The Stars Hollow Gazette

In Stars Hollow it’s finally Fall and there are wet leaves on the streets which reminds me of my dog Dally the Dalmatian.

Dalmatians are prone to kidney problems and Dally peed everywhere including my leg at obedience class, had to run home and change my pants.

Part of the training was to walk him, so I did.  It was dark and wet and I’m not sure what Dally saw when he took off because I was totally taken by surprise.

He weighed about half me, but my feet were on wet leaves so part way across the street was kind of like water skiing (and you thought Ralph was a bad Uncle).

The leaves burned out and I was dragged for a while before I could get the leash off.  I suppose you could call it payback.

Well it ruined my good knee and I had to crawl back to my house and bang on the door and scream until someone rescued me, but it evened out in the end.  I’m still here.

    Good Boy!

    A man out hunting in Iowa was shot in the leg after a hunting dog stepped on his gun, authorities said.

    The accident happened after James Harris, 37, put his gun on the ground to retrieve a fallen pheasant.

    One of a pack of hunting dogs following behind stepped on the trigger, and up to 120 birdshot pellets hit Mr Harris in the left calf at short range.

    A local official told a news agency the injury was “not life-threatening, but will give him trouble for a long time”.

    Alan Foster, a spokesman for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, told AFP it was not uncommon for hunters to be shot by their dogs.

    “I hear about it a couple times a year,” somewhere in the country, he said.

    “They’ll step on the trigger assembly and, if the gun for whatever reason wasn’t on safety, it doesn’t take a whole lot to trip a trigger.”

    Mr Harris was treated at Grinnell Regional Medical Center and later transported by helicopter to University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City, following the accident in Poweshiek County on Saturday afternoon.

     

  6. No idea why. Arno, the Dutch Shepherd, is about 55 pounds of spastic energy. I had a lab mix who was about 80 pounds.

    I always wanted a Great Dane. We also have a border collie who was abused in her other life and does not fetch, herd, or do anything except flop on her belly for belly rubs.

    Our cats might flip out if we got another dog. I dropped a hint and my husband grumbled and said that we really should have gotten a King sized bed to accommodate everybody.

    However, I really like your charming Frenchman, ek. He looks like a troublemaker. Suits the owner,Yes?

    Most of the Health Care lobby money is going to the Dems — for the first time in years and years. I guess the handwriting is on the wall. What do you think the medical corporations will want in return?

    People in the health care industry say the giving reflects a growing sense that the Democrats are in a strong position to win the White House next year. It also underscores the industry’s frantic effort to influence the candidates, as Democrats push their proposals to address what many polls show is a top concern among voters.
