"Hey, there, Zeus! Thanks for coming over."

This is great but how long will it go on? Won't the real owners get jealous at some point about sharing him with you?

I like that Zeus can be trusted off lead. A little talk before opening the door to set the idea. And responds to Meade's voice and comes in directly. Not all dogs would do that. That one little spaz we watched playing would take off without the sense to find its way back. I love dogs with lines working with people, they're naturally responsive.

A friend's terrier wees like that. He said the dog was hit by car and that's why he's different.

I'm having dinner at the Sardine tonight. With a woman that was a neighbor to my wife growing up. One of the sisters is in town from Alaska, and she allegedly chews tobacco. [Or at least used to]. The Redman loose leaf stuff.

Redneck card punched tonight!

Zeus comes in, "Hi, Aunt Ann, any yummies around?".

Palladian said...

YES! Finally acknowledgement of the finest dog breed of all, the Boston Terrier!

Palladian said...

Like the Meadehouse, I also have a vicarious dog, though I don't get to see mine as often: my mother's Boston Terrier, Maggie, my birthday present to mother in 2008.

Zeus is smart enough that you could just give him his own house key.

We have a Boston Terrier, Abbie, who pees while balanced on her front feet. I think she wants to avoid peeing on her feet. Her brother Franklin has no such compunction. He will pee on anything.

I will post this bit about Benghazi here (since there are no other threads).

From the ARB report: "...Plans for the Ambassador’s trip provided for minimal close protection security support and were not shared thoroughly with the Embassy’s country team, who were not fully aware of planned movements off compound. (p. 6)

Why were they not shared with the Embassy's country team? Because it was a WH intelligence operation? Why are they blaming Hillary for it if it was not even a consulate and not a State department operation? Republicans are not asking the right questions and Obama is getting away with murder.

What's that white stuff on the ground?

The hand-standing puppy was delightful! It warms my heart, which is now three sizes too big.

The Elder said...

Uh oh. I mustn't play this one for the Princess. I would never hear the end of her complaining about your raccoon chew toy!

I love dogs.

Get dog now needy, you will be so thrilled.

Clumbers HAVE HUGE WAITING LIST THOUGH AND THE PRICE IS ASTRONOMICAL. THINK LAB. YOU WILL AVOID ALL THE ATTENTION OF EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO PET YOUR "CLUMBERLAND" SPANIEL.

Zues Volt!

Zues Volt is so obvious. Has it been used before here? Should I be chagrined? If not, I made a witty.

I have a Great Pyrenees and a Scottish terrier. When we lived in Texas, the Chihuahua from down the street would break out of his yard. He would come down to my house, bark at the front door until I opened it and let him in. He would then go to my back door and wait until I let him out so he could go play with my dogs. Thing is, my dogs couldn't stand the little guy.

His owner would eventually come and get him.

Please pardon my dyslexic typing. Sister Vincent didn't whack me hard enough with the ruler in Typing I. Zeus.

Would you care to see an affront to persimmons?

They're weak flavored and needed help, concentration would be the thing, instead I mistakenly diluted them to oblivion. They could as easily been sweet potato.

Shit! It's Christmas already?

I haven't even sent out cards yet.

All Men are dogs. I should know, i am one.

A lot of women know this already,

Symptoms

Eat
Sleep
Hang out with friends
Tear up the furniture
Slobber all over female dogs.
Leave stuff lying all over the house
Ignore Mom when there is an intriguing object in front of us

HEY WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THAT WATER HOSE

Paul said...

Good dogs there.

We have two of 'em and while they can be real tooters they can also be angles.

They to brighten up ones life.

Broomhandle said...

I've had dogs all my life and I loved each one. But I never bonded closely with one until we got our two dachshunds. They are distinctly individualistic characters and they bring a lot of happiness into our house. Plus I get to say shit like, "I guess I'll go take my wiener out in the street" or "Have you seen my little wiener?". Comedy gold. Of course the neighbors are probably saying things like, "Hey Martha, there's two wieners and a dick out in the street!".

More serious doggie cuteness from elsewhere. Wimp.com is a great supplier of doggie videos.

We had those Currier and Ives dishes when I was a kid. Both the blue and the red. That baby girl boston is the cutest little thing.

Meade said...

"I would never hear the end of her complaining about your raccoon chew toy!"

Chew toy? He would never harm a hair on it's head. It's his pet raccoon - he parades it around the house - always with a soft mouth. It's his little love object. He'll occasionally bring it as if he is sharing a precious gift with us although we usually tell him thanks but no thanks as it is invariably all wet with dog slobber.
