An Unsolicited Observation Regarding Buster
This is your faithful correspondent, Persephone, writing to describe a most troubling phenomenon.
Have you noticed that, in any day's worth of photos, it is always the female subjects who face the camera with decorum and dignity?
When certain members of the opposite gender find themselves in the camera's eye--well, you get the picture!
Note particularly the position of the mouth when we girls pose for our public. It is discretely closed!
Conversely, when His Nibs happens to find himself in front of the lens, fourteen inches of tongue protrude!
Is it in the DNA? We girls just have a natural sense of dignity.
Maybe Bozo the Wonder Dog was dropped on his head early in life. Or maybe, he's the long-lost twin of...
There most certainly appears to be an uncanny resemblance.
Of course, Buster insists that he's smarter. Much smarter.
But smart has nothing to do with an outlandish propensity to extend one's tongue until it reaches the stratosphere!
"Your point?" says Buster. Plainly, he's happy as a clam being just the way he is, tongue extended, and generally goofy. I suppose Bailey and I will have to live with it!
