Isn’t it amazing how two animals of the same breed and from the same parents can be so different?
Take Lola. She LOVES to be naked. Julius sees it as a violation of all things macho and canine – the core values he stands (and pees) for. Yesterday they were trimmed low low low (to the noyaz as a Caymanian would say). Ready for the Summer heat and to combat the insect infestation that comes with rainy season.
Take this morning’s walk…
Lola is all smiles and ready to go show off her haircut…
But Juju is like “MAMA WHYYYYYYY!!! ALL THE OTHER DOGS ARE GONNA LAUGH AT MEEEEEE!!!!!”
Lola prances along like it’s a catwalk… “See mama? See how the haircut makes me look like I’m smiling? Isn’t that funny? Cuz dog’s don’t smile right?”
She dances and pounces, chases other dogs and pulls to the end of her leash. “Mama try this angle! What about this one?! Aren’t I just too cute?!” (Julius – ” Expeditionist Brat”)
But not so my mortified Julius. He is determined to turn his back to me until I give in and take him inside to hide his shame. I’m lucky I got a shot of his face!
But turning your back has other disadvantages… and leaves nothing to the imagination.
