Oh Snap! Shots Friday: Gone to the Dogs (& Cats)

All I can say

I asked you to send me some pictures of your pets and... well, you did. Big time. I received more pictures of pets than I have of anything else...even kids. And you know people love their kids!

We don't have a pet right now (a fact my oldest continually nags me about), but we did have a dog a few years back before having kids. Her name was "Baby". She was like our kid. We bathed her, fed her, took her to the doctor, groomed her, played with and cuddled with her. She was the best dog. She didn't bark. She didn't bite. She was playful and sweet.

But she did have one nasty habit.

She'd leave us a "present" behind our recliner every time we had to board her. No exceptions. We even tried hiring a house sitter to stay with her while we went away. She still left us "the gift" upon our return.

But, as much as we hated cleaning up her "retaliation", we miss that dog. She was such a little personality.

So, here's to all of you who have little furry kids running around (or running) your house. Enjoy it all. Even..."the gifts". :)

In Real Life,

"Could you please turn those bright lights off?" -  Smokey,  Greenville, South Carolina

     "Hay Ma! I'm diggin' a hole to China!" - Dixie, White Plains, Alabama

"Oh...Hey Mom. What? I've got a little something on my lip?"

"Maybe if I just lick a little off the side..."

"Gee...I didn't expect you to come home so early..." 

"What?! I heard you talking about a 'mud bath', so I just thought..." - Bella

"Maybe if I play dead she won't even notice I dug up her brand new window box..." 
- Jack, Mount Olive, Alabama

New doggie beds: BEFORE

New Doggie Beds: AFTER

But best of all,
Pets teach us to stop and smell the flowers...

Bogey, as a puppy

Whew! See? I told you I had a lot turned in. They were so cute, though. I really enjoyed seeing all of your "kids". (and their messes...)

I hope you all had a fantastic Fourth of July! Ours was a "blast" (no pun intended)! This weekend is going to be full of housework...oh, joy. So, to make my days brighter, send me pics! Of anything! The funnier, the better.

Next week's theme is... (drumroll please) "Air Your Dirty Laundry" I want pics that deal with laundry. Laundry rooms, kids in the laundry basket, kids on the laundry machines, laundry disasters, piles of laundry, etc. Anything to do with laundry. That leaves it WIDE open... 

Go ahead and start snapping! I can't wait to see 'em.

PS. If you aren't a "follower", go ahead and join right now. It might take a sec, but you will get to be entered in my upcoming give-away. Details soon... I promise!
