WasCy’s story

When I get around to changing the avatar photo…

This is Willow, my dorg. (In fact, as far as I know, she’s the only dorg in the world.) She’s a Genuine American Brown Dorg, in case you were wondering. We generally understand each other, although she doesn’t talk much.

The painting usually in my other avatar (when I put it back up), for those who don’t know but want to—and even for those who don’t care at all—is Breezing Up (A Fair Wind), painted in 1876 by one of America’s foremost artists, Winslow Homer. You can read more about the painting and him on Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winslow_Homer ) and a few thousand other places. (The whole painting isn’t shown here – when it’s shown at all, that is.)

Yes. I was CyanoticWasp.

When I was a little kid, my grandfather, who loved making up wild stories pointed to a dog and said “You may think that’s a dog, but you’re wrong. That’s a genuine dorg.” I asked him what the difference between a dog and a dorg was, but he said it was too subtle to tell. For years I’d be with him and point to dogs and say.. “Dog or dorg?” and he’d carefully study the dog and say “Just a dog” or “genuine dorg’. I am embarrassed to admit how old I was before I realized that my grandfather was pulling my leg.

Your bio reminded me of that. Thanks for unwittingly giving me a great memory of my childhood!
