Ummm, how about a toadal stranger?

Tell us in the comments!

Keep in touch, Barry F. You too, Sharpy and thanks for your inspiration!

Dog Loves You!

Dog loves you not.

Loves you!

Loves you not.

Loves you!

Loves you not.

Loves you and the flower too!

“Dog” is a Bassett Hound, named Howard. Who knew?! For more cute puppies go to Nat Geo Wild Your Puppy Pictures thanks to Marilyn T.

The Rare Fairy Chihuahua

According to folklore we just made up, Fairy Chihuahuas like to sleep in gardens.


If you find one, make a wish! If you wish for a Chihuahua, your wish will be granted! (Otherwise, probably not.)

Having a Bad Ear Day?

Don’t let it get you down, or upset.

Or bipolar even.

BREAK OUT!

Well what’s this new feeling coming out of the streets
Everybody’s talking ’bout it wherever they meet.
Down by the corner I keep getting the heat


Then my feet start moving to the rhythmic beat.
Breakdancing
break out – breakdancing


break out.
They used to do the locomotion
do the jerk and the twist


But there just ain’t never been nothing like this.
Now popping and locking is a new way of talking


Things will work out for sure spinning ’round on the floor.
Breakdancing
break out – breakdancing
break out.


Hearts are pumping
beat if thumping
love’s the way you’re looking tonight


Fever’s rising
no surprises
we won’t have the time to fight.


Breakdancing
break out – breakdancing
break out.


Breakdancing
break out – breakdancing
break out. . . .

Statuesque Beauty

Oh, my leetle rutabaga, why do you eeg-nore me? I loff you!


Just one kees, mah darl-leeng…


And if you think that was strange, the facts are stranger: This squirrel has become obsessed with this statue in a Russian suburb. Full story at the Daily Mail.

Dog Is My Co-pilot

It was 0700 hours when orders came down: After nightfall, we’d be bombing the enemy hydrants east of Wang Chung — over 60 miles into enemy territory.


I took one last look across the airfield. A lot of good men would be on this raid — men with wives, men with puppies. Some of them wouldn’t be coming back. It’s a fact every flyboy faces in Wawa Squadron. Death isn’t just your destiny, he’s your friend — the face in the mirror every morning, the hands tucking you in every night.


I could hear the great engines whining as they turned over. It was time to go. Doris stirred softly as I brushed her cheek. “Don’t wait up for me, honey,” I murmured.

Artful Dogger

When Border Collies are too gifted:

“My latest pastoral masterpiece captures the subversive interpretation of canine pathos of duplicity and diaphanous tension revealing a multilayered genius that illuminates my uncontrollable obsession with herding those #@!! sheep into a pen! They refuse to stay within the lines!”

“Should I grow a goatee? Or would that be too avant garde dog?”

A brush with genius, Susan S.
