Shelties with their coats so true! This girl looked grumpy as I passed, so I did not think she would have appreciated me with my camera pointed at her. It would have been a great shot.
I found internet gold with Animal Planet's Dogs 101. When it's unwind time here in my apartment, I sit back with a white russian and more and relearn all of the breeds. I have one fun fact about white russians and one about dog breeds. Kahlua is a rip off here in Czech, and so one day I decided to make my own, so that I may drink a caucasian from time to time. Whoopsie, because I made three empty fernet bottles worth of Kahlua, and so now I have consumed more creamy cocktails than I would have liked. I caved and splurged on some bourbon yesterday (also a rip off in CZ), so that I can enjoy a more foreign drink than what I've gotten used to over here. Blah blah blah.
And the second fun fact has to do with dog breeds! I mentioned that I have to relearn (not LEARN) the dog breeds, and that is because when I was in the second grade, I decided that I was no longer scared of dogs. In addition to the many other pets that my family caved and bought me, I thought it might be nice to have a puppy as well. My dear mama je'e was all, "Uh uh we are not home enough to raise a dog rarrrrr rarrrrr growl hiss hiss." Most of the time, with a little work, I could get whatever I wanted from my parents, something for which I am oh so proud. I then got myself a book with information on every breed of dog, and memorized the damned thing. I thought that this would impress them and show that I was responsible because doing my chores and taking care of the animals already in our home wouldn't have worked. I got no dog, at least not for about five years after learning all that there is to know about all of the breeds. To this day, I still know about 95% of the breeds, but it's the hounds the various pointers that I forget. There are too many. I retain this information in hopes that one day, while attending pub trivia somewhere, that there will be a category on dog breeds. I would like that, a category on pokemon, and one on The Brady Bunch. That would be splendid.
So, there you go with two fun facts about my life with kahlua and puppies.
