The Mellow Mutt

It ought to be a laid-back bar name, don’t you think?

But no, it is the new pet in our household. We have acquired the world’s mellowest dog.

Don’t believe it? This dog has so far: moved from the Dumb Friends League to our home… met my cat… been on a walk during which she saw a rabbit… ridden in my car twice… been around takeout food… met sundry people she didn’t know… and been walked past numerous other dogs. Yipping? Growling? Barking? Lunging? Scrabbling? Leaping? Nipping?

NONE.

I call that impressive. Any dog that can see a running rabbit and do no more than tug wistfully on her leash is what I call Mellow Dog Award Winner 2009.
