While I am the proud owner of two hunting dogs, the last thing they tracked down was the couch. While they are BIRD dogs this morning they decided they would be hounds and went after a big, fat, orange, tabby that was stalking birds in the brush. Blerg! I need to work on their recall because apparently it's nonexistent when there's a tasty cat around.
This little incident reminded me of when my neighbor was bragging about his yellow lab's hunting exploits. Apparently it's a big, big deal if a bird dog can retrieve two birds, who knew. So it was around the holidays when he stopped by to regale this amazing and heroic "double-retrieve" story. While he was telling the story all I could think of was, wow, my dog just stole our entire pumpkin pie off the counter and ate it.

Dogs are always cape-able as well as hat-able, scarf-able and shirt-able.
Here are a some photos of my dog models.
(no animals were hurt during these photo shoots just a little humiliated)
Fudge (one of my crazy fosters)
Ronan (allergy scratching prevention)
Kato (adventures in knitting)
Nadia (my dog-in-law)

Kato is always trying to be the most popular dog in the house. He knows a good cup o'joe is a sure way to a girl's heart.
On another "pup-ular" note. Check out Mônica Carnesi's newly released children's book, "Little Dog Lost: The True Story of a Brave Dog Named Baltic."
It's a heart warming story illustrated with wonderful watercolours. Make sure you read it with a hot cup of cocoa and a big box of tissues.
Congratulations to Mônica on this wonderful achievement!
