Hon, the pictures you take of her she basically looks like the Hound of Baskervilles. (Which I'm pretty sure she is not, unless you trained her that way to be. Did you?)

If I ever saw her I'd feel perfectly comfortable approaching her, and then seeing if she wants my food I'd share it with her. (That's if I'm actually hauling any food as a bicycle person.)

It's almost sort of embarrassing, but here's the tub of lard I like to call my dog.

(Just waiting for a tummy scratch all the time, aren't they?)

What do you give her as a treat?

I usually give my dog a baby carrot when I'm about to leave the house (which may account for his somewhat orange-ish coat), and then I just leave some sort of sports tv on when I have to go to work.

He always seems to survive and be alive by the time I get back.

My dog has a weird appetite for hard candy, but doesn't like popcorn. (He's just about the only dog I know who doesn't like popcorn.)

I took this pic just now - while he's pretending he hasn't stolen a piece of candy (it's in his mouth, and I know it), I'm pretending I didn't just trim his facial hair. (In the interest of appearing all aero, and stuff.)

Right, so being the loving dog owners we are (I'll include you cat people as well in this one), we need to watch for tumors. Especially as your pet gets older.

I bathe my dog myself, so I am aware he has a tumor on the inside of his hind right.

I told the vet about it, he did a biopsy... turns out it was just a fatty tumor.

Most of the time it may be that, but some of the time it may actually be cancer. So, you know, do what you need to do when it comes to that, and let your conscience be your guide.

Awwww... that is just about the sweetest bouquet I've ever seen. Do you mind if I take it and give the real lady a carrot instead?

Or, how about we give her a whole vegetable bouquet?

(You'll have to excuse her, she might be a bit gassy afterward.)


PS - My dog actually likes cauliflower, but does not like broccoli. I have no idea where I went wrong with that one.

Nice sketch, bandit! I can't draw for the life of me.

I occasionally babysit a neighbor's standard poodle, thankfully my neighbor has enough presence of mind to not giver her that ghastly poodle haircut.

I actually gave her a haircut myself this summer - my neighbor never got around to taking her to the salon, and because the weather got so hot I felt sorry for her and just felt compelled to do it myself. It didn't turn out as well as I had hoped because she's touchy about her paws, but at least she didn't end up looking all ridiculous like the other poodles. (I think "dog show level" shih tzus have it even worse, actually.)

Image

PS - I always thought poodles were stupid, but she's actually the sweetest old lady I've ever known. (Sorry, only pic I have of her, but that is usually what her hair looks like. Except it's a lot more even.)

I guess poodles can be all right, it all depends on what their masters do with them. (Cool sketch, btw., bandit.)

But then we have something like this (poor shih tzus)... I can't imagine any self-respecting, greasy, sweaty, and perpetually hungry bicycle rider would want to do this to his/her dog. (If you do do this I don't want to know you.)

Well, truing can take a while, right? Might as well get comfortable, is what I say. (Weather permitting at the time I might have actually worn my pajamas!)

Right, so I bathed the dog, gave him his flea treatment, trimmed his nose hair a bit...

And this is my best artistic interpretation of a Shih Tzu.

No worries, he got plenty of baby carrots having to sit through this photo session.
