"My jaw gets heavy, that's all."
Imagine you're a 21-day-old Italian Spinone puppy. Yes, you're fuzzy, wrinkly and so snow-white your eyelids and mouth-flaps are a delectable pink. Nevertheless, you'd love to get your mitts on a hat or sunglasses. Big, tall humans love babies of any species in adult accessories. But nobody will give you one! The only course of action? A slow, lazy yawn. Take that, big, tall humans! May your hearts soften into puddles of love goo.
