Here he is, sitting in the middle of my parent's kitchen and just posing for the camera. His left ear got busted a few years ago. After something (probably an insect) bit him, it swelled up and when it returned to its "normal" form it looked like this, crippled. This year was strange. My family started out with 2 dogs and 3 cats, and by the end they're left with 1 dog and 1 cat... But it's all good news for my subject because nowadays he receives all the attention and he can do basically what he wants. My parents horribly spoil him.
