Of course I had to say, "Et two, Brutus?"
Hmmh... I'd suggest either "Ate two, Brutus?" or "TV QVOQVE, BRVTVS?"
Well in the King's English (does anyone speak that any more?) the past tense of the verb "eat" is "et" instead of the American "ate". :geek:
I saw it stated that "ate" is pronounced like "et" in (original) English but never have seen it written this way so far. A quick search in the web didn't bring up that spelling either. :? Though "et" is quite popular with Latin origin. Just for curiosity, can you give any solid evidences supporting your claim? I must admit I know only Queen's English for decades...

You are quite correct. For the first time in my life ( :lol: ) I have made a mistake. I spelled it as it was pronounced even though the King (King Alfonso, I think) spelled it ate.

The important point we're all missing is that Brutus probably slobbered all over the remaining cracker.

Thanks Tom, this is my first dog. I decided on a Sheltie after doing a few of those "which breed is right for you" websites. Every one had a Sheltie in the top 3. Plus I remember a friend when I was a teenager who had one. Lovely little dogs. So far so good, she's almost 7 months old now and "almost" fully toilet trained. Now that it's cooler I can leave her outside longer during the day. Less risk of snake bite.

Here's a low resolution photo:

The high resolution version of this (4000x6000 pixels, taken with a DSLR) is here.

Edit: I might re-take those when there's more ambient light so I can close down the aperture a bit and get a better depth of field.

Is the shift key stuck below the surface of the keyboard?

I wonder if anyone as a model with a correct "EXIT" marking.
Mine is also deformed as well.
