They really do!
While we were at an Aquarium, a little girl was watching Hubbie play with Brown Sugar. She had a puzzled look on her face when she asked Hubbie if Brown Sugar was his daughter. Hubbie replied yes and the girls face became even more puzzled. Then she stated "But she doesn't look like you!"
Hmmmm.....is it the black skin that gave it away?
Then, the other day I was visiting our next door neighbor and she retold a funny story that involved her nephew and Lil' Cowboy. Lil' Cowboy was outside playing with my neighbor's little boy and with her nephew. When it was time for the nephew to go home he complained that it wasn't fair that Lil' Cowboy (dressed appropriately with bandana, cowboy boots, and cowboy hat )got to stay and play while he had to go home. The nephew's mom informed him that we had adopted Lil' Cowboy and so he now lived next door to his cousin. Nephew sat and thought about this for a few minutes and then declared "Why did they adopt a cowboy?"
Hmmmmm again....the cowboy gave it away this time rather then the black skin!
