I’m Back

Ignore her innocent look: It was all Claire's fault.
Dear Gentle Readers and Kind Fans,

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I’ve had to lay off the writing of the blog for the last couple of weeks.

Some people have complained that, now that I’m running The Strategic Planning Group, I don’t have time for my regular blog.

Au contraire. SPG had nothing to do with my forced absence from the blogosphere.

The reason I was out? Personal stuff . . . mostly having to do with girlfriends and bitches. Literal bitches: My dog Claire has had cancer. I’ll post about her over the weekend.

But I’m back—and will be posting regularly for the foreseeable future.

Thanks for your patience.



  1. Sorry to hear about Claire. Good to see you back, both here and in SPG.

  2. Glad you're back, Gonzalo and am looking forward to your writing when life slows down a bit for you. Praying that Claire makes a full recovery to good health.

  3. That's a beautiful dog, hope she gets well soon.

  4. Was wondering what had happened to you! My hopes for speedy, thorough healing for Claire, and that life gets on a more even keel for you.

  5. Woof woof woof woof!

    (Claire, best wishes for a speedy recovery!)

  6. Is that a Doberman Shepard or a German Pincer? My dog looks just like her. Very good dogs

  7. Sad news. Hope the puppy gets better.

    Gonzalo, hope Claire gets well soon. We're on our third Golden, the first two having succumbed to cancer (endemic to the breed, I hear). Life without a pet is unfulfilled.

  9. Espero que se mejore tu perrita hermosa!
