Basically, for everyone who complains I give too much blog love to the cats and not enough to the dog.
I don’t think I knew you had a dog o.o
On the other hand, I doubt Kodi knows that they’re cats. Three strange puppies, but cats?
Unless you intend to strap some form of breakfast meat onto this radically under-represented pet, you are best just to leave him out of the blog altogether.
Kodi looks hungry. (looking for exits) For Kendall-burger. (eyeing door) Are you sure you fed Kodi today? (tiptoeing to the door) No, look over there, Kodi–bacon! (running away)
What kind of dog is that? He looks like he is part bear. And those eyes…I will see them in my sleep.
She is an Akita.
Another book deadline, eh?
I know that look.
“Please, please. Where is my play toy? It was just here…sometime.”
“Don’t go through that doggie door. The killer has a knife.”
That’s the stuff. Beautiful shot; nice effect.
Steve @8: Closer to “There’s a killer at the door? Ooh, I’m gettin’ me some larynx. You want a piece?”
Give that dog a snausage.
What’s her name?
Kodi stands much taller and prouder than Bondi, ankle-warmer of the revolution.
I wasn’t *complaining*, I was *sighing with gentle sadness*. It’s very different.
Heh! I has looking at Jeff Hentosz when I used the word “complain,” Mris.
Wait. You have a dog? Heh.
Huh. Just heard a big thing on “Fresh Air” (or was it Diane Riehm, sigh) about Akitas. Bred for centuries to kill bears in Japan.
Damn good thing you shaved that beard off, Scalzi!
O Pandering Scalzi, why do you waste valuable photographic space by showing Anteater-Thing Kodi? She is Our Most Perfect Lady’s Least Valuable Servant (well, one notch above you, actually).
The so-called Anteater-Thing Appreciation Society has one or two lunatic members, nothing to fear – unlike the mighty and overwhelming wrath of The Official Ghlaghghee Fan Club. So stay strong and resolute; go forth, and bring back a picture of the Beauteous Ghlaghghee, and we might forgive you.
The Official Ghlaghghee Fan Club
What a gorgeous dog!
You need cats in the country for small pests. You need dogs in the country for larger (two-legged) pests. It’s nice to see you have an appropriate dog for the larger pests. Our neighbors had an Akita. She was always alert and aware of everything. Sweet *and* protective of her family.
Looks crazy. In a good way.
Hey, you have a dog? I want to talk about dogs. Quickly, while the cat’s not looking.
Wait.. does Kodi really have red eyes or is that a Photoshop artifact?
I don’t remember other pictures of her looking so… demonic.
I must inform you *THAT* is not a dog. It is a demon from the underworld. Can you not tell be the piercing red eyes?
My guess is that Kodi is probably not normally demonic – it’s probably pent up jealousy of the cat deities in the household.

Just for the “Hero of the Revolution Effect”
How proud she looks, guarding the Scalzi household from the machinations of all evil, internal (lookin’ at you, Ghlaghghee!) and external.
A fabulous dog, a fabulous effect, and much appreciated.

You have a blog? Wow.
Crap. If I’d known yesterday was “Address Jeff Hentosz’s Complaints Day” I would have also pointed out how seldom you encourage people to send me money. Next year!
How did you get that spiffy artistic effect? I can make source code do wonders, but when it comes to photoshop my skills are amazingly weak.
That’s just the “Poster Edges” filter on Photoshop.
