I May Not Be Zazzy but I’m Zappy!



Hi Y’all!




It’s time to answer your questions and join up with 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.




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”




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?”



The shadow is the shed…




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”




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



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”



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



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.




Finally, Yesterday



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”




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!





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



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


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!




Y’all come back now!

Can You Have Technomania and Technophobia Both?



Hi Y’all!



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.



Sigh…following this scent back to Monday…Quagswag…



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




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????”



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.




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.”




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”



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


Golden Woofs! SUGAR asked  

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


Hurry to get that bumper back to my Human.





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…



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”




Goose, from Gospel of Goose is preparing for his journey across the Bridge.  It’s a journey he must make without his Mom, Michelle.  Please send all your POTP to Goose and his mom at this difficult time of parting.  






Y’all come on back.
