Sleeping Dragons




 "Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus"



 Just in case your school Latin is a bit rusty I'll translate for you.  "Never tickle a sleeping dragon."  It's the Hogwarts motto.  It seemed the perfect caption for one of my favorite photos of Rico.  He's often a back sleeper.  I never tickle the sleeping dragon, but I do often sneak over, kneel down and gently kiss that little pink belly of his.  He is the sweetest dog I've ever known.  He has an odor to him, his own very distinct smell, sort of like puppy breath but better.  You will only "get this" if you're a dog person.  Otherwise, you will think me insane.  If you are interested in learning more about Havana Silk Dogs follow the link.  If you get to the page and click on the photo gallery link, Rico looks exactly like the sixth photo down and centered.  I think that dog is a puppy and hasn't grown out his long coat yet.  I keep Rico in a puppy cut.  I have neither the time, inclination or hands to be messing with the long coat.  Also, it's just not my thing.  I think the short coat is so much cuter.  When I walk Rico, everyone always wants to pet him.  His fur, well in Havanese circle talk you aren't allowed to say fur" sometimes.  A lot of afficionadoes prefer the term hair because of it's texture.  It's very fine, soft and silky but non-shedding and hypo allergenic.  Touching Rico's short coat is like what it must feel like to touch a cloud.

Other than blathering on about the sleeping cloud dragon, there is not much else to report.  Husband is busy assembling two Ikea pieces we purchased while in Orlando on the weekend.  More on that once he has finished.
