And Now, Back to “Decorating with Dogs”

Hello again! At the start of our program, we saw how to make a stirring re-creation of “Washington Crossing the Delaware” using crepe paper, felt swatches, and a litter of Chihuahuas, and in this half-hour, we’ll make this beautiful Fall centerpiece…

Ultimate Staredown

The adversaries locked their eyes on one another, and in that instant, what had seemed to him an unguarded treasure, ripe for the taking, was but a cruel illusion.

Greetings from Somewhere-or-Other

“… now, this picture was taken in Spain, or maybe Portugal, I always get those two mixed up, but anyway, our tour guide recommended this lovely little restaurant, El Flamenco Rococco or some such, and your father tried to impress me by ordering in Spanish, and the waiter just stood there like a saint writing it all down and then calmly informed your father that he had just ordered an umbrella in wine sauce.”


Chad R. says: “This is Jimmy (on the right) and Olive. Would you believe that they are brother and sister? When I’m not cooking and cleaning for them they expect to sit on my lap and be stroked.”

Time, Thou Art a Fickle Mistress

Oh sure, I was young once. The shiny ceramic supper dish, the squeaky toys with the fresh vinyl scent, “who’s the bestest boy?” — I had it all, and it was glorious.

Now look at me. Exiled to the “butt bed” while the new kid gets my favorite plaid cushion, trying to remember the exact moment when it all went wrong.

Not No Way, Not No How!

The Wizard? But nobody can see the great Oz! Nobody’s ever seen the great Oz! Especially not dogs! Especially if they’re aloud! So if you want to see the Great and Powerful Wizard, which you can’t, you have to be quiet! And try not to be so doggy!

Your Arches Have a New Enemy

… and now that we’ve set the proper mood, please enjoy the underwater antics of six-month-old Adhama, new hippo calf at the San Diego Zoo.

Happy Caturday to You

Just in case it happens to be anyone’s birthday today…


Ellen says: “My roommate’s and my kittens, Penny and Villain, turned one. We celebrated by putting hats on them and taking pictures.”

And Now, Prairie Dog Exorcism

“… and so I say unto thee, Jezebel spirit, begone from this virtuous woman! I bind thee with chains of iron and cast thee down to the fires from whence thee came!


Hallelujah, Shari E.!
