Unlimited without Shrinkage (or on being a cute dog)

In All About Me, Being Cute, Shelley Widhalm on August 25, 2013 at 11:30 am

I'm all about cuteness quality.

I’m all about cuteness quality.

My cuteness is unlimited (as I pretty much explained in my last blog, “The process vs. the product of being cute”).

In that blog, I left out a few important details, like being cute is both a product of personality and of looking good.
It also is a process of making sure others know the fact.

Otherwise, my quality of cuteness could shrink in my eyes and in the eyes of potential admirers because nobody is noticing.

Think of the tree that falls in the forest and no one is there to listen … if I am not reminded of my cuteness, would I retain my position as CEO of Cuteness?

Good question.

The answer is of course, particularly because I’ve never been in a situation of being told I’m not so cute. In other words, I was wrong, my cuteness can’t shrink.

I’d like to explain. As the CEO of Cuteness, I am the cutest dachshund this side of the Mississippi. This is confirmed by how often I am told that I am cute, pretty, darling and beautiful. Yep, as I take walks, explore the pet stores and hang out at coffee shops, my admirers stop to adore and pet me, gorgeous me.

I know the word “pretty,” as evidenced by how I wag my tail whenever I hear it spoken, communicating to my admirers that I understand the word. I’ve heard it so often, like no!, down and good girl (okay, okay, and bad girl) that it’s become part of my working vocabulary.

As a result, I’ve become a bit addicted to being told that I am cute, plus I act cute by waving my paws when I want to be petted, cocking my head when I’m trying to figure out what humans are saying and turning quick, yelp-filled circles when I get excited.

In conclusion, I want to confirm that I am the CEO of being cute, acting cute and the word “cute.”
