Internet Users turn Addicts Sarah Smith If you're an Internet user, you know who you are.

My Dog Anonymous Over the past several months, my family and I noticed that Molly, our 12-year-old dog, had progressively become more torpid about the house and outside. At first, we thought something was wrong. We believed that she had come down with some sort of sickness. After a while, we came to our senses and deduced that it was probably just old age.
