Dear Lauri,
I had a dream the other night that there was this ugly black dog in our house.  It was attacking my children, my dog, and me.  The strange part is, even though he seemed very offensive and was biting us, it was not graphic (none of us were bleeding), but I could actually feel the dog biting me.

Dear Lauri,

When I came back home he was emaciated and his skin was shredded and falling off his bones. I felt so horrible! I tried to feed him and clean him up. I woke up freaking out.
