Sort of a dog but not a dog (with photo)

Me: I’m home!
Emerson: YAY! I’m so glad you’re home! I missed y-…*sniffsniffsniffsniff* what is that smell? It sort of smells like other dogs. Did you go to the dog bath place WITHOUT ME?

Me: No, I’ve been at the zoo.
Selby: *sniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffSNIIIIIIIFFFFFF* Then why do you smell sort of like dogs? I thought they didn’t allow pets at the zoo! *sniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniff*
Me: They don’t. I was helping the vet and the zookeepers do some stuff with the wolves. Wolves are sort of like dogs. They’re a species of wild canine.
Selby:  *sniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniff*
Emerson: *sniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniff* That explains the kind of doggish smell. Well I’m going to have a nap now.
Me: …
Selby: *sniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniffsniff*
Me: Are you ever going to stop sniffing me?
Selby: *sniffsniffsniffsniffsniff* Eventually. I just don’t want to miss anything! *sniffsniffsniffsniffsniff*
Emerson: Don’t mind her Mama, she just really loves to read.
This picture is my patient, Orion, shortly after he woke up from the anesthetic. Isn’t he pretty?

  1. Wow, Orion is gorgeous. This is such a cute post. I heard once that when dogs sniff other dogs’ pee they are reading their pee-mail.
