Class of 2017

Canine College would like to acknowledge our many honors recipients among this year’s graduating class:

  • Randy Floofstein, Veritas Scholarship in Tail-wagging (second row, left)
  • Doug “Stretch” Jones, Marmaduke Fellowship Award for the Extremely Tall (back row, right)
  • Shoshana McPlonk, Macarthur Park Grant for the Study of Squirrel Chasing (second column, middle-ish)
  • Bruce “Bruce” Brusky, Australia Cup for Notable Achievement in Herding (four down, two to go)
  • Mifny Gatzner, Honors in Applied Science Fiction (currently invisible)
  • Fred Garbage, Captain of Fetch Team (fourth from left of the dog next to the other dog with the pointy ears just below the dog wearing the thing next to the thing.)
No, not that one… you see the one that looks like it’s smiling? OK, so you go two to the back and then…

      And behind the photographer, the elf holding a tennis ball.

    The desire of dogs to cooperate astonishes me. I’m used to cats who have zero interest in your plans, hopes, and dreams.

    Do you have to be a Great Dane to receive the Marmaduke Fellowship Award for the Extremely Tall? That seems discriminatory…

    And with the nickname “Stretch” I thought he might be a Doxie. They’re tall…just…horizontally tall.

    My fave is the shy one peeping up between the tallest dane and her neighbor.

    A see you back there, little guy! You can’t hide from me! I *will* pet you!

    The Boston in the middle(ish) looks skeptical.

      He really does! Those squinty eyes are sizing you up!

    The boxer-y pup on the left; I think mebbe he told his people he was sonewhere else this day?

    Also, was BB Brusky’s degree granted by the U of Wollamaloo, perhaps?

      Speaking of Aussies, my husband met a new Aussie owner at the dog park the other day. Who complained that his dog ate ALL the time. When asked how much food he was giving him, he started saying, “Well, three cups for breakfast….” and every person there started nearly howling in horror! There ensued lectures on the benefits of green beans and other non-calorie fillers, not to mention less food, if he wants a dog who can still even waddle in six months!

      Yes. Bruce was also in charge of the sheep-dip.

    Anyone else read ‘da Sign’ ?


    If that doesn’t sound like a Animal House Re-Boot .. Nothing does.

      Sounds more like an art school for dogs to me.

        Bowwow House School. Way ahead of its time.

    I’m pretty sure I can see Waldo’s in the back to the left in his iconic white/red striped shirt.

    Imagine trying to take such a photo at cat obedience school. The mind boggles on several levels.

    OK everyone, this one is for the school yearbook.
    Everybody say SQUIRREL!

    • Duckie 🐥 June 1, 2017 / 5:58 pm

      And they all look in different directions.
