Friday Puppy Blogging – 07 September 2018

Say hello to Bodie, a 9-week-old cockapoo. He was acquired by our friends Dave and Eileen a few days ago, and this is his official Hollywood glamor shot. If only this were the 1930s, he’d be a shoo-in to play Shirley Temple’s beloved dog, given to her as a birthday present by Daddy Warbucks.

And here he is in a full body shot, all the better for showing off his svelte figure to the guardians of the casting couch.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
