Doberman Gang, move over!

May 5, 2008

dortmund-bulldog-1-160.jpgBlog Guy, I know you’ve written about those crazy German highways with no speed limits. I recently heard that they even let dogs drive. My friend saw one smoking a big cigar and driving 140 miles an hour!

Sounds like he saw the Stogie Doggies of Dortmund, among the worst of the dog gangs.

Uh, you mean there are more?

Oh sure. That country has a canine gang war problem like you wouldn’t believe. I’m talking about the Burger Kings of Hamburg, the Hot Dogs of Frankfurt, the Smelly Shi Tsus of Cologne, the Bad Bad Barkers of Baden-Baden…

Bad Bad Barkers of Baden-Baden? Now that’s just silly!

Yeah? I wouldn’t let a Barker hear you say that.

Pedigreed dog. Smoking. Gas-guzzling Hummer. Where does one begin?

I laughed at this and wondered about how pampered this dog was – until I opened my e-mail and found spam for a retirement home for cats in Palm Beach.

What do cats retire from exactly?

A French bulldog with a big fat Cuban cigar and wearing a (I made this part up) Italian bandana is ‘riding’ in a Chinese manufactured toy American Hummer in Dortund, Germany. Huh. And some folks die of extreme old age without ever having left Pennsylvania.

If the bed of the truck were filled with cocaine, beer and doughnuts, I’d swear Belushi was enjoying a reincarnation.
