Dogs, like urine, feces, pigs and NON-MUSLIMS are considred "unclean" in Islam, which is probably why the black be-hijabbed check-out clerk at Offiice Depot today was very careful not to touch my hand when giving change or handing me the receipt.
This little fellow's name is Dancer and he's only 4 inches tall and weighs just 18 ounces.
If I'd had a gun with me this afternoon I would have shot a dog who was trying to kill my Yorkie. http://gobsmackedagain.blogspot.com/2007/04/old-lady-with-bright-orange-lipstick.html
Looks quite fierce for such a small dog. Sweet though.
There's a children's story called "A dog so small". Must check it out again, but I think the dog was the same size as one in a picture, which is probably no bigger than that one.
