  1. Well, it’s certainly better than torturing real dogs with clothes in semi-tropical Tokyo!

  2. I found your blog via google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Please keep up the bad work. Looking forward to never having to reading more from you in the future.
