Today is my puppy’s first birthday! To celebrate, the word of the day is: macushla.
Macushla is an Irish-English noun that means ‘darling.’
First recorded in 1885–90, macushla is from Irish mo chuisle – literally, “my pulse.”
Miss Bailey, my puppy, is dearly loved. She’s playful, mischievous, and protective. She loves going for car rides, and always wants to be close to my daughter. I’m so happy my family adopted a ‘pandemic puppy’ last year. She has really brought a lot of joy and laughter into our lives.
Best of all, she gets my butt outside! Taking her for a walk is always an adventure.
