Quallian is a puppy


This week Abc is bought to you by the letter Q


I'm full of flu, blargh, and it's soooooooooooooo boring that I've decided to cheer myself up with an image of a very cute (and slightly mad) puppy who I took for a walkies along both beaches. I was going for Queens Pier and an explanation of how the pier came across it's name, but I'm much rather console myself with a doggie image. So where does the Q come in doggie or puppy and no, the young whipper snappers name does not begin with a Q. Confusing eh? It's back to the Manx lanugage again. Quallian is Manx for puppy and to be puppyish is quailianagh, of which this cutie definitely is. Also fast too, swift of flight and fascinated by seagulls, who are learning to flee faster than this quallian.


Short and sweet, I'm all snotty. For more Q's here

Flu is all over the island. Thanks for the new word. I should know these as Manx born.

Awww... I hope you will be feeling better soon. I learned another new word yet again today. I didn't know there were so many Q words until today.

Very cute use of your language, and the puppie is a cutie. Hope your feeling better soon.

Any excuse to show a dog photo. Brilliant shadow. Not sure when I'll use the Manx word but give it ago.

Is the dog confused by his own shadow?

Wonderful light and texture!

But ... I thought you said you'd had nothing but rain these past dozen days ... ah, of course. You're ill and delving into your file. -:)

Reader Wil said...

You are so blessed that you can avail yourself of the rich Manx language which provides you with the necessary words.
I wish you a speedy recovery! The flu is a nasty disease. Your puppy is adorable!
