  • McLovin and Chewie, the cat and dog that run my life. As I'm typing this very story, Chewie, our Shih-Tzu Pomeranian, is sprawled out, upside down, in his bean bag; sleeping like usual. I sometimes wonder what life would be like for my husband and I without these two characters, but I quickly shut that idea out, for it is simply unfathomable to imagine. Life is good. Life is better with a cat sleeping by my feet and a dog nestled between us, under the sheets.
