Unofficial Neighborhood Doggie Park

Rutledge & Calhoun St., Charleston, S.C.

I just waddling back happily full from a reception at the Governor Thomas Bennett House (just one glass of wine, thank you) and snapped this picture of our neighborhood dog park.

Speaking of pets....here is a crazy story from Book of Joe:

Norwegian tries to smuggle 14 pythons

A man has been arrested in Norway trying to smuggle two dozen snakes and geckos into the country by taping them to his body.

Customs agents said the Norwegian citizen, 22, was arrested in Kristiansand after getting off a ferry from Denmark. He had 14 royal pythons and ten albino leopard geckos hidden under his clothes.

The non-venomous snakes were stowed in stockings duct-taped to the man's abdomen, and the geckos were in boxes taped to his thighs.

Yikes! You have to look at the pictures. Really.
