The Lure of Money

We got my dog about 9 years ago. He is a wonderful dog, and the whole experience of getting him was excellent. I found a breeder of mixed breed dogs, because I have allergies and couldn’t risk getting a shelter pup of questionable lineage. Her dogs were actually cross-breeds, so both parents were purebred. I […]


Accident or Murder?

It is with heavy heart that Phantom Puppy LaFerriere announces the death and removal to a landfill of Baby, his beloved green dinosaur toy. Given to him by his human cousins for Christmas 2010, Baby was carried all over the house, one of the few toys to receive this level of love and attention. As ugly […]


Phantom – Sitting Pretty

I chased my dog around the back yard, offering him cash, fame and dog treats if he would just let me take a few photos of him. He agreed to a dog treat with some people food to be named later.

He was on antibiotics but they ended Tuesday, so this is a little too far […]

I was looking at the dog this morning as I laced up my boots and looked for my hat, and I was annoyed because we can put a man on the moon but we can’t figure out a way to get a 20 pound dog to remove ten inches of snow from the driveway. I […]


What I Was Going to Write

You know, I started to write a post that was me pretending to have a secret insider view of what was going on in Paris Hilton’s jail cell, but you know what? That’s a lot of work that I’m just not prepared to do. Plus, every bozo on the planet is writing the same thing […]


Stupid Movies You’ve Watched 1000 Times

We’re watching one of the two Scooby Doo live action movies – you know, the ones with the CGI Scooby and Freddie Prinze Jr. I just realized this is about the fifth time I’ve watched this one, the Spooky Island one. And you know what? For all the crap reviews it got when it came […]
