The two bigger dogs yesterday were probably whispering to each other: "Hey, Fido, check out the ears on that cutie."
"I see them, Rover. A dog with ears that are shaped like a bat are a real turn-on. Let's go over and try out a pick-up line on that dog."
"OK, but wait a minute, Fido. We are in Tamarindo, and this place is full of foreigners. Do you think that cute dog speaks English or Spanish?"
"Rover, with ears like that, who cares about conversation?"
