The David Bowie of Dogs

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

Outside of Ubatuba, Brazil, while birding along a rural road, our group encountered this perro, which came up to check us out. His eyes reminded me of David Bowie—the Thin White Duke.

I wonder if they are related? When was the last time Bowie toured Brazil? Hmmm...

Anyway, back on that dusty Ubatuba road, my mind began sifting through old Bowie songs, changing the lyrics...

He came on so loaded man
dog breath and snow-white tan


Pound control to Major Tom

You get the idea.

Any other Bowie fans want to chime in here with canine-infused lyrics?

How about:

If you say run, I'll run with you
If you say hide, we'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall
Into my arms
And tremble like Chet Baker

Schmoker is ALWAYS schmokin'.

I dunno what he's schmokin', but he schmokes.
