Bad dogs.

‘Bad dog’ is such a relative term. Arnie-man and I were in the backyard. One more potty-break for the night. Backyard at the apartment isnt enclosed all the way– its only like 85% enclosed. Well, the Giagantic Scottie (I dunno the breed– it looks like a Scottiedog, but almost as big as a Great Dane)…

When I first got Arnie-man, first thing I did was watch all of the Dog Whisperer DVDs available at that time. Dude has a whole pack of pit bulls, I wanted his advice on how to raise a proper Arnie-man. Sure, Cesar Millan could just be some sort of gimmick, but I followed his advice…

Dog days of summer

The ‘dog days’ of summer are the hottest time of the year, and boy weve been dealing with that crap for the past couple of weeks. Its been miserable out– getting so hot, it doesnt cool off outside until 6 am the next friggin morning. Ugh, and the ‘dog days’ of summer arent that fun…

Remember a couple months ago, when I freaked out at The Humane Society for speaking out against city animal shelters going no-kill? But then it turned out The Human Society wasnt really ‘The Humane Society’? It was really ‘The Humane Society of the United States’, an animal liberation group like PETA and ALF, cannibalizing The…
