Your dog must really be worth it.
BTW, that breakfast looks VERY delicious. Where is it?

After 15 years' living together, of course my dog is worth it!

The breakfast was at cafe "Dubim"("The Bears"). The picture doesn't even show the two items delivered after and the item I consumed before, I took it: a glass of fresh-squeezed juice, a substantial bowl of chopped cucumber&tomato salad, and a cappuccino. It was really good.
