It’s All Greek to Me.
Something else that makes me smile and even laugh out loud at myself is our new pup Quattro. For the first month after we got him, I was convinced that even though they said he was a “black lab mix” puppy at the shelter I was just sure he was a Great Dane puppy. Do you follow me here? I said, a GREAT DANE puppy. Do you know what happens to Great Dane puppies? They grow up to be small horses! I’ve calmed down a bit about that whole deal and since then his ears have gone through a few stages. They used to lay down and then for a few weeks they stuck straight out and now, well, now over the last week he has resorted to this look.
Notice only his left ear looks like a lab. We call it the half-lab look so I can’t help walking around the house repeating, “half-lab…half-lab…half-lab…” and then I burst out with a “…HALF-LAB!” that sounds all excited and distraughtlike much like the Aflac duck. Say it out loud, “HALF-LAB” it sounds like Aflac doesn’t it? You know you just said it out loud and you agree with me.
Ok, I’m off to bed after my long, hard day with the Greek Key. phew.
