1. Coral doesn't actually like football. When the hubby starts watching football, she leaves the room shortly thereafter. If we call her back, she'll hang out for a few minutes, and leave again. Just not a fan. Or maybe, the hubby screams at the tv a little too much, and my incredibly noise-sensitive pup runs away from the madness.
2. Coral's left ear is a centimeter longer than her right ear. I measured. I was sitting behind her and noticed her left ear was longer. I had never noticed that before. So like any other insane individual, I measured her ears. She has a tendency to hold her ears differently (one is out more, or back more than the other), so I just didn't notice.

Duke recently passed his therapy dog test, and we're signed up to volunteer at a local elementary school, where kids are encouraged to read by reading to dogs. He was great with the kids today, but we were in a busy area, so he didn't quite pay as much attention as I would have liked. But the kiddos still loved him. And after they read to the dogs, each kid got a bookmark and a sticker of the dog they read to. Each time they read to another dog, they get a new sticker to add to their bookmark.
