No peace, no peace I find, just this old, sweet song, keeps small dogs on my mind.

I hope every one had a wonderful holiday full of small dog love.

So this is old news now, but Michael Vick has headed off to jail to get a jump start on his prison term. He spent Thanksgiving at the Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw, Va. and enjoyed a pretty tradish meal of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, rice and sweet potato pie. He is scheduled to be officially sentenced on December 10. Big money Michael, come on big money! Stop on $400 and a trip to the Bahamas.

Willie Nelson recently recorded a spot for tv supporting an anti-dogfighting bill in Georgia. Meanwhile, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kelly Ripa and Nathan Lane are helping to raise awareness for puppy mills this holiday. A press release issued by the US Humane Society says that these stars are not putting puppy mill cruelty on their holiday gift list. Dear Santa, I’ll take a baker’s dozen of small dogs, hold the puppy mill cruelty.

Michelle Maginnity, a psychology researcher from Canterbury University believes that dogs can read minds.

Congratulations to Oliver, a bullmastif who won the RSPCAs dog of the year competition.

I’ll drink to that:

The small dog revolution will not be televised.


via Dog & Puppy Central

It certainly won’t be televised and, with the state of things, it may not even get blogged about. I wish I could blame my absence on the writers’ strike, or even the stagehands’ strike, but, I regret to inform, due to unfortunate circumstances, (aka a job), I have been forced to scale back operations for the time being.

Please continue to send in small dog moments of brilliance, this site would not be possible without you (and small dogs) especially during times like these.

If you are the betting type, and I know you are, you should check out Rescue Train’s celeb pooch art auction! Resuce Train is a non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to eliminating animal suffering and euthanasia through hands-on rescue work, education and awareness. They are also making it ever so slightly easier for you to get your hands on some art work created by Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore, Jim Belushi, Carmen Electra, Sean Hayves, Amanda Peet…and their pups! Thanks for sharing that Matthew.

Soon, consumers may have the same protection from faulty puppies as they have from faulty cars. Something about puppy lemonade.

Small dogs come to those who wait.

Dear friends…my dearest, sweetest friends:

What is going on in the world? Time has fallen back, the writers are striking and Smalldogarific is nowhere to be found. I feel as though I am letting you (and small dogs) down. I hope this post will make up for my negligence. Just remember though, if we don’t stand together we stand alone! In solidarity. In answer to your question Steve, Smalldogarific is now on an indefinite hiatus until the writer’s hug out their differences. Okay that’s not true, but I would like to extend a big thanks to all my adoring readers have stepped in to make today’s posting possible,

Like, this gem, that Steve himself sent in!

That dog doesn’t fly off the table gracefully like my air hockey pucks do.

And, Stephanie wrote in to alert me about the meet-up of the century! Boo Boo, the world’s smallest dog, met Gibson, the world’s tallest dog for Guinness World Records Day 2007.

And, Michele, sent me this mind-blowing blog featuring puppy jewelry. That’s Cupcake modeling the “Earth Dog” line. The necklace even features a vegan “leather” cord! I agree Michele, Cupcake DOES look good in that necklace.

Friends don’t let friends with children get small dogs.

A man on a Virgin Atlantic flight from Chicago to London’s Heathrow broke out in song to muffle the barks of a small dog that he smuggled onto the flight. “A Virgin worker said: “We thought we had a drunk on our hands because he was singing so loudly. But he was just trying to drown out the sound of his dog.”” The pup was permitted to run up and down the aisles during the flight.

If I should stay, I would only be in your way. So I’ll go, but I know, I’ll think of you every step of the way. And I will always love small dogs. I will always love small dogs. Small dogs, my darling small dogs. Hmm.

Sitting at the all-night, picking up a pen, and I’m afraid, was there any good reason, that I had to go, when all I know is I am all alone again. And you are the small dog, and I am the heart land, and I can say that’s a very good reason, that I had to go, but now all I know is I can never come back, and I will never go back.

I am sure that every is weary today from all small dog costume magnificence of yesterday, so, I will keep this short, to give you eyes a rest.

One very excited/amazing thing I need to report on is the discovery of Funagle (pronounced fu-na-gle), the new board game that people and their dogs enjoy together! Can your small dog do the Moonwalk, The Wave and the Hollywood Kiss? This blows spin the bottle right out of the water!
