Yet another shark sighting…
Shaggy and wild-eyed, he stopped her and her dog at the beach.
“Did ye hear of the shark that bit the dog’s tail?”
“Aye, lass, it was a horror… just now.”
He leaned close to her ear and his voice dropped to gargling whisper, a smell of whiskey, tobacco and sweat.
“The shark… Aye, the
shark!” He paused: “Therein lies the tale.”
working dogs of the world, unite!
I don’t like music videos. I don’t like dogs. I do like Rich Hall.
This song was written as a part of one of Hall’s BBC 4 documentaries about the United States… Nashville, I think it was about. You can find at least 3 YouTube video’s based on this song. I think this is the best of the ones I’ve seen.
but someone believes in doG
The real scandal is not when people treat their pets as if they were their children but when they treat their children as if they were pets. Happens all the time.
but some of my best friends are dogs
I don’t like dogs, really. Oh… it’s true: There’s no happy like a happy dog and I’ve known individual dogs with whom I became great friends. But as a species… not so much.
But really, what better way to celebrate the Year of the Dog?
How much is that doggie on the menu?
Only the ectoplasm remains…
