Today my human has to finish writing up a research project and won’t have a lot of time for doggie news. So I decided just to do a lightning round. Here goes:
Molly at www.MollytheWally.blogspot.com put in a link to Sloth Week on TV. Wow! We don’t have any of those around here. But we do have scary beavers with big sharp teeth! Apparently there was one in Irondequoit Creek and it attacked a guy in a kayak! Here’s a link to the story:
Our Australian friend Charlie at www.charliedownunderinoz.blogspot.com posted a picture of some big white birds called corollas that he saw. Our Uncle David went to Australia on a business trip recently and sent this picture of white birds outside his hotel. Wow!
The biggest birds we have around our house are crows and grackles. Speaking of grackles, they have suddenly become very quiet and secretive now. I think they’re finally done nesting. We occasionally get one in our window feeder. Here's a not very good photo of the mayor of Grackletown himself, Honorable Effluvium Scatterstool.

I shouldn’t say we don’t get any big birds here at all. They just don’t show up in our yard. Here’s a picture of some Canada Geese blocking traffic near a mall in Rochester recently. By the way, these geese are also known to carpet bomb entire parking lots with their droppings!
Now it’s time for The Daily Bone food column.
Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens here with some good cook-out advice. Always watch closely when your humans are grilling hot dogs. Almost always, one of those delicious sausages manages to roll off the grill and onto the ground. If you have been sitting patiently, emanating the proper amount of cuteness, you will possibly get to eat that one.
|Yum! Grilled hot dog seasoned lightly with dirt and grass!|
Oh, and sorry I’ve been neglecting my political commentary again lately. So here’s one:
I’ve been watching the news about what is going on in Iraq. It seems I will never figure out why humans are so mean to each other. Why do humans think it’s OK to hurt and kill others just because they think differently about religion?
Joey dog can’t figure it out either, and pointed out that even the movie he was watching was filled with fighting and explosions. All I can say is, life is tough enough already. Think of how much better things would be if everyone just decided to get along. Rather than scheming how to blow someone else into smithereens because they have a different point of view, figure out ways to help each other instead. Just saying …
And that's a memo.
