This morning, Jack asks me, "Mom, how do they tell girl dogs and boy dogs apart?"
Awkward silence from me. It's only 7am, after all. Do I really need to have this conversation now?
I decide to take the cop out route: "Well, the same way you tell human girls and boys apart."
Then Jack's face lights up, "Oh! They give the girl dogs girl names and the boy dogs boy names, right?"
Sigh. "Yes, dear. That's right."
