I know, I know, you must be getting tired of these look-alikes, but mama really couldn’t resist THIS one.
A Papillon (butterfly), see below, and mixed with who knows what, but that little devil is deception personified. Mama said, “Oh, you cute little adorable thing, oh, you little mignonne doggy” and the doggy’s tale wagged and she looked as if she were going to roll over but that feisty little creature bared her teeth at papa and mama and starting barking like a Doberman!!! You can’t tell a doggy from its silly little grin, that’s for sure. Grrrrrrr was all mama got and serves her right. “She’s a great watchdog”, her owner said, too late. You don’t want to explain losing your finger to a PAPILLON!
I mean, does this look like a doggy you can goo-goo and ga-ga over? Of course she does! Oh yeah? Just don’t put your hand anywhere near this monster.
Oh, yeah, right. Look nonchalant as if you are an innocent little creature. You wouldn’t fool ME, you little devil doggy.
On a lighter note, just for kitties. Here is our local fish market getting ready for Bastille Day on the 14th:
I am drooling all over my computer! And the prices are great, too. Evidently there are still a few fish in the sea, thank heaven.
Mama brought home wild salmon and poached it. I mean she didn’t STEAL it, haha, she cooked it in a broth of wine, water, carrot, celery and onion and made a rice salad and sautéed Pimientos de Padron, little sweet peppers from Spain cooked until charred and then sprinkled with salt.
More drooling. Have to go take my bath…
