16 jan hyperbole and a half dog
Hahaha, the dog throwing up sequence was the best part of the whole post!! Not surprisingly, the helper dog interpreted the snow as a sign of her imminent demise. Why do I ever read this blog while I'm at work? And with the blanket I thought the same thing, she just loves being under blankets anyways! Does she ever stare off into space like she's doing equations in her head? Neither dog is well-equipped with coping mechanisms of any kind. I'm using "The God of Cake" as my entry for this year's Edible Book Contest. I'm in total agreeal* with the person who said these are some of your best drawings ever. Love it! My dog also did the licking-the-floor-for-no-apparent-reason thing for a while. One of us was beside Salem as he slept peacefully. He failed the test where you put your dog facing in two gates forming a vee (like this >). Welcome to the West Coast! It is weird reading her stories about her dogs, but she's also so very, very abnormal. As a teacher, I try to assess each student in the best way for that student. LOVE IT!!! I had a dog who didn't understand the concept of fetch. As a condition for allowing us to have dogs in our rental house, our landlady made us promise that we wouldn't let the dogs scratch the wood floors. Didn't see the problem until she went to eat or drink and the cone hit the ground, but her mouth was so far up the cone she couldn't get anything. Barking! Ohh! I found out she was blind and this leads me to believe she is a genius because she does things no blind dog should be able to do, like get food from the middle of the kitchen table (she is only 13 lbs so this is quite a feat.). I'm not sure what was special about my right knee...only he knows. meow. Licking is actually a nervous tick, kinda like chewing your nails or the like.If she was kept in a kennel for much of her puppyhood, it is very possible that she hasn't learned how certain muscles work, or the muscles have been under-developed. Thank you. Welcome to Oregon!!! 2 teaspoons cinnamon. LOL! it doesn't matter if dogs are dumb, she sounds like a good buddy. I am so glad you wrote about simple dog again! This post simultaneously made me laugh and also was terribly sad, because I know how badly dogs want to please their owners. Thanks so much for the creativity of You, Allie! That burning man is made of epic. You get the idea. First, I had to make her sit, which was a test in and of itself. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. We decided that it would probably be best to bring the dogs inside. Every time we put a blanket on our girl, she lies down because THAT'S WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE UNDER A BLANKET. After a while, you convince yourself you won't even notice it, it's so regular and consistent. :). I love that dog's expressions (in your drawings), it makes me love his retardedness. Glad you survived the move. when my roommate and i first moved into our apartment, her dog started territory pooping.almost every day, in front of the fireplace,she'd poop in little crop circles.and now,every time something changes (if we get another dog staying with us,for example) she'll crop circle territory poop throughout the house. Still, I was living under the assumption that maybe my dog just had a hidden capacity for intelligence - that all I had to do was work hard enough and maybe she'd wake up one day and be smart and capable like a normal dog. I don't know how the weather is in Bend, but at Pacific University (nearish to Portland/Hillsboro area), it's been raining for about three solid days with no breaks.My mother's cat did something similar when she moved from Portland to Denver - something that helped a lot was feeding her peanut butter and putting butter between her toes. I hope you guys are settling in well in OR <3. Enjoy Oregon! SO hysterical! :). Every single picture series made me laugh until I cried. Glad to hear your helper dog is adjusting. I guess it was just depressed forever. Which I cannot provide when I am the only one in the car and I'm driving. We offered the toy to the dogs. So for, what, 4 days? I don't think I can handle real dogs right now. Please have celebratory nachos. Oh....my abs hurt really badly now. The picture of the dogs sprinting around is what did me in. My mother knows nothing.Allie, you are brilliant! However, I think that dog intelligence might wrap around, because there are times when my dog, who seems smart most of the time acts completely retarded like we've never met. Once again, I laughed until I cried. It is easy to imagine that a dog who has recently experienced a dramatic upheaval of its formerly safe and predictable life might not react well to suddenly having strange objects attached to all four of its feet. *sigh* Mine is capable of scaring himself with his own tail. All the best to you and your pup! )My bf and I would be sitting in the kitchen when Salem would run in from the living room as if something demanded his immediate attention. This made me laugh so. Aww, I thought my dog was retarded when I got her too. Culminating in tears streaming down my face...after which all I could utter was a strangled "Allie" - which was immediately understood and a battle to the computer ensued so others could react in much the same way. Your blog is great, I personally believe that your "Cake vs. Pie" entry should be archived in the Library of Congress so that it may be used as a citable reference. It's got company with my very sweet, yet kind of dumb dog. I know this because my boyfriend Duncan and I moved from Montana to Oregon last month.
