Thursdog: Dancing bichon frises, water hoses, and dog research October 9, 2014

At NonProphet Status, we love dogs. We love dogs a lot. We love their faces and their fur and the way their stupid little noses sniff and bury into everything. They’re like cats, but with personality and for people who can handle responsibilities.

Big dogs, little dogs, short hair, long hair. It really doesn’t matter. We’re just really into dogs, and have accordingly assembled a list of dog-related links. Send your dog-related links to @npsblog

So he’s just published a book meant to introduce the idea of Godlessness …to kids. Bob speaks to Weingarten about his new children’s book “Me and Dog.”
