my haze-headed friend, you.

"any thrillingly-dead thing" indeed.
A dog truly 'lives in the moment' while we pay psychTrickRats a fortune to have the same suggested.

Aquirers of the golden retriever breed should forget dark clothes, and be ready to live in a constant avalanche of shed fur, despite daily brushing and vacuuming.

Yes, I think it was Jeffrey Masson who suggested (as an ex psychtrickrat/scholar) we'd be better off enjoying the therapy of dogs.
The dark clothes thing is one reason why I prefer black labs, given that that I'm melburnian.
(the shed fur is the same as it is, surprisingly, with heelers)
