Gratuitous Dog Love

Wait, somehow that sounds wrong...

Anyway, as there is still no news fit to print in the hockey world, I've decided to take this opportunity to repost my favorite Red Wings photo ever:

Total thanks to NOHS for finding it first! Aren't they just the cutest couple?!

Those (3) of you who actually pay attention to my Tweets might recall that I am shamelessly a big dog person, as evidenced by my home, currently occupied by a coonhound mix (a paltry 85 lbs), a Bernese Mountain Dog (87 lbs and needing at least 5-7 more), and a mastiff (140 lbs FTW!). So naturally, when I first read about Reuben, I knew he and I were soul mates, but now that I've seen his photo I can totally confirm that he's even better looking than his owner. I wonder how he is on the ice?

Reuben, I love you!!! Call me!!!

**Ed.s Note: You see what happens to this blog during the off season? It sucks in non-hockey ways as well as in its normal hockey-related ways. Tragic. Is it October yet?


  1. How did I not know about the coonhound mix? I feel so ashamed. And this blog does not suck in either hockey-related or non-hockey related ways. Dogs rock!

    Also, I love how Reuben's head is bigger than Patrick's!

  2. Thanks, I appreciate!

    The coonhound mix actually belongs to my housemate, but he's my goddog, so I count him anyway. And yes, Reuben looks bigger than Patrick all around. And I don't even mean that in a dirty way.

  3. big dog fan here too!! and a moderate RWB&B fan also. ;)
