Dog News!

Look at this dog who saved a baby:

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - A newborn baby abandoned outdoors in winter by her 14-year-old mother was found safe in a dog pen with a mother dog and her brood of puppies near the city of La Plata, Argentine media reported on Friday.

Farmer Fabio Anze found the naked baby girl on Thursday, being kept warm among his dog China's puppies, La Nacion newspaper said. Anze called the police and the baby was taken to a hospital.

In a related story, scientists are claiming that domestication has made us (dogs) more intelligent and moral. Uh, dudes, wrong directionality. We have made you apes smarter, more moral, and less boring. Which isn't saying much because you've never been all that, in spite of what you tell yourselves.

Dr Friederike Range, of the University of Vienna, who led the study, said: 'Dogs show a strong aversion to inequity. I would prefer not to call it a sense of fairness, but others might.'

Neither of these stories is actually about me but here is a picture of me nonetheless. YOu might call it egoism. I call it giving my audience what they want:

We agree with Simba, joe stains,Jake,et al. Wally you are real smart. We do need someone like you for Pres. Course one of us here is also real smart(no, not you Scooter. It is me, Sunny) However, smart as we are, they won't let us hold office. Some silly rule involving opposable thumbs and such..
We've been readin your blog a long time Wally. Please don't compare our feeble assistant's attempt to yours!
BTW, Scooter says Ethel is "hot". But he is kinda a rounder . Sunny thinks Wally is CUTE. Both think Oscar is just scarey!
