You may also remember him as Tucker McElroy from “The Blues Brothers.”

Two in one day,


died on June 8th of lung cancer at the age of 68.

I can’t believe I missed this one.

And to think, she never got to meet him.

Totally bummed,


…but it’s fucking awesome.

We’re on a mission from God,


…regularly. Every once in awhile, a fellow dog owner strikes up a conversation with me about Fabulous. It almost always begins the same exact way.

Stranger: What’s her name?

Me: Mr. Fabulous.

Stranger: It’s a boy?

Me: Nope. She’s a girl named Mr. Fabulous.

Stranger: What’d you do that for?

Me: I had the name before I had the dog; it’s a nod to “The Blues Brothers.” I said if I ever got a dog that I was going to name it Mr. Fabulous. When I ended up getting a girl, I figured it didn’t really matter what her name was, so I kept it.

Stranger: Oh.

Nine times out of ten, the conversation usually stops here. This morning, however, a woman and her male mutt Tucker approached us, and instead of ending the conversation there she added this little jab.

Woman: Oh, Mr. Fabulous… you’re so gay.

I probably would have let it go, but when I turned my head towards her I noticed that Tucker was busy humping another male dog from behind. The words were out of my mouth before I even realized it.

Me: Yeah, lady… my dog’s gay.

She puffed up and yelled at Tucker; I smiled, put Fabulous’ leash on, and left.



dead at 73.

You saw one of my skulls, didn’t you?



Old Poop!
