|Mommy consoling me after the very |
breed-challenged tech told me what a
pretty lab I am.
Secondly, I am NOT a Lab!! Not there's anything wrong with labs. They are very nice. In fact, I have a cousin who is a lab of the yellow variety, and she is very nice. Jozie never gets grumpy at me like certain shelties I know...not to name names...a-Winstin-hem. But, nice or no, I am NOT a lab!
Mommy has always wanted a great dane, and after lots of research to make sure I would be a good fit for the family, she finally got me for her <insert age> birthday. Well, we are both getting very peeved with people thinking I'm a boring ole' black lab. (Again, very nice, but just not me.)
Mommy posted my puppy pics on FB, and got comments of what a beautiful lab I am. I went for a stroll up the street, and all the neighbors exclaimed over what WONDERFUL pets labs make. But the final straw was when I went in to the vet man's to get my first shots, and even the techs thought I was a lab! When Mommy explained that I was actually a black Dane, they just said, "Oh, I guess I can kinda see it now." Humph! Maybe you need to learn your breeds lady. Go back to school; flip through one of the dog magazines sitting on the table; something! 'Cause I am all Dane, and I can prove it!
I prefer stuffies to tennis balls.
My knees stick up over my back when I lay on my tummy.
I can actually chill out long enough to lay on my tummy AND enjoy a stuffie.
I have a very long back and neck, and I look just a little too skinny even though I eat like a horse.
So, while I guess I can understand that people just see what they expect to see, I hope I have made it clear that:
I AM NOT A LAB!!
Thank you for listening to my rant. Puppy Love!
