so I can remember it, and everyone can enjoy. The best paragraph of Kirsten Bakis's Lives of the Monster Dogs.

"'I was going along beside Prinzi's skirt, you know, a very long, big skirt, very noisy, so fascinating for a puppy. And her coat! She had such a wonderful coat, trimmed with fur. It was ermine. I wanted to chew on it, but of course I knew--so I used to just brush up against it with my muzzle, and just open my mouth a little bit, so that perhaps the fur would graze the edge of my tongue, and I could imagine exactly what it would be like to chew on it.'"
