Day by day, Marley the Dog becomes more and more habituated to life in the back yard on Hill Street.  Sadie still growls and snaps, especially at food time, but as this photo to the right shows, they are beginning to have cuddlesome, canine bonding moments.  They played keep away with an old towel in the back yard this afternoon, too.  Sadie put on her gruff, snarling bully act, but the Marley was unimpressed as he flew about, attacking the end of the towel that Sadie dragged and flailed in a spirited game of keep-away.

The verdict so far on Marley: No regrets!
