Damn Dogs

Dog theme for today.

Our tenacious trouble making puppy decided he really liked the salad dressing the wife made. So much that he managed to dump it all over his head. Nothing like a mix of olive oil, citrus and maple syrup to create a healthy, luxurious coat.

Went and saw "Marley and Me" over the weekend. Not a great movie, but very effective at pushing your buttons-especially if you are a dog person.

Finished reading A Dog in a Hat by Joe Parkin. Parkin is a retired American bike racer that you have probably never heard of. He spent most of his career in Belgium. The book does a great job of showing the realities of professional cycling in Europe during the late eighties and early nineties. The drugs, the rivalries, the drugs, the toiling in obscurity and the drugs. Plus it has a forward by Bobke. If you are into cycling I would highly recommend this book.
