Rocco the Rasta Dog

Papillon means "butterfly" in French. The fringed ears are supposed to resemble a butterfly. But this long hair requires frequent brushing to prevent tangling.

Like a lot of kids with long hair, I (Rocco) don’t always let my mommy brush it. Or if I do, I pull away when she finds a little knot. And sometimes mommy forgets to brush me. She is very busy.

Left untouched for even a few days could mean BIG trouble, particularly in the problem zone below and behind my ears.

Last night when I was relaxing on mommy’s lap, she discovered it--a baby dreadlock dangling from my ear. I had tried to hide it from her, but she was too quick.

She gasped. And then yelled to daddy to bring her THE COMB. I hate the comb.

The comb just tickles me (Brownie). But remember we're not allowed to say the word "hate".

You just said it too. And that's because your hair is too short to get a knot.

Daddy took this picture. Can you see the light tan offender peeking out from under my right ear?
