The Little Guy

Yesterday, Tap took a tumble, and came up yelping and favoring his back left leg.  To the veterinarian we went.  She couldn't find anything just palpating everything, and his limp had lessened, so she concluded that there wasn't a serious injury, but gave him some pain medicine just in case.

So he's fine.  What went on more than the exam was the chorus of, "He's so cute!"s that rang from the staff, doctors, and other patients' parents.  He is, without a doubt.

 
Dr. Jones, who saw him, asked, "What kind of dog is he?"  I had been counting on her telling me!
She said, "Some kind of terrier?"  The tech said, "Long-haired chihuahua?  Dachshund?"  I said, "He stands like a hound, with his tail up over his back.  And his coloring is a little like an Afghan."

We couldn't decide.  If I can get more, and better, photos of him, maybe one of you will be able to help.
