Textbook dog

This post is going to lick you to death…

Here, take a minute to look at these photographs of a textbook case of dog. Her name is Allie Anne and she belongs to a friend of mine here in Brisbane, California.

There, isn’t that better? This is cheering you up a bit, isn’t it?

I thought so.

Seriously, looking at these photos has got to be better than whatever dismal and infuriating news reports you were reading about the fucking moron in the White House who is systematically tearing our country down and apart with his stupidity, ignorance, and racism.

Yeah, I know. It’s continually depressing and hard to summon either courage or hope.

Hey, I know, I’ll look at the dog with you. Let’s be calm for a few minutes and just sit here together and look at the happy dog.

  1. This is one of the many reasons I get up from my desk, walk over to the creek, and snap pictures of the creek every week. Some things are eternal (or close enough), like the changing of the seasons, the flow of water, the sounds of birds in the trees and rodents in the underbrush.

    • That’s sure as hell better than letting your mental health continually erode by letting U.S. political news turn you into an incurable rage-o-holic.
