The Summer 2009 column (The Humorless Twit Falls In Love Again) is now online.

Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed, we’re messing around with the home page design again. Might take us a bit to get it right. Until then, thank you for your patience.

Gladys aka Stinkydog

I’m saddened to report my dog Gladys–also known as “Stinkydog”–had to be put to sleep today.

I had adopted Gladys in late 2002 (read more about my dog Gladys here). Although I didn’t know her exact age, it was clear she was an adult the day I adopted her. My guesstimate is that she was about six years old or so when I adopted her.

Gladys had serious kidney failure so, after consulting with the vet, I agreed that the best course of action was to put an end to her suffering. I said goodbye and stayed with her to the very end.

Gladys, you will be missed…

Literally, in the case of this Indian man:

A man in southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony as an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death — an act he believes cursed him — a newspaper reported Tuesday.

Here are some suggestions for where the happy couple should go on their honeymoon:

  • Dalmatia
  • Labrador
  • Chihuahua, Mexico
  • Yorkshire
  • Dog Town, Alabama
  • Doghouse Junction, California
  • Poopout Hill, California
  • Gnaw Bone, Indiana
  • Big Bone Lick, Kentucky
  • Dog Corner, Maine
  • Furry, Mississippi
  • Paw Paw, West Virginia
  • Bitche, France

Two Ohio Wal-Mart employees got married recently–where else?–at the store where they met. Specifically, the lawn and garden department of the store. We suppose they wanted an “outdoors” wedding.
