Canine SuperlativesPublished January 30, 2008
Remember “senior superlatives” from high school? “Most likely to succeed” and all of that crap? (Can you guess who is still bitter about the yearbook committee getting rid of the “best smile” category post-voting, after she’d already clinched the title?) Anyway, my new clients, Italian Greyhounds Apollo and Gianna earned their superlatives during our lesson this morning. “Most likely to Move While being Photographed”: These two were so anti-pose that they nearly did me in. It wasn’t that they were afraid of my camera; they just didn’t want to let me photograph them. None of my tricks worked. And I was desperate to capture their gorgeousness! I did manage to get one good shot: They look a bit aloof in that photo, but that wasn’t the case at all. Superlative number two: “Most Outgoing Italian Greyhounds. Ever.” I was expecting them to be skittish about me -- not to be “breedist”, but I’ve met more than a few nervous Italian Greyhounds -- but they couldn’t have been more welcoming. Like, up on my lap and kissing me on the mouth welcoming. I loved it! Oh, and how about one more superlative? “Most Expensive Chew Toy Pickers”: Ouch!
