Palaki

Glyph of the word 'palaki'.

palaki

  • (n.) dog

A tiku ipe palaki ie mali oi nea!
“That dog is standing on her puppy!”

Notes: There were two dog statues at the entrance to the Japanese gardens, and I took a picture of both, so I figured this was as good a time as any to introduce the word for “dog”. Here’s the picture:

Another mighty dog statue.

And, indeed, that dog is standing on an itty bitty puppy! But I guess she’s doing that to protect it. (I mean, I hope.)

The Kamakawi keep dogs, in a sense (cats, too). It’s more like in a Kamakawi village, there will be any number of dogs and cats, and people will feed them, and they’ll all kind of wander around. (See, I like the sound of that.)

Hoping Roy Williams and Miles Austin have huge games tomorrow—and that the Cowboys still lose!
