Here comes Boo.  Just look at that fine retriever.  See him retrieve his ball through the waves. . .     

 Wait, maybe it’s a spaniel. . .

 No!  It’s a portuguese water dog.   Of course!  Here’s a little excerpt from the AKC breed history:

“the Portuguese Water Dog was bred to accompany fisherman on their boats. An exceptional swimmer and diver, the breed retrieved broken nets, dove for fish, carried messages between boats and to shore, and guarded the boat for his master in foreign ports.”

He’s getting closer.  .  .

wait a just a second.  That’s no water dog!

No, it couldn’t be.  .  .


a Shih-tzu?!?!

  Muddy, rowdy, ball hoggin, frito-pawed Boo is a Shih-tzu?

from the AKC breed page:

  “As the sole purpose of the Shih Tzu is companion and house pet, he should be lively, alert, friendly and trusting towards all. He requires minimal exercise, but his long, luxurious coat needs daily brushing and maintenance.”

Um.  Maybe somebody should talk to Boo about this?   Don’t look at me – I’m not telling him.
