A Day in a French Life... by Kristin Espinasse
.........................................................................

If our Golden Retriever, Smokey, were here to write his Day in a (Dog's) Life column—yes, here—instead of at the vet's office—he might have captioned today's photo: "Some chats have all la chance!"

He might even wonder why the French word châtrer had anything at all to do with little ol' him...
when, clearly, with the prefix "chat," does this emasculating mot begin!

Oh, walways me, walways him—wish the both of us luck at the veterinarians!
