Snoopy Who?

Day six of the dog days is upon us.  I don’t know about you guys, but I’m getting tired of biting my own ass and scratching for fleas.  Today is dedicated to Snoopy.  For you younger readers, he’s a cartoon beagle who is featured in Charlie Brown comics.  Comics are like cartoons, but they’re motionless drawings and do not usually involve scores of people drawing cells in sweatshops in third world countries.

I hung around those dopey kids. Every chance I got, I’d steal the show. The crowds couldn’t get enough of me.

Lucy and Peppermint Patty were sharing a dressing room, while I had a suite with bowls of M & M’s with all the brown ones picked out. That was my message to Charlie – letting him know where he stood. Chocolate disagrees with me, but I demanded those bowls anyway.

Then one day, Schultzy drops a freakin’ bird into the strip. I didn’t think anything of it. Over night, he’s getting his own dorm posters and endorsement deals. Just like that, I’m second fiddle and bunking with Linus. Freaking Linus!!

That’s it – 110 words!  I’m sure you’re clamoring for more.  So here are the other Dog Days bloggers, who are slaving away at creating their crunchy nuggets that makes its own savory gravy.

What’s In A Name?

It’s day five of this never-ending bloggy dog-themed death march. I know you’re tired of reading them, but it’s half done, so buck up. Skippy!  Today’s pooch is Frasier’s father’s dog, Eddie.

Here’s a little something to think about: There’s a guy. A regular working stiff, a cop actually. Somehow he has two brainiac intellectual snobs for sons, maybe because he gave them snooty, Ivy League names. He named one “Frasier” and the other one “Niles”. Niles?! Fer Chrissakes! You named a kid Niles?! How did you expect he’d turn out?

Makes me wonder who it really was who shot you in your ass, old timer.

The years proved maybe it’s possible to teach an old dog new tricks.

He got himself a hot British physical therapist and an adorable Jack Russell terrier. He had the good sense to name the dog “Eddie”.

At least I’m not the only knucklehead doing this.  Having the rest of these folks along for the ride makes me feel a little less self conscious:

1 Point Perspective – You’re clearly on the fence as to whether or not to christen me a creative genius.  This old post will help tip the scales either way.
