Lil' Funny Girl: "Auntie, how come Jazz and Co-Co sniff each other's butts?"
Me: (Thinking how am I going to answer this one) " Well, um, you see it's um, how a, it's how dogs say good morning and good-bye to each other."
Lil' Funny Girl: "Oh, is that how Jazz and Co-Co are polite and show good manners in the morning and when they say good-bye?"
Me: Yes, it's polite dog manners.
Later that day when I pick Lil' Funny Girl up from pre-school.
Me: 'Hi Lil Funny Girl, did you have a good day today, and did you remember to be polite, and to mind your manners?"
Lil' Funny Girl: "Yep, but when I saw Ms. Gayle this morning, I didn't sniff her butt, I just said, Good Morning Ms. Gayle."
