My dog is better than your dog!



This is my dog, Wrigley J. Rimmer. It is my belief that all dogs should have three names, just like us. Giving your dog your own last name is unimaginative and lame.

Ever seen a Beagle puppy after drinking two pints of Mountain Dew?







I have.



This was taken last Christmas. I have no excuse for using that blanket.

Wrigs is a purebred Beagle and he is far cuter than any other dog. I know you're probably thinking (especially if you have your own dog) that is a subjective statement and by nature cannot be proven.

Well you are wrong. My dog is far superior in every way.



Want proof? Check out this sorry excuse for a dog:



What kind of person would let something like this into their home? Do you think she's able to eat around this thing? I can barely keep my lunch down just looking at it now. Imagine being in the same room as this.

And what would you name such a thing? Assuming you've lost a big enough bet, or promised your mother on her deathbed you'd look after her dog; what do you name it? Surely not "Sparky," or "Skippy," or "Cupcake."

I think I'd have to go with "Saddam," or "Stalin," or "Oprah."







If I were to see such a hound, I would surely feel obligated to wipe it's existence from the face of the Earth. Honestly, if you were driving down the street, and encountered this, you're telling me that you wouldn't swerve to hit this thing. In doing so, you'd be doing your country, nay, mankind a favor in ending the life of such a horrid creature.

What's even more sad, the fact that even this dog has a girlfriend.






There must be something seriously wrong with me.

Let me tell you all that despite the ugliness of this dog, I had the worst dog ever as a kid. Looks can be ignored, stinkiness and meanness can not. When I was 10 my parents brought home a cute little mutt that seemed nice. It turned mean and stinky. As a teenager the dog bit my friends and made my house smell like earwax (or something else). It was horrible, I am opposed to dogs in general since this experience.....

Wrigley's cousin Sutton is pretty cute herself. Bring Wrigs for Thanksgiving and we'll let them duke it out for the top dog award.

The librarian just came over and got on to me for laughing out loud of the pictures of the ugly dog posed seductively on a rock like a supermodel. I'd rather have a cat than that dog, and that's saying a LOT.

By saying that your dog is "superior in every way" to other people's dogs you are saying that your dog is superior to my dog; and that is just not so. I have to go to school right now, but when I get home I will write a post about my dog, we will then let the people decide whose dog truly is superior.

Pec – I have to admit that I was a saddened to read your post about how not all dogs are equal. The broad generalization that your dog is “far superior” to any other dog is incorrectly made in my assumption. To make this statement one must assume that you have met every dog in the world…spent some time with them individually over dinner or with a romantic walk in a park (a side note—many Labrador retrievers enjoy the soothing words of children’s poet Eugene Field over a picnic in the park). Here is my problem with your blog: think about this, " You shall be holy men to Me, therefore you shall not eat any flesh torn to pieces in the field; you shall throw it to the dogs” Exodus 22:31. We can obviously assume from this section of scripture that all dogs are created equal, and to throw a whole group of them into a category is a little naive. Granted it did look like that dog did need a little work, but with the help of a show like Extreme Makeover, soon this little pup could be the new hit with all the local lady dogs…come to think of it, if we could pair him up with the “Fancy Boys” they might be able to work their magic…oh wait a second…someone just walked in the room and told me you weren’t really being serious with this post, but were making obvious exaggerations for the sake of comedy…nevermind.

Funny how your post today was about your dog. I saw my first picture of your dog yesterday on your brother's computer at work and I was commenting on how great your dog is! Yes...I am jealous. I love my dog...but it's getting ugly, it stinks, and its old and at times I think it is slightly retarded. But nothing compares to the dog Sam on your post--I don't think even fancy/nancy boys can help him!

By the way, Pecadillo, I don't feel as though a big enough deal has been made about the quilt with which you chose to wrap yourself in one of your pictures.

The picture is especially interesting in light of your last post about the metro guys at camp. I bet even they wouldn't be caught dead wrapped up in a quilt like that. You'll be sculpting your hair and flipping your collar before Christmas.

Your dog may be balding and obese, but he's got character. That goes a long way.

Centuri0n
No, that joke was not too obvious. Personally, I think that lady has a Kathy-Bates-from-Misery feel about her that totally weirds me out. I'm sure she's that dog's "number one fan."

Be expecting more of the same from FilmBandits, he's one of the funniest guys I know.

Welcome. Since you are new to the blogospere, I feel it is my duty to inform you that such praise from Centuri0n is no small thing. Frank is the man.

Chris
I've got ten bucks on Wrigley.

Like I said, I have no excuse for that blanket. I could say it was cold that day. I could say Wrigs needed a blanket in order to be on the rope hammock due to its design, but alas, there IS NO excuse.

I can't wait to see how you’re going to argue that your Chihuahua is better than Wrigley. This will be good.

C-Train has a chihuahua? Dude, does he cary it everywhere like Britney does? Does it have its own sweater?

I'm not so hot on dogs that weigh less than my wife, but at least a beagle is a hunting dog with a crazy, bass bark.

Chihuahua? AND he looks like Seacrest? Are you sure he was in your Bible study and not the "other" Bible study? I'm getting worried about him.

Ew, the picture of the lady holding the ugly dog is disgusting. It even has a little tumor sticking from it's chest. Within the tumor is probably teeth and a spinal cord. Are those pictures CG?
Cute pics of you and the beagle. However, I think you're feigning sleep in the one, so as to get someone to take your picture. My kids do the same thing. I have photo albums full of them faking naps.

WRONG. I'm really asleep there. I don't know what the deal is with my eye though. Looks like a twitch or something.

The pictures of little Oprah are real too, no cg.

Frank, it was cold. I needed a blanket of some kind. In my lazy and short lived search for a cloak, I settled for the questionable quilt. At the time, I was not anticipating the use of the family camera. If I had, surely I would have found myself a more suitable blanket.

I did say in the previous post that I don't care what I look like. I guess the same can't be said for some of us (Frank & Chris).

This comment is really for C-Train. I tried to post on his blog, but appearantly someone wrote something low-brow or smutty, because my Net-nanny won't let me in.
C-Train, I vote for Skippy. He's by far cooler than Wrigley. Wrigley, admittedly, has a more aesthetic advantage, (cuter) but Skippy definately has more inner-beauty.
However, the fire story didn't really do anything for me, as he didn't save anyone, and may have even left some to die. I think this should be ommited from his testimony.

The only dogs I like are on a stick, covered in a corn-based breading, and smothered in mustard with a side of fries. Dogs are stupid, but loyal. Cats are intelligent, but will sit and quietly watch you get hit by a Cadillac and not even budge. Birds are a mess and the smart ones will repeat all the swear words you say to your parents. Fish...fish are the way to go.

An "Ozewhrpr" is an embarressing quilt for which there is no excuse.

BTW Pec, at risk of sounding suspiciously girly, that dog is adorable... yes, even more than C-Train's. (sorry dude)

I'm dumbutdeep's cousin. She sent me over here because she knew I would like this blog and I do! A good sign is that I read this post and laughed outloud. Then I emailed the link to my sisters because they would dig that nasty dog.
I have to argue that although your dog IS cute. He is not better than the dog I grew up with. His name was Domino. We called him Noonie. He was a Boston Terrier and towards the end of his life, he was overweight, deaf and missing an eye--sorta like if your childhood teddybear was alive; all worn out with love. He was the best.

What name would I give to that hideous mini-warg?

How about "Legion"?

That'd be so much fun though when it comes to designing the dog tag-
Front: "Legion"
Back: "For we are many"

The only useful purpose this dog could exibit would be at Halloween, when you wouldn't want to be bothered by snotty trick-or-treaters and their snottier parents, so you chain the dog right outside your front door and change porch lightbulb from normal anti-bug yellow to jeepers-creepers green.

Oh, yeah, and you would already have trained the devil dog to attack whenever he hears the word "treat."

The tremendous value inherent in ALL dogs is obvious to anyone with more than half a dozen brain cells.

"They can't talk" - Dogs speak very clearly. YOU just haven't taken the time to learn their language.

"They can't walk with me on the beach or...give me a shoulder to cry on" - Wes, Wes, do I really need to address this with you?

I don't know about you, but it's going to take me about 10 little drinks with bamboo umbrellas before the quilt is okay with me...

And sorry C-Train. I'll let it slide that you had the gall to pose for your own nap picture with Skippy, but posing the dog with a baby is completely over the top. The sentimental appeal did nothing for me. Wrigley in a land slide.

I haven't really talked about this, but...I was injured recently.

Earlier in the month I visited your side of the U.S., Santa Clarita to be exact. One day, while minding my own business, standing in line at a taco sellin' place, I was attacked by a dog. The dog attack left me with mangled hands, rendering me unable to type.

Yes, the dog that attacked me was none other than Skippy. Did you see the picture of that dog trying to bite that poor kid's nose off?

The pain is still there. Sharp, stabbing pain up my arms. The Dr. says I will recover but my "Thumb-wrestling" days are over.

It is indeed perilous times when common folks can't visit taco sellin' places without fear of animal attacks.

Thanks for the Link. It is truly an honor. Glad to be back.

It would seem that I have trained Skippy well and that he has performed a service for us all by temporarily incapacitating your ability to post. If you ever come back to Santa Clarita and wish to avoid another Skippy attack, here is a tip- don't where that crown you have on in your picture, Skippy hates queens.
