I was expecting, oh, I don't know, a site about walking dogs, maybe sharing the best places for doggie walks, a social media play kinda thing. But that's not what DogWalkBlog.com serves up. Instead, it's "political and social commentary through the eyes of three smart dogs." Gotta get a gimmick, right? But the blog posts (authored by one Rufus Dogg, made famous I guess on their custom sticker) really are thoughtful commentary. As the author points out, there's really no reason for a dog to lie.
Is Rufus a real dog?
Yes, Rufus is very real. He was born in June 2000 and “rescued” from Jack’s in Trotwood by a very caring family who lives in Englewood, Ohio. There, he has flourished in the lap of near luxury, enjoying a MINIMUM of three walks a day, chasing rabbits, squirrels and playing with a squeaky toy.
Does Rufus really write this blog?
Well… not really,. He is, after all a dog and he has no thumbs. So, typing is very difficult. But, he is the alter-ego of his owner from time to time. At other times, he is a reflection of the world around him.
Dammit, why did I have to read the "About Rufus" page? I was loving the image of a dog nosing a MacBook, typing out blog posts one letter at a time.
