Darling Doggie Does Doga?

Doga: how yoga can be good for dogs too.

A man tries to relax his excitable Chihuahua by teaching it yoga – and it copies him as he performs the poses

Many dog owners enjoy exercising with their pet – whether that is going for a walk, a run or riding a bike alongside their dog.

However, Nic Bello is looking to do something a little bit more relaxing and has been teaching his dog Pancho to do yoga.

Apparently this is a real thing – called “Doga”. As Chihuahuas are notoriously yappy and excitable dogs, I hope that all that stretching and breathing can help the little creature relax.

The pair have now released a series of dog yoga videos together, with this showing some more complex yoga moves:

See a video of it @:


A man gets his dog to do yoga,
He calls the routines his new “Doga”;
He stretches his body,
Without being haughty,
He’d really look good in a toga.

They do all the routines together,
In any and all kinds of weather;
They bend and they stretch,
It helps Poncho to fetch,
The dog is as light as a feather.

Chihuahuas are usually yappy,
Perhaps cause they’re always quite happy;
When you get such a pet,
It’s excitement you get,
It’s true; I’m not just being sappy.

They’re making a new video,
Doga’s the name of the show;
It’s something to buy,
For your dog to try,
It might help; you never know.

Darling Doggy Drenched

Dog rescued from icy waters in Massachusetts

Two Massachusetts firefighters have made the holiday week brighter by their heroism in the face of the icy Charles River

When a Massachusetts fire department took a 911 call from a frantic dog owner, officers went into action to rescue Crosby.

The five year old Golden Retriever, had run out onto the ice and suddenly found herself deep in the freezing water about 50 yards off shore.

Two firefighters suited up in cold water survival gear and inched their way out onto the ice until they broke through to reach Crosby.

Firefighter Paul Papazian was able to rescue Crosby and guide her back to shore.

Once on shore Crosby was checked out and swiftly walked to a waiting, warm squad car and a dry towel.

She was a little cold and shaken, but seemed to survive the ordeal as best as could be expected.

Shortly thereafter, Crosby was re-united with her owners.

You can watch a video of the rescue with the above link.


Someone called 911.
Their dog was not having fun;
She fell into cold water,
Wishing it were much hotter,
Could something heroic be done?

They sent in a great rescue team,
While the owner probably screamed;
They went into the river,
While Crosby did shiver,
To onlookers it looked like a dream.

Onto the shore they arrived,
Crosby was still quite alive;
Wrapped up real tight,
Shivering from fright,
They’re happy that she did survive.

A lesson is here for us all,
Keep dogs leashed so they cannot fall,
Thru cold winter ice,
That wouldn’t be nice,
It’s something that would make us bawl.

Your HORROR – scope for the week of Sep 8th, 2013

This week brings a new crop of celestial prognostications.

Our staff has spent the past few days in total concentration to find the best advice known to mankind regarding your particular situation.

Remember, the stars and planets give us these indications.

All we do is report them to you, our very special celestial friends and family.


Aries… You are ruled by Mars, so get your act together. Your allergy symptoms will subside when you stop sleeping on a bed of drier lint.

Taurus…Venus controls your every move, so watch out. Don’t date a geometry teacher unless you are willing to run around in circles.

Gemini… Mercury is your astrological planet. Obey it or else. Just because you have a great batter recipe doesn’t mean you are eligible for the big leagues.

Cancer… The moon is in Cancer now. It’s so bright, it may keep you awake nights. You will fall in love with a greyhound, only to break up after dating the fake rabbit from the dog track.

Leo… The sun is your sign. This week you may encounter a bowl of Chipotle, Nick Nolte, and/or a Truman Capote fan.

Virgo… Mercury rules the roost for you. Don’t date a hosier salesman. If you break up he/she could end up staking you.

Libra… Venus is your primary planet. You will gain favor with your boss when you stop including the words, “toad face” in your daily greeting.

Scorpio… Pluto is your planet. It rules your every moment. You are always tired because you breathe too heavily. Lighten up.  Listen to Dennis Miller once in a while.

Sagittarius… Jupiter reigns supreme for you. Sleeping in grime is not a crime, but it could get quite dirty.

Capricorn… Saturn dominates your life. Tell your friends they are definitely wrong. If you are diagnosed as bi-polar, you will not have to live alternately in the Arctic and Antarctica.

Aquarius… Uranus is your ruling planet. You will soon be as popular as a topical anesthetic.

Pisces… Neptune rules the house. You enemies are out to make you look glandular.

And remember what Weird Al says about astrology in his song, “Your Horoscope For Today”:

“Now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely that the relative position of the planets and the stars could have a special deep significance or meaning that exclusively applies to only you, but let me give you my assurance that these forecasts and predictions are all based on solid, scientific, documented evidence, so you would have to be some kind of moron not to realize that every single one of them is absolutely true.”

Google’s Glass left Apple aghast

After Google’s successful demonstration of its video-capturing, augmented reality glasses, Apple quickly applied for, (and received), a patent for its own magic glasses for a wearable computer display.

This could be trouble for me. Half the time, I can’t find my regular glasses.

I can see it now:

Me…”Honey have you seen my glasses?”

She…Which ones? Your long distance glasses, your reading glasses, your sun glasses or those new, weird looking ones?”

Me…”The new ones. The computer display glasses that cost me three hundred and fifty dollars.”

She…”Did you get the extended warranty on the computer thingy’s?”

Me…”No. Why?”

She…”Just wondered.”

Me…”I can’t find them. Did you see them?”

She…”Yes. The dog is chewing on them in the den.”


Soon we’ll all wear a display,

We’ll use it for work or for play;

Some glass in a frame,

For use in a game,

I’m waiting for that special day.

Here doggie, doggie.

Japanese toy maker Bandai has created their version of a Smart dog. The gadget uses a free app to turn your iPhone into a walking, barking puppy. You attach your phone to the dog mechanism, turn on the app and have fun. See it at:

My take on this is…

A guy with an iPhone got lucky,

He turned it into a cute puppy;

It barks and it walks,

Too bad it can’t talk,

The next thing he wants is a guppy.


Limericks…Watch Out! They’re “G” Rated

I decided to publish some limericks which I offered as comments to some blogs I follow. I hope you like them. I plan to do a book of limericks in the near future.

Snow monkeys like water that’s warm,

To hot springs they always do swarm;

They frolic and play,

Throughout most of the day,

I guess it won’t do them much harm.

There once was a procrastinator,

Who always put things off  ’til later;

Things didn’t get done,

His life was not fun,

His later got greater and greater.

There was an old man from East End,

He didn’t have even one friend;

His life was so weary,

And often most teary,

But he didn’t want change in that trend.

There once was a girl from the city,

She didn’t think she was so pretty;

She primped and she pasted,

No make-up was wasted,

But she didn’t change one iddy biddy.

One man was so full of regret,

He hated what he didn’t get;

What he failed to do,

Plagued him thru and thru,

He just couldn’t seem to forget.

There was a young pup in a sweater,

He was a real go getter;

He knew all his tricks.

He caught balls and some sticks,

There wasn’t a pup who was better.

A man who lived next to the tracks,

Drank twenty-five cold pickle-backs;

He went out in the rain,

He did not hear the train,

He was thrown right out of his slacks.

Please comment and/or rate this post. It would make my day, and encourage me to write more of these.

Dog Problems

I can't stand it when my owner talks down to me.

Not the starving prairie dogs again!

Scruffy, eat your dinner. There are starving prairie dogs in Colorado who would love to have this.
