Water Woofs

More shots from Maine. Drippy dogs, swimming dogs, surfing dogs! Wish it had been me.

Pet-Shaming — It’s My Turn

  Remember Sid, from the original Toy Story, a toy’s worst nightmare? In the film, Sid barbecues toys on the grill, straps Buzz Lightyear to a rocket and creates an army of mutant toys including Baby Face, a one-eyed male baby doll head staked on a spider-like body with pincers made from an Erector set. Well, I’ve done my best…

Downward Dog and Canine Calisthenics

One of my owners hates exercise. After two battles (so far successful) with a life-threatening illness, she found a personal trainer to help her fend off a recurrence. I wanted to do my share, as you can see. Alas, my attempt to increase the resistance for her ab exercises, was not appreciated. Not as reluctant are…

Frat Dog: The 25 Worst Dogs You Met in College

Buzzfeed has compiled a series of  images, The 25 Worst Dogs You Went to College With, that my owners found very, very funny. You can see them at: The images are too highbrow for me; I barely finished puppy kindergarten! Still, I did my best to channel a few frat types. Hope you enjoy them.

Dog Jokes Illustrated

My dog saw you naked. She says your birthday suit needs ironing.

Mad About the Traxx!

                Loaded with a couple of biscuits.                     Captured by me.                           Oops! I dropped it.                       Determination….

Politics/Shmolitics: A Dog’s Eye View

I don’t worry much about affairs of state; affairs of steak are of much greater interest to me. But I do have an opinion on one issue in the upcoming Presidential race — pet transport.  I, for one, would not want to ride on top of a car like Mitt Romney’s dog Seamus often did…
