Not only was I watching 30 Best and Worst Beach Bodies on E!*, but when the Sarah McLaughlin ASPCA commercial came on, I cried. Like, real tears. Two tissue tears. Pathetic, considering I’m a grown woman with a kid. But . . .

We adopted Mo from the ASPCA in 1999. He’s been up and down this year with the whole kidney thing. Pretty down, lately. So, yeah, the commercial got me.


I’m going to have years of this, huh?
