And if he does, he's better at shutting up when we return just after seeing or hearing us, without needing snuggles first. But he's still in a "I want to be touching you all the time, put me on your lap!" stage, which is... awkward. Moonpie went through this stage too, and I get it, I do... but I want my lap!

Also, his front legs are slightly bowed. Apparently this is a known issue with poodles. It doesn't seem to be harming him, and he's already fully grown, so I won't bother sending a bug report calling the vet over it.

Also also, every time I mean to say "poodle", I start to say "poogle" instead. All those years of Neopets, I guess. I didn't even like poogles! But sometimes, I just can't remember which is a real world pet and which is a Neopet.

Also x 3, cats keep their penises inside them. Dogs apparently do not. Every time he rolls over on his back for a tummy rub I go "Egads, what the hell IS that!?" before remembering that it's not a bizarre growth, it's actually supposed to be there. (Funnily enough, that's what happened the first time I saw a cat penis as well. My parents had a hard time convincing me it was supposed to still be there even though he was fixed!)

The U.S. has the worst rate of maternal deaths in the developed world, and 60 percent are preventable. The death of Lauren Bloomstein, a neonatal nurse, in the hospital where she worked illustrates a profound disparity: The health care system focuses on babies but often ignores their mothers.
