Dog Day

Five dogs we met in the park:

Five great quotes about dogs:

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face. ~Ben Williams

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too. ~Samuel Butler, Notebooks, 1912

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why. ~Author Unknown

My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am. ~Author Unknown

The pug is living proof that God has a sense of humor. ~Margo Kaufman

Five of my favorite movies about Dogs:

101 Dalmations

The show was on TV back in black & white- Lassie! That dog was so smart (compared to its' human owners!) it must have been two midgets in a fur coat....

Mike M said...

Old Yeller is by far my favorite1

Patti said...

If Lassie was so smart, why didn't he tell Timmy not to fall in the well?

Just kidding. I liked the old Black and White Lassie show too ~

Paul said...

dogs are like potato chips.. you cant have just one

I have three rotweilers Lady is true to her name she is mothering and gentle but the most dangerous of our watchdogs if she doesnt know you.
Rocky got his name cos his a fighter he very almost died and I Only just pulled him through by feeding him meds every two hours day and night now he's and obsessive fetch player.
and Tigra.. Tigra is just dumb

I loved see spot run

Totally loved the quotes! I have a dog, she is 8 years old and her name is Mya Marie. She is a Maltese and I rescued her when she was three years old. She is definitely a goof.

my fave dog movie is "Eight Below" which I would have NEVER watched if it hadn't been the movie on a flight from Chicago. It iss really great.

I was a Lassie fan too. Your quotes are perfect, and warm my heart. Thank you so much.

I love my Rosie. She's a great companion and very funny. It's great to see that other people love their dogs too! :)

Hammer said...

I like the shepherd-looking one because it looks like our dog. Hmm. Does "Dog Day Afternoon" count? Did you ever see the time Jimmy Stewart read a poem about his dog on the Carson show? Omigosh. You think it's gonna be funny, and then you cry.

Michael C said...

I feel compelled to say that my retriever Mabel sleeps on her back with all 4 legs spread eagle...does this mean she's easy??

Loving Annie said...

Odat ! Odat ! Dances around with a big happy smile and hugs ! ODAT !!! So good of you to come visit ! What a nice surprise !

I'd have had to pet all of those 5 dogs - they all looked adorable !

And great quotes, too !

I missed you !

hugs again and more smiles,
Loving Annie

Lizza said...

Awww, cute pics. And the quotes are so true.

I loved Old Yeller. Made me bawl.

Odat said...

danielle, Welcome back and thank you so very much!

pawlie, As you can see I have a propensity towards flat nosed dogs...;-). Dog Day Afternoon is as good a dog movie as any!
And now that you mentioned the Jimmie Stewart read, I seem to recall something way back in the recesses of my mind about that.

michael, and why were you compelled to tell us all that??
and yes, it shows she's easy! ;-)

Annie, Good to see you too!!!!

lizza, good to see you!! yes, Old Yeller is a real tear jerker!
