I’m so hard to handle. I’m selfish and I’m sad, now I’ve gone and lost the best small dog that I ever had.

They are claiming that this is a baby French Bulldog, but I am pretty sure it’s a hamster. Thoughts?

I just read a really touching story, about how a 10-year old girl (Katelyn) saved her miniature Beagle (Niki). Katelyn and Niki went down to the pasture to feed her family’s pigs, Wilbur and Charlotte. Niki attempted to crawl under an electrified gate and suffered a powerful shock that left her mini beagle body stiff and lifeless. Katelyn had a vision of a CPR chart that hangs in her lunch room and began performing CPR on Niki. Katelyn successfully brought Niki back to life! It is reported, that later that day Niki was jumping around the house as if nothing happened. Do you think Katelyn is on a path to sainthood?

Immerse yourself in rejection. Regurgitate some sorry tale. About a small dogs who sells his love affairs. You gotta fake the pain. You better make it sting.

Did you know that in the last 5 years sales of dog art have jumped 80%? I only wish they were talking about art created by dogs, and not dog themed art. Dog-themed art fetches soaring prices at auction. Christie’s is hosting a dog themed art auction June 22. You’ll know where to find me! Another fun fact, June 22 is Take Your Dog to Work Day! Best day ever.

Jeanne forwarded me this rather intriguing Wikipedia entry. This Jack Russell hails from Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill neighborhood. A former resident of Prospect Heights, she is listed on the Prospect Heights Wikipedia entry as the neighborhood’s “only notable resident.” According to Wikipedia, Tilamook Cheddar is also the world’s most successful animal painter! Tillamook Cheddar is of the abstract expressionist school of painting and has shown her work worldwide. Check out her coffee table book, “Portrait of the Dog as a Young Artist: Art from Scratch, By the World’s Preeminent Canine Painter“. I can’t believe that I live so close to a living legend.

The ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like small dogs across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”


Happy Friday the 13th! Perhaps you could watch this, in celebration.
Perhaps not.

I think I am going to pass on Year of the Dog in the theaters, but it will make it on to my Netflix queue. Making it on to the Netflix queue is very big deal.

I lived with them on Montague Street, In a basement down the stairs, There were small dogs in the cafes at night, And revolution in the air.

As promised, here are some photos of Buster from this past weekend.



As you can see, he’s a bit more “rough” than some of the other dogs featured on this site. I am fairly certain he did not spend his weekend reading the Unbearable Lightness of Being but her does speak English and Hungarain, which is more than I can say for myself.

Here in America, we want no child left behind, and in Toronto, Canada they want no dog poop left behind. They are filled with CRAZY ideas in Canada, how about this one, composting dog poop and perhaps turning it into bio-fuel in Vancouver! What year do they think it is, 2007?

Is anyone going to see Year of the Dog? I am undecided.

In non-small dog related news, I am sad to report that Kurt Vonnegut died today.

Peel me off this velcro seat and get me moving. I sure as hell can’t do it by myself. I’m feeling like a small dog in heat. Barred indoors from the summer street.

Fiza alerted me to this article in the NY Times Magazine concerning dog shelters. I honestly haven’t had a chance to read it yet but will get on that soon!

I wish I could write more, but I have to keep this brief. Wasn’t all the Mommy Dearest talk enough entertainment for a few days?

I saw the world crashing all around your small dog face. Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace.


With the summer almost upon us, you might need to get a life vest for your small dog. Do note: it’s not recommended for short legged breeds!

Stewart (and Joan) have really done it again. Yesterday, Joan sent me these absolutely amazing photos of Stewart. Doesn’t he look smart and sophisticated? Joan indicated that Stewart spent his holiday weekend reading. I bet he’s reading the Unbearable Lightnes of Being, a favorite of mine! Joan, what in fact is he reading?

Small dog genetics have been all over the news! There has been some discussion about shrinking down big dogs to make them miniature sized, but conversely does this mean that soon we will be able to create Rottweiler sized Chihuahuas? Or Yorkies the size of Great Danes? Blasphemy!

I went for a walk in the woods with Buster this weekend, photos soon to come.
