A Ball, a Beach, a Dog - Panama!

For Dog Blog Friday: There's a reason we often call him Nigel Nuts. (That's not Nigel's Nuts--he's neutered.)

What happened to Nigel's tail?

I heard his tail vanished in a magic trick gone dreadfully wrong!

While it's good to see tessitura is feeling well enough to make jokes, the real story is this:

We were told that when Nigel was born his tail had a kink in it (not sure if it was Ray or Dave--only kidding). The breeder--he is from show stock--thought the tail would get caught on things and cause more trouble so they docked his tail. That made him ineligible for shows, which meant he got to be a pet. And so we even got him at a discount.

Oh, I meant Nigel is from show stock. Not his breeder.

shouldn't that be "a ball, a beach, a dog - odahcaeballaba!" I can tell you've never had to program a Palindrome checker...

So Nigel is an AKC greyhound? Never worked a day in his life huh? ;>) What's Mookie have to say about that?

Mookie is an AKC greyhound, too, actually. Oh, and they both do work--begging for treats.

Hmmm...both AKC. So that means they're like Republicans of the greyhound world or something, right?

Hey! that's not fair. Non-working folks can be good lefties too, you know. Do you make that comment about other breeds?
