I May Not Be Zazzy but I’m Zappy!

 

 

Hi Y’all!

 

P1510648

Let’s take a look back at Long Days and Tall Shadows

Mark Muller and easy wanted to know…

“Have a super sunday...I bet if you can see your shadow we will get a super summer, right?
easy rider”

 

P1510625

 

That’s what we’re all hopin’!

JoAnn Stancer from Sand Springs Chesapeakes wonders…

“Wow that is one big and weird shadow, wonder what it could be, a house of some sort?”

P1510624

 

The shadow is the shed…

 

P1510451

 

Movin’ on the Saturday’s post Ventana Window to My World… Mark Muller  wants to know…“that's a great photo... have you seen tasty things that you licked your nose? Have a super saturday!!!
easy rider”

 

P1450258

 

BOL!  Must have been thinkin’ about the treat I’d get when I took this bumper back to my Human.

 P1510466

 

I had the following query on U is for Undate… Janet Keefe  asked “Thanks for yet another great vocabulary lesson....that was a new one on me! Luke has fur that is undate in places as well. Is that how you use it? It doesn't sound right. :)
Jan, Wag 'n Woof Pets”

 

P1510650

Undate means wavy or having a waved surface. In botany it is the same as undulate.  My coat is undate.  It’s wavy.

 

P1510475 

Now, I don’t want to keep y’all in suspense, since this is the end of the alphabet and tomorrow is May Day!  So…the title translates…I may not be flashy or stylish but I’m lively and entertaining.

 

P1510681

 

Finally, Yesterday

 

P1510682

Mark Muller  wanted to know…

“you had sun, right? I always wonder why the shadows of the trees look different than the trees itself.... that's probably magic huh? ..... and now my momma sings that beatles song in my ear... sigh...
easy rider”

 

P1510684

 

Mostly rain, but, yes, we had a peek of sun. 

 

 

Y’all hurry on back!

X is for Xenia Rose

 

 

Hi Y’all!

 

Today it’s time to join Tuesday’s Tails blog hop is hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs.

In keeping with the A to Z challenge, today’s featured shelter pet has a name beginning with “Z”.  

Without further adieu, may I introduce Xenia Rose!

 

Y’all hurry on back!

 

 

“Hello, I’m Xenia Rose.  I’m about a year old. 

I’m wishing for my own family. They think I’m a Boston mix weighing in at 35lbs. They tell me my “exuberant personality is contagious”. I’m already house and crate trained and know basic commands.

I love to play with other dogs and chase balls. Ah, that’s chase…better have a good supply since the name of my game is “chase”.  If you want me to return the balls you’ll have to show me what you want. Oh, and they recommend a home with no small children since I might knock them down when playing.  Other than that, I’m good with kids and dogs!

I’m up to date on my shots and spayed. You can meet me at Rescue Ranch in Rutledge GA.  For more information, please contact the foster mommas at 770-500-0480 in Rutledge, GA”

W is for Wheeple

 

 

 

Hi Y’all!

 

 

P1510634

 

Today I’m joining Alfie’s Blog, Snoopy’s Dog Blog and My Brown Newfies for the telling of mischief…

 

P1510635

How many of y’all whistle to call your dog, or signal your dog to get his/her attention?

P1510637

My Human carries a whistle when we’re hikin’ and I’m runnin’ off leash.  However, when we’re in the small yard in the high country she doesn’t bother.  No, she just wheeples.  It is the most feeble whistle you have ever heard!

 

P1510632

 

Y’all come back now!

Can You Have Technomania and Technophobia Both?

 

 

Hi Y’all!

 

P1200147

Today I’m joining Thursday’s Barks and Bytes Blog Hop hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Heart Like a Dog.

I’m also linkin’ up with Ruckus the Eskie and Love is Being Owned by a Husky in Thoughtless Thursday.

 

P1200141

Sigh…following this scent back to Monday…Quagswag…

 

P1510576

Mark Muller and Easy asked…  

Your coat is waterproof? Wow! Do you use a magic spray like Aquanet? My mom said that made her fur waterproof too in the 80s :o)
easy rider

 

P1510604

 

And Frankie Furter and Ernie want to know…   

“OMD Aquaqnet... that Easy Cracks us up...
We did not know that your furs are Water Proof... does that mean that you never have to have a Baff????”

 

P1510579

BOL!  No, I don’t use Aquanet.  I have a big thick double coat.  It makes my coat shed water more easily than some other breeds.

 

P1510580 

 

Groovy Goldendoodles remarked…

“Sounds like you've gotten plenty practice shaking your coat huh Hawk? It rained so much here last night I thought we would float away. Weather's crazy all over the globe.”

 

P1510581

 

Janet Keefe   

“"Quagswag" - I wonder if you could use that as a command to get your dog to shake? :)
We are just starting to get all the rain everyone else has been complaining about today, and I guess we're in for it all week.
Jan, Wag 'n Woof Pets”

 

P1510603

I bet we are so smart we could learn to use any word for a command for anything.  As a matter of fact, we don’t even need words! 

 

About black and white Sunday’s post Hurry, Hurry

P1510533

Golden Woofs! SUGAR asked  

“Is it time to go ... WHERE? Happy Sunday. Golden Woofs”

 

Hurry to get that bumper back to my Human.

 

P1510609

 

 

Murphy asked… 

“Gotta throw it again?
Your Pals,
Murphy & Stanley”

You nailed it Murphy!  Takes a retriever to know a retriever! 

 

Finally, about Friday’s post on Olfactology…

 

P1510383

Cathy Armato had this to say…

“This was definitely the perfect followup to your Nasology post. Great photos, I'm happy to see you're still havin' fun doing the same thing as you were doing last year! If it ain't broke, why fix it?? LOL!
Love & Biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them”
