Across the Generational Divide



The suburban dog plays many roles, not the least of which is to entertain her adoring humans. Pixie was recently tasked to play debutante in a silly game amongst friends. Adorned with my grandmother's pearls, she assumed a regal, sphinx-like stance for the requisite photo.

Of note, this is the first decent picture we have of her awake. Typically she is in constant motion and therefore difficult to pixellate. Her other gear is asleep. Ever wonder how many photos of a sleeping dog constitute too many? I think I know the answer.

Yet wearing the pearls seemed to imbue her with a sense of solemnity and tradition, as, we all know, pearls are wont to do.

I'm pretty sure she's the first dog to wear that strand.
My grandmother would be so proud.

Dogs in pearls is the best innovation in digital photography since, well, ever.

The iniquity of putting your grandmother's pearls on a dog makes me swell with envy.

I can only aspire to such irreverence.

LMAO

She is looking at you like "woman, you best not be thinkin' you'll be gettin' these gems back anytime soon" if you ask me.

Classy lady, that one. ;-)

Great job on the photography! Usually their eyes get all wonky and weird, but you had just the right angle. She does look like she knows she's something special here.
