But wait, that’s not an otter at all in the picture! True, but first go read this about the hairy-nosed otter. See the name of this lonesome otter? Well, that name is the exact same as the name of the pup in the picture, except for one added “R”. That’s right, the puppy is my little mini-dachshund Darra, name which in Gaelic means “little great one”.

So thanks to my mother-in-law, I find out that one of my favorite animal types not only is doing well in Cambodia, if is a little lonely, but also has the exact same name as my own dog. Small world.
