Nice dogs and nice landscaping too

John said...

Beautiful black German Sherherd. Best dogs on earth.

AJ Lynch said...

Nice lawn! The kind that says "lay down and take a nap".

knox said...

LOL, Trooper!

mcg said...

Seems like a good a thread as any to share the two funniest videos I've seen on YouTube since... well, today.

Entirely safe for work. Not particularly safe for your sanity.

Is that dog supposed to show respect to our president?

TMink said...

Benjamin Franklin said that beer was a sign that God was good and wanted us to be happy. Franklin was a man of obvious brilliance, but dogs are the same blessing as far as I am concerned.

Makes me want to get a dog and go have a beer.

Dogs are our the best connection back to nature, even better than ponys.

Rob said...

This post, for all intents and purposes by Meade, has lead me to de-lurk and attempt a dialogue concerning your future plans.

I am a constant reader, not a commenter, and I think we all know you have always liked the commenters best, it's just a fact I've learned to live with, but regardless you must take the well-being of all your, uh, "dependants" into account.

So, like, where do we fit in? Is this still "Althouse"? Or is it now "Althouse & Meade"? What happens if, heaven forbid, things go south? Do the commenters get to stay with you and the rest of us have to go with Meade? I hardly know this man, and to be honest he looks a little shady. No offense, Meade. God, I'm so confused.

Anyway, you should just be aware that the decisions you make today and in the days to come will reverberate through the lives of many people and their therapists, possibly until the heat death of the universe.

AJ Lynch said...

Troop;

The dogs would make for a good blogginheads.

Meade said...

Holly (L) and Mickey (R).

I'm not going to show them they got frontpaged at Althouse. As it is now, they're willing to work for food and health insurance benefits on week-to-week contracts.

I'd like to keep it that way.

Lem said...

I've wondered the same Rob. You r not alone.

kalmia said...

They look noble and loyal. And the brown one has a cute white sock.

Lem said...

Are we going to have an Althouse is like Meade tag ;)

Bissage said...

Meade is not the Yoko Ono of Althouse.

Leave Meade ALOOOOONE!!1!!!!!!!

Lem said...

Is Meade the Joe Biden of Althousia?

HelenParr said...

So Meade tried to slip her a Mickey.

Lem said...

the brown one

LOL .. Bush 41 right?

Leland said...

As the line of others, I see the photo is by Meade, the post title is by Meade, but Althouse gets the byline?

Meade said...

"...Althouse gets the byline"

Yeah. She rules, doesn't she?

zedzded said...

Best dogs ever, except of course the two that live at my house.

rhhardin said...

The lawns of Versailles were cut by scythe (2008)

John said...

"Best dogs ever, except of course the two that live at my house"

Everyone's dog is the best dog ever in their world.

Meade said...

Come to think of it... this just might be her way of making sure I'm not goofing off while I'm supposed to be on the job.

I'd better get back to work.

bearbee said...

Near this spot
Are deposited the Remains of one
Who possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferocity,
And all the Virtues of Man without his Vices.
This Praise, which would be unmeaning Flattery
If inscribed over human ashes,
Is but a just tribute to the Memory of
BOATSWAIN, a DOG
Who was born at Newfoundland, May, 1803,
And died at Newstead, Nov 18th, 1808.


.........Lord Byron

Lem said...

You know the Times said that Althouse had a whip..

Poor Meade ;)

paul a'barge said...

You like dogs? I got your dog right here.

Charlie said...

If I wanted to read Meade's blog, I would. But I don't! Let him start his own...........

Lem said...

Restless Althousians wandering who's in charge..

In walks Al Haig.

Trooper: Mickey is a babe magnet - no question. But Holly is one who is really sweet on Althouse.

(Oops -- back to work!)

You should. I do have two dogs and drink lots of beer. Thank you.

Maybe, but it looks apparently obvious who is going to catch. :D j/k.

jayne_cobb said...

Sorry, but beagles are where it's at.

Ahhhh. Indian Hill. The Magic Mountain of Ohio.

Lem said...

Meade is going to be in charge of the obituaries ;)

MadisonMan said...

Sure they got frontpaged -- but no (dog?) tags.

David said...

Althouse is back in the land of silk and funny.

Seven Machos said...

The young Native American goes to the Chief's tepee. "How do the babies in the tribe get their names?" he asks.

"Well, it's very simple," says the Chief. "Whatever is happening at the moment of birth, that is the name we give. Thus, your father is named Flying Eagle because a bald eagle soared overhead when he was born. And your sister is named Flowing River, because she was born during a great flood. Does that answer your question, Two Dogs Fucking?"

AJ Lynch said...

Guy goes to the shrink and says "I had a dream I was a wigwam". Shrink says "hmmm come back in a week and tell me if you have another dream".

Guy goes back in a week and says "I dreamed I was a teepee". The shrink says "hmmmm very interesting. I think it means you are two tents!"

MadisonMan said...

The next week he goes back and says he dreamt he was a bicycle.

"That means your too tired!"

AJ Lynch said...

MM:

As you can tell, I enjoy corny jokes so good one there with the too tired.

AJ Lynch said...

I suspect Trooper could come up with about 50 on his own.

Pogo said...

If only Werner Herzog had brought these two swell canines, that damned penguin would've been corralled right back into the fold like he ought to have been.

I'll bet they be a good solution to piracy, too.

Adorable bear.

AlgonquinS said...

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, "Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?"

The Lone Ranger replies, "I see millions of stars."

"What that tell you?" asked Tonto.

The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, "Astronomically
speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will
have a beautiful day tomorrow. What's it tell you, Tonto?"

Tonto is silent for a moment, then says, "Kemo Sabe, you dumber then
buffalo shit. Someone has stolen tent."

Revenant said...

Nice dogs and nice landscaping too

Heh! That was similar to my reaction. My response was "eh, those seem like ok dogs I guess. But dang, nice lawn!"

Maxine Weiss said...

"2 exhausting encumbrances"

AJ Lynch said...

Good one Algonquin!

Meade said...

Aww... even Maxine loves them!

Joan said...

If the lawn belongs to me, the old saw "the grass is always greener" is always, always true. My lawn envy has been a companion of many years. Truly, that is a lawn to be envied.

(The dogs look nice, but I'm a cat person.)

nina said...

Joan -- I'm so opposite in this! I prefer dogs to lawns. I like grass that has stuff growing in it: English daisies, clover, etc etc. But dogs -- oh, those look like mighty fine beasts. I'm jealous.

Lem said...

This is strange.. Maxine is being civil.. There must be something wrong with her.

Could it be the animals?

Didn't you all read the article in the Times? It says Meade manages an estate outside of Cincinnati.

That beautiful lawn is Meade's handiwork!

zedzded said...

Reread what Maxine wrote. I think the only kind thing she wrote was "2". The rest was mean spirited.

I do not like lawns. I have been filling the lawn portion of my yard with trees which kill the lawn. If I have to spend more than 20 minutes mowing grass then my life is way out of balance. I hope to reduce that time by half. Am getting some great trees, too.

Lem said...

Reread what Maxine wrote. I think the only kind thing she wrote was "2". The rest was mean spirited.

I was trying to be sarcastic.

Mr. Forward said...

What kind of dog was right for Ann?

The one with a leash attached to her man.

zedzded said...

My mistake.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

The dogs are so cute. They are sitting there like:

Ok Dad, we're sitting here, just like you asked, whatcha want us to do next. Huh huh huh huh huh????

So eager to please. Good doggie!!

joewxman said...

Well by co-incidence )or perhaps not) my daughter announced to us tonight that she is engaged. And then my dog (english springer) actually went to take a nip out of him (such a good boy!)

it must be in the air!

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Rumor has it Obama wants to impose a cap and trade system for people who have lawns like that.

Joan said...

Nina: I like grass that has stuff growing in it: English daisies, clover, etc etc.

If crabgrass counts, you would love my lawn, Nina. The only reason I have any lawn at all is to give us someplace to play catch or croquet. If it were up to me it would all be fruit, flowers, or veggies. Next up on my backyard wishlist: pomegranate.

They do look like very good dogs, sweetly attentive and eager.

Chip Ahoy said...

This picture of these two wonderful dogs, Holly and Mickey, fill my heart with joy for the whole loyal and faithful canid family.

Ann Althouse said...

Actually, neither dog is owned by Meade. So don't picture me becoming a dog owner. You can borrow dogs, you know. Try it! It's fun.

Wow, that's really harsh! Such shameless dogsploitation--does PETA know about this?

Actually, neither dog is owned by Meade

Color me disappointed.

quickwatson said...

Neither Althouse nor Meade owns a dog? These beauties belong on the "Meade Estate?"

Meade said...

rhhardin said...
Adorable bear.

Althouse would like to give that bear a bear hug. I guarantee it.

amba said...

Mickey for the ears?

Beautiful dog. Velvet to the touch.
