Toldja he's a clown. That's Bingo in the background - probably reading the Federalist Papers.

Bryan C said...

Yes. But what it is ain't exactly clear.

AllieOop said...

Are you dogsitting?

Meade said...

No animals were denied belly rubs in the making of that photo.

Coketown said...

At first I thought the dog's ear was it's nose and the dog was looking up and backward toward the camera. It's an optical illusion! How exciting. TWO optical illusions and it's not even 11:00 MST!

Coketown said...

That's not its ear; it's the rest of him! THREE OPTICAL ILLUSIONS!! This is the post that keeps on giving; unlike the Disney World cancer post, which is the post that keeps on taking.

The youngster is a fabulous perpetual motion machine, as evidenced by his (her?) tail in that picture.

Lem said...

In another life Meade was a lobbyist ;)

lemondog said...

Looks like a big- nosed one-eyed furry twinkie.

yashu said...

Something is happening here, but I don't know what it is.

Who is that dog? Is this where it is? What's mine? Oh my God am I here all alone? Impossible. For what reason? What does this mean?

chickelit said...

The foot off to left looks prehensile? Is it human?

Lem said...

Is something happening here?!

Wow.

chickelit said...

From Lem's link: And the reason why they're doing this is because they want their names out there.

I blame Andy Warhol, in the past.

Chip Ahoy said...

Something's wrong with your camera, the dog's tail came out all blurry.

chickelit said...

That foot needs to be taken out and shod: link

edutcher said...

Looks like it has a TV camera in it.

James Bond's dog?

Now we know what Ann did in her hippie years.

PS I won't say it.

David said...

Looks like a dog with a hot dog bun for a nose. That must test doggie's self control.

If you've ever had Labs you know you have to move all the breakable stuff out of tail reach.

traditionalguy said...

Just remember no climbing on the sofa after swimming in the lake, Mr Bingo.

Did I tell you I love labs?

Michael K said...

I woke up this morning with a cold nose bumping mine and a lot of sniffing of my mustache. Probably something I ate last night.

ricpic said...

I only do what the owner of the naked foot tells me to do, ruff ruff.

Chip Ahoy said...

I decided to change one of my walls into a 3-D wall of carved Egyptian art and I already have the elements.

I have an offering scene. One I carved myself. I own a framed copy and another person owns a framed copy. It is their most significant piece. They have a lot of art, and my replication carries the most weight. Actual weight. Plus the weight of replicated history. It's hung at the central place in their home and so is my copy. So that's the piece.

I also have 24 copies of that unframed and painted to various degrees in various styles of coloring, mostly partial. All varying color fields. Eye outline, splashes, streaks, various breaks, etc.

Originally there were 12 and all the same green interior house paint as the wall so the only thing that showed were the shadows.

And that is so freaking cool. Especially at a distance.

So I think I will take all twenty-four and remount them on matt board so they are all uniform tiles and paint them the same color as the wall and attach them independently as a unit taking up the whole wall.

My art BLAM !

And yet subtle because it's all shadows.

Shadows that change as the light changes.

So what do you think? Good idea? I'll have to move a sofa.

ndspinelli said...

Looks like those Beggin' Strips commercials.

Lem said...

I'm so used to seeing a quivering, thoroughly spoon fed post-tragedy guest... this guy is my hero.

BTW.. watch the democrats try to recruit from this fresh... batch?

Lem said...

What do you call a bucket of clams?

A fresh batch?

Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat —
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.

Lem said...

oh..

clams = money... washed... fresh campaign contributions.

I didn't get that at first.

I only got the "no feet" part.. as in gun control rhetoric not going anywhere politically.

Clever.

Lem said...

That's why Obama is so gun shy.

Obama goes all anti-gun... Romney rakes it in like he's gonna need a bigger boat..

Like when Jesus told them to cast the net on the other side..

I'm so glad you explained that! I've been looking at it and wondering. I never was good at figuring out optical illusions. I kept thinking what is that big black area?

Pogo said...

My dog he has no nose.

Pogo said...

The same joke, Godwinned.

ndspinelli said...

Pogo, LOL! You are on of my favorite commenters here.

Chip Ahoy said...

Wait a second.

Are those dogs in the kitchen?

Because if those dogs are in the kitchen then they went past the invisible line.

Don't you go all Oscar the Grouch on their asses the moment they step over the invisible line and all Groober and fun happy when they back up and reach safety area? To reinforce the exacting power of the invisible line. Which keeps the kitchen k-nine free zone. Doesn't everybody?

ndspinelli said...

Very cute, Garage.

ndspinelli said...

ChipAhoy, Absolutely. Loved our dogs, they could sleep on the sofas[that's when we went to leather]. But they were NEVER allowed in the kitchen and NEVER given people food. Guests would often remark, "Your dogs never beg." My response, "Because we never feed them our food, just theirs." They lived long, happy lives. Good quality dog food and lots of exercise. It's no rocket science. Like children, dogs need and crave limits.

Lem said...

Welcome to the blog Mayor Bloomberg ;)

Want some soda?

Lem said...

Garage buys kiddie pool.. charges by the hour... runs afoul kiddie pool regulators.

Seeks Obama Wave.

Good ball bust, Lem.

leslyn said...

If that's the dog's nose in the picture, it looks like it was carved out of a haybale.

David said...

What's going on?

Someone has balanced a hot dog bun on doggie's nose and doggie has learned the don't-eat-until-you-get-the-signal trick and is waiting for gobble go ahead.

rhhardin said...

My dog eats in the kitchen.

She gets an equal portion of my food as well, albeit censored for what's good for dogs.

Breakfast: two hard boiled egg yolks.

Lunch: streamed brown rice with some streamed veggie under it. Sometimes streamed diced chicken breast as well.

All hours, free fed: Purina One.

They recently changed Purina One so that not all kibbles are the same. As a result Vicki is picking out the good pieces and leaving rejects on the floor. Eventually rejects are all that there is, and she eats them finally. I could have done without the selection opportunity though. Bad move, Purina.

rhhardin said...

This would have been Vicki's second day, introduced to proper kitchen eating.

Puppy home.

The Elder said...

Two Labradors??? IN THE HOUSE????

I'm shocked, shocked to find out that there is canine appreciation going on this family!

chickelit said...

David suggested: Someone has balanced a hot dog bun on doggie's nose...

It does look like a hot dog bun--right color and everything.

Perhaps it is the fabled one-eyed, aggressively active, weiner eater.

Tibore said...

Hey, it's Doug from the movie "Up"!! :D

Meade said...

Elder,
You would have us, what, treat them like livestock???

Ann Althouse said...

"I'm shocked, shocked to find out that there is canine appreciation going on this family!"

He's trying to train me without my noticing.... He's up to the part where he puts water bowls on the wood floor and lets them slop it all over and sees if I seem to mind.

The most effective training takes place when the trainee doesn't even know he or she is being trained. You, on the other hand, seem to know it is taking place.

Just remember, he loves you. It's a test of love, all around.
