable stuffed toy basset hound, and I've already formed a very close bond with it. Its droopy eyes and downturned mouth remind me of session-guitarist-turned-military-defense-advisor Jeff "Skunk" Baxter. Think I'll call it Jeff "Skunk" Basset Hound.
