Zuzu is God's Way of Saying "Sweet"

She woke me up in the middle of the night.
She needed me. . .

Oh, get your mind out of the gutter. I’m talking about my dog. She had to do a poo.
She is very sick.

That dog had the same urgency to go as I did to start typing when it hit me that I had some memories worth saving. When I started writing this she was outside in the damp yard. Usually she would bark sooner - but she has grown tired in the past few months.
Cancer has infected her utterly. Her liver is like a slice of Swiss cheese.
I got her when she was two and a half. It was 2007 and I was rounding out my first year of law school. I told my wife that I need to get a dog or I was going to go crazy. The wife didn’t want a dog, but I wasn’t going to give up. I found a dog I loved and I pursued her until the wife caved.

Tamera Luzzatto was at this time a Sr. VP at Pew Trusts (per the email). Previously, in 2001, she was Station Chief for then Senator Clinton.
