Inexplicably, they still haven't identified this guy. You'd think all the barking would give him away.

(Thanks to Drew Harchick, even though the s.b. saw it repeatedly on the news and yet somehow failed to think of blogging it.)

He could get five years...

Dog years or people years?

Well, happiness is supposed to be a warm puppy.

Lairbo, I don't think they meant THAT kind of happy!

I didn't have the sound on because I'm at work. I hope that reporter cracked at least one joke - he seemed far too serious.

I guess the guy was wearing tighty whities, otherwise the dog would have gone straight through.

Oh, and that puppy was frickin ADORABLE!!!!

"The Maltese Felon."

Thank ewe - I'm hare all week.

Worst cat burglar ever!

Now that's what I call a pup tent.

See yesterday's poem about mr. johnson. I'm just sayin'.

I wonder if said puppy was a licker or a biter?

Thats how I steal all my puppies too...damn!!!! ;)

Straw: maybe he meant to steal a boxer.

Chaz - I hope it was a biter...the idiot deserves it!

Are they sure he didn't Shih Tzu in there?

Nobody thought that the large, tattooed bald man with the puppy sized hard-on walking out the door was an unusual site??? If I saw a guy leaving a pet store with a hard-on that big I would definitely suspect that something's up.

Pun intended.

Where is Richard Gere these days???

Catharine - not me - mum's the word. What if he tried to use it? Yowza and OUCH!

what size pants would like like sir?

something in a size K9

They could name him Woody...


I'm with catharine - you'd think the huge squirming bulge would give a clue no???

Siouxie, a clue to what?

that he is a man to be reckoned with...

I dunno blurk - I'd at least have a *look* :)

ya know...to check for puppies of course

That could have been my Dad in a couple years. But my Dad has way better hair. They've had Maltese my whole life, almost always a pair since I was 5. They are on Maltese #4 (Tasha) and #5 (Cloud Puff) now. #4 is pretty old though, 15 or so, but still in great shape for an old dog. Their first lived to be 16! Anyway, when it's time to get a new one, they call up lots of breeders and say they just want a pet quality puppy, but they are still very expensive. Quite adorable though!

As for me... I'm more of a bug dog guy, with two rescued Boxer mixes. Even the rescued half-breeds are getting pricey!

Is that why I get checked all the time when I leave stores? They're lookin' for puppies? I'm no thief!!

I saw this repeatedly, too, and didn't think to send it in.

*sits in corner with judi, passing the tequila bottle back and forth*

"Huge Squirming Bulge" WBAGNFARB?

Suzy Q - notice anything different?? :)

oh and blurker - I'm sure you don't mind - unless it's someone named Brunhilde...

can I get a shot of tequila? Is my name skip?

Richard Gere?

Siouxie Cruz:

Yes, I noticed! Congrats on your decision. :)

*passes you a tequila shot*

Betsi, Many years ago, "they" say, Mr. Gere was admitted into the emergency room of a Los Angeles hospital with foreign object lodged in his rectum. Some say Gere was alone when he arrived, others say he was accompanied by a friend (e.g., former love interest Cindy Crawford). In any case, an x-ray was taken and it was determined that the foreign object was a gerbil (either alive or dead, depending on who tells the story). Mr. Gere was rushed to surgery, where it took an entire team of doctors to extract the animal from Gere's behind. Some variants say the gerbil had been shaven and declawed; others claim the animal had been placed in a special plastic pouch. Still others insist the poor creature was Gere's own beloved pet (aptly named "Tibet" in this variant). In any case, when the surgery was finally over the medical team was sworn to secrecy — unsuccessfully, we must conclude — and Gere went on his merry way, suffering no permanent harm other than to his reputation.

24, I could have gone the rest of my life without hearing that story. Really.

Blame Betsi - inquiring minds and all that! I told you I know entirely too much about celebrities - it's an illness!

Is that a puppy in your pants, or are you just glad to see me?


That is NOT a true story. I don't know who started it and I resent you for repeating what is obviously slander and libel and a bunch of other things too.

But I also blame Higgy for bringing it up - so to speak.

Shut up, Richard. I am SO glad to be rid of you and your pecadilloes!

Gee, the guy just had a bad case of puppy love. Give him a break.

For Mr. Gere-
"Habitrails to you,
Until we meet again..."


a 'snork' from judi?! I will treasure it for heifer. :)

Once again my ingorance shines. I had to look up "habitrail" (oh please! Like I was the only one!)
*snork* @ awbh

Another shining example.

Hey, that's nothing. I went to school once with a heroin addict who stole a huge parrott from a pet store. She taught it to say "Cheezit, it's the cops."

Did she carry the parrot in her pants. Could be a sticky wicket.

belated *snork* @ Annie (and yes, I looked it up too and joins blurk in the ignoramus corner).

As far as that gere gerbil "incident" - the story I heard was that said animal was sedated...for easier..hmm..insertion? and then well...ya know what happens when they wake up. EWWWWW

Wow - I had no idea some people didn't know what habitrails were. I was more worried about the old Roy Rogers song being recognized.
Is this the best dang educational blog or whut?

There was a local variant of the Gere incident in Philadelphia when I was growing up. In that version it was a local newscaster who had the gerbil removal. I found it difficult to take him seriously after that.

Hey 24 did you mean to write:
...that he is a man to be RECTUMed with...

Sorry, I couldn't help myself....I'm still disturbed by the GIANT PINK TESTICLE story.

*snorks* to all! I laughed @ everyone. Either you guys are on your game today, or I'm more simple minded than previously thought.

If that guy is"Balding",then Dolly Parton is still "developing"...

Between the Richard Gere story and the new (to me) word "habitrail", I am *so* glad I read this blog.

Is it too late to join in the SNORKs at Annie? Well done!

Hey! They just did the rectal gerbil episode on South Park last night!!! But I had no idea it was based on the Life of Richard Gere.

I never really did believe that story though...too weird and well it's Richard Gere!!!

Annie: I recognize Roy....and I know about habitrails. We must be from the some generation. The RG story I heard from a doc who was at the scene. What a world....what a world! Glad you're in it. You crack me up.

Try not to think about it SiouxCruz.
Betsey, was it the Lemmiwinks episode?
Poor animale.

Thanks, guys....glad you like the habitrail line...I was giggling at myself over the 'Maltese Felon.'
Shoulda named the stunt gerbil "Michael Blaine."

I know this is a tad late, but am I the only one who noticed that the reporter's name was Codd?
