Officially a Dog

Today Zero and I walked down to the Santa Monica Animal Shelter to license him with the city. By the front desk there are two huge cat cages, one filled with kittens. Zero walked up to the one with kittens and just stared at them.

"I don't know what they are, but I want one! Can we take one home?" he asked.

"Not until you're older and can care for it yourself. I don't want to end up having to do everything myself," I replied.

He sniffed them a few more times, but then realized that something under the counter smelled delightful, and was therefore more interesting.

Sadly, the license tag (it's a small tag that dogs must wear on their collars) is a small pink-purple flower. Hopefully it's is a skull and crossbones next year, since Zero isn't feeling too manly at the moment.
