Emma is an amalgam of grace and turdishness (don’t bother looking that one up). She has incredibly long legs, and she has to put them somewhere. Consequently, she either gathers them beneath her, languishes like some movie starlet, or just makes due (actually, this is one of her favored positions — butt-on-something, front legs straight). Her quest for comfort often makes her the poor deformed doggie poster child. There doesn’t seem to be much of an in-between with her.
But she smiles, and makes us smile (and no, that’s not retouched!).
