Yeah, I know they may not be as popular as a Care Bear, but they are definitely more realistic. I mean, when's the last time you saw a pink bear with a rainbow on it's tummy in the wild? I'm guessing almost never. Unless, of course, your cider has aged a bit much.
I brushed the dog this evening. What you can't see is that this pile is about 12 inches deep, as well. I've got enough here to construct a second dog, I think. I'd consider getting a herd and spinning yarn for hats if you wouldn't smell like a wet dog every time it rained.
