Movie Review, Strange Dog

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Wait a minute! This is the wrong Jabberwocky! Although the movie does start with these exact words, the movie is not about mimsy borogoves.

It is the reign of King Bruno The Questionable, and some kind of horrible monster is roaming about. Dennis the Cooper's Apprentice is in love with the "lovely" (and very overweight) Griselda - the daughter of a fish monger.

Anyhow Dennis gets kicked out of the barrel making business because his father is not happy with the fact Dennis is not a craftsman. He wants to make barrels that last only a few days, not a lifetime and take inventory all the time. So Dennis has to go off to the big city to try to make it.

Jabberwocky is a silly movie. Word on the street is that this is the movie Terry Gilliam had in mind when Monty Python made "The Quest For The Holy Grail". So after the comedy powerhouse that was Python broke up, Gilliam made Jabberwocky. So if you like silly, you will love Jabberwocky. But you have to really like silly. It helps to have a beer or two. The jokes in the movie are not always right on the surface. Terry Gilliam is a friggin genius.

In other news, it seems that a mystery dog has decided to hang out here.

This is Dumb Shit the dog. He is large and dumb. The dog seems friendly enough, but he is stupid - even by dog standards. The dog lacks even the most basic of training. Dumb Shit will jump up on you, does not know how to walk on a leash, and so on. Dumb Shit has no ID tag, so who knows where he came from. Dumb Shit is not hungry, at least not for dog food. So if he was dumped he was dumped recently. I had him tied to the tree in the front yard this afternoon - thinking someone might come by and take him. But of course, this did not happen. So he is still in the front yard. He will run in the house like he owns the place, which causes cats to scatter and hide for hours. I tried putting Dumb Shit in the backyard for the night, but he scratches at the door. So he has to hang in the front yard.

He does not seem to be in a hurry to wonder off. Maybe he will wonder off overnight - but somehow I doubt it. He seems to be fearful of feet, and will cow down if if you raise your hand abruptly like you are going to pimp slap him - so he has probably been abused.

People get puppies that are going to be large dogs, then refuse to train them - thinking that the stupid animal will just train itself. Well this does not happen. So they end up with a large dumb dog with no manners, and then they let it loose.

Anyway, maybe the beast will find some other place to hang out. I just got rid of a shit producing machine and have just gotten used to a land mine free yard.

One of my pet peeves is people who get pets and then won't take even half assed care of them and dump them when they get to be a problem. Most major cities have no-kill shelters who can help, which is where a decent person who didn't know what they were getting into would take the unwanted pet.
Sorry you ended up with a shit producing machine wandering into your yard. This was one place where I got lucky. The dumped animal that found me was a cute little neurotic calico cat. Perfect for a not particularly cute and generally bad-tempered old bat that has a soft spot for animals.

most major cities are controlled by packs of stray dogs.

moving on

awwwwwww lazy! be nice, take him in. He's lonely..he loves yu! he can be taught very easily to walk on a lease, in about 5 minutes. You can hire a neighbor kid to pick up the poop.

are those Danner boots you have on?

The Lazy,

Saur has lots of animals she probably would take him. Dogs that have been stray are difficult. Probably should just call the Humane Society. If he takes a chunk out of the neighbors they might blame you.

CM - two thirds of my cats were strays. Gigi the calico cat arrived as a sickly scrawny kitten, not too far from death. And wild. I did not want her to get the other cats sick so she had to live in a crate in the back yard. I would go out several times a day to care for her and see if she was still alive. After a few days she went to the vet to get medicine. Next cat to the house was Sake. Sake was adopted from a box of kittens in front of a supermarket. She was born onto a house cat, and was healthy and stuff. Fred was next. He came from the same supermarket as Sake, only not from a box. From the parking lot. He was all greasy and oily due to using cars to get out of the rain. Cleo is the newest cat. I found her while looking for Cornelius who got lost.

Ba Doozie - Dumb Shit the mystery dog dog went away. Those shoes are cheap boot looking shoes I got at DSW for $35.

Caiman - The dog was not car trained. Tampa is a long way to drive with a stupid animal slobbering on you and everything else in the car.
