Operative JF writes in regarding the lovely Lady J.:


At one time had two of them (CKCS’s, that is). Mine were totally elfin’ untrainable – probably because they (2 sisters) were the litter. 

But you can forget all that when they snuggle into the space between your ear and your shoulder blade. 

I mean, Really! Who doesn’t like a cuddly dog?

Dear JF,

As Dr. J. writes this, Lady J. is sleeping on his shins. Dr. J. was going to suggest President Obama, but he likes his cuddly dog with a tamarind chili sauce…OOOHHHHH!

In addition, The Czar chimed in:

Dr. J., 

She’s beyond cute. The Czarina–and her mother–are nuts for charlies. There’s quite a few in Muscovy, and the Czarina’s mother talks to each one like they’re idiots. If the Czarina could, she would “complement” Cujo, our semi-tame wolf by procuring one. With all the odd dogs in our neighborhood that seem to zero in on our house, she keeps hoping one will be a charlie so she can keep it. They are cute, friendly, and by God they’re great with kids. Congratulations again! 

The Czar 


You are right. Lady J. , and CKCS’s are great with kids. Indeed, Lady J. put up with quite the onslaught of attention givers at The Lil Medstudent’s flag-football tournament this weekend. She was drawing more attention than the game. Thanks for writing!

About Dr. J.

Dr. J. was born the son of a New Atlantean sharecropper who cornered the market on notoriously delicious seaweed Himanthalia elongata (popularly known as Thongweed). With his newly minted seaweed fortune, Mr. J. the Elder sent his son to attend the Academy of Sorcery, Alchemy and Surgery where the good doctor apprenticed with the finest sorcerer surgeons in New Atlantis. Dr. J.'s areas of expertise grew to include bleeding, cutting for stone, trephination, medical divination with outstanding spatial and temporal resolution, cybernetic sorcery and medicinal alchemy. When King Orin of Atlantis fell ill with the Ick, Dr. J. stepped in with an elixir he devised from a combination of minerals, herbs and saps. Curing the king, Dr. J. gained significant notoriety which afforded him the luxury of time to devote himself to his side hobbies which include porpoise racing, the study of supply-side economics, cooking and raising his lovely merchildren alongside his lovely bride the archconservative Mrs. Dr. J.
