Chapter the third:
The Home of the McHounds!

This is the place where Mark and Diane show off their darling greyhounds, Jazz and Libby. The dogs don't mind; they love the attention.

Jazz and Libby live in a house on the northwest side of Chicago and thoughtfully allow us to live there with them, provided we make room on the couch, give them treats, and scritch their ears frequently.

Urban sprawl, greyhound-style

"A Grehound shold be heeded lyke a snake
And neckyd lyke a drake,
Backed lyke a beam,
Syded lyke a bream,
Footed lyke a catte,
Tayllyd lyke a ratte."
--Dame Juliana Berners, Boke of St. Albans, 1486

"My goal in life is to be the kind of person
my dog thinks I am."
--Plaque in the Author's kitchen

"Happiness is a warm puppy."
--Lucy Van Pelt

Jazz and Libby, neck and neck
"We wish we could read; those quotes look really interesting!"

Jazz and Libby at the door
The dog searches until he finds me
upstairs, lies down with a clatter
of elbows, puts his head on my foot.

Sometimes the sound of his breathing
saves my life -- in and out, in
and out; a pause, a long sigh....
--Jane Kenyon
