It’s a terrier’s world, we just live in it

From the New York Times

From “trouble at the dog show” a monologue by David Letterman:

A yorkie was pistol whipped by a rat.

A Jack Russell had to pull out because of tax problems.

I haven’t seen this many roll over and play dead at Madison Square Gardens since the Knicks played.

dog years

Biden’s birthday is Thursday, but Obama surprised his No.2 after their weekly lunch Wednesday at the transition office in Chicago. According to staff, Obama presented Biden – a Delaware senator with decades of foreign policy experience – with a dozen cupcakes decorated with candles and teased, “You’re twelve years old!” Staff reported that Biden, ever astute in the art of politics, laughed at his boss’s joke. He responded: “Maybe in Dog Years.”

(A dog is looking at a series of greeting cards under the Birthday category and they are all sectioned off in dog years, ie: 7 years, 14 years, 21 years, etc.)

Congratulations to the Mutt

with one comment

With respect to the dog, this is a major issue. I think it’s generated more interest on our website than just about anything. We have — we have two criteria that have to be reconciled. One is that Malia is allergic, so it has to be hypo-allergenic. There are a number of breeds that are hypo-allergenic. On the other hand, our preference would be to get a shelter dog. But obviously, a lot of shelter dogs are mutts, like me.” President-elect Barack Obama, quoted in the New York Times.

A dog star comes down to earth

“The story is about Bolt, a white German Shepherd who has lived all his life on the set of a TV show in which he portrays a superhero dog, and as a result thinks that his superpowers are real. Later, he gets accidentally separated from the studio. He then meets a female cat named Mittens and a hamster named Rhino who never leaves his exercise ball, and eventually he discovers that all of his powers are fake.” Wikipedia

Dogs sell

From The New York Times:
A dog runs alongside a little girl on the front cover of Kate Atkinson’s “When Will There Be Good News?” The same picture of the same dog also appears on the book’s spine. Why does it crop up twice? Possibly because dogs sell books lately.
