    Or is it Bob Zelin flying across the country to slap someone?
    Anyway, the Cow’s cornerstone top image of the orange landscape and sun has this dark speck in one of the cloud’s in the left third portion. I want to Photoshop it so badly. However, maybe it is a part of nature that has intentionally been left in the image and Photoshopping should be left for the models on the covers of magazines.
    Or, maybe it’s the Cow Dog on a flying beer run?

    You have figured it out, Chad. It is indeed Cowdog on a flying beer run to gather up the suds needed to join Bob Zelin in his flight across the country to bring slaps to good little boys and girls everywhere during these festive holiday times.

    Man, you have good eyes…

    Best regards,

    I want to have a beer with “said” dog. I love West Coast Pale Ales. I bet CowDog does too.

    I had to wait until this morning to nudge the old dog and ask him this question, Chad. (Seems he was too “suds” to understand the question when I asked him last night.)

    Yes, he does indeed like the West Coast Pale Ales but says his favorites are “the thick, dark and malty” varieties. Says Cowdog: “If you can drop a handful of kibble into the suds and they don’t fall to the bottom of the glass, you have my attention — and my canine respect.”

    Our Persian cat, Boris, says that he prefers a bold, rich Syrah, or perhaps an especially fruit-forward Mourvédre.

    They fight like cats and dogs over this stuff.

    Darn I shouldn’t have read this. Now that pixel is all I see when I look at the header!

    That’s why we put it there, David. ;o)

    But if you own the version of Photoshop that you see on TV cop shows, you can blow it up until you see that it is NOT really a pixel but is an entire world filled with merry Disney animals frolicking in the woods — but oh crap! they’ve shot Bambi’s mother again!#@!

    Even after I’ve read this, it still makes me think there’s a speck of dirt on my screen.

    I decided to go buy a higher resolution display and now it’s smaller…

    We got our Samsungs in the office today. Thanks Chad.

    I have to laugh when to this day I see the magic version of photoshop still being used on tv cop shows. Lie to Me, a decent show, does this all the time. On a recent episode they zoomed in on a glass window and saw the exact facial expression reflected from someone nearby. Amazing. And of course such zooming can only be activated by lots of furious typing, with each keystroke accompanied by a beep.
