Good-ville is the name given to the town of Fairhaven by the boys of the "hood" in New Bedford. Compared to the city kids, Fairhaven-ites are right out of the movie Pleasant-ville.
Every night I meet my neighbor for a long walk with our dogs. He has one that looks just like boo boo, and I have two hunting dogs that my wife has taken out the hunt by spoiling them so much.
My neighbor recently quit smoking and Wednesday he was admitted to hospital with a collapsed lung. Last night a noise in my dining room got me up to witness one of my dogs having a stroke. (the white one). They are both in the hospital and receiving good care. The dog Riley is 11, the neighbor Brandon is 23. This morning on the walk there was a dog and a friend conspicuously absent. It was kind of sad, but there "was" less shit to pick up.
