Daily Dose of Cute

I have a huuuuuuuuuuge scratch on my arm, and, the other night, after noticing it for the first time, Zelda helpfully licked and bit it (gently but ow), then looked at me like, "All better!"

"I fixed it!"

Naturally, I gave her an abundance of cuddles and told her, "Thanks, Mongrel M.D.! You should have your own medical drama on CBS called Dr. Muttz." She wagged her tail appreciatively and grinned.

I pretend her grody lick-chomps heal my wounds; she pretends to understand my pop culture jokes. It's a fair exchange.
