The also rans II: Puppy Mills

Don't worry folks I have no intention of buying a dog from a pet shop.
(Of course I had no intention when I bought Nunu either.)

But, truth be told I wasn't really at risk of buying these other dogs when I saw them.
For one thing I have a dog. I don't need another.

Also these dogs were boys.
And I can't scratch a boy dog's belly.

Because of the "lipstick."

You could breed an army of tiny dogs!

Hannah Hosh said...

Hahahahaha! The exact reason we've only ever had girl dogs.

sigrid said...

Don't get a dog from a puppy mill thats horrible.

adopt a dog from my mom at www.delawarevalleybichonrescue.org

they don't all get lipstick.

plus my boyfriend looks like you people always call him hurley. AND you are in my top five stars i would be stranded on a desert island with on Facebook

AtomBlonde said...

That's comedy gold, right there.

Rodrigo said...

Duude, cracked a laugh here, 4:42AM. Hey Jorge, hugs from Brazil :D

Clare said...

Or as I call it..... the pink crayon. Rescue dogs are the best!

Avinash said...

Son of a bitch...

Casey S. Pitman said...

That is precisely the reason all three of my dogs are girls!

Casey S. Pitman said...

And all three of my dogs are rescue dogs too, and two of them are just random mixed up mutts. They make the best dogs.

Charmaine said...

I literally laughed out loud. Thanks!

Hey! You did read our comments!
I did wish you'd include more pics of Nunu...
Lipstick, that is wack!
It would be nice fro Nunu to have a little MACHO MAN in the house, so they could give you some Nunu babies!
Imagine a house full of Nunus!
How cute!

Kashmir said...

Both of my boys are rescue dogs. In fact, all of my dogs save one were rescues.

'Lipstick' is an issue with only one of them. This mental picture is the main reason I just can't use the stuff and never wear lipstick.

Deborah Godin said...

Snork!! Best description of "the reason" I ever heard!

Stimey said...

And that is EXACTLY why all of my pets are girls. Thank you.

yellowdoggranny said...

oh my..thought me and my kids were the only ones that refered to 'dog peni' as lipsticks...hmm, your not one of my kids are you?

Raymi Lauren said...

nice one hahaha.

Doug and Amanda said...

Our dog's lipstick doesn't ever come out. I think he was neutered too early.

Art.Is.Toxic said...

red rocket! ew...

MFonvielle said...

Haha, lipstick. That's gold. Gold. I'm gonna call it that from now on :P Thank you for making my day

Tee said...

OMGosh Hilarious. Mwahahah!

Sarah - Kala said...

Could not agree more about the belly petting thing . . . t'is the main reason we got a girl Yorkie. :) You always make me smile!

Capcom said...

You sure do have a way with words, Jorge! You create hilarious images in our minds that will remain forever. You really should write a book one day.

I have two male rescue dogs, and once they've been neutered for a while, the "lipstick" is rarely seen. And never when I'm scratching their bellies!

Thanks for responding to our concerns. You rock.

Aloha Jon said...

wow jorge. looks like there is a lot of anti puppy mill wackos on here.

ReNaTo UêGa said...

I took a while to understand what "lipstick" means, now think I know what it is. Hahahaha!
So hilarious!
Hugs Jorgeman!!!

Unknown said...

Jorge, you're an awesome human. You could have been offended, gotten defensive, or ignored all the puppy mill comments. Instead you acknowledged the concerns, moved on, and were even funny without mocking anyone. I love your blog not only because it is interesting, but also because your sweet (and creative, and funny, and thoughtful...)personality shines through in every post. The world needs more people like you. Thanks.

James Hernandez said...


As Ned Flanders might say "Indeedly doodley!"

Molly said...

lipstick, I love it! my kids call it "the pink"...but I think it's gonna be lipstick for now on! Too funny.

I have a random request...my husband got in a car accident last saturday. We are both HUGE fans...if it's not too much trouble, would you leave him a comment on our family blog? If you're too busy, that's cool.

Heather (a.k.a. Bella) said...

LMAO! We've always called it "the lipstick." When I was a kid, I'd ne like, "Maaaa! The dog's lipstick is out!"

Moeyness said...

You always always need another dog. My dog has a dog who also has a dog who then has a cat and the cats just have each other. It's a vicious cycle!

blop said...

New poster..

Anyways, I'll be waiting for you to write "Jorge's Guide To the Galaxy". You've got some great comedic writing in you! :P

Love your blog!

Chenoa Photography said...

Such a cute puppy!!! I really don't like pet stores myself and I always want to rescue all of them and take them home. I can't at all so I avoid them as much as possible but I do like to look and hope that one doesn't see me and think that I'm the human that will take them home and take care of them. But really she is adorable and looking forward to seeing more pics in the future!! Side note...Is there any filming ever on Maui?? I am hoping that me and my family will be making it out this next May. I love Oahu dearly but I have never been on the smaller islands. I have been on the Big Island once but that is the extent. Hope all is well and I am a huge Lost fan as is my mom. Nothing interrupts our Lost time...lol.

Julie said...

My friend calls those the "Red Hots"

Lynn Faruque said...

Ok, so Scout has a lipstick.

He's still my baby, been my companion through lots of thick and thin.

However, lipstick would be appropriate cause it's not much bigger.

Maybe that's why his bark is so big~~~compensating!! lol

And ditto to Shannon.

Sarah said...

haha! lots of good reasons :D

Sue Wacvet said...

I feel the same way about the "lipstick"!! I love kissing Rosie's belly (my dog, not the comic.)

Tales of Whimsy said...

That's what my husband calls it too. But for some reason we have two boy dogs.

ValMo said...

Hehe...the lipstick.

Pound puppies are the way to go.

Danna said...

LOL, "Lipstick" HA!

Serguma said...

lipstick? I can imagine what it's about... That's why I prefer being a female, everything is "hiden" everytime...

Carrera said...

Lipstick is bad... lip gloss is worse! LOL

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed

Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to

produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's

imagery. Prior to the ed hardy

line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch

Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed

, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to

skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy

time to take on a partner that could help me manage

the demand and opportunities for the ed

T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand

management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed

Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed

Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand

alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder,

there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his
