The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show came to Madison Square Garden this week and this year we went for both days. I am not a big fan of breeders and encourage people to get a dog from a shelter or breed rescue site but politics aside, the show is a heck of a lot of fun. If you are interested in a breed rescue dog you can find lots of information here.
The winner, as you know, was a 15″ beagle named UNO. I got a nice shot of a beagle, who could be the winner (after a while they all look alike to me). You can see the dog in the top row, middle, of my first of two montages. There were so many dogs I probably could have made five or six more montages.

Dog Show # 2. See if you can find my little ‘best in show’ guy, Benny.

– My cousin in CA sent me this video of a homeless man in Santa Barbara and his pets. You can see these guys every week working State Street for donations. The animals as you can see are pretty well fed and mellow. They are a family. The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn’t have to walk so much (like the dog and himself). At some juncture the rat came along and as no one wanted to eat anyone else, the rat started riding with the cat and often on the cat. The dog will stand all day and let you talk to him and admire him. The Mayor of Santa Barbara filmed this clip and sent it out as a Christmas card.

– This is a sad human story with a happy ending dog story. You might have seen this story on the national news. It is a feel good story, out of all places, Iraq.

– Since this post is all about going to the dogs, here’s Keith Olbermann’s second in a series of special comments about the FISA fiasco.

–  If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas. The House Democrats finally found their balls and stood up to the Repugnants on this FISA fiasco. Check out this comprehensive article and video from Alternet.

– If you need a daily fix of cute puppy photos you can always subscribe to this site. I do.

– Are the Repugnants in the dog house? Just how are they going to handle the real possibility of an Obama nomination? Read Frank Rich.

–  Is John McCain putting on a dog and pony show as he seems to emulate the Miss Teen South Carolina in his understanding of economics?
