I Was Going To Post a Roundup of All the Nonsense of Trump’s First Week as President, But Then I Decided You’d Probably Like These Pet Pictures Better

First off, here’s Zeus, winking saucily. Oh, Zeus! You Lothario!

And here’s Daisy, appearing to be having a bit of an existential crisis, with luggage. She’s not really having an existential crisis, by the way. She just has Resting Existential Crisis Face.

There, I think this was a much better choice! For each of us and for the nation!

  1. Also, you have family to enjoy time with and books to write and if you tried to summarize ALL the nonsense of the Septic Sphincter’s first week, you’d be writing until midnight next Wednesday.

    This is a MUCH better use of your time.

    Not to mention less stressful to enjoy.

  2. Sorry to spoil the party, but I for one came over here today hoping you had written something trumpety…! Not that I mind cats. I have a cat. Not that I mind dogs either, for that matter, though I have never had a dog. (I did house-sit a barn in France a couple of weeks ago that including dog-, cat- and chicken-sitting among my duties.)

  3. It’s a relief, actually, as I can’t take it anymore. What a hell of a week. Soothing pet pictures, thanks! I also have to get work done and can’t spend every minute obsessing about whether my son will have healthcare next year, etc. Lots of etc. And the sun is shining in Seattle, so I think going outside and communing with nature will also be a better use of my time today.

    That picture of Zeus makes me want to pick up a cat and cuddle. I am deathly allergic to cats so that probably wouldn’t be a good idea. I’ll have to cuddle my big yellow dog instead.

  5. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    I’ve been posting funny memes and cat pictures all week. I’m over politics.

    And here I thought I’d avoided this morning’s Facebook war over the recent claim that cats were smarter than dogs. And whether “orange” has an English rhyme…

    Best of times?

    cannon bangs
    “gangs”
    wet hair, orange
    “American carnage”
    campaign’s completion
    “sad depletion”
    enemies’ bones
    “factories like tombstones”

  7. Awwww…bigly preferable to the news round up. Each day brings a new outrage. I think they’re trying to wear us out.

  8. I truly love animals and enjoy these pet pictures. But I also would have enjoyed hearing your thoughts, wit, and most especially sarcasm, regarding the Trump Era to date. But I certainly can understand not wanting to think about that.

    Love Zeus’s smile.

  9. I’m happy to see the pet pictures, but I am a little curious about your take on Week One…

    You should combine the two things, and post a picture of Donald Trump face-swapped with Daisy.

    For best results the picture should be of Daisy’s opposite end.

  11. Yeah, thank you. I don’t think I can cope with any more of the Trumpocalypse. And that is without getting into the shenanigans of the UK’s govt. antics of which I am also burnt out on for this year already.

  12. @Tara — yup. Like, maybe if they cause outrage on many fronts at once we won’t know where to take a stand? Ah well, we still outnumber them…

  13. Therapybeasts – exactly what I needed. Thank you, sir, and thank Zeus and Daisy as well. Or give ’em head-scritches or treats or whatever.

    I am sure that you will have comments aplenty on the topic of the evil cheeto at some point in the near future, and I’ll appreciate them when they appear, but for me right now, therapybeasts are a much better choice.

  14. Great pics, love the Lothario. Trumps first week was dominated by EOs, I believe that is the same thing the Rep’s. wanted to run Obama out of office for eight years ago, citing how disgraceful it was, and yet not a peep from them so far.

  15. The vibe in the Imperial Capital is distinctly frenetic this week and may well be beyond the capacity of any “therapybeast” to moderate for the foreseeable future. Serenity now, people. Serenity now . . .

  16. Canucklehead,

    I can’t disagree. It would also have been a grievous insult to Daisy. But, creatively portraying Trump’s face among the cowlicks (and other prominent features) of a dog’s butt would be kinda funny.

  17. The rhyme for “orange” is “door hinge”.

    “Our President’s visage is orange,
    And still he’s dumber than a door hinge.”

  18. I find myself in need of some quality dog time. I do believe I’ll make the trip to visit my father this weekend; as his retriever, Fred, is always enormously happy to see anyone; even me.

    Great photos, great choice!

  20. Go, Daisy. I have resting Chicken Little face myself, while my dog…words cannot even.

    I vaguely remember Eminem talking about rhyming orange. “Four inch”, I think.

  21. I always appreciate pet pictures, especially cats.

    Having said that, I also always enjoy the way you so articulately serve up rations of shit aimed at creepy old Donald Trump. Every day, I am astonished at the stuff he and his minions are trying to to us. So whenever you’re up for it, I am more than eager to read your thoughts.

    There are more kindness and in a way hope in your pets than in a way, some so-called leaders.

    Goodness and beauty during these time – maybe the hope for the better times.

    Blessings!

  23. Thank you! This was much better. I am burnt out on politics, and yet still need to be aware of what’s going on.

    I’ve just seen my incredibly low bank balance. Sigh. Hoping to make it through until the end of next month.

    So seeing Zeus and Daisy was really, really nice. I think I’ll go spoil my cats and read after supper.

  24. Good call. I think the Trump administration may be outperforming it’s stated goal of saying or doing one outrageously stupid thing each day. Wait until they settle into the job. Meanwhile, awesome pet pics. They sit so still for you.

    Why insult the dog like that ?
    And you may be overrating the orange man to assume he looks as good as the dogs butt.
    I’m thinking one of the cow droppings in the fields might be more accurate.

  26. Oh, dear Lord, yes. More cat pictures, please! Love Zeus’s winking game–he is a handsome little guy, isn’t he? Things like this make you remember that not everything is doom and gloom out in the wide world. Send a kiss to Zeus and Daisy from me!

  27. “Nonsense” like lefty protesters burning a limo that belongs to a n immigrant Muslim businessman? Or “nonsense” like people in the women’s march excluding pro-life women and attacking pro-Trump women while having a homophobe who killed a gay man speak and having a sharia-supporter with connections to the Muslim brotherhood organize their march? Yeah, that’s nonsense.
