I love Friday afternoons, the World Wide Web and Naked Rugby Players

It started out innocently enough. On this morning’s dog walk, I was telling my friend Leslie that Tucker, one of her golden retrievers, has a tennis player’s body because he’s sleek, trim and very fast. We decided that Wrigley definitely has the body (and maybe the mentality) of a rugby player. He’s rugged, strong and very handsome in a robust sort of way.

So, I began to write a blog post about how dogs’ bodies resemble different sports player’s bodies. I wanted to attach a picture of a handsome rugby player to help me define Wrigley’s look, so I head to the World Wide Web and search for my perfect example. Well, it must be my lucky day, because I scroll down and decide to click on an article from the New York Daily News and low and behold, I have 5 delicious pictures of the All Blacks Rugby team, naked on a beach somewhere in New Zealand on my computer screen!
See for yourself.

As I click on each picture repeatedly, I cannot help but think of how Wrigley and Tucker mess around and “rough and tumble” with each other just like these teammates are doing.

I finish my blog post, turn off the computer and give Wrigley a new dog bone. I cannot take the smile off my face. The World Wide Web has served me well. It’s the perfect way to end my Friday afternoon.

My Dalmatian does not have a sleek body! He's a chunky boy, but he'll be nine on Sunday, and I treasure every year I've had with him. My nest really will be empty when he's gone!
