It’s all canine this week.
Ain’t that the truth. My cardiologist won’t let me count my walks with Nora.
Now watch someone monetize this one.
He’s a catch – and probably more fun on a date than most of the lounge lizards.
I notice they don’t mention peeing on the rug.
Time for a Dad joke.
It should be an Olympic sport.
Well after all he is one of the family.
‘Taint funny Magee!*
Why does this look painfully familiar?
I must admit that when Nicky would see a bigger dog he became pretty fierce.
*Anyone who catches that reference is pretty old.
The word for November 7th is:
Fierce fîrs: [adjective]
1.1 Hostile and violent, especially by nature or temperament; ferocious.
1.2 Characterized by or showing hostility.
1.3 Extremely powerful or destructive.
From Middle English, from Old French fers (“wild”, “ferocious”), from Latin ferus (“wild”, “untamed”).
Time for a healthy mix of feline and canine memes to start the week
I don’t really agree with anthropomorphism and think Walt Disney has a great deal to answer for but the looking on this dog’s face is priceless.
You can conquer the world but good luck with a cat!
Sort of makes you want to question the fairness of this whole evolution thing!
Everyone has creation myths these days – why not cat?
The wonders of the machine age!
As always something for Doctor Spo.
As you kidding – you could clean up on the talk show circuit with that act!
The Greta Garbo of cats? Yes I know – who is Greta Garbo? Sigh.
I swear RF hangs around our house 24/7. There are only two but it must be what like the clammier was like for the loaves and fishes!
I’m puzzled by the reference to a “young adult” and then the 10 year daughter – are we not allowed to call them “children” anymore? I get so confused with all this PC stuff.
The word for June 6th is:
Anthropomorphism /ˌanTHrəpəˈmôrfizəm/: [noun]
The attribution of human characteristics or behavior to a god, animal, or object.
Derived from the verb form anthropomorphize, itself derived from the Greek ánthrōpos (ἄνθρωπος, lit. “human”) and morphē (μορφή, “form”). It is first attested in 1753, originally in reference to the heresy of applying a human form to the Christian God.
A second dog related post??? Have you gone rabid, I can hear my faithful reader ask. No, but while I’m working on a few other things I thought I’d share a few daschie related photos and observations.
There were no cute little puppy parcels under the tree or dog bones cunning festooned with red ribbon at Christmas but that did not mean the HFH didn’t get a gift. To start the New Year they were presented with a new puppy cushion – which Nicky chewed a hole in within the first 30 minutes.
Here’s themselves lounging in the canine comfort of their newly acquired and chewed-in cushion:
But you know who really needs a cushion when you can simply make yourself comfortable on another puppy’s head?
And they were not the only one’s to receive a New Year’s gift. Our friends Peter and Joe saw this little item and immediately thought of us – or rather thought of our dogs and then us! This little whimsical canine candelabra has given me an idea for a daschie themed table setting for the next dinner party. We have the dachshund knife rests, dachshund napkins, a dachshund decanter and now something for the centre of the table.
And no! I will not be serving sausage!!!!!!
