gonzo the bouvier

saucisson en croute

This sausage is not technically en croute (that is to say, wrapped in a pastry) but really, the parka effect is much the same. This fellow goes by the name of Dieter. Always amusing when people give their dogs nationally-correct names. The literal translation of the German "dachshund", you might know, is not in fact "snausage" or "wiener" but "badger dog". Feel free to share this little nugget of knowledge at your next holiday party, perhaps when you are jostling for that tray of cocktail sausages.


To all who have been waiting, patiently or not, for new photos. We here at Muttropolitan Diary were experiencing some technical difficulties which have, we believe, been resolved.

For now.

weimeraners waiting

But why have you left us tied up outside this place? In the cold? Why, why, why? For comfort I will rest my gray chin on my brother's back. And wait.

That's some Catahoula

The Muttopolitan Diarist's one and only niece (pictured, left) informed the Diarist that this dog (pictured, right) is an Australian Catahoula Leopard Dog. The Diarist originally thought this niece, who is something of a joker, was joking—mais non. There is in fact such a breed, although there appears to be some debate and said dog might in fact be a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog. At any rate, these dogs are cute and the next time a 13 year-old tries to 'splain you something, pay attention.
