Dog in heat!!!! »

It is the perfect day. The afternoon heat has somewhat mellowed and there is no signs of rain. As you walk to score nearby transportation, you spot something… not so normal. Something quite natural, that perhaps you yourself have not done in weeks… months… or even years.

Two… dogs… mating.

Hmmm…

While most of the townsfolk either giggle or let them be, you observe their pattern. First up, they are not doing the position named after them. For actual humans, it should be difficult, but for them, back against each other, they look like they are pleased. Hey, if you are living in the slums of Manila, dogs that are on the street are mostly 1/16th of their true breed.

Imagine if they let loose a Poodle with a Doberman? Could a macho dog be any gayer?

So that’s why if you’re ultra-driven to get it on then and there, you are called “dog in heat”! Dogs don’t care if you’re staring at them. Dogs have like this other dimension where they acquire bliss and tranquility whenever that moment is unmasked. Even when other stray dogs come forward and smell their butts, which are obviously connected, they wouldn’t mind.

Well, at some point… if the other dog gets rowdy the male would open his spotty gums and lash out with a Rambo-like energy to rid of the “competition”. If they lose connection then they’ll do the position named after them and then go to the position which they are comfortable in.

Of course, if the dog lashes out on a human, three worse things should surely happen: First up, they will get watered, or they will get whacked with a stick, and lastly, you could throw salt at them.

And the next scene wouldn’t sound pretty.

Vick to the Doghouse »

He was once looked as a champion. Then he became an embarrassment.

Michael Vick is the top pick overall in the 2001 NFL Draft. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback is arguably one of the best quarterbacks ever. Owning NFL records for rushing, the 3-time Pro Bowl seemed headed to greatness.

But how can a person known for his excellent decision-making skills fumble? He was a person kids should look up to, but what on earth was he thinking?

167 million US Dollars… down the drain.

Vick is facing federal criminal prosecution for financing dog fights and executions. Alongside three of his cohorts, Bad Newz Kennels have been operating the illegal venture for six years, with no remorse to animal welfare what’s-so-ever. I guess Vick dug the idea of making living things compete. I can dig that actually, but killing the helpless animals after they lost?

Too cruel.

Now in cockfights, if a cock dies, it will serve their purpose elsewhere. Probably in a kitchen since after all, eating chickens isn’t taboo. Eating dogs meanwhile, is a crime.

Since Vick and his cohorts couldn’t think of anything better to do other than treat these dogs with hurtful disdain, they shoot the poor mutts without anguish. And because of this cruelty, a bigger price will be in Vick’s head.

After pleading guilty, the once regarded Vick will be another wasted talent who’s going to serve at least five years in the “doghouse”. As for returning to the league, the PETA will storm football organizations once they give Vick a contract. Forget a Hall of Fame citation too, as per the title; he is not capable to join the ranks of the greats.

How quickly did Vick turned from the top pick… to a classless, sick dick.

Talk about getting bit in the rear.

Presenting the World’s Largest Dog »

At first glance Zorba sounds like an interplanetary character. Perhaps a planet or a spaceship that shoots a gazillion laser beams that can destroy planets with one massive strike.

Well, Zorba can actually destroy you with one massive strike but it can also love you.

Huh?

You see, Zorba is the current holder of the World’s Largest Dog record, as proclaimed by the Guinness Book of World Records. The dog weighs 343 pounds. 343 pounds!?!? That’s like ten averaged-sized preschoolers weighed in from a sandbox, carrying their lunchboxes!

I fear for the mailman that’s working on Zorba’s block.

And imagine Zorba chasing cars? Clone him three-fold and that’s the actual scene from Jurassic Park!

And yes, I’m not making this up. You see Zorba comes from the ENGLISH MASTIFF breed. Mastiffs are said to be Britain’s oldest pooch and the name came evolved from an Anglo-Saxon word which means powerful. Mastiffs did not reach America until the late 1800’s.

However, Zorba’s breed is a head case for a bunch of diseases as mastiffs are greatly susceptible for arthritis, crippling lameness, and bloated stomach. That means he can have the ability of rhythmic farting without any notice and tearing your eyes and nose off with a colossal piece of poop!

Eww.

However, It is said that these dogs are majestic known for their valor and poise. Sure, you say what’s the basis of this information? The breed has a long history of military accomplishments – at times accompanying their masters during battle trained to maul and cream unrecognized schemers. Until now the mastiffs are possessive and protective to their masters despite their thirst for blood replaced by their newfound easy-going and loving nature.

So before toying with Zorba’s masters, imagine those Schwarzenegger and Stallone movies with you as the victim.

I wonder.

Ugliest Dogs are In »

Pets world wide have their own sets of adoring public, who simply can’t resist these lovable creatures. Dogs are among those animals that ranked first in terms of being domesticated and being kept of as pets at home. Dogs simply have their own ways to charm our hearts, and we simply adore them by their looks and their tricks.

Commonly, our dogs have endearing looks almost next to perfection with respect to their physique and their sweet faces. What happens next when a dog is deformed, unattractive and hideous looking all at the same? Humans tend to neglect and have a laugh at them and considered them ugly for all intents and purpose. But ugly is such a strong word for these dogs. After all they also need some tender loving care. Nevertheless, do not worry there are without doubt kind hearted souls all over the world who took it upon them to care for these so called ugliest dogs.

A pioneering event like the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California launches the “World’s Ugliest Dog” tilt. It has become a part of the annual fair celebration since 2000. Such an event raises higher consciousness on humans that beauty is undeniably skin dip. Such event features some of the ugliest dogs you have seen. It may be revolting to look at them, but once you have read their human’s commentary on the dogs, you can not help but feel the happiness their owners felt upon having these ugly dogs with them. Most of these ugliest dogs were acquired by their owners through animal shelters and most of them were abandoned and were distorted. Most of the participants are Chinese Crested hairless dogs, Chihuahua and many are deserted dogs among others. Another astonishing feat for these ugly dogs was TV appearances and being photographed among others. Their owners were financially rewarded as well.

Ugliest dogs can never be synonymous to ugly after all, because love and caring transcends deformity and ridicule among others.
