This 'N That Thursday: Canines as a Sapien Food Source

No gallines or melagrines (turkeys) were harmed in the writing of this post

Welcome to This 'N That Thursday!

It’s a little of this and a little of that and everything in between…

Hosted by 2 brown dawgs & Ruckus the Eskie. Please hop on and join the fun!

I have heard that certain cultures feed on canine meat. Usually this information comes from word of mouth. First from my sapiens hearing it around, and then it reaches my ears. My initial reaction was definitely disgust when I first heard about it. How could sapiens want to eat something like me? Aren't we considered sapien's best friend? Even though that saying seems to be of American origin, we take it for granted that it should also be a view shared around the world. However, it seems other cultures might not agree.

PSA: This 'N That Thursday - Limiting where Canines Can Roam in San Francisco

I am pleased to announce that I am co-hosting a blog hop with not ONE, but TWO canines! Two browns make a white?! Thank you to 2 Brown Dawgs for the original theme. Today is "...a little of this and a little of that and everything between..."

Grab the badge and join the hop.  All are welcome! Happy This N' That Thursday (TNT), everybody!

Here's my addition to this week's hop:

There has been recent news of a debate between sapiens in San Francisco, California. Should dogs be allowed to roam one of the most welcoming beaches for off-leash canines in the National Park Service?

Save me, San Francisco!

Canines in Video Games

My male sapien plays video games, and he shared with my female sapien the article (excuse the language in the write-up) he read above, featuring this spectacular image. He said, "This dog has stopped terrorist helicopters. What has Ruckus done, lately?!"

Dying Dogs in Advertising - Mercy (Friday the 13th Edition!)

Last week, I ran across a story about a huge backlash for an advertisement by Pearl Izumi and thought this topic is suitable for Friday the 13th. On my walks, I have seen Pearl Izumi gear on trail-runners and cyclists. But, I have never encountered a situation like the one depicted below!

In honor of Patriot Day (9/11)

Twelve years ago, our nation was shaken by the attack in New York City. Do you remember where you were?

In remembrance of all that we lost during that tragedy, please remember to love and cherish everyone around you. Time is very precious.

Group Hug!

Could You be the Next Mayor of Your City?

I recently came across an article commemorating the life of Bosco, the black Labrador mix. Bosco held the position of mayor for ten years in the village of Sunol, California (a little northeast of Fremont) until his passing in 1994. It got me thinking: maybe I should run for Mayor in my city. I have strong affiliations with the Re-pup-lican party! Would you vote for me?

What other species can be my Doppelgänger?

Quite a stir has been brought up by the recent news about a Tibetan mastiff disguised as a mountain lion in People's Park of Luohe in Henan, China. No, for all you Bay Area inhabitants, this is not the same as the homeless People's Park in Berkeley, CA.
