|We mammals are all bi-laterally asymmetrical, each in our own special way.|
Rocky is no different than the rest of us. His right eyelashes are black; his left, white. When you look at Rocky’s face in this and other photos, do you have a tendency to look more at one than the other eye? Is it the background? What if the brindle more or less surrounded his left eye?
I regret that I did not begin to measure Rocky as soon as he joined our family. By measuring his ear-to-tail length over time, I would have been better able to predict his final size. Under near-optimal conditions, the trajectory of mammalian growth can be described and predicted. If I’d measured him, I’d know where he is in time (now) on his little trajectory.
Rocky is a barreled-chested bi-laterally asymmetrical mutt.
