Don't shoot the puppies, either.
It's happening. The power of love will win in the end, and the submission will never be regretted.
Meade's hopes of keeping that puppy is going down at a 45 degree angle.
Happiness is a warm puppy.
Amazon is pushing a Glenn Reynolds model blender just for puppies.
Speaking of puppy dog cuteness, Hey Girl, It's Paul Ryan.Well I think he's adorable.
Loving a loyal dog is one of the best blessings in life. They re-connect "thinkers" with the good earth and the cycles of life.You love that puppy, Professor. Pictures don't lie.

yashu, that's awesome.
New meaning to the label "Puppy Chow".
I posted a pic of the pup on Facebook about 3 weeks ago, and some of the commenter were asking me if I was trying to something. I looked at it again, here, and realized, "ooops".
The capitalist running dogs at Chief Executive magazine today released their annual ranking of Best & Worst states.Due to the reforms enacted by Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican legislature, Wisconsin rose in the rankings from from 41st in 2010 to 24th in 2011.See entire article here: Best/Worst States for Business 2011"Wisconsin and Louisiana posted the two biggest gains since 2010, with the latter, along with Oklahoma, also showing the biggest gains over the last five years. By proactively reshaping its posture toward business taxation and regulation, Louisiana has been quietly stealing pages from the Texas playbook.By contrast, Illinois has dropped 40 places in five years and is now in a death spiral. Its bond ranking is 49th, ahead of only California. The state may play host to fugitive state senators from nearby Wisconsin and Indiana who avoid voting in their home legislatures, but businesses are heading for the exits."
Cue the predictable responses from garage mahal, Allie, etc.
Damn you, garage! ANOTHER bogus link.
Reminds me of my saying:Without puppy mills, where would we get puppy meal?
"... don't eat the puppies!"-------------Don't show them to Obama!
Damn you, garage! ANOTHER bogus link.?? Works for me. I thought you didn't click on any of my links anyway
garage --I got this, re your link:Sorry, that page was not found.
Obama - Forward
"I thought you didn't click on any of my links anyway"I figured what could be the harm of a puppy picture. Serves me right. My congratulations to you.
CHICAGO area story. She should have contacted the White House for cooking instructions.Woman bites dog, police say"The bulldog finally did bite her back in self-defense," Smith said. "There were no charges against the dog."
Every time Ann picks up a pup, that look gets a little more intense.PS Looks like nice weather up there. They're talking about 85 for tomorrow. For early May, that's a little unreal.
Might want to consider should you have a spare $80 million laying around.
Earlier this week, I had the privilege of attending the funeral of a very good man. The loss was not mine; he was the father of a friend. Worked hard and well at what he did. Volunteered frequently and regularly for nearly twenty years after he retired. Stayed married and faithful to the woman he married over 60 years ago, and raised fine children.He lived a long, full life, so his death is not tragic. Still, he died suddenly, and it is sad for all who had the pleasure of knowing him.We need more men like this, not fewer. Instead, earlier this week, we buried one.
fixed. I hope.
I think this is the link garage meant to use
Apparently, he's not fixed, Garage.
I don't know enough about the circumstances to make a definitive judgment re the Obama admin's treatment of Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng. But from cursory reading about it, I feel sick to my stomach. I feel awful for Guangcheng. Actually feel shame on behalf of my country.
Althouse ponders; "I wonder what goes best with puppy? Red or white? Dry or sweet?"

AA, you should have put one of his ears in your mouth for the photo. People would have gotten it.

Go to the nearest animal shelter and pay them for a dog. Please, think about buying a black mutt dog. And, while your at it, why not get a black cat also. They are the hardest color animal that people want to adopt. Most of them are eventually put to death because of their inability to be adopted.I don't have a dog anymore, since Larry of Star Prairie, a black mutt, but all of my cats, who live in the barn are black. I call them the Obama's. I have no mice. Please think about adopting an animal that nobody wants.
"AA, you should have put one of his ears in your mouth for the photo. People would have gotten it."Perhaps she didn't trust herself.
Altogether now, channel your inner Obama:My fellow Americans,I want mybabybackbabybackbabyback
Please think about adopting an animal that nobody wants.I second this statement by AllenS. There are millions of great dogs and cats waiting to be adopted at local shelters. Don't buy a breed for vanity--mutts tend to be smarter anyway.
Has anyone seen "Bo" recently?
@garage:Heh, I thought the first (bad) link was subtle humor. Second link: still a good-looking pup. Those things happen :)
At the Puppy Dog Cafe we are very tempted to adopt a cute little pup.
Nick, see what you've done, you made me go look at Garage's doggy link. Rockets red glare, doggy porn on Althouse!
Ann - get a rescue. Go to the pound. They will love you just as much as any purebred, and they need your help so much more.
Oh and Garage, get that dog laid so we don't have to see his red rocket!He has a girlfriend! Freda, the big stuffed St Bernard. I think it is. Spaying is mandatory, but I don't feel neutering is. I have my reasons, and I'm probably a heretic because I think neutering puppies [particularly so young many times] isn't ideal. I've had 4 male dogs now and I've never neutered any of them. Something about lopping body parts off animals...ears, tails, etc.
You may vote for him...but this is one puppy he's not snacking on!
"There are millions of great dogs and cats waiting to be adopted at local shelters. "You should be aware that there are also many shelters that are breed specific. In the Los Angeles area, for example, there is a shelter for basset hounds. They have over 100 of them and many volunteers who keep it running. No tax money involved. I got one of my basset hounds from there. He was an angel although handicapped with spinal stenosis. We had him three years before he got too bad to keep going. I still miss him.
If the dog is not used for breeding, it is irresponsible pet ownership not to have a male dog neutered. In addition to the potential behavior problems of an intact male dog, their health is at risk from the significant incidence of testicular cancer. Other than keeping an active breeding animal, there is no reason not to neuter a male dog other than to stoke the vanity and bullshit machismo of its owner.
Irene said...Has anyone seen "Bo" recently?I had the same thought.
Must. Have. One. Mmmm...
Puppies are merely babe magnets. They don't know anything.It's old dogs that you want.
PalladianSorry don't really buy that whole argument. Show me an irresponsible dog and I'll show you an irresponsible owner. At some point you have to be smarter than the dog, and demand obedience. I've witnessed 2 dogs in the last year, by happenstance, that had complications because they were neutered too young. it's highly unnatural to me. Pay a little more and feed them good food, give them lots of attention - that's the sign of a serious owner.
Actually the dog is diminished by neutering and spaying.Those behavior problems are willingness to work, just not taught yet.It's training that's the pound problem - people giving their dogs up when they can't deal with it, instead of getting decent instruction on how to do it.
Ann - get a rescue. Go to the pound. They will love you just as much as any purebred, and they need your help so much more.In my experience, I've never rescued a dog. The dog rescues me.
Being deep into dog rescue for years now, I can't imagine letting a dog breed. I get many emails every single day just from local shelters with photos of cute sweet loving dogs who will be executed in the next 24 hours if I or someone does not immediately come and get them.That is their fate after a few days locked in a cold stinking cement cell terrified and lost. They always have stories attached of how affectionate and loving they are, or how they were found standing with their companion dog who was lying dead next to them on the road. All sizes, ages, and breeds. That's just the ones who caught someone heart enough to get them that extra effort. Most simply follow a path similar to an Auschwitz victim without ever hearing a kind voice or feeling a gentle hand.Thousands every single day, and WE are responsible. We even pay for this running atrocity. Every dog born sends one more to this fate. Adopt a rescue dog.Besides that, they're draining me of cash and time. I'd appreciate it personally.
Any breed can be found purebred or mixed from a rescue. They all network to find what you are looking for. Rescue dogs seem to know somehow what you did for them. They already know what life is like without you, so they love you just for existing. You won't get that from a puppy mill dog.
Those behavior problems are willingness to work, just not taught yetI bet 95% of "behavioral" problems in dogs is lack of exercise and/or not knowing their place in the world. They're just miserable. Ball cures almost everything."Wheresurball!"
Most dogs in shelters are not there due to behavior problems - not their's anyway. Most are lost or relinquished by people who simply didn't love them enough to continue to take care of them or look for them when they finally escaped. Just like with kids, some people should never have them. It happens when people break up, move, lose a job, outgrow them, get sick, or die. Our rescue has adopted out about 4,000 dogs over 9 years. That's not really a lot, but we rarely get dogs with behavior problems that are not anything more than stress from neglect, which goes away very quickly when they are treated with a little love and attention. Rescues avoid dogs with problems. There are so many that you can pick and choose who to save, and if we pick the tough cases, we end up saving fewer.
I thought Bedlington's were white?Terriers, generally can't be off a leash.No rare clumbers in Wisconsin?I have never seen one in Dairyland.Have any of you seen the tanning mom? What a freak.tits.
"It's old dogs that you want."As my current five dwindle down, they will be replaced with senior dogs, with a goal of three total.
"As my current five dwindle down, they will be replaced with senior dogs..."You are an angel. Senior dogs are the hardest to adopt out, and they really break the hearts of rescue people. We've had some for years, and nothing makes us break down like sobbing pussies as much as when one finally finds a home. Thanks for loving us old farts.
What AllenS said.I've always had used dogs - large ones, usually goldens, or labs or some mix including either one of those. They've been dogs that someone could no longer keep due to housing issues, or old age, or something else.Every one has been a joy, like having an older aunt or uncle in the house. They come with their character already developed and the humans have to adapt.When they had to be put down it was the closest thing to losing a beloved close relative. Awful. heartbreaking.One of them was so smart, I swear, if it could have figured out how to hold a pencil it would have balanced my checkbook. The ghost of one of them is still in my house. My wife and I have each caught brief glimpses of it, usually late at night, when it just pokes a cloudy head out from under the piano and then turns away.You need a dog. When you come home for wherever, a walk, a meal and a scratch will set the worst day right again.
Please "don't eat the puppies!"Yes, I can see the Doris Day resemblance.
Well said, Haz. Beautiful.
Dadgumit, OM ruined my line about the Blondie saying Please don't eat Daisy.
I made a Sue flay. I mean a soufflé. Wanna sea Yit? I mean see it?
"Ball cures almost everything."Wheresurball!"This, garage, is some killer insight worth sharing. Well done.On this, we can agree.
Not like President Dogleg, who is constantly either playing one or eating one!

They're just miserable. Ball cures almost everything."Wheresurball!"Our Siberian Husky is a rescue. She was taken away from her previous owners because of ill treatment. She is very sweet she only barks when she wants something. When we first got her she didn't know what a doggie toy was. She will not chew on or fetch anything except her pull rope and he rawhide bone de jure. Oh. And bottle tops on plastic bottles. Once she chews the top off and spits it out she's done.Gitcherbone!Good luck opening day.
Said one angel to another :)
President Dogleg...I'd like to see that catch on.
