Clearing the decks: Short attention span pet blogging

Pet Info

Post it notes. They’re everywhere. Lots of little stuff that just isn’t worth an entire entry but that has gotta be noted nonetheless ….

First, and I’m almost done with Zenyatta blogging (really!), but I gotta say this picture by Mighty Bob Mayberry is my favorite shot of the entire weekend – and it doesn’t even have a horse in it! Check out the reaction shot of Charles Pravata, all-around cool guy and awesome racing photographer, when his girlie Zenyatta showed her pretty, pretty heels to the boys she left eating the rubber racing surface behind her.  Some of Charles’ own pictures of her are on his photostream. One thing all cub reporters learn from Day One (if they’re smart): There are no cooler people on God’s green earth than photojournalists. I’m smart: I learned this and have never forgotten.

OK, now … in no real order …

  • Kudos to Cardinal pet products for taking their manufacturing facility in Southern California off the grid.  Two cool things about this: 1) Solar; and 2) American.  Details here.
  • Check out Nothing else out there like it. Nothing. A dog cartoon a day, inspired by stories shared by dog-lovers. Serious contender for the highly coveted blogroll here, I gotta say.
  • boMy friend Darryl Young snapped a picture of Bo eying a hydrant.  First Dog has paparazzi. Ruff life, that.  D and I were trying to figure out the other day how long we have known each other, and in the end we decided we have known each other for so long that we are not telling how long. That’s a long time.
  • The next time I think my day job sucks, I will pull out a copy of the current issue of the University of California, Davis, vet school newsletter and be grateful I don’t have to write headlines such as, “Carcass Disposal Conference Increases Preparedness” and stories to go with same.  The bigger, sadder news from the same issue is the closing of the country’s very first pet-loss support hotline, a fixture of the UCD vet school for years, and a great training ground for a great many veterinary students. The reason? Budget cuts. Download the newsletter.

More coming … must eat something first.…
