Sometimes A Dog’s Best Friend…Is Another Dog

This heartwarming video of a stranded dog and his put-out companion has gone viral. Watch as the news crew discovers the battered dog, who runs to them, perhaps happy to be rescued, but then turns back to his friend…who the newsmen think may be dead:

Translation provided by The Blaze:

We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.

He has a collar. He must be someone’s pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.

Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.

Where?

Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.

The dog is protecting him.

Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.

I can’t watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.

Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.

Yes! Yes! He is alive.

He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.

Oh good. He’s getting up.

It’s being  reported that the dogs have been rescued, and both are now recovering at a veterinary clinic.

Everything You Need To Know About Elena Kagan + Kittens On A Slide

I’m not not sure I buy this idea that Kagan is a “wise choice” for Obama because somehow although she’s liberal – as far as the left is concerned, she’s not liberal enough, so he could have done much worse.

Yeah - but. She’s plenty liberal, okay?

Here’s everything you need to know about Kagan:

SCOTUS fight: Boxing Elena

Supreme Court Sleeper Agent

Kagan’s Judicial Hero

Vets Blast the Nomination

Hatch Says Kagan ‘Very Liberal’

Young Kagan’s Thesis on Socialism

How good will Elena Kagan be at influencing the other Justices on the Suprme Court?

I don’t take solace in the fact that Kagan’s “not much of a legal advocate” because her arguments are too radical to sway conservative jurists. At 50, she’ll be the youngest person on the court….we’ll be putting up with her many years to come.
And Gabe over at AoSHQ says, she WILL be confirmed, (wanna bet on it?)

In other news – check out these kittens going down the slide:

Awww! Why don’t my kitties go down our slide like that?

Video: Cute Kitten Prances About, Visits Litter Box

Yes, this means I’m not in the mood to talk about Obama’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan. As much as we’d like to think otherwise, it’s a done deal.

But look at the cute kitty!

One takes comfort where one can.

UPDATE:

I’m not interested in the stupid UK election, either.

“Hide The Decline”, The Movie

Oh my…swiped this from Purple Avenger at AoSHQ. He’s right…it’s harsh:

Can someone explain the dude with the blue mask and the big mouth to me? I …didn’t get that.

UPDATE:

But of course!

Mr. Right informs me that it’s a douche.

Okay, so what’s with the cat?

Conservative cat gives Obamacat one hell of a talking to:


Sorry to all of you disappointed sadists who were hoping that the fur would fly.

Welcome, AoSHQ morons, and Weasel Zippers readers!

Now I feel guilty because I —

Not related at all…

but while I have your attention:

Fox News is running slightly behind the White House in this NPR poll, at the moment:

In White House Vs. Fox News War Of Words, Who Gets Your Vote?

Vote like the wind!


 

I Don’t Get It

First there was this:

obama-on-unicorn

Then just in time for New Years, this:

obama-new-years-unicorn

Now this?:

obama-on-whale1

Weasel Zippers calls it a whalacorn. I call it effed up.

UPDATE:

There really is such a creature:

narwhal

It’s called a narwhal. Why Obama is riding one in a full suit, while riding the unicorns in the buff, is anyone’s guess.

Thanks to Kowboy for the heads up on the narwhal.

Profiles In Villainy: Blog Rival, Proprietors Of Illegal Puppy Farm

I missed this horrifying bombshell when I was doing my opposition research of Weblog Awards rival, Exurban League, earlier this week. I had suspected that they were depraved reprobates, but who could have guessed that it was this bad?!:

reynoldsblender

What do Glenn Reynolds’ puppy smoothies have to do with Exurban League, you ask? Well…who do you think supplies him with the puppies? They admit it openly on their blog:

Ok, time to ‘fess up.

This blog is nothing but a cover operation for an illegal puppy mill. We’ve been supplying Glenn Reynolds with the raw materials for his energy drinks for years now.

Man, it’s good to get that off my chest.

If that isn’t bad enough, a commenter at their site hints that there may be some connection between this person, and  an Exurban league blogger.

O the humanity!

I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings….but I’m a firm believer in the public’s right to know, so they can be  informed voters.

I will investigate further…stay tuned…this could get ugly!

UPDATE:

Disgusting!

They deny none of the charges, yet  smear me as they try to defend their vile, depraved practices!

This blogger, who deceptively calls herself “Nice Deb,” sadly chose the low road of character assassination. Now, her allies have encouraged her divisive politics of personal destruction.

Since our deeply-held beliefs have been dragged into the public square, let me reveal the inductional ritual required of each ExLg contributor. It is deeply regrettable that our sacred rite — the faith of our blogfathers — is being used as a weapon against us. This is exactly the kind of cynical, old kind of politics ExLg hopes to change.

Continue reading and be prepared to be shocked. Keep digging, sickos!

Vote for the  “pro puppy” candidate (me) in the small blog category. Voting starts January 5th.

UPDATE II:

Who’s “The Queen”? She commented over at that haven of unrepentant puppy abusers. I hate her – she’s not voting for me:

Jon,
How could I resist such a heartfelt plea? Now, if you had mentioned kittens…it would’ve been another story. You guys have my vote!

But I think Glenn has had enough protein; better send him some fiber to get his bowels moving.

The Queen

WHAT? Is she some kind of nut?

UPDATE III:

Some pretend pirate who goes by “William Teach”, and is also a finalist for Best Small Blog,  has decided to enter into the fray:

Oh, and since Nice Deb and Exurban League are involved in a blog war (one not nice and the other stuck in the bygone days of puppy blending goodness, you know, 2004), why not vote for the blog with the most guns?

Not nice???

o_rly

He realizes of course, that THIS MEANS WAR!!!

“Not nice“! Of COURSE I’m nice!

For crying out loud, ‘NICE’  is in my name!!! “NICE” DEB!   That proves it!  Can’t the guy read?!

Whatever you do…do not click on Show Me More Inline, Matey >if you know what’s good for you.

Do the right thing…Vote for Nice Deb, the “pro-puppy”, and “anti-Nancy Pelosi in a bikini” candidate for Best Small Blog.

2008 Mugshots Of The Year

The Smoking Gun has their 20 best mugshots from 2008 up. Among the usual dangerous and disturbed wackos, are the inevitable silly goobers who somehow managed to get themselves into a heap-o-trouble. My favorite, The Mad Cow:

cow1

The back-story:

Meet Michele Allen. The Ohio woman, 32, was arrested Saturday night after she got liquored up and began chasing kids and blocking traffic in her Middletown neighborhood. Allen was wearing a cow costume at the time of her arrest, as can be seen in the below mug shots (one of which includes a clear shot of Allen’s udder). A police report does not indicate why she was so dressed. Allen pleaded guilty yesterday to disorderly conduct and sentenced to a month in the local lockup.

More Turkey Pardoning intrigue for you.

This time it’s President Bush on the hot seat. You see, after the 61 years it’s been in practice, someone has finally figured out that the Thanksgiving tradition of the President pardoning a turkey right before he goes to eat one, is  “a charade”, and by God, he’s called the President out on it:

Questioned about the apparent hypocrisy of the practice, White House spokesman Scott Stanzel was unruffled. “You should try your hand at open mic night at the Laugh Factory,” said Stanzel. He promised he would attend the performance.

The Humane Society isn’t amused:

Humane Society Calls the Tradition ‘Ludicrous’

“This is one of those ludicrous traditions that lays bare many of our contradictions towards animals,” said Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States.

***

A spokesman for president-elect Barack Obama declined to comment on the matter.

What do you want to bet that the humor impaired Obama ends the practice?

Hey, How About Some Culture?

Tortured And Mutilated Dogs Being Found In KC Area Cemeteries

I first heard started hearing about this story from my high school kids over a month ago, and I immediately figured it was one of those urban myths kids like to tell. But I looked into it and saw some news reports on the case in the smaller neighborhood newspapers. I’d link to the articles I found then, but they’ve already been archived.

Eventually bigger news outlets started reporting that tortured and mutilated dogs have been getting dumped at cemeteries for the past six months. At least 10 dogs have been found at the Lee’s Summit cemetery, alone.

NBC Action News reported on 3/29:

The Sheriff’s Department said officers were close to catching a suspect and had planned a surveillance operation to nab him or her in the act, but officers said another local media outlet ran the story before they could set the surveillance.

Various breeds have been discovered, Montgomery said in a press release Saturday, and none could be connected with any known missing dog reports.

I almost posted a story on it, but decided I’d wait and see if any more dog carcasses showed up.

One just did:

One of the earlier reports I’d read included a mutilated dog carcass that had shown up in a Kansas City neighborhood, that they thought might have been connected to the Lee’s Summit ones as well.

Something very creepy and evil is afoot in my community. Dog owners need to be on high alert.

Say Goodbye To The Easter Bunny

Say hello to the “Spring Bunny”.

Yes, yes, of course this had to happen. It’s the logical extension of the war on Christmas. If we can’t have Christmas trees, why should we be able to have an Easter Bunny?

Some other non offensive names being used by malls across America are Baxter the Bunny, Peter Rabbit, and Garden Bunny.

Tom Purcell at FrontPageMagazine says:

Peter Rabbit was the name of choice for a Rhode Island school superintendent who, according to ABCnews.com, decided the Easter Bunny ought not visit his school district.

His decision made the ACLU happy. After all, as one ACLU fellow said, schools shouldn’t be in the business of promoting Easter celebrations.

Which leads to some interesting questions: What is the Easter celebration, anyhow? What is the origin of the Easter Bunny?

Lawrence Cunningham, a University of Notre Dame theology professor, said in the San Francisco Chronicle that the Easter Bunny has little to do with religion.
“The bunny is a fertility symbol with no religious connection to Easter,” he said. “The egg, which was popularized in Greece, Russia, and Eastern Europe in connection with Easter, does not have a religious connection to Easter. By taking away the term ‘Easter,’ these symbols to some extent return to their pre-Christian roots as symbols of spring fertility.”

In other words, somewhere along the line, the furry fellow got twisted up with the resurrection of Jesus. Somewhere along the line, he started wearing a vest and handing out eggs and candy. It took a bit of time — hundreds of years or more — for the Easter tradition I knew as a kid to evolve.

But the fascists at the ACLU have no interest in allowing things to evolve naturally. Through their intimidation, holiday traditions are forced to change dramatically overnight.

And what’s the point? The Spring Bunny is just as apt as the Easter Bunny to give your children an unhealthy sugar buzz that will last for days.

It will always be an Easter Bunny to me and mine, no matter what the forces of political correctness choose to call it.

Dog Poop Trail Leads Police To Perp

The unlikely heroes in this crime story are two of the family’s four dogs, a Great Pyrenees named Comet and a chow named Snowball who use the family’s front yard as a dumping ground.

Police were able to find a man accused of drunkenly driving into their yard by following their noses after he walked away through droppings left by Comet and Snowball.

Josue Herrios-Coronilla, 18, was driving his black Camaro on the wrong side of the road, and crashed into the front yard of the McDonald family, while they slept.

“My daughter came running into the room and said, ‘Dad, there are headlights right outside my window.’ “

McDonald called police, and when they arrived, they saw felled fencing, crushed bushes and the inoperable car. The driver was gone.

At this point the driver, drunk, and probably unsteady, fumbled his way through the yard, stepping in big piles of doggie doo, and back to the street. Durham police Sgt. Dale Gunter noticed a fresh shoe print in a pile of poop, and “an odoriferous trail” leading down the street.

I guess that’s what’s called a “fresh lead”.

Gunter followed the path and stopped a white van driving toward him, asking the passenger, Herrios-Coronilla, to get out. The officer smelled his breath. He smelled alcohol.

Then, he looked at the man’s shoes. They were covered in evidence.

A breath test showed Herrios-Coronilla had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11, Gunter said. The legal limit is 0.08. He was charged with driving while impaired and drinking underage, and was released from the Durham County jail Wednesday on $1,500 bail.

The McDonald family’s yard was a little torn up, but now they have a great story to share with friends and relatives for years to come.
