Going to the Dogs

Remember these famous dogs?
Lassie
Rin-Tin-Tin
Snoopy
Beethoven
Pluto
Marley
Scoobey-Doo
Old Yeller
Benji
Underdog

Wonder where this post is going?

I know there are a lot of others, but these are the names that popped in my head. And then we have two very unfamous dogs, except in their own neighborhood - Wrangler and Shiner Kilgore:


Figured out my intent yet? Keep reading.

I haven't shared a photo of them in a while, and today seemed like a good time to do so because last week Julie Flanders at What Else Is Possible shared the Seriously Cute Blogger award with me:


Ta-Da! See, I did have a plan :)

Now seriously ... isn't he the cutest puppy?

If you haven't visited Julie's blog yet, link over and see what she's writing about today. She's an eclectic blogger, and you won't ever be bored. Every once in a while she talks about her Travels with Clancy, her own seriously cute dog.

In addition to passing this award on to five other bloggers, I have to recommend a book. I've been catching up on some older books written by my all-time favorite authors over the summer, and right now I'm reading (almost finished) RUNNING FROM THE LAW by Lisa Scottoline, published in 1996. It's a book I highly recommend.

It's my pleasure to pass the Seriously Cute Blogger award to:
Jennifer at Me, My Muse and I
Lydia at The Word Is My Oyster
Manzanita at Wanna Buy a Duck
RaShelle at A No. 2 Pencil, Stat!
Summer at My Inner Fairy

Happy Monday!

Congrats on the award! I think Wrangler and Shiner are seriously cute and most likely legends in their own minds. ;)

Congrats! Wrangler and Shiner look very handsome and regal :)

Manzanita said...

Congrats Carol and thank you for passing it on to another dog lover. Wrangler and Shiner are panting from the Texan heat. Such loves. I just want to put my hand down and ruff them behind the ears. I will check out your recommendations. Cheers.

Laura - Perfect! They're definitely legends in their own minds.

Linda G - They said thanks - they're happy someone finally noticed :)

Hart - They think they're perfect - LOL.

Rula - I can't let them read your comment or it will really go to their heads :)

Manzanita - It was about 100 when I took that shot the other day.

Also, your dogs are adorable.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oh thank you!! (For the award and the book recommendation!!!)
I will add it to my Goodreads list!

Carol Kilgore said...

Summer - You're welcome. Great day back :)

Aubrie - Exactly!

Isis Rushdan said...

Congratulations on your cute award, and what a cute post. Not to mention Wrangler and Shiner. They look like fun dogs you can count on no matter what.

Carol Kilgore said...

Alex - Thanks.

Mason - The doggies are getting arrogant now :)

RaShelle - You're welcome.

Jennifer - Very good book. I really like her.

J.L. - Once I thought of one, they all tumbled in. Like a Top 10 list!

Isis - Oh you can count on them all right. I just won't say for what!

Lydia K said...

Oh, thank you so much for the award! It's adorable. Almost as good as having a real puppy!

Carol Kilgore said...

Lydia - Much easier to care for than a real puppy, too!

Stopping by to say Hello from Manzy's blog. Wanna Buy A Duck.

Cute little puppy! Thank you for giving an award to Manzy. I just love her blog.... and her too.

Carol Kilgore said...

I love Manzy and her blog, too. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment :)

Melissa J. Cunningham said...

Fun post! Also, blogger is telling me that your site is dangerous and will give my viruses or something. Don't know how you get that fixed, but thought I'd tell you. I know others are having a similar problem. Sigh.

Carol Kilgore said...

Melissa - Thanks for being brave enough to venture here. Someone else told me this, too. I've gone to the site Google refers me to. I'm not a techie person, but I didn't see anything there that I can do. I've never been to either of the sites it tells me might be a problem, and neither are in my blog roll. My antivirus and anti spyware program tells me both my site and my computer are clean. So I don't know what else to do. If others are having a similar problem, I wonder if it's really a Google/Blogger problem?

Tara said...

Aww, adorable - excess hair and all. ;-)

Congrats on the award!

Carol Kilgore said...

Tara - Yeah, I think we'll keep them :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Congrats on the award, the dogs are cute!

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks, Clarissa :)

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Look at those adorable pups, Wrangler and Shiner. I love their names, too!

Congratulations on the blog award. And thank you for the links!

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks. And you're welcome :)

Julie said...

Thanks for the shout-out, Carol! I LOVE the pic of Wrangler and Shiner, what cuties. They are gorgeous, and they look so cute sitting together. I will check out these other blogs now. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Oops, Julie, I almost missed this. The doggies say thanks!
