My Inner Canine Self

What dog breed are you? I'm a Border Collie! Find out at

Though I am tempted to consider this sort of thing beneath the dignity of a blog that is at the center of trying to save Anglicanism for future generations (tongue now bursting through cheek), and at the risk of looking like I'm slumming, I offer the press-stopping headline indicated by this graphic. Honestly, I took the online test, and with My Favorite Plutotian looking over my shoulder with breathless anticipation, awaited the result.

For those of you just dropping in, I won't bore you with the details. But if you actually know me, and are familiar with my relationship with the quadrupeds that share my domestic space, you are probably, as they say in the world of text-messaging, ROTFL.

Lucy, I have two words for you: YOU'RE FIRED!

(as in literally redundant)

A Poodle? Oh My ....Maybe in my dreams! & does Secty count as a movie star.....? I do get tomatoes thrown at me occasionally!

Wow, You're a Poodle!


The Star

Intelligence, style and good looks in one able-bodied, well-manicured package? But of course! You are a Poodle, and proud of it. You scoff in the general direction of passers-by who cast admiring (or is it amused?) glances your way, knowing doggone well that if your private jet were not waiting to whisk you off for a spa weekend getaway, you would handily paddle their hindquarters in a game of Trivial Pursuit. Blindfolded. You are well-educated and enjoy the finer things in life, but are not above taking an impromptu skinny dip in an old limestone quarry. It would, however, be soooo much more convenient if said quarry came with a towel boy and swim-up cocktail service, of course.

FAMOUS POODLES: Jennifer Lopez, George Clooney, Victoria Beckham

LIKELY PROFESSIONS: Fashion Designer, Movie Star, Chef

Dan, that was a fun break. It seems I'm a Lab. Of course, it's very funny in some ways, but if I had a lot of land with a pond or a lake, I wouldn't hesitate to bring one into my life. In fact, it might be the second order of business after unpacking to go find the right one. Alas, condo living isn't right for those big sporting breeds I love.

Mark Harris said... turns out I am a border collie as well. Different runs, however.

I knew there was a deep affinity between us.

...and I absolutely love the famous company you keep! Martha is almost better than the border collie thing. I wish I could have been there to watch dragonbug's reaction; it had to be priceless.

I have my suspicions, though, about the whole test itself. I was labeled "Jack Russell Terrier - The Artist" complete with "amazing athletic abilities".

Well, unklephil - if it makes you feel in good company, it's odd to be a Lab when you don't like to swim. You'll find me walking the beach, or floating on an inflatable in the pool...not swimming laps. I'm pleased to say I also do not like bird-hunting; a good thing, the pigeons can be pretty annoying around here.

I can't wait to hear what Lucy has to say about this. :)

Oh (*wipes tears from eyes*), ROTFLOL indeed -- how cosmically ironic!

Fr. C, this does explain a few things! Just don't expect that having your inner border collie outed by an online quiz is going to make it any easier to control (herd?) this damselfly...
