Dog thread! The best dog I ever had was a Boston terrier mix, named MechGodzilla(MG for short). I found him running down the side of the road in the middle of nowhere while I was delivering a pizza. I scooped him up and made my last few deliveries with him in the back seat. He looked like he was half starved and smelled like he had been rolling around on a dead animal carcass. Took him home and immediately gave him a bath(he hated baths for the rest of his life and acted like you were trying to boil him alive if you tried to put him in the tub). His first meal was some steak fingers my grandmother had cooked. He was my best friend after that meal.

This is Petey, aka Lucinay's Peter. Son of Pal, The Wonderdog, and star of stage and screen.

Max Factor used to do his makeup, and was Factor's first client when he arrived in Hollywood.
Yes, that really is Max Factor.

Pete was kicked off the series after a scandal involving helping students cheat on the SATs.
www.bestfitpetsit.com

With his career in the toilet, he tried his hand at singing, but having only Jinglebells" in his repertoire, his fame faded quickly
www.sitcomsonline.com

A series of unfulfilling odd jobs followed.
www.pitbullsontheweb.com

Finally, in the depths of despair, he turned to drugs, and alcohol.

Petey was later assassinated.

I am in for a Dog Day. Dogs do more service for people and save more lives in a day than cats do in a year and that is allowing for cats rodent control (no one ever mentions they are also wiping out songbirds at the same time).

Balto and Togo were Siberian huskies. As I recall Balto had some wolf in him. Regardless the American Kennel Club did not recognize the breed until 1930. Lassie may have been purebred, though Lassie was always a male. [There were more than one.]

Damn this dust!

That is the only time I ever saw my fiance cry. He had a little tear and I was bawling!


Well, get a new box of Kleenex and read this Japanese fairy tale. The version I read as a child was a little different, more detailed and imaginative, but the gist is the same.

I own cats now, but my family always had dogs when I was growing up and I have a very soft spot in my heart for them, too. So, for instance, even though I know Groening and Co. went back and tried to make Futurama's "Jurassic Bark" less of a Debbie-downer in "Bender's Big Score," it still makes me sad.
