Bo, the Famous Retriever.

It's a book I learned about while reviewing the Althouse Amazon Associates Reports from yesterday.  Someone purchased it through the Althouse portal and, at no additional cost to the purchaser, it retrieved $0.52 to the Althouse blog.

Wow, cool, thanks!  52 cents here, 52 cents there... pretty soon we're talking about real money!

No really, thanks everyone for using the portal for any of your Amazon shopping. We notice.

may I ask precisely how much information Amazon gives you? For instance do you know where the books have been shipped to?

Baron Zemo said...

Didn't he play for the California Angels in the 1960's and was a famous pussy hound?

Meade said...

Sure, Big M. No, Amazon doesn't tell us where items are shipped to. Item name, price, number ordered, earnings fees. That's about it. No personal information.

Meade said...

Different hound, BZ. You're thinking of Bo Belinsky. He was an Angel but also a bit of a devil.

Meade said...

Bo, the famous retriever is a black labrador retriever. Like Zeus, he's an angel in every way.

Blogging for fun and profit.

How much would you make if I purchased a trillion dollar coin through your amazon portal?

"Bo, the famous retriever is a black labrador retriever."

As IF I would ever judge a retriever by the color of his coat.

Black, yellow, chocolate, golden?

Perhaps we need a Martin "Meade" Luther King of the dog world to remind us about what really matters.

Meade said...

That might bump us up to the platinum level (8.5%), Quayle. But you should do it so we can find out for sure.

And thanks. In advance.

Meade said...

Well, Penny -- black, yellow, chocolate. I think that's it. Lab colors are never "golden". That's for Golden Retrievers. They're a different race. I mean, breed.

Big Mike said...

There are yellow Labs as well as black Labs. Stay away from yellow Labs! Go read what John Grogan had to say about it in Marley and Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog. (Use the Althouse portal. And buy the DVD while you're at it.)

(Doin' my best for you, Meade.)

Meade has gone from lawnboy to huckster/shill. Is that a move up??

ndspinelli said...

Baron, Yes and Bo Belinsky mounted Mamie Van Doren..doggie style.

I didn't realize you are blogging now!
