Tweet of the Day, How Did This Dog Make This Print? edition.

My wife has been speculating on it for the last few minutes. It’s an interesting question. The prints are in an unusual position, you see.

Democrat Jack Conway: half of my directors AND MY DOG were female!

In answer to a question about a sexual harassment settlement, no less. I’m not even outraged, honestly: just… nostalgic. Jack Conway doesn’t always think this stuff through. Remember, back in 2010, when he thought ‘Aqua Buddha’ was a campaign-killer? Well…

Don’t ever change, Jack Conway. Don’t ever change.

PS: Never refer to your female subordinates and your female pets in the same answer. I am amazed that I have to point this out. And yet, I am not.

Well, *that* was surreal. I heard gunshots coming from outside…

…and open the blinds to discover that a cop had just shut a dog. Something like five times. Then more cops showed up, and then some neighbors, and then they left, and then an Animal Control person came to body-bag the dog, and then they all left. And before you ask; this is a calm, middle-class town house development filled with respectable two-parent families who have largely moved here in order to get away from the excitement that is Southeast DC. So, no, gunplay is not common here.

Note that I have no idea whether the dog had it coming.

PS: I did not take pictures. Maryland cops can get funny about that, and frankly it wasn’t my dog.

You know, I’m not actually going to mock John Kerry for this.

A Lab is a remarkably unpretentious dog for Kerry to have…

…and it’s doing what dogs do. Besides: I might not really like John Kerry, but I don’t hate him enough to gratuitously insult his dog. The courtesies must be, as they say, observed.

“F*ck you, that’s not your dog anymore.”

That was my first reaction to this story:

Two Denver hikers are locked in a bitter battle over the fate of a German Shepard named Missy, who was abandoned by one and then rescued by another at 13,000 feet.

Scott Washburn found the dog bloodied and near-death atop Colorado’s Mt Bierstadt and then organized a search and rescue party to save her.

He wants to keep the dog, alleging that Anthony Ortolani lacks the ability or compassion to care for the creature, which went without food and water for eight days.

I wanted to say that there is no explanation for this.

“This” being, well, this:

But for once a YouTube comment explains it all:

A common situation, they are fleeing from a drunk bear.

…I have decided that this will be the answer.  They are fleeing from a drunk bear.  No further explanation is needed, or indeed desired. So mote it be!
