Give Jeff Kramer credit for making CNY a happier place. His humor column is never funnier than when he’s writing as the family pet, and describing- as “Nate” did today- what it’s like to deal with adversity in a dog’s life:
“I was a basset case, but you know what? I got over it. Sometimes you just have to pull your tail out from behind your legs, slurp down a foil pouch of tender pork slices in gravy and put it behind you.”
Recommended reading: this column, and a whole month’s worth of this transplanted Californian’s musings about CNY life as only he sees it.
