Happy National Dog Day!
Saturday, August 26th, 2023

On Tuesday, I asked for photos of your special friends to help celebrate this holiday. I thought you might enjoy it, and boy howdy, I got some pictures. Thank you to everyone who shared. The photos below are in no particular order. I included whatever note you wanted me to include! And if I somehow missed posting your pictures, email me, and I’ll add them! The winner of the GC (as announced on Tuesday’s post—and selected by a random number generator) is…Eileen McCall’s Taz!

Rebecca Mertz’s Banjo

Banjo- 3 1/2 months old. Pom/chihuahua.

Sara’s Sherlock

This is Sherlock. He was a rescue and the shelter had pulled all his teeth. Our first meeting was in a yard full of dogs and all were running around but Sherlock came and leaned against my leg and sat at my feet for to be petted. He goes everywhere with me.

Steph Coutts’ Ozzy & Ripley

I don’t have dogs but my son has two: Ozzy the mini horse and Ripley the double-doodle.

Anna Taylor Sweringen’s Ruby Scully

Beverly Blank’s Rio

This is my Grandpuppy, Rio. He’s the Gentle Giant in our family. His size would scare you off but he’s so good with my Grandchildren.

Colleen Conklin’s Tinkerbell

This is Tinkerbell. Sadly, we recently lost her. She had just turned 14. She will always be in our hearts!

Eileen McCall’s Taz

My little 22# Mini Australian Shepherd Taz (Tasmanian Devil).

Jennifer Beyer’s Mutt

This is one of the places my dog loved the most.  It was supposed to be my reading bench, but it became her watching the outdoors post.

Lori Allen Wojtyszyn’s Rajah & Louie

This is my Rajah. She’s a 187lbs of pure Newfoundland lovin’! This is her trick. She drinks out of bathroom sink. She turns it on all by herself & shuts it off.

This is also my Louie. He’s an English Bulldog who doesn’t leave my side…including when I shower. He continuously peeks in the shower checking to see if I’m done. He sleeps snuggled up in my neck. The only times he leaves my side besides to eat, go potty, to greet people & when the Christmas tree is up. He’s obsessed with laying under the tree.

Rachel Blackburn’s Miss Raya

This is Miss Raya. She just turned 2 and goes absolutely crazy when we get the water hose out! She loves to drink from it and jumps around like crazy!

Laura LeCapelain’s Shamie & Chewie


This Saturday is National Dog Day! (Contest)
Monday, August 21st, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…Eileen McCall!

Saturday will be National Dog Day! Woohoo! We love our furry friends, don’t we? I’m sharing a picture of one of our EIGHT dogs above. She’s Judy the Sheltie. The picture was taken last winter when we got some very rare snow.

So, here’s what we’re going to do to celebrate this special day….

Send a picture of your dog (or your mom’s, or kids’) to me at I’m going to re-post them on Saturday, so you can share the love. If you like, tell me their name and, if you want, a little bit about them (you don’t have to!). I’ll post it all. If you send me a photo, leave a comment below to let me know to be on the lookout. One dog-lover will get a $5 Amazon gift card.

A Christmas (sort of) Puzzle! (Contest)
Monday, December 19th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Sandy Kelly!

I couldn’t help myself. I was looking for a topic to talk about this morning, thought I had one, then went looking for a picture to use and found the cutest Christmas (sort of) picture. I knew I had to use it in a puzzle, but I have to do it this week, so… If you want to know why I love it, you’ll have to solve it!

My topic was going to be about having kids underfoot all week, being covered up in pets (we have 9 dogs, 4 cats, a bunny, and a betta!), and me being driven mad by dog hair, cat puke, and cleaning bunny cages and fish tanks, while, I might add, trying to wrap up several editing projects this week. There’s no rest for a self-employed writer/editor. No vacations allowed! EXCEPT, I think I’m going to Hawaii in July, so I’m giving warning… I WILL NOT BE HELD HOSTAGE BY DOGS, CATS, FISH, RABBITS or EDITS! There. I got that off my chest. Now, let’s play!

Comment about anything at all—topic of your choice—for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card!
