Um, Euka my love? What’s in your mouth now? I ask.
Muthin’, says Euka. Why?
Because it looks like you’re storing marshmallows in there, I say. Or auditioning for Brando’s role in The Dogfather.
Nope, says Euka. I got muthin’. See?
Ok then, I say. Look me in the eye and say Chubby Bunny.
Shubby . . . says Euka. Alwight, alwright! graaack [spit]
Ah, blades of slobbered grass fall upon her front paws. Not the worst thing she’s rolled around in that adorable maw of hers. But still.
I love how Ella’s in the background looking on with that I’m-the-Good-Girl expression.
Aw, c’mon, Ella says. You’re not fooling anyone here with that innocent dog act.
Yeah, I know, says Euka. [wink]
