A multitude of chill dogs, for your viewing pleasure.

I’m sorry - I thought that said chili dogs and now I’m hungry.

Dogs were always the first best method of cleanup when I was a kid…especially if it was something you didn’t want to touch.

"The mayor announced that the dogs were not actually dogs, just some plastic bags caught in the breeze that people mistook for wild dogs.”

Did anybody else click and drag? You should.

Every single time this shows up on my dash, the top of first pic scrolls up and I think it’s going to be some curly red-haired human kid.

I used to know an Italian greyhound who did something similar, except she did it when she was growling.

St. Guinefort
Speaking of dogs:
In the 13th century in France, a dog named Guinefort was venerated as a saint. Locals would travel to his grave, where they claimed miracles would occur, especially over infants.
The legend went as follows:
A certain knight left his infant son in the care of his greyhound Guinefort while he went hunting. When he returned, he found the child’s cot overturned, the dog and room smeared with blood, and the child nowhere to be found. Enraged that his previously loyal hound had eaten his only child, the knight drew his sword and slew Guinefort on the spot. Immediately thereafter, the knight’s wife turned the cot back over, only to find the child laughing and unharmed, and the bloody corpse of a viper lying next to him.
The knight repented of having killed such a loyal friend and lowered the dog’s body into a well, which he filled in with rocks and converted into a shrine. When the people heard the story, they called the dog a martyr and venerated him as a saint who performed healing miracles, particularly among young children.
(This tale is very similar to the story of the Welsh hound Gelert, except with a wolf instead of a snake, and the added detail that the dog’s owner—Llewellyn the Great—was forever haunted by the dying yelp of the dog and never smiled again.)
Guinefort was never recognized as an official saint, and the church tried to suppress his cult. In fact, the inquisitor Stephen of Bourbon was SO MAD at the idea that someone would say a dog could be a saint, he made it clear that the cult of Guinefort was IN FACT a secret devil-worshiping operation and all babies that were allegedly healed by a dog’s ghost were actually eaten by Satan. He had the shrine destroyed and the body and relics of Guinefort burned for heresy.
To reiterate: under church law, it is impossible for a dog to be a saint; one can, however, be a heretic.
Despite the efforts of killjoys like Stephen of Bourbon, the cult of Guinefort lasted for centuries, well into the 1930s.
As far as I know, there have been no other dog saints. Except for Saint Christopher, of course, who we all know was half dog.

No cat saints?

oh so cute

I slyly read this in a book shop in America, it’s cute

by The Oatmeal, who also has a Tumblr

I’m terrible at condolences.  If a friend loses a cat, I can quote Garrison Keillor’s In Memory of Our Cat Ralph.  I’ve been at a loss when a furry family member is a dog, though.

I think I’ve found my dog quote.

The world’s top canine surfers

Every year, Orange County’s Huntington Beach plays host to the Surf City Surf Dog competition, giving particularly talented pups a chance to prove just how much better they are than most people at surfing.

See all of the seabourne pooches over at Framework.

Does your town have surfing dogs? This weekend in Huntington Beach, all the pros gathered for the fifth annual Surf City Surf Dog Competition. More pictures here.

Why do I always miss these things?  We were trying to think of something to do with no money this weekend; we could have walked here!  It was right down at the Dog Beach!  Grr.
