But Olive has got some kind of super bionic tongue that no matter how I tried to avoid it, I end up with it darting into my mouth.
It is as horrible as it sounds.
And yet, when she looks at me with her lovely brown eyes, and her big foxy tail starts to wag, I can't resist picking her up for a cuddle.
Which will usually involve her tongue.
So it's my fault really.
But she's so fluffy and cute!
It's a catch 22.
One that I will continue to fall onto the side of "ewww" because she is so darling and has some sort of super cuteness powers that make me love her even when she's chewed up my hairbrush and flip flops and licks a bit too much!
