Our dog, Terrapin, is visiting the school this morning. We don't bring him in very often as he's highly distracting, as you can see, but we don't have a vehicle on island right now and we're all leaving after lunch for our Lego trip, so we brought him with us to avoid the walk back to our house. And no, we did not dock his ears...Mr. Finn got him when he was in The Gambia for the Peace Corps. The tribe in Africa docks the ears to prevent infection from bugs during the rainy season. Terrapin is a Basenji, so he can't bark, but as Johnny will attest...he can seriously whine when he wants to be petted...which is like...all the time. He doesn't love the school because there is no couch.
