On a walk today with Luke and Joey, a kindly older lady asked if the cute dog with the skinny face was a deer.
I was tempted to say ‘why, yes ma’am, it’s a rescue deer. We saved it from the clutches of a mountain lion near Telluride and he’s been the best pet ever.’
Stifling that urge, I said…’no, it’s a kangaroo and that’s why his name is Joey.’
She smiled knowingly and we went our separate ways.
