Happy Birthday, Laci (the real dog).

To an amazing companion of over 11 years.  I think this song pretty much sums you up:

Happy Birthday.  May we have many more years of cool adventures together.

Gypsy Rose Lee and Her Cresteds

I was looking for pictures of a dog drawn by Doctor Seuss that looked like a Chinese crested and found another pic of Gypsy Rose Lee with one of her dogs.

This gypsyroseleepic on the left was taken by the Photographer Weegee (the pseudonym of Arthur Fellig).  I may have posted the other one of her.
For those not in the know, Gypsy Rose Lee was one of the people who introduced this breed into the US.

Doctor Seuss did use a Chinese Crested

Well, I always thought a Chinese Crested looked as if it were drawn by Doctor Seuss.  It seems I am correct!
Dog show
Unfortunately, this pic is too realistic.  I would really expect something much more Seussian.

But, it is fun to see an actual Chinese Crested in the Doctor Seuss books.

Chinese Crested Meme

Despite naming this blog after my dog, I hardly ever mention her.

But I thought I would post this given the derogatory comments made about Chinese Cresteds. Chinese Cresteds

Laci does her Yoga!

Downward Dog, and she’s a natural!

The internet being what the internet is, I don’t mind people using this image provided they give credit to me for it.

Or send me any products made with the image! Thank you.

Dog amongst the ruins

I found this while looking over the pictures for the trip I mentioned in my Weekend fun! post. It’s another picture of Laci enjoying her freedom on our weekend escape.

We were pretty much to only beings in the area, which mean that Laci was off lead. She was able to chase squirrels, sniff, and generally explore within reason and eye shot.

And since this is technically her blog, here’s another picture of her enjoying her freedom.

The Chinese Crested from Animal Planet

I would have preferred their ad where the burglar is breaking in to a house and the Chinese Crested Growls at him, but…

So, I Sez to th’ Bird, if she was gan drown them poopies, I’d taak th’ one with th’ pink nose.

That joke is soooo oooollllllddd.

The Bird in question is Gypsy Rose Lee (AKA Rose Louise Hovick).

While she is known for having been a stripper, it’s a footnote that she bred Chinese Cresteds! She also founded one of the first kennels dedicated to breeding Chinese Crested dogs in the U.S, “Lee”, which was sold after her death to Mrs. Ida Garrett and Debora Wood. She is also given credit for having introduced the breed to the US.  Here she is with a few of her dogs:

This means I have a connection to her since my dogs have all been descendants of hers.

And where the title for this post comes from is that Laci has a pink nose.

Seems appropriate!

Ta ennyway!!
