Cute readers AND cute dogs! Thanks to all the dog owners and dog friends who sent pix!
Don’t let Chancey’s teeny size fool you. He just did some rock climbing in Tahoe with his people. They’re fit, he’s fit and they live in Capitola, CA. I know him. And his people. Like in real life.
Awwww….Buddy’s a handsome guy, isn’t he? His owner says that innocent face is because he’s just done something naughty, but I don’t believe it for a minute. Do you?
As in Hammett. Dashiell Hammett. What a fabulous name and he looks like a sweet fella, doesn’t he? Any dog that has a literary name AND is that cute could be a good friend of mine. A REAL good friend!
Oh, now, seriously: is there a nicer breed than the doodle mixes? Lambeau is a labradoodle, which means personality-plus. One of Riley’s friends is a Golden Doodle–they loved to play when she was a pup– and if she weren’t now too big for him I’d babysit her. But Lambeau? Any person would be lucky to have Lambeau. Swoon!
This is sweet Lily, who belongs to a former colleague and friend in Florida. I remember when she got Lily, but now this sweetheart’s in her elder years. But never fear. Keeping her young is…
…her younger brother, Oliver. What a fine fella he is! He looks like he just stepped out of a painting. The Cavaliers have the sweetest faces in the world. Oliver’s a great name; I had a Weimaraner named Oliver many years ago.
Rhino & Mitzi, RIP
Rhino & Mitzi were beloved dogs of my friend, R. And weren’t they adorable?
Don’t ask. This photo looks perfectly straight on my screen.
Anyway, this is George, R’s current dog. He’s camera-shy, and this is her best shot of him. I think he’s messing with my Mac.
I met Shaggy the other night. A seriously beautiful dog with a lovely disposition. Thank you, Cecelia, for sending a seasonal photo! Of course, this raises the question if Cecelia brought Shaggy to the pumpkin patch alone OR if there was a child involved. Of course, I couldn’t blame her for giving Shaggy a holiday experience even without a child. Any dog fanatic would do the same. Like me.
I went to college with my friend Jack, and while he doesn’t have a dog of his own, he is godfather to dogs and one is Little Charlie, who still looks great in a tutu at age 13 and won first prize with it in a Halloween contest. Charlie is a female, not a cross-dresser.
Our Little He
Isn’t he handsome? You’re probably wondering why we have all those throw rugs. Little He is now almost 16 and he can’t get traction on hardwood. Little He is truly the nicest dog ever. He was found in M’s front yard at less than 2 months old and the thought was that his mother was from a pack of feral dogs that roamed Coconut Grove area of Miami. He’s lived with M. ever since. It was my lucky day when he joined my pack.
“Ah-hooo! Werewolves of London…”
My little pumpkin, Riley, is always ready for his closeup, even when he’s doing a big solo, as in the photo above. He’s a Warren Zevon fan, yes. And, it’s seasonal music this month.
Lovely Chloe, who belonged to my friend, Barbara….may that pretty kitty rest in peace. She’s so cute we’ll make her an honorary dog. She probably has already reincarnated as one already. Although that expression on her face is pure cat.
