DOG BITES WOMAN IN VAGINA??

THIS BARK GOES OUT TO: Bill BRasky!
A couple of weeks back I mentioned that I’d write bark-outs to “special” vistors… well, here is one of the first (hopefully of many) to a Mr. Bill BRasky. Not only has mr. BRasky, been a faithful follower of DogonaBlog, since it’s inception, he was kind enough, to post the following…

ALL THE BARK THAT’S FIT TO POST
So, I’ve been away for a while, my best friend was out in Orlando for the PGA Merchandising Conference and I was shipped over to a friend’s house who only has dial-up access… but has a lot of reading material I could paw through, so here’s a few things I picked up over the last couple a days.

SKYBARk
poodles_skybark.jpg
L.A., Vegas and Boston, now doggies that like to drink and best friends who like the nightlife have a place to do it all in style. SKYBARk is the brainchild of Brandon Hochman and Ralph Diaz, the inventors of PETaPOTTY, inside “mini-parks” that help best friends potty train puppies and give us some grass to roll around in when our friends are away.

SKYBARk has a fixed location on top of PETaPOTTY’s headquarters on Santa Fe Avenue in L.A. But SKYBARk parties are popping up across the country, every party is also a charitable event, in fact the inaugural event, which took place in March 2006 raised over $4,000 for “New Leash on Life.” Go to www.skybark.com to learn about events in your area or how to bring SKYBARk to your hometown.

DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW
Just about 8 million dogs wind up in shelters every year and of those about 4 million are “euthanized” (i.e. killed). One of the main reasons we end up in this perdicament is due to “behavioral issues” but whose “behavior issues” is what I ask?

So, I hope that you humans who are considering becoming a pooch’s best friend, know that it’s best to do your research before unleashing what may become one of the most rewarding relationships of your life. If not, read my story, FROM THE STREETS OF NEW YORK and see what happens when a human buys a dog without first considering the amount of time, effort and funds it takes to keep us around.

Get the facts straight before you settle down with a dog. Check out “The Everything Guide to Getting a Dog” by Rosencrans Baldwin, that appeared in the Jan. 15 issue of New York Magazine.

DIFFERENT DOGS NEED DIFFERENT CONDITIONERS
Isle of Dogs has recently launched a new line of personalized dog products— over 16 different shampoos and conditioners. Get your best friend to go to their website and create a profile for you and watch your coat go from dull to pawtastic, in two to three washes. They also have products that detangle, sooth irritated skin and reduce shedding.

TUNE IN SOON:
I will be launching my “Viscious Circle of Unconditional Love” soon… this will include my Manifesto on Unconditional Love, Pictures of pooches that have already joined (to join send your dossier and photo to stichthedog@gmail.com), and a line of THUGS4LUV t-shirts and stuff.

PINTS ARE POPULAR, NOT JUST IN THE UK

22 Jan

PASS ME A COLD ONE
Check this out, a pet shop owner in the Netherlands has created a beer made of beef extract and malt for her dogs. In an brief released by the AP a couple of hours ago, Terrie Berenden “consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the nonalcoholic beer, branded as Kwispelbier. It was introduced to the market last week and advertised it as ‘a beer for your best friend.’

‘Kwispel’ is the Dutch word for wagging a tail.”

This isn’t the only company getting in on the “Dog with a Pint” campaign…

Check out “Happy Tail Ale” made right here in the USofA.

Sounds pretty good, but I think I’ll stick with the Champagne!

LABS STILL LEAD THE LIST

16 Jan

Who read the Times today? Which Times, the one that’s the paper of record people… if you’re in there, then you are somewhere… or so they bark… or so they lead us to believe.

In any case, yesterday the American Kennel Club announced a change in their “10 Most Popular Dog Breeds in the Nation,” and accroding to the Times article written by Anthony Ramirez, “Across the country, the most popular dog last year, as it has been for 16 years in a row, was the Labrador retriever, with about 124,000 registrations, or 14 percent of the club’s total.”

He went on to write that the “big news, the club said, was the No. 2 ranking in both the city and the country: the Yorkshire terrier, overtaking larger breeds like the golden retriever and the German shepherd.”

WHERE HAVE ALL THE FRENCHIES GONE?
So, I went to the American Kennel Club website and checked out their list which is broken down by “Ten Most Popular Breeds in the US:”

1. Labrador Retriever
2. Yorkshire Terrier
3. German Shepherd Dog
4. Golden Retriever
5. Beagle
6. Dachshund
7. Boxer
8. Poodle
9. Shih Tzu
10. Miniature Schnauzer

And then the lists are broken down by city… and although I saw bulldog on the list quite a few times I didn’t comes across FRENCH Bulldog, what up wit dat… French Bulldogs and English Bulldogs are not the same… viva de Resistence!!!

english-bulldog.jpg
ENGLISH BULLDOG- He’s ruggedly good-looking but eats fish and chips and drinks pints… so I bet his breath stinks…

frenchie.jpg
FRENCH BULLDOG- I’m so interesting to look at that your eyes glaze over, plus, I eat Violet Pastilles and drink Champagne so my breath smells like a spring-time breeze

BUT THEN, I went to the “Complete List of Top Dog Breed in the U.S.” only to discover that French Bulldogs RANK #36… only 36, come opn FRENCHIES, we can do better than that!

WE SHOULD ALL CELEBRATE MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY

15 Jan

If you believe in human rights, civil rights, service to community, giving back to those who gave to you— unconditional love, peace, logic, reason, respect and equality— than YOU should be celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

RESPECT REVEREND DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.:·
In 1964, ML King Jr. became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize (for his work as a peacemaker, promoting nonviolence and equal treatment for different races).

Dr. King often called for PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY in fostering world peace.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on Jan. 15, 1929 in Atlanta, GA. His father was also a Reverend.

He went to Morehouse College at the age of fifteen— he skipped his ninth and twelfth years in high school.

King graduated from Morehouse in 1948 with a B.A. in sociology and enrolled in Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, PA.

He began his doctoral studies on Systematic Theology in 1951 at Boston University and received his Ph.D. in 1955.

In 1953, at the age of twenty-four, King became pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, AL.

On Dec. 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to comply with the Jim Crow laws that required her to give up her seat to a white man. The Montgomery Bus Boycott, led by King, soon followed. The boycott lasted for 382 days, the situation becoming so tense that King’s house was bombed. King was arrested during this campaign, which ended with a US Supreme Court decision outlawing racial segregation on all public transport.

King was an adherent of the philosophies of nonviolent civil disobedience used successfully in India by Mahatma Gandhi and he applied the philosophy to protests organized by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

King recognized that organized, nonviolent protest against the system of southern segregation known as Jim Crow laws would lead to extensive media coverage of the struggle for black equality and voting rights. Journalistic accounts and televised footage of the daily deprivation and indignities suffered by southern blacks, and of segregationist violence and harassment of civil rights workers and marchers, produced a wave of public opinion that made the Civil Rights Movement the single most important issue in American politics in the early 1960s.

On April 4, 1968, Dr. King was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee.

MLK Jr. Day is the only United States federal holiday commemorating an African American and one of only four to commemorate an individual person.

It was founded as a holiday promoted by labor unions in contract negotiations.

President Ronald Reagan was opposed to the holiday. He relented in his opposition only after Congress passed the King Day Bill with an overwhelming, veto-proof majority (338 to 90 in the House of Representatives and 78 to 22 in the Senate).

6 million signatures were collected for a petition to Congress to pass the law, termed by a 2006 “Nation” article as “…the largest petition in favor of an issue in US history.”

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was observed for the first time on January 20, 1986.

On January 17, 2000, for the first time, Martin Luther King Day was officially observed in all 50 U.S. states.

DO YOU HAVE A DREAM?
got_mlk_martin_luther_king_jr_got_milk_picture.jpg
I do! I dream of a time when RESPECT is more than a word— it’s an ACTION— RESPECT for Women, Men, Animals, the Earth, the Heavens and Hell below. Respect IT and IT will respect YOU!!!

DO YOU THINK RACIAL INEQUALITY STILL EXISTS?
It’s on the surface AND a hidden agenda. Think about Katrina.

MR. WINKLE AND THE CUTENESS MACHINE

11 Jan

THE TEETH COME OUT WHEN MR.WINKLE COMES UP

picture-036.jpg

Yo animals, what up…

So my long awaited opus on why I have, had and am having a beef with the so-called “Cutest Dog in the World,” the evil Mr. Winkle.

First off, What is he? To me he is Public Enemy Number One… and a symbol of cuteness-gone-a-rye.

BOTTOM-LINE: POSHLUST
He’s a dog… not a space alien, cafeteria worker or a fairy. Why is he trying so hard to be ANYTHING other than what he is? For those of you who aren’t familiar with this canine-in-waiting, he rose to fame a couple years ago on the Internet, why? Because he is supposed to be so darn cute… but what is cute, and what does cute mean?

Mr. Winkle is what Nabokov would call POSHLUST, “not only the obviously trashy but mainly the falsely important, the falsely beautiful (another way of saying cute), the falsely clever (what some people might think of my blog), the falsely attractive,” that sums the Winks up and a couple of other headlining grabbing entities I don’t care to name, too!

I believe that both the human and animal societies place too much emphasis on being cute and not enough on having substance. We need more calendars dedicated to Seeing Eye dogs, fire and police dogs, those of us out here in the world working our tails off everyday, in a positive way, not simply by trying to pass as a living stuffed animal.

Think of all those cute humans out there, simply slipping by on their smile or over-dugg dimples… Cute, ugly, frumpy, skinny, fat, Goth, corporate, yupster, over-extended… we shouldn’t define ourselves by what’s on the outside but by the animals we are inside.

JUST SAY “I DON’T THINK SO TO THE CUTENESS MACHINE!”
Next time you see a baby, don’t say to his mommy and daddy, “Oh, how cute.” Say, “How many languages can he speak.” Or if you see a puppy, don’t patronize him, pick him up, look him in the eye and say, “I will respect you my friend because you have a wisdom that I have yet to comprehend.”

Nuff said… however, in the spirit of unconditional love I DO have to give Mr. Winkle PROPS for supporting a lot of charities… That is a sign of substance, right? I don’t know? Maybe we should ask Angelina Jolie or better yet… Jen Aniston… (Which team are you one TEAM STITCH or TEAM WINKLE?)

Who saw Mr. Winkle on TBS’s “Sex and the City” last night? He was there, on a book tour when Carry took her crazy-train-cross-country tip to San Francisco. That cat seems to pop up everywhere… especially in my nightmares.
