Pet Blogging

One of the things I love about the blogosphere is people posting pictures of their pets. Most of it is cats but we also have dog lovers out there. This is a pic of our last guy that died in 2001 but will never be forgotten. We tortured him at Christmas and he enjoyed every minute of it. His name was Gorby. When I lived in England the tabloids nicknamed Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev Gorby. I thought that sounded like a name for a dog instead of a President. So when I got a dog I named him Gorby. I also had a cat named Indira Gandhi but that's another story.

I had some of the best and worst times of my life with Gorby. When I was dating Mrs G I introduced them and he went up to her for a belly rub then burped in her face. Of course she fell in love and we were married shortly after. He was an escape artist always digging his way out of the yard to go cruising for bitches. One time I was out looking for him and glanced in my rear view mirror to see him chasing my truck. So I stopped and he hopped right in. He loved to go for a ride. Another time he found his way to a dairy farm and rolled in manure. Lucky for him I had a pick up to take him home instead of tieing him to the bumper to get him home. Another time when I took him to the park and he disappeared and after spending 3 or 4 hours looking for him I went home to find him on the porch. And so on. So many memories.

Coming soon will be the adventures of Humphrey and Ptolemy.
Other pet bogs I enjoy are Ol' Froth and Carl documenting the adventures of Thumpber. If he would just let the cat out of the bathroom. Jacq has some cats but you might not get to see them because she has a super secret site. Another Monkey tells us a love story about Haley.
But nothing can top T-Bogg's Thursday Night Basset Blogging.

You admit to torturing a dog and have the nerve to ctiticise Romney.

"It Was Just At Christmas", He Maintains

Cute dog, great stories. But he never got to experience 55+ miles-per-hour on the open highway while riding in a carrier strapped to the roof of a station wagon!

I won't even let our guy stick his head out the window for fear of getting hit by a rock or bug at 50+ miles an hour and he wears a seatbelt so he doesn't bounce around.

NG, I think I'll do the pet thing on Saturday. I'm still trying to figure out my new digital camera but should be able to post pics from it by the weekend.
