Shouldn't Happen to a Dog

I'm basically a friendly cockapoo, but I'm kinda scared, like of other dogs. I don't know why, but they always want to beat me up. Like, I go to the dog park sometimes, just to have fun, you know, and sniff around. Lots of dogs there, big dogs, little dogs, and all the sizes in between. But who do they pick on, who do they stalk? Me, friendly little Tommy. And on my walks, the other dogs are always real mean to me, mean barks like they really want to get me, and sometimes they do and my dad has to protect me. I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but there's even a cat who trys to bully me. I don't like to fight back, I'm kinda scared and I just want to be a good boy. But gosh darn it all, i just gotta do something.

So I saw this ad from a guy named Charles Atlas and he says he can make me strong and tough in as little as 15 minutes a day. Well, I don't have a lot to do during the day, when my familiy is away, all I do is kinda laze around. So what do you think. Do you think Charles Atlas can make a new dog out of me?

Bush Bails Out the Fat Cats

It's time to get really outraged. The Fed will bail out Bear Stearns, one of the richest Wall Street companies:
Once again, Bush shows his true stripes, giving money to his 'fat cat' friends (I mean that figuratively, if he was really favoring the fat cats, I would be even more outraged). That money could really be used for good to help the poor. There are cockapoos starving in Mt. Airy, Mr. Bush. But do you care?

Just a lot of poo? Breedism in America

Some dogs I know say we live in a post-breedist society, breed doesn't matter, all dogs are equal. Well, read this . . . if this doesn't scare the dog poop out of you, I don't know what will.

Here are some choice quotes:

"Behind the hype and the clever name is a common mutt."

"Every mixed breed dog . . . is one of a kind because its genetic makeup is an unpredictable jumble of characteristics. No two are alike. Does this factor alone justify a high price, higher than what's charged by many reputable breeders of quality purebreds?"

"Don't be fooled by the whimsical names, the intriguing descriptions, and the high prices! It's just a lot of poo. "

This is how it started with the humans in Germany. They said no one was as good as the quality purebred German. Then look what happened. Dogs and sympathetic humans, take note and BEWARE. And while you're at it, be sure to email that 'Paula' (email link in the article) and let her know that her kind of breedist thinking is un-American.

June 1

Some little dog (I'm not going to say who, but he looks a lot like the cute little cockapoo to the left) has a birthday coming up. And I think I know what he might like for a present. If you can't think of the perfect present for that special little guy, why not consider this:

The Campaign Rolls Forward

I didn't want to rush right out and start bragging last Tuesday after Hillary won impressive victories. Those who frequent my blog can probably guess that we cockapoos are humble creatures. We're not gonna do any trash talking or anything like that. But an impressive victory it was. I'd like to think that in some small way I was helpful, getting out the dog vote and all. I'm friendly with a dog close to the campaign who tells me Hillary will soon release a new plan to allow a tax write-off for dependent dogs. So owners will have more money for bones and toys and stuff like that. This will sure help some sad cases, like the lady who went to the cupboard to fetch her poor doggie a bone, but I heard that when she got there, the cupboard was bare. Kinda breaks your heart. All you in Pennsylvania, PLEASE consider this when you get out for that important vote next month.
