They’re out to get you, there’s small dogs closing in on every side. They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial. Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together. All thru the night I’ll save you from the terror on the screen, I’ll make you see.

Happy Halloween!!!

In an unexpected role reversal, James Harris was shot last Friday while out with a party shooting for pheasants, shot by his dog that is. Mr. Harris rested his gun on the ground while retrieving a pheasant when BANG, poochie stepped on the trigger.

And the Fido for best supporting small dog goes to….Hellen Mirren’s Corgis for their riveting performance in The Queen.

Heather Mills has gotten herself into some trouble with an elaborate fireworks display. Mills threw a $200,000 birthday bash for her daughter, complete with a fireworks finale. The neighbor claims that her dog Glow died due from a bloated gut, which could be do to stress from the brilliant extravaganza.

From my laboratory in the castle east, to the master bedroom where the small dog vampires feast. The ghouls all came from their humble abodes to get a jolt from my electrodes.

A Pomeranian and Jack Russell mix (I’d like to see that!) is credited with saving his owner’s, Teddi Sampson, life by warning her of Melanoma. This is not surprising since it is now widely known that small dogs=magic, and make the best doctors. This particular pup’s diagnostic skills proved to be superior to Sampson’s own family physician. Upon initial examination the physician said there was nothing unusual about the mole, Sampson had it removed and tested anyway. Sampson said the doctor told her, “I think you need to give your dog a steak tonight. He was right, it was melanoma.” Kind sir, we’ll take three of the finest cuts of your spectacular fliet mignon.

Did you know that every day items can poison your small dog (and bird). Penny’s seem to be a particular danger to pooches. As for birds, non-stick cookware is said to emit enough toxic fumes to send them into respiratory distress! This is frightening! Get ride of your non-stick cookware, please. If it’s not good enough for birds it’s not good enough for me. Kind sir, please add a set of All-Clad and Le Creuset pots and pans to my registry. Thanks you kindly in advance to advise.

Oh, it’s a kind of stupid groove that you can’t ignore. Oh, it’s a kind of natural small dog fact, sometimes you’re just left to be alone.

Switzerland is known for it’s cheese, chocolate, beautiful mountain vistas and neutrality. In an unprecedented announcement, Switzerland has declared war, war against dog poop that is. The city of Geneva is waging war against the dog poop problem that is plaguing the city. At a press conference on Tuesday, Pierre Maudet, the administrative councilor in charge of security and public works explained, “we have received a lot of mail from residents who are complaining…The dog droppings are particularly disagreeable for people in wheelchairs or parents with strollers. They also present a danger (for pedestrians) who can slip. This is no longer tolerable.” The crackdown will include stronger on the street enforcement and the dispersement of more plastic bags. It must also be acknowledged that Maudet is a member of the country’s Radical party. Have the Radicals turned against small dogs too? This may be the start of the biggest and most ill conceived war since Iraq.

The small dog ate my homework may be a semi-valid excuse after all. Read “Missing a sock? Maybe the dog ate it” for more info.

See small dogs walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight. Heads turning as the lights flashing out it’s so bright. Then walk right out to the fourline track. There’s a camera rolling on her back, on her back. And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine.

I apologized for the abridged nature of today’s post. I hope these photos will suffice until I can return with my ridiculously witty and charming commentary.

There never was a sea level, there was never a star, except the ones I pushed into your body. Believe me when I say that I was every small dog for you. I swear that all my lying was the bravest form of truth.

The LAPD may have dropped the ball with the Iggy/Ellen drama. This is shocking and scandalous as the LAPD are famous for never screwing up anything in the history of police and police departments. I have no idea how they let this one slip through the cracks. Apparently, the LAPD should have never let Marina Batkis take Iggy back in the first place. The Mutts & Moms adoption agency were not licensed to operate business at the time they issued the adoption contract to Ellen, thus making it null and void. Also, Marina Batkis allegedly entered Ellen’s hairdresser’s home under false pretenses. When she arrived at their home she claimed she was there to do a “home inspection.” Does this mean Iggy’s free? Not exactly. More updates soon.

As I have always suspected, new studies show that if you are stressed out, the best way to calm the nerves is to pet a small dog!

Here’s some advice for you and your small dog for the upcoming holiday. My favorite bit comes from Kathy Santo, a New Jersey dog trainer, “‘if a dog truly hates costumes, then owners should let it be’… but most dogs can be trained to enjoy dressing up and being the center of attention if it’s done correctly.” And correctly done it shall be Kathy.

Speaking of small dogs and Halloween, I want to see Carol Wells’ dogs on October 31. According to the Kansas City Star, one of them will be wearing a thong! “This year her therapy-trained Dalmatians, Carmen and Jonah, are going to be Victoria’s Secret and Joe Boxer, respectively…When she takes the dogs on their Halloween rounds of hospitals this year, Carmen will wear a thrift-store Victoria’s Secret bra, size 32A, and black lace panties with a hole cut out for her tail. Jonah will be a Chippendale dancer in a pinstripe vest, white collar, black bow tie and black Joe Boxer underwear with fake money tucked into the waistband. ‘It’s kind of tricky trying to put a pair of panties on a boy dog,’ Wells said.” I’ll believe it when I see it Carol.

It turns out that dog shows are a dirty business. A dog groomer from central Illinois has been charged with intimidation, criminal damage to property and cruel treatment to animals after feeding antifreeze-laced hamburger meat to two dogs owned by a competitor.

I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love, it’s time that I realize, that there are some small dogs with no home, not a nickel to loan. Could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone?

So distraught from all the dog adoption drama, Ellen decided to take a day off from the taping of her show. Things should be back to normal for next week’s broadcasts. Oh, what will the weekend hold??? Save Iggy!!!! PS, that’s a photo of Iggy above.

Pierre Barnoti, executive director of the Montreal SPCA, likened many pet adoption interviews to “the Spanish Inquisition…I’ll be crucified for saying this, but a lot of people are convinced this is the only way of doing it.”

Just in time for the holiday shopping rush, a mall in Michigan is opening its door to small dogs! Iggy wants an Ipod shuffle! 123-go!

Britney apparently requested her Yorkie couriered to her as she shopped in a Beverly Hills department store. I wish they’d go ahead and standardize the sizes on small dog clothing, it’s so hard to tell what’s going to fit.
