Dogs 131-140

The color on this dude's face + The reflection in his eyes = A pretty easy Borg joke I could make here.

But I'm not here to grab low-hanging comedic fruit. Or at least I don't think I am.

Here's another one of those dogs who can apparently be left waiting outside the door to a grocery store without any sort of leash, just hanging out, waiting for their owners to come back outside. I want to know what the training for that behavior looks like.

I have somewhere a collection of Cthulhu mythos stories written by people other than Lovecraft, and one of them is called "The Hounds of Tindalos."

I have no idea why that came to mind just now.

I would be really curious to know what breed this guy is, because I have a hunch it doesn't exist.

What I'm saying is that I think he was built by taping a bunch of bats together.

I told you I was right about the eyebrows. Or the eyes. Whatever. Just look at that face! My housemate would want to hug him and kiss the top of his head.

What do dogs think when we kiss their heads, anyway? Do they understand it? Or do they think we're just trying to eat them and not being very successful?


I know a lot of people think of dogs as dumb and unobservant or whatever, but I'll have you know this dude saw me coming about a mile away and he wasn't fooled at all. Not even a little bit.

At first glance you'd think these guys are totally mismatched, but for some reason the longer I look at them, the more it makes sense. Like on a cosmic scale.

Did you ever have a bike that you thought you'd locked up pretty securely and then had it up and vanish one day for no good reason?

There was a reason. I'm just sayin'.

"Spare change, ma'am? Spare change?"

Man, what is the deal with the pole he's tied to. Does that part of town have a problem with parking meter theft or something?

Presented here for your consideration is a normal-sized dog in front of a giant-ass huge SUV, maybe trying to pretend it isn't there by acting nonchalant and hoping it doesn't fall on him.
