It was D week in David’s Kindergarten class this week, so I wasn’t surprised when this paper came home in David’s backpack on Tuesday.
D is for dog. It makes sense, although did I mention that David doesn’t really like dogs? We do not have a dog and the only dog that David sees on a regular basis is my sister’s dog, Winston.
David and Winston have a mutual agreement to ignore each other, which seems to work for them. But, Winston is most probably a lab, husky mix and looks nothing like the dog in David's picture.
I didn’t really give David’s drawing much thought, until I was sorting through the papers in his backpack on Wednesday and I saw this picture.
David drew the same dog, two days in a row. It has the same curly brown and black hair, the same orange tongue, the same green collar. The only substantive difference is that the removable tale, originally held on with a brass brad, seems to have been removed.
Where did David get the idea of this particular dog that really most closely resembles a Portuguese Water Dog? I think he had his weeks confused. “D” week was last week. Presidents’ Day is next week. David simply drew the President’s dog.
