I own a two year-old Australian Shepard called Checkers.
Owning a dog is fantastic.
I have a ten year-old boy called Alastair.
Having a child is even more fantastic.
But having a dog and a child is the most fantastical thing on Earth because I can receive a voicemail on my cell phone like this.
Laughter and joy can be found everywhere, even in the destruction of my own house.
