I Think I've Found A Drinking Buddy!

But I don't care much for Bud Light, I prefer Guinness.

Canine Philosophy

Cairo is an amateur philosopher. While we are at work she lounges at home on her bed contemplating life's many mysteries. When in repose she resembles a stoic. But when we come home she loses her calm demeanor and jumps for joy.

Here is some dog wisdom she'd like to share...

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
-Ann Landers

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.
-Will Rogers

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
-Ben Williams

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves
-Josh Billings

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
-Andy Rooney

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.
-M. Acklam

Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate.
- Sigmund Freud

I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.
-Rita Rudner

A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three
times before lying down.
-Robert Benchley

Anybody who doesn't know what soap tastes like never washed a dog.
-Franklin P. Jones

If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have
known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.
-James Thurber

If your dog is fat, you aren't getting enough exercise.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to $3.00 a can. That's almost $21.00 in dog money.
-Joe Weinstein

Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul -- chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!
-Anne Tyler

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
-Robert A. Heinlein

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
-Mark Twain

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, 'Wow, you're right! I never would've thought of that!'
- Dave Barry

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
-Roger Caras

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your
pocket and then give him only two of them.
-Phil Pastoret

Cairo in the library. Unfortunately she hasn't yet learned to read.

Here's Cairo, the most spoiled dog in the universe, yawning on a Saturday morning:

I get up early, even on Saturdays. By the time I make coffee and return to the bedroom, Cairo has taken my spot and is almost completely under the covers.

Cairo and Rocky

Here's Cairo and her uncle Rocky, a ten-year old black pug.

We tried to get a picture of them together but they couldn't relax.

Hanging Out In The Kitchen

What are you looking at? While you're busy playing around with that camera there's a Boxer down here that wants some more steak and beer...

Boxers Spotted at Crufts

Check out the Crufts Dog Show

caption from bbc:

"Once through the stalls I met Nick Hagan and his wife, who have travelled from Lincolnshire with their Boxer dogs. "It's become a tradition, each year I have to win a toy dog from one of the stalls, says Nick, "if I didn't my dogs would be upset."

Cairo has a little plush Boxer. But it's too nice to be chewed on. It sits up on our bookshelf.

The Morning After

Here's Cairo on Sunday morning, after sipping some Guinness the night before.

I got out of bed to make coffee and Cairo immediately took my spot.

Hangovers suck.

A Boxer That Likes To Party

Cairo has developed a taste for beer.

Last night I caught her drinking Guinness out of my pint glass. Here she is trying to snatch our friend's beer:

If she keeps this up we might have to recommend a 12-step program.

Meet Cubby

Meet my new blogging friend Cubby the Boxer. He has his own blog called Cubby Goes Digital. He travels the Austin, Texas area trying to find homes for Boxers in need.

Go say hello and thank him for his great work at rescuing Boxers.
