Dog days of dissertation writing

Poor Arnie. As much as Ive disliked writing my dissertation, hes disliked it more. SO BORED. So as I am trying to write, I either get Cute Bored Arnie: Or Creepy Bored Arnie: Ive been sitting at the kitchen table to write. If I look over my right shoulder, those glowing eyes are literally what…

Have a dog? Want to help science?

Record yourself playing with your puppies for 30-60 seconds and upload the vid to the Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab website! Dog-dog play has been, relatively, well studied. The signs/signals/noises pups play, the repercussions for not playing by the rules, the benefits of play to an adult pup, its a very interesting fusion of evolution and…

HAPPY SUNDOG! ZZZZZZZZ

Summer Arnie: Winter Arnie: I have to take video/pics of Arnie every time he sticks his tongue out like that when he sleeps.  I dont know whether its a pit thing or a goofy dog thing, but I just think its the CUTEST!

HAPPY SUNDOG! Ive got a fever…

Ive got a fever… puppy fever… and the only cure… is MORE PUPPIES!!! My Terrible Med Student Neighbor finally moved out, and the new guy who moved in is just wonderful.  Really sweet kid, quiet, and he just adopted a homeless puppy!  The sound of puppy feet trotting around upstairs… I can barely take it. …

HAPPY SUNDOG! Low fat sucks.

Ive known for a long time that I have a defective dog. Any self respecting pup eats Proper Dog Foods like meat and… well… meat. Sometimes grass. But while Arnieman loves meat… he also loves my vegan chili, roasted vegetables, Pop-Tarts (cherry), banana bread, hell, the boy even begs for fake bacon. And its not…

HSUS: Like PETA with suits and deodorant

The polite way to describe my opinion of the Humane Society of the United states is ‘Im not a fan‘. For those of you who are unaware, HSUS has absolutely nothing to do with ‘the Humane Society’ that rescues animals in your community. HSUS has nothing to do with rescuing animals at all– they give…

Quick update

Hai guise! Because of some complaints that NatGeo is getting about the posts/comment threads at ERV, Im taking them down here and putting them up at an alternate location (lots of you have offered, havent decided where yet, will update yall when its worked out). No big whoop– This is NatGeos property and I dont…

The Dog Particle

I was feeling left out this week– everybody talking about the Higgs Boson– I cant contribute anything except links to Ethans fantastic posts (what the hell does 5-some-greek-symbol mean? whats a Higgs?  wat?). But THIS I understand! The photographer who made that image, Seth Casteel, is AMAZING. AMAZING. If you want to make yourself sick…

Vaccinate your pets

Anti-vaxers are horrible people– They refuse to receive the recommended/required vaccinations and put everyone else (not just the very young, very old, or otherwise immunocompromised) at risk of contracting preventable diseases. Anti-vaxers are horrible parents– They abuse their children with their own personal ignorance and fears, dooming the poor things to preventable diseases and their…

Puppy Butt

For the past month, I have been living in the lab trying to cram some of my data + new data for a grant submission. I am alive right now exclusively due to the calories consumed via Mountain Dew (classic, and a wide variety of exciting flavors they have added to the collection), because I…
