Photos from the 2017 Westminster Dog Show. I do loves me some doggies, but I have to ask - why are these people still engaging in ear cropping and tail docking? It's more than a little barbaric.

A writer decides to wear JNCO pants for seven days to see how people treated him and hilarity ensued. "Classical music and fancy clothes go together like peanut butter and jelly. Incidentally, classical music and JNCO jeans go together like peanut butter and anaphylactic shock."

The GOP is conducting a survey of its members to determine their attitude about the Mainstream Media. I'm now going to suggest a game by which the reader who identifies the most logical fallacies and rhetorical manipulation gets a prize. Bonus points for identifying the "Have you stopped beating your wife" questions.

A little something to bolster your day. This single father is a foster parent, and only takes in children who are terminally ill. He considers it God's work, and I'm not in a position to gainsay him. Also, there's something in my eye.

Just as an aside, I am not allowed to be an organ donor since there is a degenerative prion disease in my family - EVEN THOUGH I have tested negative. It infuriates me that I cannot give blood or donate my organs. grr arrgh

I must have slept through the JNCO craze, cuz I have NO memory of ever seeing those abominations. Also, if you take that survey, Andy Borowitz suggests using impeachtrump@fuckingnow.com as you email address at the end.

On our hike Saturday we saw a guy walking his Doberman which had a short tail and taped up ears.

I bit my tongue, because having had both my cats declawed, I felt I had little room to speak. But it did bother me a lot when we got Kit declawed (we did it before Grandmom moved in, because Kit was constantly accidentally scratching us, and chewed off the nail covers we tried).
