My Dog, The Jerk

Hi, I'm Corey, and this is my roommate, Joel. Say hi, Joel. Hi. I have a dog, Pickle, a 3 year old Shiba Inu. For the past 3 years, I've been struggling with Pickle's various (and numerous) quirks - basically, he's an undersocialized, panophobic spaz with ADD, OCD and ED (he's neutered, after all). The ladies love him because he's perhaps the least threatening dog ever. Guys love him, well, because the ladies love him. Until recently, this paragraph would have thoroughly summarized all that is Pickle.

Then, Joel and I found out there is much more to Pickle than we ever could have imagined. See, we can't be around at all times to keep an eye on him. We always assumed he just lounged around the apartment all day, napping and licking his nether-regions. We couldn't have been more wrong.

The truth: My dog, Pickle, is an insufferable, conniving, degenerate, spiteful, gambling-drinking-sex-drug-thrill-addicted jerk.

This blog is a catalog of the photographic evidence of Pickle's path of destruction. If you have a dog who is similarly wreaking havoc on the world like a canine Charlie Sheen freebasing cocaine, please send us your photos, and know that you're not alone.

The gruesome demise of Michele Bachmann this past week got me thinking about another former GOP Presidential candidate.  Tim Pawlenty, former candidate and Governor of Minnesota, quit the GOP race back in August after citing a disappointing performance in the Ames, IA Straw Poll.  As I thought back to the moment when Pawlenty dropped his candidacy, I was reminded that his reasoning sounded fishy, at best:

- He finished in third place out of ten candidates, ahead of front-runner Mitt Romney, and that wasn't good enough??
- He spoke very vaguely regarding his decision to end his candidacy, using phrases like "the pathway forward for me doesn't really exist," and "I thought I would have made a great President, but obviously the pathway isn't there."  A lot of talk about "pathways," not a lot of actual explanation.
- The big question mark:  Pawlenty's withdrawal came only hours after he posted on Twitter, "Our campaign needed to show progress and it did.  I'm eager for the campaign ahead."

Long story short, Pawlenty's White Flag Moment seemed way too sudden for there not to be something else going on in the background to influence his decision-making.  

That's when I found this...
