I got Dingo in 1994 from the local pound. When I saw her, I reached into her cage and she immediately darted under the stainless steel table. Her little head peeked out and she growled like the biggest five pound puppy ever. I grabbed her by the back of the next and decided that she was the puppy for me. Fourteen years later, I can say she has been a wonder dog. My shadow. When I’d throw a Frisbee and Aussie (The Australian Shepard pictured below who died about a year ago) would run, jump and catch it, Dingo stayed by my side. “You’re crazy if you think I’m running after that thing,” I sure she thought. Dingo was the smart one. She knew she’d still get a treat even if she didn’t run after a ball or a disc. She figured out that if my arm hung over the side of the bed or chair that rubbing against it would get me to pet her. And there is a lot more. Over the past year, she's been living with my parents because I thought I'd be traveling right now. I took her to the Vet. today for the last time. She will be missed. A lot.
Meat and Aussie.

I say there should be a multi-country boycott on the Beijing Olympics and the US should lead and just maybe, the rest of the world would realize that we all aren't a bunch of morons like our current leader. It's time to step up, US government officals, and show the world that we aren't as bad as they think we are.
The latest news:
A video from AlJazeera
DHARAMSHALA, India (AFP) — The Dalai Lama vowed Tuesday he would resign as leader of Tibet's exiles if violence back home worsened, just hours before his aides said 19 people were killed in new demonstrations.
The Buddhist leader, speaking in the Indian city where his exiled government is based, insisted he was opposed to the violence that erupted in Tibet last week, which saw Chinese shops and banks torched and smashed.

The calm before the storm.
It's not a party without porta-johns.
It's not a party without people and line went on and on.
And they came.
The boys from Green Shack killing it.
My nephew, Travis, making the family proud.
Labeling Deloris also kills.
Sai getting his pre-game strut on and Dan on his iphone, as always.
Sai (left), Dan (middle), Me. Waiting.
The wait's over.
Sai's wondering if this crowd makes his ass look big.
When on stage, the more the merrier.
It was a good day.
Thank you and good night.

Article from Thaindian News
Dharmasala, March 10 (IANS) Over 100 Tibetan refugees, including Buddhist monks and activists, began a march from here to Tibet Monday, the 49th anniversary of Tibet’s uprising against the Chinese rule of the peninsular region. The marchers, who are protesting Chinese rule in Tibet, included representatives of five Tibetan NGOs based in India and about 70 monks, attired in their traditional robes.
As the protestors set off, thousands of Tibetan refugees gathered in this hill town in Himachal Pradesh to see them off. Sergia Delia, a member of the Italian Parliament, flagged off the protest march.
The marchers are likely to reach Delhi in the next 20-25 days, said a spokesman of one of the participating NGOs.
“The marchers could then take any route across the 4,000-km-long Indo-Tibet border to enter Tibet,” the spokesman said.
India is home to some 100,000 Tibetans, many of whom fled their homeland along with their spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in 1959 after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule. The Dalai Lama, head of six million Tibetans, has a government-in-exile based in Dharamsala.
