At the Samoyed Café...

Untitled

... you can make a new friend.

ADDED: You can spin yarn from your Samoyed's wool and knit sweaters, which will be extremely warm.

Looks like Abby's now part of the pack.

PS Who gets the Samoyed sweater, Zeus or Abby?

My father owned two samoyeds, one after the other. in his later years.

After my parents would brush the dog in the back yard, they would throw the clots of fur on the ground. During nesting season, the birds would immediately swoop down and grab the tufts of dog fur, and take it to line their nests. They would even fight over the tufts!

Great to see the snow finally melting away.

Is that a Turkey with the dog? I got to say ... they are EVERYWHERE now.

Most hard headed and difficult to train dog I ever had was a Sammy, but she was a lovey thing.

First dog in the second photo looks very Ayrshire. That's OK--we have a Holstein rabbit.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

What's that smell?

Is it...

No.

No way. Not again. Not today. NOT TODAY.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

The Big R, Doggies!

Our yard has dog/rabbit symbiosis going on. The rabbit spends the whole day hopping around nibbling grass (especially weeds) and visiting "poo corner" where she deposits dozen of perfectly formed spherical pellets. The dog loves to eat these droppings and after googling, we discovered that it's a natural impulse for dogs--the pellets are rich in B vitamins and enzymes.

Oh:

Never mind.

We also have two outdoor cats but they mostly steer clear of the dog and rabbit. They're more concerned with the birds that visit. They rarely get any but they do suffer what I call "bird mouth" this time of year. Bird mouth is like a vocal spasm wherein the cat's mouth locks open and it utters a vibrato meow. I'm sure there's a technical name for it.

Time to get a new Sammie.

I had Sammies while I lived in Alaska. indeed hard-headed, but highly affectionate and great dogs for the north.

Did you see the pic of Hillary doing her best imitation of an Althouse side view portrait?

Quite flattering actually.

Does anyone else get tired of seeing Democrats with their nose in the air?

sfw said...

The only thing worse than having to care for a dog would be having to care for one of those ridiculous, fluffy, smelly, stupid samoyeds. Why would you bother? bad enough enough having to pick up its turds but then have to wash and groom the creature? I guess I've a life to live and others haven't.

That's an old picture.

There was a time the Hildabeast had a kind of Barbara Stanwyck thing going (think "The Big Valley"), but that was a long time ago.

And Althouse, as I said when the full pic was first put up, looks like the skipper of a 4 masted schooner in the China Trade piloting her ship through a high sea.

Hillary! projects an arrogance in her picture, rather then the cool self-confidence of Madame La Professeur.

Mitchell the Bat said...

Last night I had a dream and it filled me with wonder. She had other plans.

She said, "I've got to go and I know that you'll understand."

And the funny thing about it is . . . I understand.

My neighbor has three of these, which is why my chicken coop now has an electric fence.

That pic of Hillary! brings to mind Mussolini more than Althouse.

That link is the Crack MC intentionally taking my remarks out of the actual context of that bullshit piece of faux-sympathy for assholes. "Rap" as portrayed there hardly brings innovational black music to mind....which is a primary music fount in America, far exceeding the demographic in fact.

Oh, wait....I'm such a moron for not recognizing Snoop Poop & company as an artistic equivalent to my all time musical favorite, Ahmad Jamal. I shall make amends. No...that's a lie.

He knows better than that, he is smarter than that, and he damn sure should know better about me ... but what the heck, it is his blog. I'll make sure I discuss this bigotry of mine with my bi-racial kid, and will double check my friends to see if any of them are really black black...you know, like the short cut entertainment hucksters are black black, the only gen-U-ine black blacks.

It's going to be hard....it is so very hard to find black folk in Detroit. Mexicans and Arabs are scarce too....we so lily white an all.

Love that laughing dog. Can you turn it into a close up?

Ann Althouse said...

That's a beautiful picture of Hillary. Good reminder to hold your chin up and smile. And face the light source. And tuck your hair behind your ears except for a little hair over the tops of your ears unless you have perfect, shell-like ears.

KenK said...

Beautiful dog. I wouldn't want to be the one who has to brush him/her out after a romp through the weeds though.Probably no fun around shedding time either.

Close enough?

Regarding the old picture comment if edutcher's:

"Chin up" in Hillary is something to be despised.

"Chin up" in Althouse is something to be taken for granted and to take advantage of.

"Chin up" in terms of The Blonde is to, at all times and every time, in all ways and every way, to bow to The Blonde's take on things, as presented by edutcher, otherwise known as:

He Who Knows All About Everything Because His Blonde Is The Expert On And About Everything, Unlike Any And Every Other Woman In The Entire World, With The Possible Exception Of Shouting Thomas' Myrna.

Which, of course, also means that any guy who was not married to Myrna or who is not currently living with The Blonde is a worthless pussy.

Day-um. So awesome.

Pftuie.
