Beware of dogs!

June 3, 2016

beware-of-dogsToday’s just one of those days when nothing will do but cute dogs. If you don’t love dogs? Heed this warning: beware of dogs in this post! If you love dogs? You’re in luck today.

Milo bestSo come on! Let’s look at cute dog photos.  I know, he’s cute, right? His name is Milo and he is a nine-year-old Maltipoo, just like Riley. Only not.  Here’s Riley: (yes, that day he was in need of a grooming!)

Maybe I should back up. Our framer has two maltipoos and two cats. Usually, it’s just the dogs in the studio but sometimes, he brings his cats.
Meet Eddie, Milo’s younger brother. He is seven and a total cuddle-bunny. Definitely Daddy’s boy. This is the dog I hoped to get–sweet, cuddly, loving.

But it’s not the dog I got. I got…Riley. Smart, naughty, barky and cuddles only on his terms, if at all. I love him, though, I do.  But I have to admit that it’s fun to visit the framing studio and cuddle with Eddie.

beware-of-dogsOn this day, Milo was begging to go outside.

Milo Mike kittyThe new kitten, a Devon, was also in the studio. Can you find her? As was my husband, just before we went to the gym. Which is why he’s dressed like that.  Anyway, Milo tried to ignore kitty.

How about a few other cute dogs today? I don’t know these dogs, but I wish I did!

You want to see that cute basket of Maltese puppies again, right?  Which dogs are your favorites?

  1. Friday and cute dogs!!! My day has been made! Thanks, Carol and have a wonderful weekend! Hope you get an unexpected cuddle!

  2. This brightened my day. All that’s missing is some pug photos, LOL!

    There are times when posts like this is all that is needed to remind us of the simple joy animals bring to our lives. Adorable…each one of them. I’m partial to dachshunds as my 13 year old Molly is still hanging with us in spite of old age. Together we are rocking this aging thing. Appreciate the smiles today!

  4. Lee Gaitan says:

    Doggone it, this was a perfect (purrfect) Friday post!

  5. Andrea says:

    All the dogs (and the cat too) are absolutely adorable – and if I was able to keep a dog in my house, I would

  6. Cori says:

    Puppies! That’s funny how the one dog wants to sit on the gentleman’s lap while he’s working. Are you sure he’s not part cat? They like to be inconvenient like that.

  7. I love puppies. but to be honest where I am right now with babies I am with puppies. I don’t have the time or the love to give haha so I’ll just play with other peoples.

  8. Adorable. Milo reminds me of the little “terripoo” my mother had for years. It was actually a shock and took a moment to remind myself that it wasn’t Mishay! 🙂 Thanks for the peek at the cute dogs.

  9. Oh, thanks a lot!Just what I needed! We lost our two dogs last year and have been holding out to get another one.My husband and I talk about it but, kinda think its nice not to have to worry about one right now. BUT, now that you have shown me these cute little pupsI am going to have to start looking. I will let you know what happens.

    I have one word for this awesome post, – awwwwww! 🙂
    Lovely way to end the week, glad I dropped by from Blogger’s Pit Stop (always glad to be here).
    Shared and now I want a puppy. 😉
    Hope this weekend is good to you. 🙂

  11. Brian Kessler says:

    Cute! ????
    Milo and Kitty walk-by ignore and then moments later Milo and Kitty tennis ball play! Game on!

  12. Kimmie says:

    Delightful post… Awwww! I was does Milo’s coat stay SO gorgeously white?! He’s stunning… and cute 🙂

  13. Barbara says:

    Awww, what would we do without them? Mine are resting after their ‘spa’ day.

  14. Ruth Curran says:

    Cute freaking overload my friend!!! Dogs are good for the soul aren’t they?

  15. candy says:

    Extremely cute dogs.

  16. carol says:

    Too cute! My favorite dog was a Springer Spaniel named Ginger. I got her as a 5th birthday present. She was the best dog ever. Reading your post made me think of her and smile.

  17. Jennifer says:

    Thank you! I love dogs so much. It’s been a shitty morning so I needed this dose of cuteness!!

  18. Such adorable dogs. We have two: a rat terrier and a terrorist (min pin – chihuahua mix) and adore them both. They rule our lives.

  19. Laurie Stone says:

    OMG. Needed this today. I have my own cute, fluffy little dog so I’m already sold. Thank you!

  20. Bren Pace says:

    I love me some puppies! Thanks for sharing some extra cuteness today!

  21. Awww…! Exactly what I needed. My lone remaining dog has been getting more and more sluggish during our morning walks (he’s nearly 12) and today has refused a few snacks. So unlike him. But this post confirms that we DO need to get another pup when Mickey passes… or possibly before. Thank you!

  22. Klauss says:

    Dogs are relatives of wolves? Or is it another story? Who are their relatives?

  23. Sophia says:

    Oh those little dog are so cute.

  24. I love dogs. Interestingly, I wrote about dogs this week, too. Though, I have to say, your post is much more fun!

  25. Leanne says:

    they are all adorable – I may have gradually morphed into a cat person, but it doesn’t stop me loving a well behaved, well groomed cute little dog or two 🙂

  26. HI Carol,
    Great to see you! We are dog people too. We actually have two maltipoos– Callie and Casper. We have that in common.

  27. Thanks for putting a smile on my face!!

  28. alison says:

    I love these dogs! I feel so happy seeing them and I want to have all of them!

  29. Bree Hogan says:

    Awwww adorable! Dog pictures like these just bring a smile to my face and make the world seem brighter. I’m gonna go hug my fur-baby now!

  30. I don’t think I am really a dog or cat lover but I have loved your post and photos of these adorable little dogs. Oh well, I live in a no pets apartment, so I will enjoy your posts.

  31. Roz Warren says:

    No way I wasn’t going to read this. What fun!

  32. Holy cuteness, Batman! I’m reading this while watching Dogs 101 on Animal Planet. It’s the perfect Saturday! Thanks for sharing this on Blog Share Love,! ????

  33. Tiki says:

    Aww…the dogs are super cute. I keep saying that I want one but it’s hard finding a hypoallergenic dog. 🙁

  34. I’m not much of a dog person, but there are some really cute ones here!

  35. sue says:

    I’m not feeling well today Carol so this post certainly brightened my day. Those eyes how could you resist! My daughter has a miniature schnauzer and she thinks she is human. She is just adorable and has such a lovely relationship with my 2yo grandson (once she got used to the idea that this little human wasn’t temporary but was actually staying!). Thanks for making me smile, we need these posts sometimes don’t we?

  36. Nicole Escat says:

    You’re so blessed to have cutie dogs.

  37. I love dogs and all of their personality quirks. They really do know how to uplift a mood.

  38. These are adorable photos and you had some really cute subjects to work with Carol. Thank you for brightening my day! #blogsharelearn

  39. Meredith says:

    Cute pups! The cat doesn’t look too sure haha

  40. Donna says:

    Emma andherhusband just left, so I was weeping and then read this and started smiling thank you

  41. Lisa Rios says:

    My goodness, these are some cute dogs that anyone would love right away. Milo is the cutest among among them & it is a great feeling when they become a part of your family.

  42. Brianna says:

    Sometimes it is these kinds of happy posts that I really need to see. Thanks for the happy post.

  43. I would have to say the golden retriever is my favorite. For some reason I have an instant dislike of any big or black dog, they just scare me.

  44. Roxy says:

    My little princess Daisy looks just like Milo! She is so adorable and spoiled and I just love her so much. I love all puppies though!

  45. Diane says:

    Oh, so cute! I’m a dog lover forever. My favourite? Old English Sheepdogs. LOVE!

  46. what a couple of cuties! lucky dogs 🙂

  47. Kusum says:

    I am scared of dogs, I leave the elevator and run for the stairs when I see one come for the same ride haha. These look so adorable and cute though 🙂
    xx, Kusum |

  48. Bekka says:

    Beautiful animals! Dogs don’t get enough credit for the well being they bring into humanity.

  49. Aca Baranton says:

    Such a lovely and beautiful bunch of pets you have and what a diversity! Dogs and cat both varieties existing beautiful as it is in all the multicultural societies. I am sure both the brothers must be finding the company of Kitty amusing. I have a small pug, we named him Mack. Mack is very quiet, almost monk-like, seldom barks and does not show much affection, a typical monk-like detachment 🙂
