Sorry to rant but do I look like a banana to you?


Pikture taken by Dad of course!

Hello Everydog & Girl Girl,

Last weekend, my hoomans decided to bring me out for a leisurely walk on Sunday morning. You see, the weather in Singapore has been really strange lately. It can be bright and sunny in the morning, but by noon time, the skies start to get dark and before you can say Oh my DOGness *coupled with a surprised look*, it starts to pour cats & dogs (heh heh..no pun intended).

Anyhoo, I was totally enjoying my walk at the park cos it's been a while since I had a chance to go there. So I met a couple of other dogs...so I barked and growled (I even tried to lunge at them), but I was a good girl. No no, I was just being friendly and did not bite!! It's not my fault if my hoomans don't bring me out as often as I like so I just want to meet as many new friends as possible.

Then along came a family with a little girl who exclaimed really loudly to her parents when they finished admiring my long elegant body "Oh Mummy! Look! It's a BANANA dog! She's as long as a BANANA!" Now, I have been called many things...sausage dog, weiner dog..but seriously? BANANA? Tell me, do I look like one to you?

Signed,

A Very Sad Luckie - I am not a banana.

Were you wearing a bright yellow raincoat? Maybe then you might look like a banana - otherwise you are too brown and fuzzy (and cute) to look like a banana.

We love to EAT bananas so we would never think of you as a banana!!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Luckie?
A banana?? Like you said we are used to hear people calling us many names but... a banana?? Weird!
Don't be sad. You don't look like a banana.
And of course, your Dad took a beautiful picture of you!
Kisses and hugs

mmm no, not in anyway. They should take the child back to school for extra lessons. I don't like children any way, they make too much noise and move too fast.

** trying not to laugh **..
I think that kid needs to get her eyes checked.. or maybe needs to go to a new school cos the one that she is going to is obviously teaching her the wrong things!
Seriously, you don't look anything like a banana to me.. maybe a kiwi?? Ok ok.. sorry onni!

Amber-Mae said...

Banana? I hope that little girl's eyes are okay... Now way you look like a banana! Not any part of you looks like a banana!

Love licks,

Love Clover xo

Hana said...

Luckie, you are not a banana! The correct wording is the banana looks like a dachsie. No wait, that's not right either. I think the girl musta looked like a banana then. But, if you did look like a banana, that would be okay because I like bananas :-)

Amber said...

What a weird girl. You don't look like a banana at all. People always call me a "cat" :(

Stanley said...

Luckie Girl!

No. You don't look anything like a banana. That little girl must have just been trying to be silly. She probably was trying to find something to call you other than weiner dog.

Sheesh. If you WERE a banana, you would be one of the silkiest looking bootiful bananas I have ever seen.

Goober love & smooches,
STanley

pee Ess
Tell your mama & dad to take you out more often. You need an active social life!

You are so pretty Luckie, not at all like a banana. The kids in my neighborhood call my doxie, Lulu, a chi-wienie! She's not any bit chihuahua (or however you spell that).

Lady Kaos said...

MONA AND THE MOMMY! said...

Who cares what that little girl said. We know what a banana looks like & you are so much prettier than any old banana.

Love Mona & the Mommy

The Zoo Crew said...

That is outrageous!! A banana? HRMPH!! I've also been called many things, but never a banana. Perhaps the little girl LOVES bananas and she was insinuating that she loved you ;)

Peace + Paws,

Too cute! You look more like the "fictional" dog on my book cover, Petey, who insists he's real! Loe to trade links.
