Out and about

Though there was a chill in the air, I decided yesterday to visit the local dog park. It had been awhile since I last proselytized there, so the timing seemed right. Unfortunately, the park was nearly deserted. I sniffed a 7-month-old pug pup a bit and tried to spread my message of peace and rawhide to a timid little white dog. But after the pug puppy left, there was no one left to preach to. Only one dog remained, and he was busy dashing up and down the fenceline mirroring some of the canines in the big-dog park. After a long workweek at the mosque, I simply didn't have the energy to keep up.

So we departed the park and visited a nearby store called Woof. It is owned and operated by a pug named Wilbur, and he even has his own business card and Web site. Unfortunately, Wilbur was out of the office. Perhaps, God willing, my social life will improve today.

Chin up Mugsy, you can't let the lack of social life get you down. It's probably because of the holiday tomorrow.

What in the Sam Hill? Why did the link I wanted to show you link you to my blogger page? Twice?!

Weird.

Anyway, go to the "handsome hounds" page of the Woof website to see the sweater that would look so right on these cold days in the dog park.

Thank you for the words of encouragement, Boomer, Carol and Lepug.

Nice threads, Sarah O. I bought my OU jersey at Woof. My only problem with Wilbur's store is that he doesn't stock official Ayatollah Mugsy merchandise.

I don't think I could ever chew on a bone and sulk at the same time, Anonymous One.

Does Wilbur's store carry Eagle's jerseys there? I may need a new one as I have a feeling my McNabb jersey will become passe' soon.

We will definitely have to visit there soon to meet Wilbur!

I don't know, Eagle. I know the store carries Cowboys jerseys. Maybe you could get one of those. :)

I'll keep an eye out for Eagles jerseys the next time I'm there.

It's lonely at the top, my dear Ayatollah.

Mugsy, you do realize my mother would disown me if she caught me wearing a Cowboys jersey, right? She already has her calendar marked for the Eagles game at Texas Stadium in December!

You never know, though, maybe Ranger will join the dark side as a fan of "America's Team". He's clueless.
