The Dog Days Of Spring
Posted on 05.09.17 by Danny Glover @ 8:16 pm

Whenever the whether gets warm, this dog likes to cruise through our city in his master’s hot rod. My walk home from the train station this evening finally coincided with the driver getting stuck in traffic long enough for me to snap a photo.

How To Box A Kangaroo
Posted on 12.05.16 by Danny Glover @ 10:54 am

What would you do if a kangaroo had your dog in a headlock? This strikes me as an appropriate redneck response.

Sweet Dog, Mean Cat, Strong Mouse
Posted on 01.11.14 by Danny Glover @ 2:56 pm

Two funny animal videos made their way into my Facebook feed this morning. The first illustrates the difference between mama dogs and mama cats:

The second is a commercial from 2010 that looks like it’s sure to infuriate the “animals are people, too” crowd but ends on a happy note for the mouse:

Both videos made me laugh, which is a good way to start the weekend. Enjoy yours.

Herman Cain, Free Speech And Bunny Skeet
Posted on 03.26.12 by Danny Glover @ 10:05 pm

I will defend to the death (OK, not really) the right of Herman Cain or anyone else to make bizarre Internet videos that simulate cruelty to animals to condemn government taxes on small businesses:

But I will never vote to elect as president a man who lacks the sense to see that such a video is neither entertaining nor enlightening. I’m so glad voting for Cain is not an option anymore. I can’t believe he was a viable candidate last year, however briefly.

Puppy Handstand
Posted on 01.11.12 by Danny Glover @ 11:17 am

I saw a clip of this on Fox News this morning and thought it was amazing. Then I searched YouTube and found several videos of dogs doing handstands. OK, it’s not unique but it’s still adorable.

Daisy The Fire Dog
Posted on 12.17.11 by Danny Glover @ 11:21 pm

Our scaredy dog Daisy discovered fire tonight when we started the first one of the winter in our fireplace. Clearly we won’t be able to leave her alone in the living room with a fire burning. She may catch herself, and then our whole house, on fire.

Smart dogs respect fire and keep their distance. Daisy, not so much.

How To Quit Your Job — Or Not
Posted on 08.12.10 by Danny Glover @ 12:26 am

Serious news is rarer in the dog days of summer, so journalists fill their pages, pixels and airtime with silly stories. This week’s big news: An airline steward quit his job.

Here’s a sample of the praise being heaped upon the man who brought to life the message of “Take This Job And Shove It“:

I’ve got no problem with JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater grabbing a cold brewski before popping the disaster slide on Flight 1052 and kissing his airline career goodbye. In fact, the guy is a hero.

That’s right, act like a child and commit a crime in the act of quitting your job and you, too, can be a global hero.

Or how about this spin? “It’s refreshing when someone decides to flourish his way out of a job instead of taking the now-cliche mass-murder suicide route.” Have we sunk so low that the only two options for quitting a job are mass murder and obnoxious, self-indulgent behavior?

I behaved that way once. The band director in high school rightly scolded a few classmates and me for talking out of turn on the field at the end of practice. I had been ready to quit band at the start of that season anyway and was surprised and embarrassed by the lecture. So when the band director publicly invited any of us who couldn’t stop talking to leave and not come back, I walked.

I thought I was so cool at the time. A few of my classmates did, too. But most of them knew what I refused to see until years later when I recounted the story to my wife and she enlightened me as to what I really had been: a stupid 17-year-old kid and a disrespectful punk.

Boxer vs. Bumper
Posted on 03.26.10 by Danny Glover @ 2:48 pm

This dog, a mix of boxer and pitbull, is definitely not law enforcement’s best friend. He spent some time in jail and has to go to obedience class after shredding the bumper of a police car:

Winston (that’s the dog’s name) must be the leader of the crazy tea party movement that has Democrats in Congress cowering in fear.

Man’s Best Earthquake Friend
Posted on 01.14.10 by Danny Glover @ 10:03 am

Before the devastating Haiti earthquake, a smaller rumbling within Earth’s core hit Northern California. Video from a newsroom in the area captured a dog sensing the quake before it was noticeable to her owner and the man’s colleagues. Here’s the clip:

Pet Fun: Givin’ The Dog A Bone
Posted on 10.16.09 by Danny Glover @ 12:16 pm

There’s nothing like a little dog-inspired laughter to get in the mood for the weekend.

One of my favorite scenes is the opening clip of the small dog taking a leak on the big dog and then kicking dirt on him. That reminds me of one of our dog stories.

We used to have two pooches named Shelby, a German Shepherd/Labrador mix, and Peanut, a Corgi/Dachshund/Terrier mix. Shelby was the runt of her brood but still more than twice the size of Peanut. But Peanut was older and was tough on Shelby when she was a puppy.

Peanut paid the price when Shelby was full grown. The two occasionally fought, usually over food, and Shelby always won. We were the real losers, though, because of the vet bills to repair the damage to Peanut. We eventually decided to keep the dogs separate at all times — one in the house and one outside or one in her crate on bad weather days and the other roaming free in the house.
