Your pre-dawn Meade dog.

Here's that video Meade was editing in the next room when I called out that question last night about the first automobile. There are no cars in this video, only dogs, lots of dogs, filmed by Meade yesterday at the Capital Springs dog park. Meade gets down to the dog's-eye level and, in the editing — with music licensed via iMovie — opens the portal to Dog World:



You see what it's like in there?

Ah, what a life, just being a dog. They should all be so lucky.

Thanks for a smile to start my morning before I go off to school. How joyful! Is Zeus a randy fella despite being (it looks like) fixed? - sorry dude, no insult intended - Or is that mounting feint just another kind of play? These dogs are the lucky ones, to have owners who will take them out for this healthy activity. Tails wagging!

I only got a dachshund puppy because my boyfriend wanted one, so We got Archie. I ended up being the one infatuated with the breed, though. I would bring the dog to interviews to "answer" questions I didn't care for. I also took Archie to galleries, on business trips, on photo shoots and to my studio. Sometimes we would have milk and cookies, and sometimes he would bite Ryan O'Neal. Now: Ryan O'Neal, he was a Different kind of Weiner Dog.

"Or is that mounting feint just another kind of play?"

I told Meade -- when I previewed the edit -- that the ladies wouldn't like that, that we see it as too much like something that amongst humans would be a criminal assault, but he says that amongst dogs this is... oh, he can explain it. Something else, as you anticipate. Something about dog society...

And, of course, these male dogs at the dog park are all neutered.

Dog post = Cafe post?

"Signing up for insurance on the new health-care marketplaces can be challenging enough without having to remember your high-school mascot. Or your favorite childhood superhero, the manager at your first job or the street you lived on in third grade. Those are just some of the security questions being offered to shoppers on the state and federal exchange sites as a way to verify their identities—and they are leaving some would-be customers flummoxed. "I don´t think they took baby boomers into account when they invented those questions," says Margo Benge."

I ran into these "security questions" when trying to sign up at another website - I do not remember what, but it was not anything big - and having trouble since I did not grow up in this country and had no experience with the things they were talking about.

So, I do not think these questions are very good in the first place, and what is this billion-dollar effort doing copying this kind of stuff from the small fry, and not even bothering to think about it?

"...amongst dogs this is..."

Demonstration that he is Top Dog. Leader Of The Pack. King Of The Tennis Ball.

Since both male and female canines are neutered, it has nothing to do with sex.

Nothing is as wonderful as a dog. We adopted a third mutt who is part Pitt bull. There's never been a more loving animal. She likes to stretch out beside you and sleep on the sofa. When she's not in your lap.

Awesome video! Meade has a ruff life. As does that tennis ball.

Males and their fixation on balls. ...

Zeus is all about ownership of the ball and the one who throws it.

An utterly cool video. Great music for it.

That some-sort-of-shepherd dog who kept wanting to know what in heck Meade was doing was hilarious.

Thanks so much for posting this. On some bleak winter day I will watch it again, and feel a bit of fall/spring zippiness.
