Rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on gin and juice. Laid back, with my mind on my small dog and my small dog on my mind.

Ellen and Portia had no idea what they were getting themselves into with Iggy! After a tearful plea in her show yesterday, for the Mutts and Moms adoption agency to return the pup to her hairstylist’s family, Marina Batkis and Vanessa Chekroun from the adoption agency have received voice mail and e-mail threats of death and arson! Batkis rejected Ellen’s plea to return the pup to her hairstylist’s homes. According to CNN, an attorney representing the adoption agency said of Batkis, “she is adamant that she is not going to be bullied around by the Ellen DeGenereses of the world…” He went on to claim that, “they are using their power, position and wealth to try to get what it is they want.” Time to make popcorn and cozy up next to the old telly, I can’t wait to see how this one plays out. Poor Iggy, will all the attention of fame and fortune take its toll?

A word of warning to everyone, keep your friends close and your small dogs closer, or you could end up like John and Megan Hulme. Their dog Bear went-a-missing over the summer and then two months later they received a call from a woman who, after seeing a missing dog ad the Hulme’s had posted on-line, believed she was fostering their pup Bear. Joyous reunion???? Think again! The agency that rescued Bear had already adopted her out to another family, “the dog they believe is Bear is named Latte and is living with another family.” Talk about salt in the wounds.

A smart pup on Long Island is lucky to be alive today, after he survived a fire that engulfed his home. How did he do it? Magic of course!

In other magical news, a little girl in San Antonio is teaching Jack Russell Baloo sign language.

I’ll drink to that:

    They sound like monsters at that adoption agency!

    Those people need to get a grip!! The object is suppose to be finding good loving homes for orphaned animals. Evaluate on a case by case basis and if they can’t do that then they don’t need to be in the business to start with. The children love the dog, the dog loved the new home, they belong to a good family, so else do you need???? The people of Moms and Mutts need to remember when they were small and had a puppy of their own. It’s discrimination to say the home isn’t good because be there are children under a certain age there. M and M is just riding Ellen’s fame to create a spotlight for themselves. Give the dog back….

    I’m not sure what I find more disturbing, the dog situaton, or the video. All kidding aside, it’s very sad. From what I understand those Brussels can be little monsters, but supposedly get along well with other animals. Doesn’t Ellen have other dogs?/How do they relate to the cats?

    Dear Sharon:

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    Dear Mike:

    According to the American Kennel Club, Brussels griffon are intelligent, alert, and sturdy pups. According to Pet Place, The Brussels griffon is a dog with lots of personality and an almost human facial expression. On first glance, the griffon appears to have an elfin or monkey face and is a devoted family pet…The Brussels griffon can do well with other pets in the family if raised with them.”

    Ellen has never cried so hard. Ridiculous. That dog has no idea what drama was created over its right to a home.

    Dear Michele:

    If only Ellen would cry so hard over foster children and their right to homes. Do you think Ellen would give away a child she adopted if it didn’t get along with her (evil) cat? Just playing devil’s advocate, everyone knows we DON’T have a problem with child welfare in this country.
