Hi-ya. My brain is giving me the silent treatment today, so I'm going to go with an easy breezy post. Nothing too strenuous or thought-provoking. After all, this is Labor Day weekend... which means NO LABOR, people!
The dog days, they call 'em. That's a rather nice name for that long hot sultry period parts of the Northern hemisphere swelter through from early June to early September. Theoretically, that means they should be drawing to an end soon, but this is Georgia. Hot weather likes to linger.
So in honor of dog days, I'm going to share some of my favorite dog pics and cartoons. (Sorry, Joanne! I'll have something extra special just for YOU at the end...)
Life is never boring when you have pets.
Sniffing, licking and sleeping are exhausting.
Even dogs have grumpy days.
Poor baby's having a hard time recognizing his pal's scent...
Talk about man's best friend!
Well, technically, maybe he's right...?
Geez, and we always tried to blame it on the dog... I reckon turn-about's fair play.
Sometimes, it's just too darned HOT to trot around for no good reason.
Even more mellooooow.
Sorry, Rover. You're gonna have to settle for a hug.
Doggone it, that's enough pics! I'm getting a little carried away here. (I hope some of them gave you a little lift.)
And now... (Insert drum roll, please) JUST for the lovely Joanne, who is not a critter-lover.
You know, I really love our cats, but after going through so many of my dog pictures, I'm thinking it'd be kinda nice to have a dog again. There's something magical about the bonds we can form with dogs, so maybe we should get a magical dog... something like a chocolate labracadabradour...
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
Today, I will live in the moment. Unless it's unpleasant, in which case, I'll eat a cupcake.
