Dogs in Pairs

Photos by Salt Water New England
Some believe that dogs should come in pairs.  There can be flexibility with the exact relationships, sometimes siblings, parent/child, or from the same breeder.  The only guideline - and even this is debatable - is that they do have to match.

The rationale of such people is always quickly interjected into conversation, if never quite convincingly, such as, "they keep each other company," or "two is just as much work as one."  But regardless, just as there are "dog people," there are "pairs of dogs people."  Aligned names may be the surest tell.

Of course, as with the Shakespeare's comments on greatness, some people simply have two dogs thrust upon them, unplanned, and discontinuous from any greater life pattern.  In the case of these dogs, the pairing was"primary" and "emergency backup," designed to ensure Golden continuity.

Pay what you can...

Yankee Magazine Profile from 1968; McPhee Biography.  Photo by Salt Water New England
Admissions to Deerfield have traditionally been in large part a subjective matter, since the headmaster for years required virtually all applicants to appear for a personal interview and then would rely on his own impressions.  If he liked a boy, he would admit him, and then ask the parents what they could pay.  This was not a rarity.  The academy's treasures and bookkeepers have never been able to establish a figure for expectable tuition money for an approaching year.  He has over a hundred boys there now whose parents have been told to "pay what you can."
