Good Dog! Ugly Dog!

Today’s San Francisco Chronicle features a story that should brighten the day of anybody who has to look across a conference table at something they’d rather not on a regular basis. It’s a contest that was held in Petaluma, California, to determine the ugliest dog in the world.

Consensus seems to have been reached that a long tongue hanging out of one’s mouth is a determining factor in the race for the crown. Click on the link to see the winner, whose pink appendage is just about as long as his entire head.

The picture reminds me that I owe a phone call to my friend John, who runs Human Resources at a major corporation downtown. I haven’t seen him that way since we both did Houston a couple of years ago. I miss you, John!
