Isn’t he a beauty?
I’ve never met Jackson, but Canadian photographer Peter Thorne has captured the depth and beauty of this old canine soul.
If you’ve had the privilege to share your home with a senior dog, you know what I’m talking about. Their love is constant and unconditional and patient, with very few grumbles considering their declining health.
Thorne is putting together a collection of photos of older dogs called “Old Faithful” that he hopes to show at a gallery or assemble into a book.
If you’d like to learn more about his project that celebrates my favorite senior citizens, visit his Facebook page.
Rory and I are huge fans.

Tonight I surrender my blog to the glory of the Babushka Dogs that are taking over Instagram.
Nothing I have to say is more important or will make you feel happier.

Pretty much everyone knows Grumpy Cat, the permanently sour-faced feline who catapulted from Internet curiosity to international superstar.
Sure, he looks mean, but I consider his dour countenance a rarity in the animal kingdom. Most animals I see have sweet, smiling resting faces.
Then a friend posted a picture of a very judgmental turtle on his Facebook feed. (It was Turtle Tuesday, after all.) So I consulted the Google machine to see if there were other cranky critters out there.
(Don’t move, and maybe they’ll redirect their anger at a small rodent.)

I just read on the Interwebs that the average household mattress contains 2 million dust mites.
I don’t share this because misery loves company.
I just wonder:
Where did dust mites live before mattresses were invented?
Mattresses with linen or cotton covers didn’t appear until the mid-18th century. Were dust mites nomadic before that time? Did man’s invention change their way of life? Make them fat and lazy?
Are dust mites bigger and scarier now then they used to be??
I won’t be sleeping tonight.

Today the very funny folks at College Humor posed the question —
What if things we did religiously had their own religion?
They developed religions for things like…
- The weekly TV dramas and sitcoms that we can’t miss
- Our morning Starbucks run
- The smartphone permanently attached to our hip
You get the drift.
I could add even more activities like making my bed (a holdover from my childhood), walking the dog and playing Candy Crush before bed.
And while I am definitely a member of the TV viewership religion, I participate in a more radical faction —
(The DVR made me do it.)

I was horrified by the series finale of How I Met Your Mother.
If you don’t know how it ended oh so many months ago, stop reading. But suffice it to say, the last episode was like a sledgehammer to the very foundation of the show’s premise, crumbling its emotional center, its heart and its credibility.
It was awful.
Soon after the show’s creators and CBS were inundated with bad reviews and poor comments, it was revealed that there was an alternate ending that would be included on the DVD. It has now been leaked.
It is perfect.
Whoever got to choose the version that aired?
