A doggie tale...

I have to take a moment to talk about that bit on the back end of Praline. File under jaunty.

Like the flag on a bicycle, that thing is, bobbing side to side.
It seems to be some sort of doggie barometer. Impossibly cute, this little tail is a wonder all its own. When she is asleep, the tail is soft and malleable like a wet noodle. As she awakens, it draws upward, pulling into a gentle arc pointing back toward her head. Grab her favorite squeak toy and send her to fetch it, and you'll see it pull taut into an almost a perfect semi-circle, tail-tip arcing toward her spine.

Yup, she's an engineering marvel, my doggie is. She's a glorious thing.
Praline is a whole new world of wonders and discoveries and she makes me happy every day of my life.

She is absolutely the cure for what ails me. The mere thought of her little tail is enough to make my spirits soar. Long may she wave.

Well now...if she's only stop eating cat poo, she'd be absolutely perfect. LOL!! Any resolution to that problem yet?

To quote myself:

It's the exclamation point of her existence!

I'm so glad you two found each other.

orange neck - Well, the cat poo has only happened a couple times in these 2 months since I got her. I suspect the cat doesn't come here every day, just once in a while. Still, ugh. Yeah, she needs something to make her less perfect, I spose!

attila tm - Yup, puppy tails are teh ossum

christina - Brilliantly stated, darling! :) THanks, we're having a grand time together.

Yep, she's a cutey, but I've posted one to compete with her today...just coincidental my dear.
