twisted puppy

The entries are in for the What does RC Mean To You? contest! Take a peek at the sidebar and vote for your favorite by the end of the month. The winner will get a goodie basket from Liberal Collegeville that is guaranteed to be worth your effort. Remember to vote! It is, after all, an Election year. A big thanks to everyone who entered.


And on the subject of election year - our governor ROCKS. When we moved to Kansas a lot of our very liberal California friends were very concerned. This was right about the time of the whole evolution/school board debacle and it didn't look good at all. And now look. As my (very political) mom loves to point out - we have a woman who is a Democrat and they have...the Gubernator.


Speaking of my mom, she sent me a really cute clip that I have to share with all the dog lovers. Even if you're not a dog lover this is incredible.






The dog is amazing with what he does, but...am I the only one slightly disturbed by the imagery of a woman who seems to be trying to seduce her dog? I'm not a prude or anything. I kiss my dogs on the lips all the time and at least one of them is always trying to slip me the tongue. But I don't dress up like Dominatrix Sandy from Grease when I do it.


It kind of reminds me of that Nip/Tuck episode with the jealous man who traveled all the time, the lonely wife, the big guard dog and the jar of peanut butter. It didn't end well for the dog, let me tell you. And the woman was played by Melissa Gilbert who was Laura in the Little House on the Prairie series, for pete's sake. I didn't think it got that lonely out on the prairie.


Kind of gives a new meaning to Those Happy Golden Years, doesn't it?

*************************************************************************************
UPDATE: New deadline is 8pm tonight. If you have an entry send it to me at rottencorrespondent@gmail.com and I'll set up a second poll. You can pick one entry from each poll and then we'll have a run-off with the winner of each. Easy peasy.

Stacie said...

That is the cutest! I can't believe I missed the contest! I swear I am losing it lately. I need to work on my own name for you...not for the contest, just because I think I could come up with a good one.

ciara said...

Jo Beaufoix said...

You see I missed this somehow. But you are so many of them. :D

It was nice to see the way I voted is the popular one so far. I have no idea why though.

And the dog? Cute. The woman? Scary.

Potty Mummy said...

That is hilarious. But you realise you just shattered my illusions; do you mean that Laura Ingalls wasn't really that girl? I thought she would be married with 3 kids and living on the prairie with Almanzo by now...

laurie said...

that dog looks so much like my toby i can hardly stand it.

and i think dog dancing is just flat-out weird.

and....your contest is closed already???? shit.

Kaycie said...

That dog is seriously cute.

Lisa said...

I've got chills... They're multiplying... Cute dog... Not so sure about his dance partner...

The Rotten Correspondent said...

Okay, everyone - I'm opening the contest for one more day. Email me your entries by the end of the day today and I'll put another poll up. Then we'll have a run off.

nearlydawn - would you really want her giving your husband lessons dressed like that??

stacie - gee. No time to enter contests? Could it be because you HAVE A NEW BABY AT HOME??????

ciara - girlfriend, you didn't send me any. You left a comment that you were going to, but you never did. I checked like four times. Send 'em in now. Please?

Jo - if you get a chance shoot one this way.

potty mummy - yeah, it shattered mine too. Just not the way I pictured Laura ending up.

laurie - second chance. And I'm sorry about the dog. I didn't even think of Toby or I swear I wouldn't have posted it.

kaycie - he is, isn't he? And smart, too.

lisa - if she had sung You're the one that I want to him I would have been outta there.

I am de-lurking for my compliment instead of comment day. I want you to know I've been lurking for a little while, and really enjoy your sense of humor and REALLY enjoy your ER stories, I have some of my own and although I still don't work there I do miss the adrenaline rush.

Thank you!

Simply Jenn said...

Hi RC. It's for absolutely anyone. It's not a group at all, it's just something I do every few months on a whim. It's funny, the complimentING is so much more inspriational than being complimentED. Feel free to go and share the love with your peeps!

Akelamalu said...

That dog dances better than MWM!

Altaglow said...

I thought the dog was incredible in the video--which is why I sent it to you. Now, after all the thoughts of dominatrix clothing--and God forbid, peanut butter--I'm wondering what I could have been thinking?

kitten said...

That video was awsome! Boy! Did you ever get some responce on the RC. Cool!

Omega Mum said...

I have to say I had the same thoughts about that uneasy feeling. Boy meets girl, loses girl, gets girl, fine. Girl meets dog......Leda meets swan. I think not?

Omega Mum said...

PS Thought I'd blogroll you if that's OK with you. My daughter kisses dogs on the lips, too....Only after the first date, of course.

ciara said...

really confused

really crisp

rotten cook (this is me lol)

ragin' cajun

Eileen said...

That was so cute and funny. I can't believe they can teach a dog to do that!! I am lucky if I can get Sadie to get off my chair or move out of the way, so I don't trip over her. I still think my Sadie has more talent in her one huge paw......
XOXOXO

Amy said...

I've seen this video before, and, oddly, I was just thinking about it a couple days ago. How cool you posted it. That is a happy dog. I don't want to think about how happy.

Thalia's Child said...

I'm excited about the contest....

Willowtree said...

I wonder how long it took the dog to teach her those moves.

Nearlydawn said...

If her giving lessons in that costume would teach him to dance I might be OK with it. :)
