Today is Bart's Birthday!

He's two today. And as you can see, we went out to celebrate last night!

    Bart looks a little young to be drinking that beer. In dog years, he's only fourteen. He's got one more earth year to go.

    Cookie, I think you may be missing the point when your dog is your "designated driver."

    Jerry, are you kidding me? They way that dog drinks I'd never let him behind the wheel.

    That's no joke. Dogs love beer. I was housesitting for some friends of mine once, and their dog, Jake, decided he wanted to watch the Stanley Cup playoffs with me.

    And I was enjoying a couple of Rolling Rocks--it's hockey. Nothing compliments thuggish violence like Rolling Rock. And Jake, who's crazy about beer but never gets any due to his owners being all grown up and cruel like, kept pawing at my bottle arm.

    So I got a little bowl and set it next to the couch and every time I had a beer, I'd pour a little bit in the bowl for Jake.

    And we were pretty much enjoying the game--though Jake took five bucks off of me when the Flyers predictably folded in the third period, just like Jake said they would.

    But, anyway, we were having a pretty good time until Jake turned into a mean drunk and started fucking growling at me while standing over his bowl and staring at my beer bottle.

    But the best part was when I got up and went to the bathroom, Jake knocked my bottle over and was licking beer off the floor when I came back.

    Anyway, I had to flag him. And we haven't been as close since. Also, he had a terrible case of diarrhea the next day.

    Which was partly my fault. On the other hand, if he were reasonable, he might admit that eating that plastic bread bag out of the garbage probably didn't help.

    Great story Ricky! I hope Jake learned his lesson.

    Bart's never a mean drunk. He just gets silly and all snuggly and touchy with the ladies.

    btw, was that last year when Tampa won the Cup?

    Hey what breed is Bart?

    He looks like a relative of my dog.

    Bart is a beagle. Born and breed in Odessa, FL.

    No, it was years ago, when Lindros would choke like a salamander trying to swallow an apple...

    It was horrible...
