When I was in third grade we bought an Afghan Hound puppy. She was adorable--black, little and sweet.

Of course, the grooming of an Afghan Hound is an impossible task, so we always kept ours cut short. And Afghan Hounds are dumb as a box of rocks--it took her three years to learn house training.

I thought they were called Afghan Hounds because they look kind of like blankets. The only afghans I had ever heard of were the ones my grandmother crocheted. So that was the first time I learned about Afghanistan.

But still, whenever I hear someone refer to the people of Afghanistan as "Afghans," I think of blankets.

Could everyone please say, "Afghani?"
