A dogmanteau

From Chris Waigl on Facebook, this entertaining composition:


[Corrected from an earlier version, with thanks to Chris W.]

A complex portmanteau of labrador (retriever) + abracadabra (the magician’s incantation), with the first more or less wrapped around the second. And, as Chris pointed out, also a double dactyl,

S W W / S W W

John Lawler commented, “Pretty alabrate setup.”

(As with most of these compositions, I have no idea who originally created it.)

[Addendum: obviously, the dogs are not labs, but (Siberian) huskies — probably, as Chris W. suggests to me, because of the enormous number of husky images available on the net. But the joke would be better with actual labs.]
