At Jasper's Café...

Jasper

... we're a notch above the rest.

CORRECTION: That dog isn't named Jasper. It's Ruby.

Corgi? Part Corgi?

I though Corgi were stupid little British Royalty dogs until I finally met one. Great dogs all around.

Corgi-ish face shepherd body?

Who nicked Jasper's ear?

Rain today.

Your guess is good as mine on the ear notch, lemons. His owner did tell me that Jasper regularly falls asleep with the tennis ball in his mouth.

Jasper might be part Corgi. I have a special place in my heart for cattle-herding dogs. One of my earliest memories is of watching my grandfather, from atop his horse, move cattle from pasture to paddock with the help of his dogs. His dogs looked like this guy. He always had 5 or 6 dogs and Grandpa named each and every one of them "Tip".

I've been almost afraid to go back to Lileks fearing bad news about Jasper the dog. I've had sad news today about the passing of an old friend, but it was that picture of decrepit old Jasper at Lileks' site that brought a tear to my eye.

@ madAsHell

Correct spelling and grammar is "micro-aggression"? Oh, the poor little dears! Get them a juice-box and a peanut-butter sandwich! Their feewings have been bruised! That cruel, evil, bad racist man must suffer for his crimes!

:BIG Eyeroll:

Their irony detectors are broken as well.

I think our hostess introduced the micro-aggression concept some time ago.

Cisneros and Watson said they thought the sit-in was warranted because of similar alleged incidents of racial discrimination over the past 20 years.

So people made racist comments in 1993 and these kids figure they'll do a sit-in today to protest?

"Micro-aggression". FFS.

Clyde, better not get them a peanut butter sandwich as that's racist aggression. Get them a pita or a torta instead.

On a different note, we have a Pomerian that regularly falls asleep with a stuffed toy in his mouth. Cutest thing ever.

We have another Pomerian who doesn't, so I don't think it's a breed thing. An individual doggie idiosyncracy.

"Expect dry conditions over the next six hours" = expect rain and gale-force headwinds.

What is looks like when you walk up from the basement after a tornado hit your house. Holy Moley!

That's not Liliek's Jasper!

Is this a dig at Dana Perino?

@ John Constantius

That was a cold, calculated peanut butter sandwich, by the way, designed to cause race hucksters to expire in paroxysms of quivering outrage if their peanut allergies didn't do them in first.
