I am working with marvellous TAs this term (and am so grateful to be working with two whose dissertations I am also mentoring--one on the gothic and race in the early C19 Atlantic, the other on the poetics of contagion and inoculation. You will soon hear great things from both.) This, however, is my favourite TA--no contest. Here she is helping me prepare my second-year seminar. #dogsofmastodon #bordercollie

a black and white border collie lies on a bed, from which a human has clearly just risen. She is snuggling a copy of the pandemic-zombie-infrastructure-studies novel Severance, by Ling Ma (2018). Next to her is the business section from the Toronto Globe and Mail, with a lead headline about the crisis in rental housing. The border collie is not snuggling the business section.

A Tee shirt idea. Being part of the Myers-Briggs INFP ("Healer") personality type comes with a little personal baggage every now and then. Made it a while back but wasn't sure if I should put it out there, but I feel better about it now. #furryart #teeshirtart #INFP #healer #therapypets #bordercollie #anthrobordercollie #anthroanimalart

To the right stands a stern-looking anthropomorphic border collie (half-body portrait) wearing a blue set of scrubs with a red cross on the sleeve.  To the left reads a large caption:" I don't mind being a 'therapy pet' for whoever needs one." Below is a smaller caption: "But bear in mind that I have multiple patients who also need my emotional resources."
The version of the previous image that I posted to Instagram: All text has been warped far beyond legibility, and the border collie is a blurred and slightly warped silhouette with a red question mark over it. Background is a pale light green with a shadow near the bottom and a highlight near the top

I think I must be trying to make myself feel better about approaching winter. Joni loves walks on the beach in the winter and I admit that I do as well, when I can push myself to go there. She looks a bit miserable here, though, probably because it was over and we were on the way home.
Have as good a Monday as you can make it, friends.

As the summer is winding down there are still some mornings that look like this. Joni was quite young in this photograph, but the intensity never wanes.
Make it as good a day as you can!

I wanted to share something happy today and this seems to fit the bill.
All dogs are special to their owners who love them, who have seen into their hearts. So when I look at your lovely dog in a photograph I only see a small part of this special animal. It's a bit like an iceberg. So much is hidden beneath the surface.
This is my dog, Joni.When I look at her I see the heart shining through in her eyes. I see a smile.
Happy Monday all.

I did a search for "food" on my photos and this is one of the results.

I can't decide if #AI thinks my dog is food, or if it is trying to tell me this is the way my dog tells me he is starving? He's very dramatic, so I wouldn't be surprised.

Playing with AI

Taking a stroll away from work, to amuse myself, I went to ChatGPT and asked:

"write a short poem about an Abyssinian cat and his Border Collie sister"

And got:

"In a sun-dappled meadow, mid-morning's warm glow,
An Abyssinian cat, with a heart all aglow.
Silent whispers of the moonlight his secret to keep,
With emerald eyes that shimmer in the deep.

There too, dances his sister, vivacious and free,
A Border Collie as lively as a capering sea.
Beneath the sky's vast canvas, black, white, and tan,
She races the wind, as only a canine can.

Together they weave, the day's delicate song,
In a world where love, and only love, belong.
An Abyssinian cat, his Collie sister so spry,
Together they dance, under the wide-open sky."

A previously posted photo of Nick the Abyssinian cat and his Border Collie sister waiting for my presence for a snack. I thought a photo would be nice as part of this post.
