Black Dog!

MSNBC reports on “black dog syndrome” — where black dogs are less likely to get adopted than dogs of other colors.

Way harsh. Also way true.

Unfortch, cos black dogs rule!

Benefits of a black dog:

  • Challenge for the budding photographer, and excellent subject for the line-inclined artist seeking to develop shadow and texture skills. Finding: Intellectually stimulating
  • When in the back seat of a car, all you can see are smiling teeth and the whites of his eyes. Double true if your dog has a purple tongue, like Jake. Finding: Excessively cute
  • Silver leeps. Finding: Also excessively cute
  • Has at times smelled like leather. jasmine, coffee, popcorn and Bonne Bell bubblegum lip gloss. Finding: delicious. Possibly unrelated to being black, but you never know


Draws. Sweats. Eats too much sugar-free candy.

    Brown ones have trouble sticking around, apparently.

    It may come down to Roomba vs. Border Collie shedding.
