Truer words have never been spoken

Guys, I’d like to be serious for a moment.

You know, good buddies hanging out and eating hot dogs together is a fucking wonderful thing. I hope as you guys drive home tonight you take a moment to thank the good lord for good buddies who like eating hot dogs with their hot dog eating faces. I’m serious. There’s a lot of people in the world who would love to eat hot dogs with good buddies. But they don’t have good buddies. And they don’t have hot dogs. Or maybe they do have good buddies, but those buddies don’t like hot dogs. In fact, maybe they think hot dogs are what douche bags eat. Well, I feel sorry for those people. I feel sorry for them and their stupid asshole lives.

-Brock Davis,

The best of both worlds




Some great Dome Dogs + good buddies + a fine game.

a box full of buddies


This weekend is looking to be a big buddy weekend.
box full of buddies.
look out here comes one more. eeeeeee!!

A trip to the mall



Went to the Ridgedale Mall over the weekend and had this buttery dog at Annie's Pretzels. Not too bad for a mall snack. I would suggest some mustard and of course a buddy.

Tripping Buddies



hallucinogens+dune buggy+trampoline+buddies=best time ever

Not a Buddy Movie. It's a Buddy Song.



Just a couple of buddies singing about the same girl that crossed 'em. Buddies stick together through thick and thin.

Well done Buddy.



Sometimes a buddy needs a pat on the head from another buddy, for a job well done. Way to go buddy, you did it! You're no Fuddy Duddy buddy!

Late Night Hat Trick



Drunk dogs are the best. Just use whatever you have in the fridge (although in retrospect I might have passed on the globs of mayonnaise) and cuddle up with them like you would have with the woman from the bar who wouldn't go home with you.

Vacation Doug. What a Buddy!



This is what happens when a good buddy's wifey and brood leave for an extended trip. Vacation Doug had the time of his life without going anywhere. And now he's gone. We will miss thee.

Soon-To-Be Buddies Again Buddies



When the bond between buddies goes slack, it might just take some horsing around to get things back to where they used to be.

A pack of franks and a big bag of Frito Lays

Saturday Night Buddy BBQ



Nothing like some dogs getting together for some good times in North Minneapolis. Nathan's Beef Franks were on the menu and did not disappoint. It was an evening filled with beers, laughs, and a heated argument about how many pine trees Casey's mom has on her property.



In a defiant act of rogue hot dog creationism, we have buddy Clint with an all beef frank topped with relish, sriracha, and a nifty little slice of sweet potato.



Later on that night we ran into these major dudes in front of a bar that calls itself a "station" that is on 22nd Avenue. Buddy Casey Brewer wasted no time in making sure we would be able to remember them forever. After a little convincing, they agreed to pose for the photo of the century. Thank you Tom Petty and his little buddy. You mean more to us than you will ever know.

all i've got's this sunny afternoon



My friend Julie sent me this photo of her cat buddies and included the following caption:

"Davis, left, Olive, right, enjoy afternoon delight before the humans ruin it."

I could go for a cat nap right now.

A Dog Day Afternoon




This weekend my buddy Jake and I ventured into St. Paul to visit the much talked about Gopher Bar. This place has one food option and that is their legendary coney dog.



We each had two with extra cheese and we both could have eaten one possibly two more. These were some of the best dogs this dog has ever had. The buns were toasted just right and the amount of sauce was perfect. Highly recommended.

German Two'fer




Two dogs in one bun. That's how they do it at the German Hot Dog Co. in the skyway level of the TCF building in downtown Minneapolis. I didn't believe the man behind the counter until he pointed to a large picture of the subject in question on the wall. "See. Two dogs. One bun." he said. I looked up at the picture and I'll be goddamned if there wasn't two german style dogs nestled tightly in the bosom of that German potato bun--right there in front of me. So I ordered one. But got two! The only available toppings are onions, brown mustard, sauerkraut and parsley. Fine by me. Like most German engineered products, they were well built if not a little expensive. This was an extra special dog hunt because bearded buddy Gabe Gathman was right there with me, every step of the way.

Bosom Buddies



Time Out: Sensitive Buddies


Today a buddy brought to my attention that sometimes buddies need to be sensitive, and help a buddy. Talking and sharing together thats what buddies do.

A dog from a buddy...to you.



Good buddy Wes snapped this dog at Franks a Million yesterday.

old drinking buddies



Think hanging with buddies is a young man's game? Think again.

Google Search Buddies



Wow, I just searched "buddies" and I found these buddies!

Buddy Weekend


Oh yeah, buddy weekend, buddies doing what they do best, being buddies.

Double Dog Dare


Here we have 2 Chicago dogs from The Bulldog. I took the Double Dog Dare with fries. I won. Except it would've been better with a buddy.

Oh, how fun.



Other than eating them, what kind of fun can you have with a Fun Dog? I'll have to report back on that. I have some ideas.

Ozzy Buddies



I snapped this photo of buddy Casey Brewer and buddy Ultimate Metal Dude at the Ozzy Osbourne Halloween concert. On first sniff he smelled of crystal meth and body odor. But underneath that was the unmistakable scent of good times. Unfortunately, he was in and out of our lives faster than you can say speedball. Ultimate Metal Dude, we hardly knew ye.

Quick and easy cheesy dogs.






I've been making these since I learned how to cuss. Place cheese in bun (I use the cheapest singles I can find), place dog in bun over cheese, wrap in paper towels (not sure if this does anything but I do it anyway), microwave for one minute, dress up with whatever you desire and eat them in less time than it takes to skin a cat.

Foreign Buddies



I don't know what these guys are up to, but it looks like the most fun ever.

Thanks a million, Franks a Million!



A couple of Chicago dogs from Minneapolis skyway joint Franks a Million. Although I didn't enjoy these with a buddy they were some satisfying dogs nonetheless. Tip: while I like all the fixin's just as much as the next buddy, I also like a dog that is manageable and can be handled and consumed entirely without the aid of a utensil such as a fork. If you share that philosophy, I suggest you ask them to go light on the fixin's.

Hometown Hero


ahhh the Dome Dog, one of my favorite dogs in Minneapolis.

Sometimes...


A buddy needs a buddy, to be a buddy, a helping hand.

Thrashin' Buddies



Skateboarding's had some dark days--marked by blinding neon space fabrics, ironically--but it's always had good buddies with their arms around each other after laying down some primo slides.

Milwaukee Wiener House No. 1. Sioux City, Iowa, USA.



A picture of some tasty looking dogs provided by my good buddy, Joe. Thanks, Joe!

Easter Buddies

Downtwown MPLS's Walkin' Dog Ball Park Dogs with chili sauce, mustard, and onions.
