Weinie is old for a dog— in fact the vet told'us that her age is comparable to 70 in a person, so we don't know how sucessful the operation will be. I've never liked dogs very well, or any other animal for that matter, but you do get attached to them when you nave them in your home. So I'm a little surprised at how much I miss Wienie already. , , * . * * WHEN I WENT OUT TQ BRING IN,the paper tho other morning there 'was an envelope in the mailbov addressed to "Grace's Wold."
