Abuela and her Pets part 3

You’re thinking there’s no end to this lady’s pets, and you would be right. I’m only writing about her dogs this SOL Maybe another year I’ll write about her birds!

After Oso el original was followed by Oso el tonto (silly, ridiculous, naughty), who sadly didn’t have a happy ending, my abuelita thought that maybe she should move on from Labradors.

Her next dog was yappy Pomeranian. He was super affectionate and she adored this dog. She played one of her word games with his name. She named him Leo because of his orange coloring around his face, reminded her of a lion, although the rest of him was mostly white. Anyway, in English Leo is pronounced with a long(ish) “e”. But in Spanish that pronunciation goes with the word “lio”. which pretty much means trouble or a mess. So she would say “Leo es un lio.” She would giggle at herself, because most people didn’t get the joke. I would just shake my head.

“jaja abuelita, si tienes un Leo” (haha grandma, yep you’ve got trouble).
