Lorenzo & Ceibos

Lorenzo, the Bounder look-alike from across the street, is now officially our "pretend dog." This afternoon we took him for an hour-long walk up Azcuenaga to the park across from the Buenos Aires Design Center and then around the British Embassy and back home. It was a treat to have some doggie time.

Here's Kurt with Lorenzo, framed by blossoms of a ceibo tree. The ceib0 blossom is the national flower of Argentina. A treeful makes for a pretty impressive sight - just about as impressive as the jacarandas in the spring.

You might enjoy Roger Ebert's recent post about dog ownership...

"I have an empty space inside myself that can only be filled by a dog."

I am happy you guys found a pretend dog. That's exactly what I've been wanting. It's much more practical with my lifestyle than actual ownership.
