At the Is-This-Exciting Café...



... some of us can barely contain ourselves... couldn't contain ourselves in a venti cup...

Will there be a point when the neighbors' dogs decide they like Meade more than their owners?

Hopefully it doesn't get to the point where the owner is full-on dragging the dog in the house as Meade walks away.

I didn't watch -- but does a dog run towards the cranes, and make them all take off? Hope so -- that's what Dogs are for, after all.

I always liked taking our previous dog to Vilas Park for that reason. We'd show her all the geese (I don't call it GoosePoop Park for nothing), and she'd be off. Of course, that's technically illegal in Madison, to have a dog off leash in a park. Sue me.

I just love it when dogs try to talk.

The cranes are in a field on the other side of the street from the dog park.

Dog park is fenced in nicely.

Zeus contains verisimilitudes.

Professor Althouse,

I'm sorry to have to inform you that Krazy Jim's Blimpyburger has lost its lease and must move. The U of M wants the entire block for expansion.

Local sentiment is that they should demolish the University and expand Blimpy's

Ann Althouse said...

Thanks, Harrington.

I put up a new post.

My Dad's dog used to vocalize all the time when we'd drive around in the bronze and white '69 Blazer. A passing car or truck with a dog on board sent him into a frenzy. We still have the Blazer, but both Dad and dog are running around in heaven.

My dad and my dog are still earthbound but the Honda Odyssey minivan that served parents, 5 kids and a black lab was traded in 2 years ago.
Black Lab "Babe" no longer responds to "Ya wanna go for a ride?" but still gets excited about the question, "wanna go for a walk?"

For a minute, I thought Mother dear was going to stay all warm in the car while the menfolk braved the winter storm.

But for Heaven's sake, woman, put a watch cap or something warm on that poor man's head. A baseball cap is for summer.

(and I don't want to hear about how he put up the hood...)

He dresses himself.

First snow a dog of mine saw bothered the heck out of her. She didn't know what it was. Was afraid to walk in it and she just tip toed around in it.

Southern dog... snow on the South Plains of Texas.

My black lab Jack has a ritual of swimming in the first snow drift of the year he encounters.

Two ways to be rude with a dog:

(1) Allow your dog to be off leash at the children's playground area at a park.

(2) Have a large dog on leash but wearing the sort of leash that makes it appear you barely have control of him, for example, a choke collar with large barbs around the inside against the dog's neck, at the children's playground area at a park.
