Rose - Because I don't have any cat pictures to post

time to read 2 min | 209 words

Well, apparently is is customary for bloggers that do not have anything to post to put some pictures of their cat. I don't have a cat, but I have a this shy little dog that I adore, her name is Rose.


Of course, that doesn't really give you any sense of scale, so here is her standing up, I am a big guy, her nose topped six feet by a fair margin. (about 1.85 for the civilized among us).


And, of course, the other side, here is her after I let her know that I am going away for a few weeks. I hope the bruises will heal soon, but for now, I need to move a bit carefully.


And no, it is not going to become a theme in this blog. But I found myself explaining to people on the phone all too often why they suddenly hear cries of "No, you are not supposed to eat cats!" and "Damn it already, I am not edible, get that through your head" or just "Argh!".

I hope this clarify things a bit.



Your dog looks like a real pal. I have 5 and hand cook meals for them twice a day. Are they spoiled or what?

They come in my programming room around 9 AM and 5 PM like clockwork wanting me to stop coding and start cooking!

Nope, you got it Right :)

I love big dogs, my last dog was a Greyhound but she unfortunately passed away last year.

I would like an Irish Wolfhound but my Wife wont let me!

Ah, beautiful dog. I have a German Shepherd, Duke, who looks like Rose only larger, as the male shepherds get really big.

Beautiful dog, thanks for the post.
