Meet the Family Part 3




Kirin is an Akita and is 4 years old, the same age as Millie Mae. He's quite a fine fellow, and you can't walk him without being practically mobbed by people saying how good looking he is. Weighing in at 125 pounds, Kirin looks ferocious, but is as docile as your favorite teddy bear. We have to shave his double coat due to the heat in Miami. He loves squeaky toys, but they don't last long with him...in fact, given to him, the average life expectancy of the squeaky mechanism in a chew toy is about 2 minutes.. but he loves them long after the squeaker is gone. Kirin is always 2 steps behind Millie Mae who is constantly running after every little thing...Kirin's her back-up in case anything is really amiss. They go together like peas and carrots...and the eggs.

at least his toys don't make any noise after the first couple of minutes! He is very pretty. Almost as good looking as Tyvel

yes - he's also a philosopher, a Gilbert and Sullivan aficionado and every once in a while he will hide a ball we can't find - but that doesn't make him a magician - but he is into classical music - your dad loves him!!!!

Kirin also told me that Ruddigore, Act I, Mad Margaret sings a snatch of a song, "The cat and the dog and the little puppee...". The music for this does not appear in the Vocal Score, but Robert Watson has transcribed the version given in Martyn Green's "A Treasury of Gilbert and Sullivan".

I am sorry I asked! He is too smart for me. I will just go eat my kibble....
