Merry Christmas!


Christmas Eve Dinner, originally uploaded by Lindsay Beyerstein.

Edward R. Murrow: We'll split the advertising, Fred [Friendly] and I. He just won't have any presents for his kids at Christmas.

Sig Mickelson: He's a Jew.

Edward R. Murrow: Well don't tell him that. He loves Christmas.--Good Night, and Good Luck. (2005)

(Nobody told the Beyersteins, either.)

Addendum: Renowned atheist Richard Dawkins celebrates Christmas, too.

Big Brown Poodle Eyes

Another picture of Miles enjoying the snow.

Miles has developed some fascinating new behaviors since I last saw him. He's still a puppy, but he's closing in on adolescence.

Dio, my uncle's Sheltie, is visiting this week. Dio is constantly trying to swipe Miles' rawhide bones. Miles has figured out that if he puts his bones up on the ottoman or the couch, the much shorter Dio can't get at them.

Miles is also learning how to grab and swat with his front legs, much to Dio's dismay. Miles can now smack him down without standing up.

Most dogs don't use their front legs for much beyond locomotion. Whereas, poodles do a lot of swatting, grabbing, and reaching for objects with their long, flexible forelimbs.
