Does Lava look like me?



The other day our neighbour who has lots of cats called down to master.

She threw him a Reader's Digest. When she was reading it she came across this story about a US marine who took a little puppy out of Iraq.

It was taken from his book "From Baghdad, with love: a marine, the war and a dog named Lava" by Jay Kopelman and Melinda Roth. I guess lots of my dogpals in America will probably know about this story.

Nice cat woman had saved the magazine and bookmarked the story for us because she thought the dog looked like me.



I think he has the same colouring, but his face is slightly different.

When he was a puppy he was very dark. I wonder if I was dark?


I think we will have a poll. Does Lava look like me?

Mistress wants to add the marine does not look like master. So we don't need a poll on that one.

Frasier said...

I think you are way cuter than lava !

Kapp pack said...

You do like sort of alike but you are certainly more handsome. My mom said that book was really good. She got it for Christmas and read it this summer.

That pup is nice lookin but not nearly as gorgeous or handsome as you, my darling Pippadog. I too was much darker as a puppy, so bets are that you were too. But you turned out soooo handsome!
Kisses,

How about that - that dog does looks similar to you Pippa, but I think you are bigger & maybe longer coat & I think a slightly longer/pointier face, but all in all pretty darn close.

It's all about the pose. If your master assumed the same position as that marine, I think he'd look almost identical! Lava does look a lot like you ... like he could be your brother.

Not to worry about the band, Pippa. Every rock and roll star needs a strong man by her side. AS soon as I can swim that ocean -- although now I have to get Wally and Stan to swim it too, and maybe Ernest, if he becomes the manager. Oh boy. All those short legs ... I think we might have to get a canoe.

I love the way the last poll title gets foreshorted to:

"I have a longer..."

*snort*

wally said...

I think you do look a bit alike though your eyes are much cooler and your head a bit larger (big heads=good).

Thanks for stopping by to give some love to Buko. Poor guy.

Bama said...

Mikki & I think there is a similarity, and would love to see you standing side by side, or at least side by side pics, but being included in your list of many grrrlfriends, of course we can tell that you are by far the more handsome "twin".
Manykisses,
Bama & the RHP
