The Daily Parker

Politics, Weather, Photography, and the Dog

Today's Daily Parker

From our visit to the park Saturday Morning: Parker sees an old friend.

I just missed catching him in his "no one can see me" crouch, in which he, a black dog with a wagging tail on short green grass, completely fails to surprise anything he thinks he's stalking.

Late correction, 12:45 CT: "Old" was exactly the wrong word for two reasons, now that I remember who was there. A 10-week-old golden retiever moved to the neighborhood recently; Parker met her for the first time moments after I took this photo. Unfortunately, Parker doesn't judge size terribly well, and he seems to think all golden retirevers weigh the same as his buddy Dexter (i.e., 42 kg). The puppy kept coming back for more, so I think Parker and she will get along fine.

This little piggy went to hell: Parker disembowels yet another toy, decapitating it in the process.

So sad. This was one of his very first toys: a little squeaky pig that I got at the adoption event back in September.

This is absolutely the last thing you want to see if you're a rabbit. Fortunately, given Parker's hunting skills, it wouldn't actually be the last thing you saw, but it would still scare the pellets out of you:

Just for giggles I took a few photos of Parker as he complained about me going to work this morning. It's easy, by the way, to get him to stop complaining: a frozen, peanut-butter filled Kong works fine. Photo #1 shows him as he realized that I was getting ready to leave:

Photo #2 shows his dissatisfaction with this turn of events:

And yes, Virginia, there is a ParkerCam today (and tomorrow).

One more from yesterday: only this time, I think a caption is in order. Thoughts? How about, "Um...could you give me a push?"

No ParkerCam today or tomorrow. He's at day camp, so I have more time to finish my current project in West Kishinev.
