Quick Bio:

October 16th 2004

Playing Tug-of-war, stealing the blankets, and the big-blue kayak, oh and SNOW!!!!

Stupid people who think pitties are mean! "Voldemort the Vacuum," Mom's electric toothbrush, mom's electric foot spa, the electric hairdryer. I'm starting to see a pattern here.

Favorite Toy:
His favorite toy is a purple ball that makes gurgling noises. He destroys it on contact and I have to keep replacing it. You can see it, in all its glorious predestruction intactness, and the beginnings of its destruction in his DogsterPlus photo album.

Favorite Food:
Croutons and greenbeans, provided they have butter on them.

Favorite Walk:
Through the woods behind the house. Okay ANY woods, anywhere. The best part about it, for him I'm convinced, is the satisfaction of causing never-ending amounts of exasperation by wrapping his 30-foot lead around as many trees as possible.

Best Tricks:
He can sit, roll-over, lay down and play dead, "Get in the Boat, "give paw," "go to bed," down-stay, and now he gives kisses on command (usually after a "give paw.")

Arrival Story:
His first mommy is a busy musician and has to go to New York a lot, so she let us take him home.

Veteran's Day - 2012

Sixth Annual Installment of the Veteran's Day Post, which hasn't changed because America hasn't stepped up.

I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that America is currently at war.

There are no victory gardens or war bonds this time around. The Home Front hasn't mobilized at all. In fact, most of us just go about our daily lives, occasionally listening to news reports about how bad things are, how hopeless the whole situation is, what Congress is currently griping about, and how messed up the military is...etc., etc., etc. The news likes to emphasize that kind of stuff. They'd rather tell you about some sort of scandal, or mistake, or crisis than focus on the valor, the sacrifice, the dedication of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airman and Marines currently risking their lives for our freedom. Not sure why. But with what little impact this insignificant diary may have, I'd like to ask you to take a moment today to think about the men and women in uniform, past and present, who have answered the call of their country, whether you agree with that reason for that call or not.

Take a moment and google Lt. Michael P. Murphy (USN), Cpl. Jason L . Dunham (USMC), SFC Paul R. Smith (USA), SPC Ross McGinnis (USA), SFC Jared Monti (USA), MA2 Michael Monsoor (USN), SSG Robert J. Miller (USA), SSG Salvatore Guinta (USA), SFC Leroy Petry (USA), and SGT Dakota Meyer (USMC) and learn what valor and sacrifice for your country truly means. Almost each year I have posted this--a name has been added to this pantheon.

If you see a Veteran from WWII or Korea-- thank him. If you see a Vietnam Vet-- welcome him home. And when you see a current service member or Vet, let him or her know that their service was not in vain. Because no matter what you think about the current war, you need to remember that the only reason you can just go about your daily business like nothing is going on is because he or she defended your ability to do so with all of their might.

And then consider that maybe you owe them more than that. It is a debt that cannot be repaid.


OSS Detachment 101

KITTY has been burrowing.

BUT it appears I have a "Wild Bill" Donovan on the look out. The OSS is only supposed to spy on the enemy, not the KITTY. But when you are the SAC and have an enemy in your inner circle you sometimes need "outside/inside?" help.

I have been advised by this OSS agent to go all-out "Chu Chi" on the KITTY's derriere. And she has provided photographic evidence of the tactic's utility. Its an interesting prospect.

Using the enemy's tactics against him (Sun Tzu, Chapter 6). I'm liking this.

KITTY will never see it coming.

Maybe the RECON advantage that the tunnels will give me - will give me the ammunition I need to convince the JCS that KITTY is NOT actually an ally - he's burrowing... translate -- peeing on the command post's laundry pile.

(Editor's note: William Donovan was a bad-a**, the men who served in the CBI theater(esp. the 5307th Composite Unit (provisional)) ROCK!!!!, and the dog STILL can't get his wars straight).

I am the Supreme Allied Commander (SAC) and therefore I get the perks, the spoils of war, the tea in china cups in my tent on the Western Front.

So why, all of a sudden, is there this other officer that has been brought in, messing with my war, my front, my victories.

The JCS call him KITTY.

He's moved into my HQ and set up his own objectives against geckos and spiders. NOT the enemy, we're after the FTRL and the varmint Cong.

But NO....he's set up his own Maginot line in the mud room. DID HE LEARN NOTHING from Von Schlieffen???? What kind of general officer purposefully sets up a two-front war as part of his STRATPLAN??

I am the SAC, and this "KITTY" is going down - I'm gonna school him like Ike did MacArthur; like Grant did Burnside.

(Editor's note: the dog is just peeved that there is now a cat he has to live with, and that he can't play with the cat's toys, or go in the cat's room, or eat said cat.)
