Evil Demon Haunts Los Osos

It was hideous beyond belief, a creature so horrible it sent cold chills down my spine.  Its blazing eye and grinning, rictus-like smile turned small children to stone.  And it was in my house!  Right there on the dog beds!

Those teeth!  Were they dentures? Little wax inserts kids used at Halloween to look like Vampires? Whaaattt?

Oh, wait.  It was just Molly Malone, smiling while sleeping in the quite common greyhound “cockroach” position.  Shameless wench.

Dear, sweet Molly.  But, really.  Those teeth?

Hilarious Ann!!!!!!! I know the look - many years ago I had a Borzoi who earned the name "Grinning Goon" for a look similar to Molly's!

She looks pretty blissed out despite the crazed look!

Grinning Goon. Pretty funny. Zuri, when she's racing around, goes all wide eyed and gets this really weird pull back on her lips, tongue running out and the white teeth exposed and gleaming, all of which makes her look positively looney!

Ah, silly dogs.

Sounds looney for sure! Now that reminds me of the time we were babysitting a Groenendael Belgian Shepherd. A sweetheart of a dog. Pitch black, pointy eared, he was both gorgeous and goofy at about 18 months old. Anyway, he got along great with our dog Elvis. They were both outside in the back yard. One moonless night at about 3:00am, there was a commotion - probably over a raccoon sighting. So I opened the curtain to see. All that was visible was a double row of gleaming, perfectly white teeth passing by the window. (NOT our dog!) I don't think Chester's teeth were radioactive or anything, but that is all of him that showed in the darkness. Just the teeth. A never to be forgotten moment!
