Hello, friends! What did you do this week? I spent a few days by a lake, swimming and detoxing from Twitter and swatting mosquitoes, and oh boy did it help me feel better about the world, and my place in it. Need a bit of that peace for yourself? Here, have a dog in a kayak!

AS ALWAYS, THAT WAS A REAL QUESTION
I’d like to remind you I said bravo to all the brazen bra comments. I feel slighted for not getting a nod with the bravissimo award. :+p
YOU’RE RIGHT AL I MISSED IT I’M SORRY ILUUUU
AL I FIXED IT <3
OMG thank you, but I was half kidding. Why I love this site soo much!
I look forward to the column every damn week! It brings me so much joy to read this during lunch every Friday (or read it before eating lunch, even though my stomach is growling, depending on what kind of Friday I’m having).
And today I get to add to my small but growing collection of screen shots of my comment awards (that’s not weird is it?).
Thank you QG! And congratulations Laura. I knew you’d written a winning comment as soon as I read it.
<3 <3 <3
❤️ ? ?
I look forward to it every week too
congrats to YOU, co-commenter!!!
Oh gawd I was on vacation too ! So glad to be back in time for the Comment Awards. It’s also my favourite part of the week.
Cheers to all, and thanks QG for pulling it all together so brilliantly.
MORE CYRUS PLEASE!
omg another comment award?! i am truly and deeply honoured <3 also i feel the need to say how much i loved the bra pun comment thread because every time i thought it was finished, i scrolled down to find MORE AMAZING BRA PUNS
We padded them out. It was a bit of a squeeze, but we managed to fill them in in time for the comment awards, just under the wire.
There was indeed quite a long string of them – it was the Bra-puns-el of comment threads
It was brazen (HAVE WE DONE THAT ONE YET? PROBABLY)
OF COURSE WE HAVE it was Kristana, she’s perfect
I’ll always push-up to the top of a pun thread.
Yes…but it’s full-filling to double up.
omg y’all are making my day with these replies
I’ve been trying to squeeze in a comment about Full 18-Hour Pun Support, but y’all went the distance for wayyy more than 18 hours. Jane Russell would be proud !
I would like to request more Cyrus. This website is cat heavy and needs to increase the dog content.
Team Paw Patrol forever!
I would like to second this motion!
P.S.:A Facebook friend of mine shared a literal picture of “puppies looking for a home” yesterday. And they were Pyrenean Shepherd dogs, and by that I mean Pyrenean Shepherd dog puppies(!) of course and pretty close to where I live and it was a struggle and not ok to post.
I almost adopted a litter of Shepherd dogs yesterday is what I’m trying to say.
Why must you deny yourself??
We went to a shelter Thursday to donate some of Tyloup’s things and we visited the doggies. There was a shepherd mutt who was adorable and cuddly and playful. Clearly a very good girl. And she’d been at the shelter for nearly 5 years. ?? her owners have her up because she “had too much energy”. ? I can’t understand how she hasn’t found a forever home. I can’t have a new dog right now because I will be moving across the ocean in the coming 2 years, but how had no one snatched her up in 5 years?
Go adopt them! Life is too short
You guys are the best!
But I’m a single doctor who lives in the middle of the city! I really must not have a dog! (It’s still my biggest wish, though.)
I checked out of Grey’s Anstomy somewhere around season 5. Did anyone there ever manage to have a pet? Tipps?
P.S.: So you can understand my genuine conflict:
P.P.S.: I was drunk and had just gotten home from a club when I posted this last night. I’m afraid me posting drunkenly about my conflict of not being able to own a puppy says more about me than I’d ever admit willingly in real life.
There’s a poem in Dog Songs where Mary Oliver talks about how it was in her teaching contract that she could bring her dogs to work.
I’m not saying you should change careers, but I am saying maybe you can find a roommate who has a dog?
