Radley Balko has long posted pictures of his dogs on Sunday evenings, but lately he’s opened it up to readers to send in pictures of their dogs. And this week’s picture has dogs playing poker. But the dog owner wants to make a couple of things very clear:
No animals were harmed during the making of this picture.
No poker was played on-line, so please have the authorities hold off on any raids.
I used to have a dog who played poker, but he consistently overplayed middle pair and couldn’t lay down a hand even when he should have known he was beaten. Plus he always slowrolled his opponents, though I think that had more to do with lacking an opposable thumb.
