We recently read a story about Narcissus from Greek mythology. For those of you who do not know, he was a hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia who was known for being incredibly handsome. He was the son of a river god and was fairly conceited. One day he saw his own reflection in a pool of water and fell madly in love with it! That vanity proved to be his undoing.
We bring this up because the adorably enamored Doxie puppy on the next page appears to have a bit of Narcissus in him – but in a totally sweet way. He sees his image in a mirror and – whoa! – what a hunk of burning love! LOL!
While we think this pup is more than likely wanting to make friends rather than loving his own image, we also feel there may be parallel to the Greek God in that he just cannot help giving himself a little kiss! It is too cute and hilarious!
Go on over and take a look!
