It’s been a great ride. Some of you have been with me for many years, some are new friends that I've had the pleasure to discover, and sadly, so many of my buddies through the years have let their blogs go dark. We should make a rule that you can't stop blogging without my permission and two other readers.
I can’t believe how fast time has gone. I have a theory that the entire universe is speeding up. No one has tried to refute the theory.
There are times when I think I may have stayed too long at the fair. Maybe I have. Blogging has changed through the years. Change is not my friend, but I don’t want to be a dinosaur. And then a dog story comes along and I am reminded of my original purpose back in my first post: To celebrate the remarkable, the ordinary and the very funny dogs who live among us.
No one seems to mind when I stray off topic. I'm grateful to still be getting 600-700+ page views a day without doing expensive promotion and marketing.
And finally--I wanted to end this 3000th post with something that is symbolic and poetic, something off the wall--and I found it.

It is spectacularly preserved, about 6 feet in length and coated with dense hair-like feathers over much of its body with giant quill feathers on its wings and tail.
It was a meat eater with a mouth filled with sharp teeth.
Steve Brusatte, a University of Edinburgh paleontologist, has called the dinosaur...
wait for it...
wait for it...
“fluffy feathered poodle from hell.”
I am not making this up. Source
