Longdog Update

GARY UPDATE: Gary is alive and well, albeit a little stationary at times. “Wobbly” is what Leigh says. “Drunky” is how I call it. Gary looks like he drank a 12-pack. But for him, that’d be about half a can. (He’s 7 pounds.) Sure, he smells like a subway stairway, but man, you gotta love him. He’s half the hound he was, but he drags that dead end around without a care in the world. Or, in the living room.

That’s the little man above, as shot by Leigh. Here’s what she had to say: “It’s titled “Gary Baby!” with an exclamation poin-tuh!” Something like that, readers.

RIGWRECKER WARNING: Here’s how Fresno does “car accidents” in a Flickr set called, “Old Auto Accidents in Fresno.” Some burly shit in there. All bubbly and wonky and bent to shit. Life changers, all of them. I’d bet. (K. Henry found this one, and slipped it to us some days back. Thank you, buddy.)

DALE OR GOO BROUGHT THIS ONE UP TODAY: Remember sniglets? Well, if you don’t, that prob’ly means we are smarter than you. And/or, you haven’t lived.

GOOD, CLEAN FUN: Uncle Buck prank calls. (Jess found this one, that jolly elf.)

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SNIFFED AROUND THIS ONE: The Gallery of Book Trade Labels. If you haven’t seen this, be prepared to be blown the fuck away. Seriously. It’s been over a year for us, if my fading memory serves me right. (Thanks for the reminder, Zindel!)

A BIG, FOAMING MOUTH OF APPRECIATION, WITH A ORANGE TOOTH BRUSH STICKING OUT OF IT: That’s how we feel about you, if you bought one of our DDC Brand “Cuspid Cleaners.” Really. Orders are flying in. Thank you! Just about the dumbest thing we’ve made, but something you should have, nonetheless. Get one. Act now. Get clean. Black bristles for adventurous grills.

Hey man. Thanks for the Gary update. I drew that illustration of you and Gary for DSVC and, at the time, didn’t know about Gary’s condition. I think about it every time I view your site. I sure am glad to hear that he’s coping and that you guys are adjusting too. It’s good to know he’s still trucking! I hope all is well brother.

I was reloving your stuff on layer tennis and decided to click on your link. Your top post got my attention because I also have a handicapped dog (albeit one that weighs 10x more than yours) and have researched the doggie wheelchairs on the market. Eddie’s wheels won out for me, but there are some others out there (K9 seems to have done a redesign to be more like Eddie’s since I last looked) and even a university project on how to make your own with PVC pipes. I plan to order an Eddie’s as soon as I measure my dog. Good health to the little guy!
