He even has the green feet to prove it. For those of you who don't have grass to mow, allow me to explain. For some reason, the cut grass will turn your feet green. Just like getting a grass stain from falling down and sliding in the grass (which happens when an untrained dog who weighs more than you pulls you off your feet and drags you across the yard to make new friends...not that I know from personal experience...since Remi would never do such a thing to me...), it's the same concept. So when I got home from PetSmart last Saturday, I found this:
And I immediately thought "oh, it's too bad that St. Patrick's Day is over!" Then I went and got my camera and took a few photos.
Yep, all four feet are now green.
Of course, it doesn't keep him from doing anything important. He just looks kind of silly to me.
I do love this dog. But for those of you who have suggested that perhaps I might keep him, all I can say is no, No, and NO! Did that sound too emphatic? I just want to be clear. I am very eager for someone else to discover the joy and the trauma that Ziggy will bring to their life. I have too many other deaf dogs to help, and Noelle already took my only available "forever dog" spot. So as much as I appreciate Ziggy for constantly providing me with blog material, I will be very happy once he finds his forever home.
