Goofy Is Not a Dog – Blog Shorts – Dog Days of Summer #9

The end is here. For ten days the restraints have been loosed, the gates opened, shock collars diabled and dogs let loose. Although i have avoided this phrase all week, I must add it now, because who knows when i will get another chance. Yes ladies and germs, Blogdramedy “Let the Dogs Out!” I should have posted this tidbit with the Odie piece because Garfield was always getting things thrown his way when he sang on the back fence.

My last expose involves Pluto and the controversy over just what exact species Goofy hails from. Poor Pluto has had a hard time dealing with this public relations nightmare.


“For the last blasted time, he is not a dog!”

“But he looks like a dog,” the reporter replied.

“That is because Mr. Walt tried to economize in the early thirties as the depression continued to worsen. Believe it or not Goofy is supposed to resemble one of you.”

“One of me?”

“You know, humans.”

“So why does he look so much like a dog?”

“Man, I have no idea. The crowd loved him as soon as his first movie played. By then it was too late.”

“Does he act like a dog?”

“Passes every tree without a thought.”

“So he uses the facilities?”

“It is what a human does.”



Other dogs from the pound.

    Pluto >> Goofy. Goofy always creeped me the #$^% out.

    The Goofy Conundrum (as I just named it) is a classic. I always wondered why some dogs talked and wore clothes and others didn’t. It’s a strange universe.

So you took time to read what I wrote and I appreciate it, but comments are even better!
