Silly Saturday Award

Guess what's in the lower left corner.
For an Airedale person, possibly for any dog person, it’s an honor to win an award for being silly. Isn’t uninhibited silly one reason for enjoying dogs? Sometimes dogs bring uninhibited embarrassment—nosepoking the parents of your kid’s friends, for instance, when they’ve come to see if your household is safe for their child—but you laugh about it later.

I was thrilled when The Teacher's Pets selected my photo caption for her first Silly Award. The photo was of a dog in a car, yawning. Yawn, car, latte—the connection is a no-brainer for a person from the Coffee Center of the Universe from which espresso has slithered across the world like a many-tentacled alien, even usurping the ancient coffee-houses of Europe. But I digress.

Thank you, Teacher’s Pets, for rewarding a dog’s daily dose of silly.
