"There seems to be no job dogs were asked to do that they didn’t figure out how to do capably, and if only they had thumbs we’d probably have taught them to drive us around by now."
Hah!  If dogs had thumbs, by now they would most likely be the masters and us humans would be the faithful (maybe) pets.

Hehe, yup, that's pretty much how I figure it.

I figure that's an absolute slam dunk if cats had thumbs. The only exception would be if they had eaten us first.

If they had thumbs?! Ha!  If the driver's seat is empty...ours is in it. He knows...somehow...he knows.

At first I thought...ah...they're not that good. Then it hit me...if they can play anything at all...they have me beat!!! (Two Golden Retrievers playing the Flea Waltz on a special piano.)

Maryland offering $200 gift cards for dead snakehead fish

They sound really tough...able to survive 4 days on land?!!

The method on how to get paid sounds like a grand opportunity for fraud:
To qualify for one of the $200 gift cards and an assortment of other prizes, all you have to do is upload a photo of yourself with a dead snakehead to the DNR's Angler's Log site.

Cool. As long as you wouldn't get kicked by it. Ouch ouch ouch. 

That might make a good playmate for our puppy...except it weighs twice as much.

Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Yeah, that's no dog, that's a horse and not a shetland at that. Can't recall the exact pound conversion but I think it was something in the neighborhood of 230 pounds.

If I remember correctly a stone = 14lbs, e.g. - 252lbs. for George.  A handsome fella but I wouldn't wanna feed him.

Or, ahem, clean up for him. You'd need a wheelbarrow.

A neighbor has one here, not as big as George.  They used to have two that we saw dragging the wife around the neighborhood on occasion.  What is funny is to hear that dog bark.  Sounds more like a big bass drum than anything else I can think of.  It has to be totally distracting to anyone inside the house.
