This is Tessa. Tessa is a dog, and this image has not been manipulated in any way. I point this out because people who know me will suspect that some kind of PhotoShopping must have been done here, since I am and have been for many years wind-up-in-the-emergency-room allergic to anything with fur or feathers on it. Tessa and I have become pals, though. We met in November of 2007, right before Thanksgiving, and now she actually lives with me. I'm still allergic to other furry creatures, but Tessa is somehow a unique exception. Whew. (For an explanation of the sigh of relief, look here.)
