the new chez col permits dogs. so i will very soon add a new member to the west village kenny clan. as you know aretha is named for one of my music heroes. my new puppers shall be too and i am planning on getting a boy (though city shelters are so rough i might just fall in love with a girl). what should i name him? i had suggested otis for otis redding but a pal said i am treading into names that my yuppie friends might want to use for their kids.
