This will only make sense if you know my puppy.

We’ve never known what breed of dog Declan is. The shelter said Lab/Hound, which just means they have no idea. At his first appointment, the vet said they thought he might be Lab/SharPei, because of all the wrinkles. (He had six necks at that point.) At his next appointment, the other vet in the practice suggested Lab/Chow, and since then we’ve heard everything from Jack Russell to chipmunk to goldfish.

We’ve even gone so far as to think about getting his DNA tested. He’s just a really odd looking mutt – skinny, sleek, high arch in his back legs, stocky and muscular deep barrel chest, powerful, extremely short black fur on his body, long tangly fur on his ears, spots on his tongue, and tiny specks of white on his chest. Goofy looking dog.

But I just figured it out. Declan’s not a dog at all. He’s a Muppet. A full-blooded, classic, Jim Henson Muppet.

    This one is really going to need video – it’s all about the quality of his movement. He does the whole wide open mouth grin thing like Animal, and you really have to see what he does when he’s shaking off after a bath…

    Anyway, the point is, this requires video, which is going to take me a while. 🙂
