Hey, It’s Jet Here.
I finally have a subject for my Scooby Doo Academy Powers of Observation case study. Our assignment over holiday break for Repetitive Behavior Class required us to observe the same activity for a week to two weeks and dictate the facts and conclusions. For a while, I was stymied; too many choices!
Then I noticed, on all of our empty-the-tank and solid business walks, J.J. would only do the deeds when she was on the grass to the left of Mom. At first I wondered if my tendency to walk on the right (because Mom holds my leash in her stronger hand) might have influenced the “new girl.” I asked Mom to check during the few times when J.J. goes potty without me. Mom confirmed, nothing happens unless J.J. inhabits the left side.
Mom said Oprah Winfrey, Presidents Clinton and Obama, Ben Franklin, Albert Einstein and tons more famous humans favor their left limb. In sports, commentators often call lefties Southpaws, using a K9 reference. So, it’s fitting to call J.J. a Southpaw. Longtime blog readers know how much Mom and I love basketball. Well, our very own Miami Heat forward, Chris Bosh is a Southpaw.
Me, I’m ambidextrous, quite coordinated in fact. I empty the tank on either side and will do my solid business on either side of the street. I’m just a flexible kind of guy. I’ll need a few more days to derive conclusions for the case study; right now, I need an after breakfast, after constitutional, after wrestling with the Southpaw nap.
Another great and observant day.
