My Brown Nosed Dog

Mia in my office
This morning, just minutes after the recap on MSNBC of how late night comedy poked fun of Vice President Pence for his over-the-top praise of Trump in a cabinet meeting, Mia was making it obviously known that she was wanting to go with me to the office.

"That dog lives up to his brown nose," I was told.

"Yeah, I think I'll start calling her "Mike Pence."

"Please don't, that's humiliating.  Besides, we don't need a dog with gender issues." 


If I don't post again before Christmas, I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and that my Jewish friends had a very happy Hanukkah.  It has been a busy but productive fall and the first couple months of the new year will continue along in the same vein.  But it's all fun.  I have been reading a lot, however, but just haven't gotten around to writing reviews for a number of books (and I doubt I will write more than one or two).  


  1. Hahaha! Thanks for the smiles today. Merry Christmas to you.

  2. Hi Sage - Mia looks a delight ... and glad she's reacting and becoming a character ... please just leave her with Mia!! Have a wonderful time with family, friends and 4 legged wonders ... cheers Hilary

  3. There could be worse things to name a dog.

  4. Mia looks great.
    Wishing you a merry Christmas

    All the best Jan

  5. Yes, we don't want Mia to have gender issues. Great quip, Sage!

    Thanks for including Hanukah greetings.
    Have a blessed, warm loving Christmas.

  6. Sage, Mia's brown nose is lovely and dignified. It will also spare her from those affected by this administration's economics. Certainly they'll soon issue a bounty on darker dog noses as a cheap source of high-quality rubber. Rough days ahead for all species. I wish you all good things and happiness, Sage, in this and every season.

  7. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  8. Sage, best wishes and happy holidays to you and everyone in your family. That's a great looking dog!

  9. Merry Christmas, Sage. As much as I detest the Trump presidency, I’ve considered Mike Pence one of the bright spots. But this latest fawning, servile praise is more than I can stomach.

    But enough about politics on a day like today. Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2018 to one of my favorite blog friends.

  10. Merry Christmas Sage. BTW your dog is really smart :)

  11. Funny... Wish you and your dog as well as your family a very happy Christmas. :)
