From Florida Cracker, and from Mickey’s Musings, this CARNIVAL OF THE DOGS, to honor the dear canines among us — they sure deserve it.

I don’t have a dog at the moment, much to my pained loss, but I do have a number of favored dog photos and view them often. And will have another dog soon, I’m sure.

Among some of my favorite dog photos…

    Yeah, they are just great dogs. But, then, they all are, ha. But, Bosco’s a really, really great dog, you’re right. A lot of Weimaraner’s don’t do well with pet cats, though, since they aggressively pursue anything that runs awaaaay.

    If you’d like to join us for this week’s Carnival, just Me and we’ll add you on! Just in….. Suzy’s…

    That Weimaraner’s too much. To me they always look like they’re made out of velvet.

  4. I think the bovine version is “dogie” with only one “g” and, consequently, a long-sounding “o” as in hope.

    Hi ti yi git along little dogies,
    It’s your misfortune and none of my own.

    You know that Wyomin’ will be your new home.

    As in, “get along, little dawgies…” and pronounced similarly, as in, “DAHHW-geez” with a hard “g”.

    Still lunch and somethin’ to chase for dogs everywhere (and some of us humans, too). What’s important is what those there big red and white steaks sound like to dogs. I think it’s probably, “get some.”

  7. Ugly Dog

    His owner, Susie Lockheed, said that he is so ugly that even the judges recoiled when he was placed on the judging table. Ms. Lockheed, was allergic to hairy dogs so Sam – a Chinese Crested – is perfect. His owner says she has never been so devoted to…
