Here at the Doglet Propulsion Laboratories™, we're celebrating the birthday of our muse, the Wünderbunnydoglet, Nuggles von Doglophone. 16 years for her is like 80 for us, and this from a breed whose life-expectancy is 13-15 years. The day after her 14th birthday, she was run over by a car. She hates when I make her wear outfits, but this one was a pastel Rocky Horror finale fantasy for me, so I made her wear it, anyhoo. You always hurt the ones you love. Well, she's put me through it too, bitch that she is, so payback is fair play at this point. I joke that I'll have her hide turned into a little hair hot water bottle so she can continue to function as my personal mini-heater, but don't let that fool you - I'm crazy about this crazy dog. She is a merry, spirited and intrepid creature. She is absolutely fearless and has a degree of toughness that excels even her abundant cuteness. I aspire to be like my dog. I aspire to be worthy of her.
Happy birthday, bun-bun!
