Ides of Liam
Today is my dog's 4th Birthday! Happy Birthday, Liam. This is a copy of the amazing portrait that my kick-ass friend, Laura painted. She has painted many other portraits which you can see here (and you should).
As for Liam, he is getting some bacon tonight from the fancy organic butcher shop and a new toy. He is going to be one happy terrier! Good boy!
Liam Gets A Presidential Nod from One CA Rep.
One CA Republican (not me, am Democrat) voted for my doggie, Liam. He did actually write him in as a protest, but we covered it so my last name doesn't appear here.
Liam Kicks Off Weekend Relaxing
Friday Dog Blogging
Liam says TGIF!
Let's take a look at O-hi-O, shall we?
A man shot his dog in the head. Charming.
the dog didn't die and was rushed to an emergency vet.
Poochie couldn't be saved. :(
The owner aka asshat was sentenced.
His sentence was reduced by agreeing to wear a Safety Pup outfit and visiting grade schools.
WAR ON OLD NAVY
Ok, so Old Navy had this bogus mascot contest where you can enter your dog. Right, so I entered Liam with this picture. He is a neighborhood favorite, after all!
They held four fake casting calls where one of the judges even had the nerve to ask several questions about him, take his picture with her handheld and say that she wanted him. WHATEVER!
So, he is not selected -- I can live with that part, but then I get this email to vote for one of the six semifinalists. Ok, again not so bad. But, then I click over and the dogs that they "claim to have selected" are the same ones that ran in the ads for the contest!
The contest is/was BOGUS! Boycott Old Navy and their crappy clothes. Their will be another battle posted soon.
LGBTs Love Dogs, Too
A Swedish court imposed a fine on a petshop owner who refused to sell a dog to a woman once she discovered that the woman is a lesbian. WTF?
It is great to see this discrimination handled in a Court of Law. It sends that the signal that we are all equal. Yes, we are all equal. Join the campaign for Human Rights Campaign.
2006 Best in Show
Woof! Woof! Liam is pleased to announce that a fellow terrier has won Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show.
