Time to vote

The link below will take you the Union of Concerned Scientists web site where you can vote to select the cartoon for the coveted calendar cover position for 2010. This year's contest was restricted to previously UCS published cartoonists. We were given a list of topics from which to choose. As you can see I was taken by the issue of whistle blowing...a noble and dangerous practice.

Old dog tricks

I had the pleasure this morning of introducing my old friend Will, visiting from South Carolina, to my four-tennis-balls-at-a-time canine buddy Cassie. As you can see they got along great.

Pot of Gold

I took this picture a few years ago from my office in the back of the house. Some day I will go out the back gate and brave the cow pies to go find that pot of gold.

Golden Retriever Monument

For those of you that don't hang around with golden retrievers regularly, take it from me - they have the habit of sitting on your foot, pinning you to the spot while they lean against you. There you are, totally immobilized and ready to pet, scratch and dote on them until such time as they feel fit to let you go. God help you if you're running late for a bus.

Someone at the dog park the other day asked what we should call a group of golden retrievers - given that we have a "murder of crows" and a "parliament of owls", etc. I suggested we call them a "lean of golden retrievers". The idea was well received.

I never knew...

I never knew my mother was a cartoonist. I just came across this cartoon that she did in 1995. Besides being right-on-the-mark funny, it has a lot of character somewhat in the style of Jules Feiffer. RIP mom. You really nailed me with that one.

Puppy love

My buddy Cassie (of the four-tennis-balls-in-the-mouth fame) is now a big sister with the arrival of KT (pronounced Katie). This totally adorable puff ball is not destined to be small for long. I almost think there should be a law against being this cute.
