Dog eat Dog

It seems we can’t get away from the lipstick, the pit bull and the dog eat dog atmosphere of the circus of American presidential elections! To ease the general anxiety here are some pictures of real dogs and cats.

Dogs are hot these days—many people prefer them to having children. They say when you get a dog you are buying yourself a tragedy…

I am not a cat person – I had to look hard in my archives to find these two pictures.

If I had a choice I would have loved to have a beagle like this one who will always be my favorite dog or a border collie. Maybe in another life…

  1. Sincere congratulations to a true artist!
    Vivid proofs that life and art do contribute to one another.

    I remembered a French cartoon where a blind man
    begs for money and his dog collects the money in a hat in his mouth. To the policeman who asks if he has a permit to beg, the blind-man answers: “Ask the dog! He is the one who is collecting the money!”

    Once I had nothing to do and wandering around the Central Station in Stockholm, among the crowd of passengers, I barked, quite loudly.
    Hundereds of people laughed and a few dogs responded to me as well.
    Dogs can be inspiring.

  2. Ségolène Royal, candidate malheureuse à la dernière élection présidentielle française, était interrogée ce soir sur la chaîne de télévision TF1. Elle était très bien habillée, très bien coiffée, très bien maquillée, et donc beaucoup plus sexy que Sarah Palin, car beaucoup plus intelligente. Ségolène Royal peut, dans de telles circonstances, être un archétype de la femme française.
    Si j’en avais la possibilité, je jouerais pour Mme Palin l’air de Lou Reed : Hey girl, take a walk on the wild side…

  3. What a nice surprise to find my love of 11 years among your favorite four legged animals………. Recognized the rug as well ….look forward seeing more of your beautiful pictures……..always FORMIDABLE!!!

  4. My strong preference is for a Dog Kiss Dog world ()

    Sadly the American presidential elections have way too much at stake to be simple entertainment, or one could laugh, and crying is not allowed, yet.

    Seems to me that if we rescue a dog we prevent at least one tragedy and in their presence we get anxiety reduction as an extra bonus. A win/win situation all around.

    When suddenly I got it in to my head that it might be fun to take a dog along rides on my scooter, and I could see it, visually, I dreamed of a white, hypoallergenic, non-demanding, not yappy lapdog. What I ended up with is my Schnuggliputz-Isabella-girl that grew to a good mid-sized dog looks like a little lamb and sheds plenty. But would I want to miss her in my life, no!

    There is a right time and place for everything. I hope you will get to have a canine companion, or two eventually, and no matter the breed it will be perfect, like mine is. And you will not treat it like the child that never was, but the dog that is!
