Now Introducing....

Let's see. What can we talk about this afternoon? Well, we can ponder how over 70 students were caught cheating at the elite Stuyvesant High School in NYC and how the students justify it. Or we could talk about how the the Speaker of the NY State Assembly Sheldon Silver (D/Manhattan) used tax payer dollars to pay off a victim of our own serial sex offender slash State Legislator Vito Lopez (D/[expletive]). Naah, I think I'd rather talk about my new puppy.

I would like to introduce you to Hugo Chi-vez, my new 5-month old Chihuahua. So far he has not lied, cheated, or wasted one penny of taxpayer money, though he has had his way with a roll of toilet paper...

Here is his new bed...[note the "Dallas Cowboy" t-shirt in the corner. Yes, he has a t-shirt. Don't judge me...]
Many of you are long-time dog owners, so any advice you can give me on how to raise a healthy and happy dog will be much appreciated. Okay, cat owners can participate if you want because we do not discriminate here at Commentarama and cats are people too [and because Miss Kitty Kelly may be reading over LawHawk's shoulder]


FYI - I am currently in Texas picking up my new puppy and spending the afternoon eating Fletcher's Corny Dogs at the State Fair of Texas. I will be responding sporadically, but please feel free to change the subject Commentarama-style!

Kitty Kelly says that she will not comment on a dog that is smaller than she is. On the other hand, Niko the Wonder Dog looked at the picture and woofed "snack." LOL

I recommend roasting the dog in a covered pan at 350 degrees for about 2 hours. It's done when it's tender. You can season it however you like, but just salt and pepper is good enough. Michelle likes to serve it with an arugula salad.

Hugo Chi-vez! LOL! Hilarious Bev! Good luck with the new family member!

BevfromNYC said...

Well, Barack, maybe I'll just strap my little Hugo onto the roof of my SUV in a cushy custon cage...I can even make it a GM SUV if that will help you out!

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, I can't believe you named your dog after Hugo Chavez?! LOL! That's brilliant! Bravo!

AndrewPrice said...

Out of curiosity, can you keep a dog in NYC?

BevfromNYC said...

Thanks Terry! I'm going to need all the good luck I can get, I'm thinking of making him a little military uniform for Halloween. Tee-hee-hee.

Mitt Romney said...

Just be sure he's house broken before you strap him to the car. No amount of windshield wiper fluid can help you if you don't.

BevfromNYC said...

Andrew - Well, since he is a Chihuahua, I knew it had to be a Spanish name and what better than a blood thirty South American Dictator! I chose Hugo Chavez first and then realize it could be "Chi-vez". It made me laugh.

And of course I can keep a dog in NYC. All I have to do it pay a large fee to "register" him. He may not WANT to stay as he is a country dog.. My first hurdle is getting him in the carrier to take him on the plane...

BevfromNYC said...

LawHawk - Tell Niko that Hugo can run underneath his legs...and under the furniture. Hah!! And Miss Kelly is a feline and her reaction is not surprising...cats are superior in intellect, but dogs can wag their tails. Hah!!

BevfromNYC said...

BTW, it is pouring outside, so no State Fair for me today.

AndrewPrice said...

So it's State UNfair then?

I like the name a lot -- Chi-Vez. LOL!

Getting him in the plane will be difficult. DHS may not let him board if he's on a terrorism list. ;)

BevfromNYC said...

Good point Andrew. I guess he will have to travel incognito. I'll call him "Barack" that ought to get us through he palace guard!

BevfromNYC said...

Oh, and "State UNFair"...LOL, nice one!

AndrewPrice said...

Thank you! I'll be performing all week! Tell your friends! ;)

Speaking of flying, my sister used to run into trouble because she had the same name and a similar birthday (one year off) to a drug dealer. So she always got pulled aside and checked out.

Good luck with little "Barack".

Things to watch out for from a dog named Hugo Chi-Vez in order:

1. Your cockroaches become unionized and start demanding more food left out over night - or they'll drown themselves in your morning coffee cup.

2. Dog insists that the end of the leash that usually goes around his neck instead go around yours - in the name of "fairness".

3. Cockroach union votes Hugo "head of household".

4. Small posters with heroic pictures of Hugo on them tacked up about the house. Also spray painted slogans denouncing the local imperialist dog catcher and the cat next door.

5. Evidences of Iranian or Russia airbase in your back yard.

We demand safer working conditions, starting with the discontinuing of all pesticides and shoes.

BevfromNYC said...

Good points K. I will remove any poster making materials and I'm thinking of getting a puppy-cam just to make sure that no illicit activities like super secret pro-Hugo rallies can occur. I am also concerned about the underground mouse syndicate. One never can be too careful with South American Dictators AND puppies. Both can be devious.

BevfromNYC said...

Hey Cockroach Local 87 - I have just one word for you....RAID!!!!

T-Rav said...

Gee, I hope those students at Stuyvesant High have been able to forgive themselves. You know, if they feel too guilty about that cheating thing, their self-esteem could really be damaged.

T-Rav said...

On Hugo Chi-vez: Please, please tell me you're not going to dress him up for Halloween. Seriously.

Cockroach Local 87 said...

RAID!?

*poof!*

BevfromNYC said...

T-Rav - Don't judge me...;-)

And yes, the Stuyvesant kids are just so "But it so hard and we HAVE to cheat to get into Harvard!" What does that say about Harvard. Just a bunch of cheats...didn't Obama go there? Hmmmm.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, Isn't cheating on a self-esteem test is the ultimate proof of failure in the self-esteem department?

And generally I do not like people dressing their dogs, but I think in this case it would be appropriate! :)

K said...

The Dogitator.

T-Rav said...

Andrew, the self-esteem department is proof of the failure of self-esteem. Yeah, I went there. :-)

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, LOL! So so so true. :)

BevfromNYC said...

Oh, dear, the Ministry of Self Esteem. Just wait. Bloomberg will install that for ALL NY'ers. We will have to submit to 15 minutes of self praise every day at 11am in front of mirrors.

Individualist said...

Well so long as Hugo Chi vez does not smell Brimstone everywhere he goes I think he will do just fine.
