When I went to the doggy parlour this morning, I had no problem. When I came out, however, and looked in the mirror, well – I just couldn’t believe my eyes! And it raised the question - am I a dog, or am I a lion?
Well, I have a mane, so I must be a lion. But my tail isn’t quite like that of a lion (oops - maybe that’s why I’m booked in at the parlour again tomorrow!), so I must be a dog. But that guy with the camera looks quite juicy and edible, and I haven’t barked at him, so probably I’m a lion. But I’m in the streets of a suburb, and though this is Africa, it means I’m most probably a dog. However, I’ve got the look, so I must be a lion. But if I was a lion, I definitely wouldn’t have let my owners shave me like this, especially in winter time (what were they thinking!!), so I am almost certainly a dog. Oh - I’ve just lifted my leg, so - proof positive – I am a dog! I think.
With a hot head and a cold body – someone’s gonna pay for this!
Silly Tuesday submission - for the rest of the posts, take a look here.
