Dog Jack – Pitbull War Hero

It really is a small world.  Today I went to Terrierman’s excellent weblog and found this story about Dog Jack, a brown and white bull terrier that learned to understand the bugle calls of his civil war regiment.  Read more about Jack here:

In a wonderful ‘small world’ coincidence, it turns out I know the woman who trained the dog that played Jack in the soon to be released movie “Dog Jack“.  Piglet is a 3-year old deaf pit bull who was left by her “breeder” to die as a baby puppy.  Fortunately for Piglet, she was adopted by Tracy Doyle who not only saw Piglet’s potential, but who also had the training skills to make her shine.

Politics – “It’s the revulsion, stupid”

Thanks to Kristi Jo who sent me this link to today’s post on Daily Kos:

This quote from his blog pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter too:

“I would vote for an honest, non-Republican illegal immigrant atheist gay transvestite who was a bigamist involved in both a gay AND heterosexual marriage if I thought it might help get my country back on track “

Check out his funny and insightful blog entry – and be sure to participate in his poll.

(in the spirit of journalistic disclosure I feel that I must add that: I am an agnostic, I am not a republican, two of my best friends are lesbians, my brother was a drug addicted transvestite {and my best friend} and my first love was the son of an illegal immigrant….)
