Another one of those multi-meaning english words Giu. "A clutch" may be found in a transmission, but "to clutch" is to embrace something . . . such as her little shi-tzu lap-dog.

Steve...you know I am...I love to have good inteligent clean joking with friends..

Good clean inteligent humour is for me, by far, much better than average "normal" humour...

That's why I like the Monthy Python, and can't stand Mencia, or other excuses for commedians...

Mop Dog.

Blue, just kidding.
My Mother-in-law has a Shi-tzu and I tease her and call him the Mop Dog.
Just attach a broom handle and you have a good mop.

Yep - mopdog is right, and that's her "summer cut". The hair's so long now, it really does make her look like a mop. Lifted up what I thought was her ear the other day and saw her bung-hole.
