Someone Told Me Y’all Like Dogs

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

I like dogs too. One of the things I’ve always liked about the Agitator is that its host isn’t afraid to puppy-blog. Puppy-blogging is frowned on at Popehat, because Ken has allergies. He claims that even images make him break out in hives.

I’ll be putting up images of dogs as long as Radley allows.  Here are three of mine, who were nice enough to pose this morning in order of seniority:

On the left, Wilbur. In the middle, “Tan Man” (that’s the name the rescue folks gave him; we call him “Tanner” as often as not, or when we feel like singing, “Oh, Tanny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling…”). On the right, our youngest, Bela.

Our senior boss-alpha dog, Rose, is approaching fifteen, she’s blind, and she doesn’t trifle with group photos any longer. She’s tolerant of the others, so long as they let her nap, and understand that she eats first…

In her salad days, Rose got around more often. This is what she looked like as a young lady, back when Bill Clinton was President:

I thought Bill Clinton was a scofflaw who deserved impeachment when this photo was taken.  Twelve years on, Bill Clinton looks pretty good, doesn’t he?

    Jeff Dunham the ventriloquist named his dog Bill after Bill Clinton, because he was humping everything.

    Yes, I like dogs and you have a very impressive pack. Very nice pictures. I have a male Newfoundland and a female Border Collie mix. The Newfie is 6, his name is Bam Bam. Sissy the Border Collie mix is 5.

    Clinton was a second rate JFK clone, and JFK was a mediocre President at best, but I have always suspected that what really angered the men who tried to impeach Clinton was not his sexual excesses, but his bad taste in mistresses. Face it, the Leader of the Free World isn’t supposed to be banging the help, and if he is the help should be spectacular or at least classy.

    Since Clinton the democrats have tried running an animatronic figure and a THIRD rate JFK clone who looked (and I wish I had come up with this one myself) “like Lurch’s brother who went to Choate”.

    Jug Ears was a desperation ploy by a party that was sick to death of the Clinton machine, and frankly comes across as so far in over his head that the fish swimming around his shoes make their own light.

    What a comedown for the Party of Harry Truman.

    Patrick from When he said “Puppy-blogging is frowned on at Popehat, because Ken has allergies” it was a pretty good clue. ;)

    I’ve thought every President from Reagan onward deserved impeachment. That’s probably because I wasn’t politically aware before that.

    In the years after taking down Nixon, the Intellectual Left has had Impeachment on the brain, and talked a lot of trash about every Republican President, but if the accusations of lawbreaking against Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II had had any substance the Democrats would have gone for it. They didn’t.

    Trying to Impeach Clinton over his sexual incontinence was a mistake. Technically he was a guilty as a cat in a goldfish bowl, but it went over like a lead balloon.

    Now, Jug Ears may be something else entirely. If he didn’t know about ‘Fast & Furious’ (who comes up with these names?), he is acting very oddly. If he did know, then there is a certain cold truth to the observation that Watergate didn’t have a body count. But it seems unlikely that he can be impeached before the election.

    We’ll see.

    Great pics Patrick. My pooch is 13 and I don’t see him finishing the year since he has unoperable cancer. He sleeps all day as well and is extremely hard to wake up. He would probably sleep through something chewing on him if he was in the wild.

    Glad we can give these special creatures a place of love and safety in their twilight years.
