Using this word made everyone laugh so hard that, opposable thumbs or not, I had to look it up in the Websters. The information I got was thin (Unlike Pearle, hehehe. That was a “play on words” for those of you who need tellin’.)
svelte (sfelt) adj. Slender, willowy.
Pearle? My Pearle, the pug-like-griff, svelte, slender, willowy??
Now, I am not the catty type (Ha! I’m killin’ myself here!), but you can see from the photo that my girl Pearle has pulled the donuts on the dog couch together and made one bed, just big enough for… you guessed it- Pearle! And these are not small donuts, mind you. Gemmie and I can share one easily. No sharing for that other dog, though. Hmmph!
But, I forgive you Pearle. It may be your fault that you don’t share or play well with others, but the weight thing, well, we’ll blame Joe the master snacker. He just could not resist you when you were at your absolute cutest while begging. Look at those eyes-
Some day you may truly be svelte- but you really do always look good to me. I love you, Pearlie Blue! XXXOOO
