Pseudomonas!

Posted by laurie on January 14, 2011

Do you take off your beagles’ collars at night? We do. And I’m just slightly embarrassed to say that we refer to this as “putting on their PJs.”

Here’s an even better one. Since Phillip does just about all of the dog walking, I try to help out by putting their harnesses and tracking collars on (and off). Phillip tells me when by announcing, “Suit ’em up!” As is not uncommon around here, the pronunciation disintegrated into the medical vernacular and now the order has become, “Psuedomonas!” Pseudomonas is “a genus of gamma proteobacteria, belonging to the larger family of pseudomonads.” So the next time you hear the word “Pseudomonas!” don’t think of bacteria, but instead remember to harness up your beagles.
