My daughter's white Maltese, embarrassingly named "Snuggles," just turned one. Sorry we didn't really clean her up for her birthday pictures (click to enlarge)
Update, in which I am chastised by my daughter: I quote from my email this morning,
Why do you always have to talk about snuggles name??????? You say how
embarrassing it is and people laugh. Good for you, you make people laugh all
the time. It is funny to everyone but me. How do you think I feel,
with people laughing at me for naming snuggs that name ??? bad
OK, sorry hon. Snuggles is actually a perfect name for this dog, who loves nothing more than to just sit in your lap. Yes, Darwin, cuteness is a survival trait. And Snuggles is the only other mammal in my household who will go running 3 miles with me, even when it is over 100 degrees out, and despite the fact she has a fur coat and the shortest legs by several orders of magnitude. And, of course, beware to all intruders who run into this formidable home defense unit.
