Coffee and Provocation

Scientists Have No Idea
Scientists have no idea what dinosaurs looked like.  Check out what the "recreationists" do when given common living animals, and you learn quite a lot.

The Dog Dealer That Gave Us the Bulldog
Nothing is as silly as a Pit Bull aficionado who wants to argue that their molosser breed is actually a type of terrier. It isn't. You can can blame the old dog dealers like Bill George, and the romance and ignorance of young wannabes for the confusion.

Here Are the Next 7 Breeds to be  Ruined

The UKC is quickly moving to pre-ruin breeds even before the AKC can close the registry, but it's still the AKC that drives the last nails into the coffin through mandated inreeding inside a closed registry, and a 100-year track record of selecting for defect and exageration. The dogs on the block this year are all minor players in terms of numbers; nothing that will slow the slide of the AKC into oblivion.

In North Carolina
You can own a tiger, a bear, and a monkey.  See what you can own in your state.

The Beginning of the End for the RSPCA?
The RSPCA has devolved into a direct mail scam which does almost nothing for dogs and cats while pocketing hundreds of millions of pounds a year. Sound Familiar? Prince Charles has voiced his "concern' over the RSPCA, putting future royal patronage in doubt.

There's A Donald Trump Gay Erotica Book 
And it's (allegedly) fantastic. Sample: "My loins trembled as the scent of toupee adhesive and spray tan swept through my nasal cavity."

In Memorium
Jeffrey H. Cohen has died.  It sound like he had a great life, with great family and friends.  And he left good instruction for all: "Jeffrey would ask that in lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Donald Trump."

Evidence of Massacre 
The only thing new is the age.

I would not want to bet against the possibility of a tiger, a bear, or a monkey being able to run for political office in North Carolina.
