I already told you I love Greek yoghurt. It is creamy and very healthy. Humans and canines should eat more of it! What I did not tell you is that it is also good for your looks. When you use it as a beauty product, I mean. It is especially good for your skin and your eye lashes. And, as everybody knows, long luxuriant eye lashes are essential for pretty girls. Like me. That is why I do not only eat yoghurt, but I also apply it to my eye lashes.
I let it work for a while and than I take it of, by licking it. That is an advantage of being a canine, humans can’t do this. They need a cotton pad. Anyhow, it works wonders. You should try it!
It happened again, this morning: someone commented to M about me being too skinny. These people act as if they ask a question (‘Oooh, your dog is beautiful but why is she so skinny?’) but actually they mean: ‘Your dog is too skinny, you should give her more food!’ You can’t fool dogs, you know: no matter how nice the words you choose, we can smell what you really think.
I never object to more food, of course. But seriously, these people start to annoy me very much. Because I am not too skinny, I am just right. This is the body shape that suits me. I know from experience, because if I do eat a lot I grow a nice little soft belly, but my ribs still stick out.
I also don’t like these people commenting, because M gets upset about it. This is something that puzzles me about humans: the way they open themselves up to other humans, even if they don’t know them. If a dog I don’t know barks to me in the street I am a no good Greek stray, I just bark back he is an asshole. I don’t care about that and I don’t think about it anymore (other than my friend Fred, but hey, he is a sensitive whippet). But if a total stranger tells M she is neglecting me, she is sad. Even if it is not true and the people telling her this are always too fat themselves, as are their dogs. Truly! Next time someone tells her this, I will bite them. And growl: ‘Yes I am hungry and you look fat and juicy so I’ll eat you and your obese dog!’ That will teach them and make M very happy.
Recently I was on a different beach. There were no little crabs, alas. But there was something else and it was awesome: mud!
At first I did not know what happened when I ran to fetch the stick. My feet were slipping , black stuff was tickling between my toes. Then I discovered the endless possibilities of this new ground. I could make slidings, very long ones! Sorry, there are no pictures of the slidings, I am a very fast dog, you know. But here is one picture of me, resting in this delicious mud:
And this is how I looked afterwards. Mud is very good for your skin, did you know that? And it smells great, too. I feel beautiful now.
