Meet Maurice





























We picked up Maurice (named after the french phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty) from the Michigan Weimaraner Rescue yesterday. We not only got a great dog but also went to P.F. Chang's and Wendy's. All in the same, awesome day.

Maurice is settling into his new home and routine. He's an older fellow, between 4 and 6 years, but when you see him leaping in and out of the ample snow in our backyard it's hard to think of him as anything but a puppy.

Many people out there (you know who you are) contributed to the Maurice fund in various ways. Thanks. And Janell, he wore his coat on the walk today and was by far the most fashionable dog in the vicinity.

Maurice is a great dog name. Baptiste and I have always said if we ever got a St. Bernard, we would name it Maurice. Seems perfect for a weimaraner too.

Congrats on the new family member!

PS: PF Chang's AND Wendy's!? Geez, you guys are living the dream.

PPS: I expect lots of Wegman-esque photos from you.

Weimaraner's are one of my two favorite breeds! Congratulations.

Nice choice Dan - much better than a Bulldog!
