|"I have a stump!" - Mr Woof.|
Can I tell you an embarrassing secret? Promise you won't tell anyone?
When I was a puppy, before I met my humans, someone stole my tail. I have a stump. So when I say "Licks and Tail Wags" at the end of my posts, I really mean "Licks and Stump Wags."
Well, you can imagine how awful it is for a dog to go through life without his most expressive appendage. When I want to show I'm happy, I can't give a good hearty tail wag, I can only give a little stump wiggle.
My humans have always been very nice about it and told me I have a cute stump. But they also say they'd like to meet the person who did this horrible thing to me and cut off a piece of them.
I can't remember it happening, I was only a little puppy at the time, and I sometimes wonder if maybe I was a very, very bad dog and deserved this horrible treatment. Mum tells me that can't be true, that she knows I always try my best to be a good dog, and anyway no puppy could ever be naughty enough to deserve something so terrible.
Anyway, my stump and I are off to go explore the yard, and then maybe have a very long nap. I hope you have a happy day.
