The White Menace

Well, Scout seems to have fully recovered from the visit of Harry, whom we now call The White Menace. At first she refused to play with any toy The White Menace had contaminated, but now she's back to her old self. Ironically, one of her stuffed toys looks just like Harry (we call it the Harry dog, as in "Get the Harry dog! Get it!"). The Harry dog was a gift from my in-laws, and one that The White Menace liked playing with when he was here. I'm not sure what that means but I bet Freud could run with that.

While we were in Times Square we saw the cutest billboard in the universe. Naturally it featured a beagle. We have a picture of it, which is in the process of being scanned (along with the rest of our trip photos). But anyway, you too can witness the cuteness by visiting The Dog Club website. Apparently this is advertising a set of products from Japan (beagles are very popular in Japan). But you've gotta see the dog pictures.

Amusingly enough, this is brought to the U.S. by 4Kids Entertainment, the same group responsible for deluging us in Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh.

Naturally since it is a Japanese site, I'll have to say "saito wa kawaii desu ne!" :)

Hmmm... there is no "The Cat Club." Oh well.

Actually, there *is* a cat version; my sister bought the calendar when we were in Vancouver. It may be a rip-off version, but it's done well enough so that it looks exactly like the dog version.

Of course, there's always the possibility that it's authentic but just not available in the U.S.

Obviously there isn't a Cat Club because there's *no way* that a cat could be as cute as *this*:

Well, I didn't look too hard for a The Cat Club, only checking to see if www.thecat-club.com was a legitimate URL. It wasn't.
