Meet Elvis. He’s the German Shepherd peering through our fence and pondering what to make of Hilbert. It turns out that Elvis and his owner walk by our house daily, and when Hilbert is around they try to make friends. The remarkable thing, as you can see, is that apparently it’s working.

As for Elvis, his owner says he’s a huge coward, so I imagine Hilbert can sense that he’s in no danger. My sister-in-law is visiting today with her (very old and sedentary) dog, so we’ll see what Hilbert makes of that.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
