This viral video could be my dog ... but it's not

My dog is special, but not in the way you think. OK, maybe she’s that too. She’s cute and funny and silly and odd. Very odd. She’s a mixed-breed rescue pup. We know she’s part Labrador, part Dalmation, part Collie, and part whole-lotta-other-stuff. But it doesn’t matter to us.

This video looks just like her, and this is something she would do. 

Actually, our puppy has pulled this same stunt … more than once. It's sort of a comical metaphor for speaking softly and carrying a big stick (although she seldom speaks softly). Or maybe it's a matter of biting off more than one can chew. Certainly, the pup doesn't get the short end of the stick.

Hey, at least she's not an old stick-in-the-mud. (See? I can stick up for her, if it's a sticking point.)

OK, that's enough of that.

It’s not her in the photo or the video here. It’s someone else’s black Labrador or Lab Mix puppy. But it’s still delightful, and something is definitely amiss. Maybe that’s why this video from Kyoot Animals went viral. That's nothing to shake a stick at.

Gotta watch – just to see if the puppy sticks with it – so to speak.
