Readers at The Atlantic and The Washington Note are different pots of readers -- but as we approach 2012, I'm going to mix it up a bit. 

These three pups -- Buddy on the far left, Annie in the middle, and Oakley the Amazing Weimaraner (google him) -- have a very large following at TWN and folks at this Atlantic Voices page will see more of them in 2012. 

I love dogs and most other pets -- well, except snakes.  Had a garter snake named Chernenko once -- and things got ugly.

Oakley has his back turned towards 2011 in my view and seems eager to get on with a new year.

Me too.
