Misha and Grisha Play Dress-Up
On their way to the bathtub the other day, our Scottish Terriers Misha and Grisha decided to pose for the camera. I really can’t remember who it was that dressed them up (No, it was not me…), but somebody else was folding their little blankets that we keep in the car, and one thing led to another.
These fleeces are the kind of things that are good for dogs with muddy feet who need to climb into your lap, or for slightly sick doggies with a tummyache who need to throw up somewhere fast. I tell you, those baby blanket fleeces are good.
There was Misha, standing before me (I think he was standing, usually he doesn’t like to sit if someone is wrapping him up, but because he’s so squat anyway, and has short, sturdy legs, it’s really hard to tell…). He was dressed like a Greek grandmother, or make that a Russian babushka, given our family’s uniqueness.
Now, I will just take this opportunity to say that some Scottie lovers feel that we are mistreating our little guys by not naming them Angus or Campbell or Seamus. Whatever. Is every American child named Dick or Jane, I ask you? We have a Russian family and Scottish dogs with Russian names. Deal with it. Be thankful that we outvoted any Italian entries from Benedetto.
So back to the story after that commercial break.
And then there was Grisha. He seemed to be sporting a little country girl look, his blue blankie adding that certain “Je ne sais quoi”. Keep in mind that both are boy dogs, and very manly-men in their own right. (And yes, he was sitting down on the job.)
However, in my opinion, they looked like grandmother and daughter, out for a mushroom-hunting expedition deep in the Russian forest. These are the odd personalities one could come across if you wandered far from your izba.
Granny, what big teeth you have-!
