Say, what?


Wednesday, July 05, 2006


You gotta love people and their dogs.

I was e-mailed this picture from the Pasquale Family who say their 12-year-old bichon frise's dying wish is to be in the newspaper. OK, so he's not a poodle.

Well, this isn't the printed page either, but it's the best I can do for Spike who's from Chadwick Beach.

Forget about the fact that his owners spayed him with red and blue paint. What I want to know is who gave him the JetSki lessons?

And to think I got bombarded with e-mails from animal-rights people when I wrote my grandmother put peanut butter on our dog's palate and pretended like he was talking as he licked it off.

God bless the dog-maybe the paint didn't agree with him

I am one of the proud owners of Spike, and for the record- it's just magic marker! Hope everyone enjoys!

Hi.. this is Spike. I wear a lifevest when I am on boats and waverunners. The WASHABLE magic markers are fine for me. I've been wearing marker for 12 years now, and I've never had a single problem. What's more- I love the attention. So, please, lighten up. Ruv, Spike

I agree with Spike! Give him and his owners (who I'm sure love him very much and wouldn't do anything to harm him) a dog-gone break, after all.

I am sure if you "asked" him Spike would say, "Pleeeeze leave me alone..I am NOT a doll or an easel"!

Where else in the world do people have to time or resources to color their dog with washable markers and let him drive a jet ski? Spike looks like an astro pop. YUM!!

Hey concerned vet- since you are a "doctor", please tell us by what mechanism washable magic marker is harmful to a dog. We are all very curious since Spike's father is an MD and thinks you're ill-informed. Spike's not eating the markers in question. They are non-toxic. Our(non-cyber) vet says they are perfectly fine. Oh, and we just asked Spike, and he said "get a life.. or pet my belly."

For more information about Spike, the EXTREMELY HAPPY AND SPOILED DOGGIE, please go to his website:
