Tiny Dog Cause of Climate Change
Scientists at Western Podunk University have determined the true cause of climate change. It is a dog so tiny that it is acting as a "black hole," sucking good weather into orbit around its miniscule body.
"We were as shocked as anyone," said Henry Hassenpfeffer, lead scientist of the university's What the Heck is Happening team. "But facts are facts, and this tiny beagle is indeed the cause of our unsettled weather."
Researchers speculate that the pup, named Biggie, could be turned into a bargaining chip for world peace.
"If we could get Biggie to eat more, and grow, then his gravitational field will actually diminish. The climate will stop changing. But everyone's got to behave or we'll keep Biggie his same size, and the climate will continue to degrade. We will fly Biggie over bad countries and make their summer really, really miserable, if they refuse to play nice in the world."
But Biggie's owner isn't sure about the plan to fatten up her pet. "He's happy the way he is. We go everywhere together. I just put him in my pocket and off we go, shopping, restaurants, anywhere. I'm all for world peace, but not at the expense of losing my running buddy."
When confronted about the rumor that she has bred a chihuahua even smaller than the friendly beagle, she would only say, "I have no comment about Jumbo."

Free Vintage Images
This first image shows a typical big sister-little sister interaction. The older sister is clearly twisting lil' sis's poor arm. Ouch. "Give me that basket, you little brat!" [Note: These images are NOT altered.]
This next image shows what happens when farmers let their sheep join fraternities. Baaaaad to the bone.
These last few Easter images are my original work. I know I rarely showcase my own drawings, fer fear of inciting envy.
My Favorite Type of Blog Posts
I just LOVE blog posts all about donkey frens' GRANDCHILDREN and toddlers. I like to hear about every single thing they do. But I'm not talking about folks with just 50% kid-related posts. I'm talking those with 90% or more time devoted to the wee ones.
In fact, those posts are ALMOST as interesting as my very own HADJI the lil' black cat posts.
I know everyone wishes I would talk about HADJI more, but I don't want to make any of YOU feel bad that YOU don't have such an extremely interesting alley cat to write about.
Hey, look, here is ANOTHER Hadji picture, this time of him eating! WOW!
Here he is turned around, eating.
Here's one of him in the grass! FASCINATING, I know! What big fangies Hadji-woo has!
And here he is, approximately two seconds later! Looka his ratty fur!
Tomorrow I'll talk about how cute he is some more!
Can You Help?
I've mentioned having a tailless squirrel in the yard before. Donkey frens, this is YOUR chance to help purchase a prosthetic tail for the poor creature. If everyone just clicks HERE -- and I implore you to click it -- if everyone gives just a lil' bit, this squirrel will be able to hold its lil' flea-bitten head up and go out amongst the other squirrels with pride. Won't you donate today? Thank'ee.
