Special Birthday Approaching

by Anne Bennett on August 7, 2012

Whitman, I know you’re just a pup, but can you guess whose 100th birthday is coming up next week? She’s no longer with us, but she was a very famous and beloved person!

“Is it Scooby Doo?”

No, Whit, Scooby isn’t 100 years old. And he isn’t a person either. Oh, and he’s not a girl.

“Is it Rin Tin Tin?”

Nope. Another non-human. And another male.

“It’s a yucky girl?

Wait, Grandma, don’t tell me. I know, I know, I know! It’s Lassie! I love Lassie. She saved Timmy when he fell down the well. That’s it, isn’t it, Grandma?”

Sorry, Whitman.  You’ve got to think outside your species.  I’ll tell you what. I’ll give you a big clue tomorrow and then if you can’t guess, I’ll tell you.

“OK, Grandma, I’ll try not to think of dogs. (Is it Yogi Bear?)”

Hi Anne– Whitman has the look of the dog on YouTube, tortured by food. You’ve seen it I’m sure, but damn it’s funny.
