It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Expensive Ticket!

I never really thought much about the logistics of Elephant travel. But this picture of two of the eleven Ringling Brothers ladies, disembarking the train, makes loading three dogs, with their respective crates and supplies needed for a journey, look like a walk in the park!

That stopped any whining from me! Though since I moved from German Shepherds to Cardis, I've not been whining much anyway. Great old photos.

When I read the subject line, I thought the dogs were speeding ;-)

Well, if Denali had thumbs, she'd definitely be out with Moe's sports car. There's no doubt that we'd be seeing some speeding tickets with that girl behind the wheel!

And since Sage follows her whenever possible, he'd be smiling happily from the passenger seat while the officer wrote her up! thumbs!
