Talk about doggies...

Check out this doggie. She comes over to visit me for lunch every day.

I don’t know if you have ever tried the Google Image Search, but it is wildly random. After trying it with my own avatar and getting a rude awakening (apparently, my head looks like female ass, among worse things), I tried Althouse’s avatar. She is much more interesting. Blogger won't allow me to format the link with tags, but here it is.

Freeman, you know this already, but drivers down here are absolute idiots in winter weather. I'm looking forward to the ice tomorrow morning. I may have to walk.

Like this one:

A diamond and gold dead goat?

I can't see the cafe pic.

ST, Molly is beautiful and cuddly and what a nice visitor to have!

If you want to do the image search just open Google search in a window and drag any image into the search box and select the "visually similar" option. It's cool.

Here's a fitting one that came up using ST's avatar:

I can't see any video on my Kindle Fire.

This blog has been negative lately. The echo chamber on the right has solidified hereabouts.

Shouting Thomas said...

That's a great avatar for an Old Dawg, bagoh!

Bob Ellison said...

Correction: the flicker video stream works on my Kindle Fire.

Ann Althouse said...

I think the problem was flash video. I put it up at Flickr instead of YouTube. I've changed it to just a link so there wouldn't be blank space. Annoying.

Bob Ellison said...

Professor, that seems to have resolved the problem for me. Cute pup.

Chip Ahoy said...

Wow, that was weird. First it was there then it disappeared.

But I remember it well, it was a black dog that was laying there sleeping.

Shouting Thomas said...

Stinkin' Old Dawgz spent the weekend in the studio.

Here's one of the first rough mixes.

That friggin' Old Big Joe can still crank out the lead guitar, even if he can't remember shit.

My dog dreamed about chasing rabbits and squirrels that she could never catch. Her paws would quiver in an endless run, and she would whine. Poor girl.

edutcher said...

Saw the vid. Reminiscent of Sherlock somehow.

Must be the untroubled conscience.

Understandable in Zeus' case.

Less so (much less so) in Sherlock's.

I agree, some very nice likenesses.

Glad there are none of me.

There are, however, a couple of The Blonde, but she doesn't want me advertising them.

"The study also found that the average person passes gas up to 10 times a day and that a woman’s fart smells worse than a man’s."

Not very lady-like, as my mom might have said.

I checked out a David Foster Wallace book from the library.

What a tormented mind. I didn't finish the book. I returned it.

Greetings from Bavaria.
I've been here a couple of days now, and I'm sure I've put on five pounds by now.

The weather has been cloudy, with about four inches of snow the night before last. We had a slight break in the clouds yesterday afternoon, and I saw that the alps were much closer than I expected.

Lem said...

I just watched this for the first time and thought it was very good.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Have you ever wondered what would happen if three different cultural cusines decided to play a game of cullinary chicken, then, at the very last moment, none if them swerved?

Me neither.

But if I had, I imagine the carnage would look something like this:

McCurry Wurst

Google it if you want to see a picture. I dare you.

" woman’s fart smells worse than a man’s."

That's because they insist on recycling shit that should have been let go years before.


ST, Nice. I like your voice. Very unique, with a little Leon Russell to it.

PianoLessons said...

Boy - do I want a dog or two after watching your blog these past weeks.

Never in my adult life have we (hubbie and I) not had a dog. We took the loss of our Golden Retriever Colby pretty hard two years ago.....

But you guys make me want to jump right back into the land of living with ......you know.....unconditional love.

Chip Ahoy said...

I read in a book that dogs dream weirdly in black and white and I wonder how such a thing would be known.

Maybe that was people dream in black and white and dogs see in black and white but whatever it was that I read if it's true then black and white dogs must dream weirdly indeed, and I imagine there is no way of knowing for sure.

kentuckyliz said...

I am on my laptop now and clicked through and saw the video.

AA/Meade, let sleeping dogs lie.

Are St. Bernard's inherently sad, or is this one the exception?

Michael K said...

Some of us have a best friend all the time. I just took Winston out for his walk at 5 AM since today is my day to leave at 6 for the medical school. He saw a coyote and went nuts barking. I'm sure I'll hear later from the nasty old dog hater neighbor.

See my new avatar?
My truck got wrecked.
Hit a lightpole.
No. I was sober.
Some idiot thought he was supposes to stop for a school bus on a divided highway.
It was either him or the lightpole.
The lightpole won.
I'm OK though.
No. Really.
Your concern is touching.
I'm fine.
A little stiff.
But that might be
the viagra.

MM, where are you?

garage mahal said...

My hound woke up with a great big swollen eye. wife is taking him in this morning. Hope he's ok!

People vs. Winter

Shanna said...

MM, where are you?

I was wondering the same thing. How is your area this morning? We got some sleet yesterday in LR but this morning the roads were clear. I was hoping for just enough ice to excuse a late start for work but no such luck.

Of course after Christmas I can do without ice for a while. Fixing meter loops is apparently very expensive!

AprilApple said...

Allen S-- That was totally worth the waste of time. Thanks.

@ bagoh20

That visually similar images thing is a hoot! Mine from my little green snake brought up green bubbles, a green dollar sign, a green Om sign, a green dice with nine dots, a green frog and a green salamander, among other things. I'll keep my snake as my avatar, though, since it's my fantasy baseball team's (Oconomowoc Mocs) logo. Go Mocs!

"Some idiot thought he was supposes to stop for a school bus on a divided highway."

Way back in 1979, that happened to be the only question I got wrong on my Driver's exam. I said of course you shouldn't stop for a school bus on a divided highway. But I was marked as wrong. 34 years later, I still remember that question.

Sheeeesh! Well, its about time! It has been, what, 3 days since the last dog pic?!!!

Rusty, I drive the same truck. I thought they were indestructible. That's what the dealer told me. Damned car salesmen can't be trusted anymore than a politician.

rhhardin said...

NYT(via insty) grammar

Across industries and geographic areas, many other jobs that didn’t used to require a diploma — positions like dental hygienists, cargo agents, clerks and claims adjusters — are increasingly requiring one..

Not copy editor, though.

The operator did[n't] takes the base form verb use, not used.

They're hearing the 't' in 'to' and taking it as a 'd.'

To be fair it was a 99 with almost 200,000 on the clock.
It was very good to me. Only two water pumps, a set of plugs and ball joints in all that time. I only wish the drivers side sheet metal wasn't rotting away.
