Watching the storm...

...it was quite a downpour

But the sun came out soon after

Rolling around, then...

...catching some Zs

Enjoying the garden, apres-swim

Admiring his new grill

Dog, not a dog? An existential crisis.

"People tell me I'm sweet, does that mean I'm a baked good?"
An entire breed of dogs have found themselves questioning their existence this month, thanks to the "Chihuahua or Muffin" meme making its way around the internet. "One is still what one is going to cease to be and already what one is going to become - does that mean I'm going to become a muffin?" asked Linda, a soulful-eyed Chihuahua aimlessly wandering Toronto's Bayview Village Mall. "I'm not going near that bakery, though."
Via @YMPhillips and @teenybiscuit on Twitter
W Network celebrity and canine Master of Flip Chubbs Wilson was recently weighed in on the controversy:
Dog is not the sum of what he has already, but rather the sum of what he does not yet have, of what he could have. Such as a muffin breakfast. Say, you're not going to eat that, are you, Kortney?

#YULEbeSubversive

It's that time of year again - for more subversion. According to the Columbia Journalism Review, Pinto and Nemorin's Elf on the Shelf controversy was resurrected by social media when last year's elf-centric Washington Post article went viral (again) a year after its initial publication (according the publisher, reaching 450,000 new reads in this first week of December!

Never one to shy away from politics, Humphrey had a "Very [Xavier] Powerman Holiday" photo shoot with none other than St. Nick, who read him Karl Marx's Capital while a sneaky elf looked on. Humphrey's guardian read up on surveillance (sort of) through the classic Graydon Carter masterpiece.

#YULEbeSubversive 2015

It was all good fun, and Humphrey re-watched that elf video which as become a holiday tradition in its third year:





He also participated in lots of decorating at his home, which is the best way to kick of a subversive stretch.

Little sparkly bird in glittery nests in the dining room.

Then the birds get more flamboyant as you approach the living room, especially these on the mantle.

The tree top was so dope, bird dropped his mic.....
....and it's still there at the base of the tree!
Yes, it's festive, alright

"“As a matter of fact, the methods of primitive
accumulation are anything but idyllic,”
Santa read to Humphrey. 

"No wonder this guy wears red," Humphrey thought to himself. 

See you on the flippity!

Tiggers Have Attitudes!

Humphey's best pals are his many animatronic bouncing Tiggers - which, incidentally, are no longer in production because their exuberant display of affection injured children. These mischievous creatures often spend time together after dinner, busting rhymes, dropping mics, and all the other things that kids do these days.


This video (seriously, it contains explicit canine-tiger content, and a parental advisory is in order!) traces Humphrey's lifelong friendship with Tigger.

Stop and smell the flowers


Not long ago, Humphrey's fluffy coiffe meant he didn't want to be outside in the heat....

...but then, Angela fixed all of that, and he is now enjoying all that summer has to offer.

Sometimes, you have stop and smell the roses, or whatever else is available for olfactory sensations!
