Day 95 - D is for Dog

Dog: canid; especially : a highly variable domestic mammal (Canis familiaris) closely related to the gray wolf - Merriam Webster

I train dogs. I like dogs. I call people dogs (both the male and female versions). I listen to Snoop Dog (on occassion). I own a book of poetry called, "Love is a Dog From Hell". I have a dog shaped piggy-bank. I love the book/movie "Marley and Me", but even better is the book, "The Art of Racing in the Rain", told from a dog's perspective. I own the dog movies, "Lady and the Tramp" and "Lilo and Stitch" - which isn't about a dog, but Stitch is at one point referred to as dog. There are days I surely end up smelling like a dog, and maybe even look like a dog. I've been sick as a dog. I believe that every dog will have it's day. I really don't enjoy the dog days of summer. I love hot dogs, but dislike most designer dogs. I'm sure I've barked up the wrong tree a time or two. I let sleeping dogs lie. I believe you can teach an old dog new tricks. At times, I work like a dog. And since I'm dog tired, I think I'll leave my readers with this giggle from "The Farside"...


  1. Clever! I like to look at dogs but they seem like such a hassle! Maybe not hassle, but like having a child... which is why I'm a cat-lady :)

  2. Oooo--and I love the song Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine. Nice flow in your post!

  3. @ Michelle - I have two cats and currently don't own a dog. I agree, they are worse then children at times. Except...you can legally put them in a cage for extended (but humane) periods of time!

    @ Heather - Thanks! (And I'll have to check out that song!)

  4. You don't have 101 Dalmatians? I prefer the cartoon original, myself.

    My dog is my running partner, but I prefer cats to dogs.

  5. Well Ive spent the last hour browsing A-Z bloggers and seen a few posts about dogs, but yours is by far the best. So many Dog related things in one post. If I had a gold star I would give it you. Glad to see your getting a following you deserve ;)


  6. @ Erin, I don't own the spotted cartoon, but agree it's better then the "live" version!

    @ John - THANK YOU! : )
