A Girl and Her Dog

Daisy, figuring that Krissy could use some puppy time today. Krissy agrees.

  1. The true face of socialism? Don’t kid yourselves. The Reds would infilitrate a puppy into every God-fearing American’s home. But true patriots don’t need love or family or even homes. They just need the righteous glow of knowing that only the deserving have cuddly pets and that one day they will be among the elect to own a spaniel or at least a corgi of some kind.

  2. That’s possibly the best picture you’ve ever taken. Well, maybe not; that’s a hard thing to judge. But really an exceptionally wonderful one.

  3. I need puppy time, too. Unfortunately, I am puppyless at the moment. Perhaps Sunday, I will go to the rescue adoption place and cuddle their puppies for a while.

  4. Dog snuggling should happen to all humans. I’m lucky enough to have my own little dawg at the office with me most days. Just now, he’s wiggling at me because we are late for the midday walk.

  5. Bruce Diamond – Flyover Land on the teeming Mississippi River – Despicably proud old man. Text-extruding asshole (thank you, John Scalzi) with a skewed vision on life, pop culture, writing and general assholiness. Not a scholar, not a gentleman, not Martin or Lewis. But still trying to make life fun and funny.

    PrivateIron, I know you were trying to be funny, but did you have to drag that political trash in here, even in satirical form? C’mon, man, have some respect for dog time.

  6. iamthesupercommittee – Nonne E. Souris is not the real name of a professional living and working in Los Angeles. The author holds a Master's degree in History, reads a lot, and does not want to receive hate mail, death threats, letter bombs, or any of the other unpleasant correspondence resorted to by those whose disagreement with philosophical questions drives them to violent rage. If you get that mad about discussion, get therapy. If you can participate in a civil discussion, welcome.

    Beautiful photo. Also: good dog!

  7. Lovely, lovely photo.

    One of my patients has an elderly and very sweet Golden Retriever; having said dog mosey up and lean her forehead on my leg is frequently the highlight of my week. Viva puppy time!

  8. PI, we know you’re trying to be lighthearted and clever, just be careful to not stumble into clevers failure mode! Awesome photo by the way John.

  9. Beautiful moment captured, John. The term “unconditional love” gets bandied about quite a bit with dogs – rarely is the absolute comfort and purity of the concept so wonderfully captured. I’ve been lucky enough to share my life with two wonderful dogs so far, and this photo brings me tears of joyful recognition of the deep bond we can have with these wonderful characters.

    Now please excuse me, I must go and hug my puppy and blub for a bit.

Donna Leonard – Southern California – I like to write, read, knit, crochet, watch movies, watch way too much television, listen to music and play Drawsomething 2 somewhat obsessively, not necessarily in that order.

    What great photo! No wonder you wanted to share it with the world!

  11. Wife and self are currently suffering through a period of no dogs. Six years ago we had three. The last of them passed away unexpectedly in March. We’re living in a temporary place while our house is being renovated and can’t have a dog. Your photo made me simultaneously very happy, deeply envious, and profoundly sad. We are very much looking forward to getting back into our house in January. We will be all over the local rescue organizations on that day.

  12. Yep, I’m a cat person too but you got me!

    I hope Krissy gets better soon. Also, am wondering what you are going to do with the foot cast. I mean, it’s not as if you could stick a strip of bacon to it…

  13. the author is me ! – Lady owner of 1 business in hospitality..here I will endeavour to blog and entertain you all with my never ending dramas, thoughts, observations and such blah! Sometimes I can be very tongue in cheek and you the people who know me, will never know if 'you' are my current muse, I will write when I am sad, or if something amuses me, or angers me or confuses me, or if I remember some far and distant memory that makes me feel warm inside, or maybe tearful at the thought of it. I will also write complete random nonsense and throw the odd song or video in just because I can. Please feel free to comment and if I see you here liking my posts or lurking in my stats, I promise to pop over to your blog and support you also. ( unless your a bit of a nutter and scary then I might back off !) So welcome to my Blog, its a bit random, often odd and very 'blonde' and full of dodgy grammar and even dodgier music choices that may make you cringe...but its all me pure and simple. so open the door to Heysugarsugar's world, sit down and get comfy and I hope you enjoy the ride... ...believe me you aint seen nothing yet!

    Beautiful x

  14. John, lovely photo. We all need quality snuggling time with our pets. My dog thinks that she is my child (and is terribly spoiled) but she just receives the love she deserves. Daisy clearly requires some Frosty Paws doggie ice cream. Your lovely wife deserves Ben &Jerry ice cream, but you need to be close to help her if necessary.

  15. One, great picture. Two, don’t show this to my daughter. She wants a dog. My five cats would disagree with this idea. But it is way too cute for words.

  16. What a sweet photo. So peaceful. I didn’t understand why people made a big fuss about dogs before I got 2 last September. Was always a cat person. Now I completely understand.

  17. I had surgery years ago and my two Manchester Terriers never left my side during my recuperation. Dogs know when you feel bad. (so do cats, but that’s a post for another day)
