The dog wasn't his?

Gotta admit, that is sort of more disappointing than Trump trying to overthrow the government.

That first ad was brilliant. It was charming and disarmed a whole bunch of potential arguments about Warnock. It's along the lines of Regan's line about age in his debate with Walter Mondale: "I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience." Mondale later said he knew he had lost the debate, and probably the election, in that moment.

Right?

If Kelly loeffler weren't awful at everything, she would've run ads pointing that out.

If he could pass the Bar exam, he'd be a legal beagle.

My uncle had a beagle named Barney when I was a child. I remember one thanksgiving in the late 80s where Barney jumped up on the table and started shredding through the food.
Very sweet dogs, highly food motivated.

I particularly like his dissertation on the quality of right wing discourse in this country. Very accurate, and to the point.

I've had beagles all my life. This is my current beagle as a pup at the driving range she would sniff out and dig up buried golf balls and then bring them back to me. She's two now and just as nice a dog as you could hope to meet. I've heard of aggressive beagles but I can't imagine what you would have to do wrong to make that happen.

When I was a preschooler, my favorite book was 'Barney Beagle'.  I had my mom read it to me 634,276 times.

I've always enjoyed Red Baron pizza. For frozen pizzas, it was better than most.

I wish the presidential debates could have been sabotaged by letting some staffer's labrador loose on the stage. Simply showing the human vs inhumane differences right there on live TV would have clinched the election instantly. People would be -horrified- to see Trump scowling at a dog.

Was there some nationwide dough shortage that caused them to make that pizza out of crackers?

Warnock's 3  dog ads can be seen in this thread. I like the poop one the best.

Severely abuse them.  I had two rescues who had been abused to the point they were ruined.  One was aggressive.  The other would run from an man who picked up a newspaper or wore a baseball cap.  We gave them a couple good years, before they died from back injuries.

Beagles are high in protein. Nutritious and delicious.

Reading these comments while listening to "Death or Glory" from Irom Maiden. Getting a kick out of the thread.

I can second that.

My dog went crazy for any food. You immediately were reminded how much of a hound he was because he's get all excited and end up howling. Didn't matter what it was, he wanted it.

Also, he ate a damn rabbit.

So during the summers when it would rain, he had a caged off space under our deck/porch area, where his house was. One day we noticed the old guy didn't come out to the yard after the rain. So I go down to check on him, and turns out he had accidentally latched himself in. But it didn't matter. The guy is just laying there, stomach bulging, hair on his lips and a satisfied expression on his face. And next to the side of the cage nearest the yard, a dismembered rabbit foot - all that was left of the creature.

I guess it got too close to his cage and he caught it, and somehow managed to get it through the chain link and eat it. All of it. Crunched up the bones and all. He digested it fine too.

But that was the most smug, self-satisfied expression I've ever seen on a dog. I wasn't even mad. He just laid there all day and happy. Didn't see him come out until the next day.
