Trivial...but so sublime!

In the past I have criticized others for blogging about nothing but inane things like food and the weather. I think I have tried to keep the intellectual level pretty high around here. But all ethics and no sausages makes Fido a dull dog (or something like that) FOOD! WEATHER!!

Food: Why would you call it a doggie bag if it wasn't for the dog? (It was delicious. But next time, please order CHEESE garlic bread!)


I think a picture is worth 1000 words on this one.

This too shall pass

Dale here with a math poblem for everyone:

If it takes 24 hours for 20 cookies to pass completely through the various components of the digestive system of a one 17 lb. dog, how many hours would it take for 40 cookies to pass through a now-18 or 19lb. dog?

Answer: Sweet lordy, I hope I never find out! (To this end, I have placed the other two bags of cookies on a very high shelf, with the cooking instruments and iron and other things I never use).

If I am out for a walk and there is a piece of chicken on the ground, I take it. I don't "loot" it. Nobody else wants it, it's there, I'm hungry, and that's that. Even if someone else does want it--okay, let's say it's even not on the street but oh, say, in the hand of a well-fed human being who clearly is not as desperate as I am because if he/she were, he/she would have eaten it already... I, meanwhile, am at brink of starvation, and possibly will not survive until the end of my walk if I do not get that piece of chicken now. So how can we talk about property rights, about looting, when this is a matter of self-preservation? Of life and death?

Rules about trespassing and private property go out the window when...oh say...every window in the entire country is broken, and all the buildings in which said windows were found is in rubble on the ground. People and dogs of Haiti: if I could send you the next piece of chicken I find, I would.

Dogs. Humans. Believers. Atheists. Agnostics. Pray for Haiti and the Haitians--on the island and abroad. Also send/donate whatever you can.
