Somewhere in the back of my mind I remember something about my grandmother Chapman having an armadillo shell sewing kit ( or was it a purse?). Something about the tail being attached to the mouth to form a handle. Sorry, but this story gets worse--
As we endeavor to have an "in/out dog," we are tested by this little creature. He was a perfect man's best friend up until around 4:00 pm today. Then he went outside for whatever and came back with a complete armadillo armor. While I rescued the armor and got it ready for garbage pickup ( can't toss it into the woods, since we would have to start all over again with Inspector Beagle), Hub gave Flip his shower. My hub said our dog just sat down and enjoyed every moment of the shower. No shaking, pulling away, or cutting out for an escape. He was also calm and willing to be towel dried.
Do I see a pattern here?
