How Could You? 2

I wanted to relay a recent piece that I came across; written by Jim Willis in 2001 [1], it is one of the top-cited essays of its kind and is still making the rounds 8 years later: When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me ...

My first painting 4

When I was moving into the new place, I was going through some of my personal stuff and I found some drawings that I did back in 1994 when I was 14 years-old. I haven’t really done any drawings since then, so I figured a good way to decorate the new place would be to ...

Dogs sense sarcasm 1

My dog Mojo took a huge spill tonight. I called her to come to me and she ran full speed ahead toward me on the pavement. Her paw got caught in a sewer drainage and she flipped in the air, landed on her side, and rolled into the curb on the driveway. She got up ...

Flying cat

I just saw the funniest thing. My Jack Russell was play-fighting with my roommate’s cat. Mojo (the Dog) was right in front of Arlow (The cat), so Arlow had this clever idea of averting Mojo. He jumped about 2 feet in the air, cleared Mojo and ran as fast as he could out of my ...

Owned by my dog

It’s quite evident that I’m actually owned by my dog. She has total control over me. I might as well go to the Humane Society and get some id tags for myself, and heck, I might as well buy myself a collar while I’m at it. Here are the top 5 reasons why I’m owned ...
