I look like a rabbit - so what?

June 3 /09

OK, so I'm letting Mama have her fun. At my expense. Go ahead, Mama, embarrass me. That's alright. I'll let it go just this once.

Since the "hilarious" picture is now posted for all the world to see - and snicker at, no doubt - let me explain.

Papa had just let me lick the bottom of his yogurt bowl and it left me with a couple of well-defined white splotches on my mouth.

So I'm sitting there all puffed up and proud that I'd just copped some yogurt, and Mama starts shrieking with laughter.

"Look - rabbit teeth. He's got rabbit teeth!! Ha, ha, ha!!" Then Papa got hysterical too. More laughter, snickering and snorting. Tears were rolling down their cheeks.

Ok, so what's the big deal?

'Course, I couldn't see the splotches so I just sat there wondering what the heck was so funny. Rabbit teeth? My teeth were exactly the same as always, far as I could tell. Then Mama bounded up the stairs to get her camera.

Just before she snapped this picture, she took a napkin and touched up the spots a bit, "so they'll show up better."

And now we have this:

OK, if you can stop laughing long enough to tell me why our parents love it when we look silly, I'd really appreciate it. Frankly, I don't see the humour in robbing a dog of his dignity, do you? I mean, I like making them laugh but this is ridiculous.

Yes, the humans are always trying to show us off in silly ways Chef. You look like your usual handsome self to me. Of course Ambrose always looks silly but I guess he can't help it,

Your friend,

Oh Chef (giggle) - I don't know if I can go to Scooby's wedding with you anymore!! I thought I had a date with a handsome Boxer dog, not a cute widdle wabbit!!!!!

OK - just kidding but you do look very cute! And I think it is one of our jobs as dogs - aside from guiding the blind and helping to round up sheep and all that - to provide entertainment for humans! (sigh) - don't worry, I've been there! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

I don't blame them for laughing, but you are still adorable. Africa makes me laugh even when she is being naughty. We were wondering if you wouldn't mind adding us to your blog list. We would be so flattered if you would consider it. Thank you!
