Last night the husband and I took our walk, and decided to take Sophie along with us. We haven’t been doing that as often the past two weeks, mostly because of the heat or timing – if we go late, it’s kind of a hassle. And it’s been in the 90s. Not ideal weather for a long-haired dog. My mom was working late, though, and I promised to check on Sophie at the very least.
Sophie was in rare form. No pulling, not sniffing every. single. blade of grass along the way, and was just being a great dog. We walked a little further through a field nearby, and turned around. As we were walking back down one of the streets, there was a group of 7 kids ahead and one of the younger girls said “that dog ugly.” (Note the poor grammar. That annoyed me almost as much as the insult.)
What part of this dog is ugly?
We walked on (after someone asked “does that dog bite?” and then five of the 7 kids proceeded to pet her.) The whole way home we kept asking each other how someone could think she’s ugly? The only thing we could come up with is the kid was kind of a jerk, and just wanted to hear herself speak.
Today someone found my blog through a Google search of “sophie jeans blower” (whatever that means.) They came up with this image:
I’m wondering if that person was completely put off when they came up with Sophie’s face.
