Monday Musings ~ September 18, 2023

Gotcha Day

While I played ‘Queen for the weekend,’ and paw-tied like it’s 1999, today is Monday which means we get to start the week out with a smile.

And by smile, I don’t mean at the one above. And if you snickered at it, I WILL find you. Mom is already on notice; you can see me plotting my revengeย  ย  .


She is not getting away unscathed for having me pose in multiple photo sessions. I will get even, despite her trying to bribe me make it up to me by making the best scrambled egg breakfast on my special day while showering me with loads of attention and tasty high-value treats all weekend. And because I’m not a complete tool, here’s your Monday smile. You’re welcome.


Here’s hoping all your ‘go’s’ are pawsome the entire week.

Live, love, bark! ๐Ÿพ

  1. We would love to have a hat like that. Posing is so normal around here, we don’t mind it at all, but Madison is our queen and she only has a crown, not a fancy hat like yours. Have a Grand week.

    1. Many thanks. I found it at a Halloween store across the street from the car dealer that services my car ages ago and kind of forgot about it. They have a whole section for pets-I think I need to go back again just to check out their inventory. So much fun.

    1. Pretending aside, I know Elsa’s limits. It makes life simpler all around. Norman was such a good boy when it came to all the silly positions I put him in but she’s a challenge. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Aww, thatโ€™s very sweet of you to say. Thanks. That cartoon made me chuckle. Iโ€™ve had more than one dog who could have created it. ๐Ÿ˜†

    1. She appreciates that. But we both know it was a funny look and worth her rath. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  2. Ooh Elsa, you look so cute and regal in that pose. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Happy Monday and thanks for the laugh with the comic. Now I know what my dogs are thinking. LOL!

    1. Thank you! Hope you had a good time at the beach. Who knew dogs were such philosophers? ๐Ÿคฃ Happy Monday.

            1. Thanks. I donโ€™t know whatโ€™s going on with WP but I may have to have a come to Jesus chat with them about this and that stupid new thing weโ€™re you have to sign in every time you want to leave a comment. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    1. Thanks, John. It was. I think she was cheesed off at me because I was laughing so hard. She really hates photo sessions but sure likes the chicken jerky. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Monday.

    1. Seems like it’s a long line of reluctant sor somewhat reluctant social media stars at my house (Sam would look away just as the shutter captured him doing it). Sigh. But I guess that’s what makes those pics extra special.

    1. Elsa: {grumble, grumble} We don’t understand why you uprights are always trying to take our pictures!
      The Mom: Oh that dog! LOL

    1. Thanks Susan. She’s reluctant to have that responsibility and says she understands how Meghan & Harry feel. ๐Ÿ‘‘

    1. Thanks, Frank. I was thinking of you yesterday as the hapless Donkeys imploded again shortly after taking a 21-3 lead, only to lose. Yet again. At least the Avs won their preseason game on Sunday. I’ve actually begun to watch college football (well, at least Coach Prime and the Buffs) for football entertainment. Sorry about your Bengals. Must have been tough losing to the state rival. One the NFL plus side, Marco’s fish are looking good. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿˆ

        1. I couldn’t have been happier for him. I think I hate the Pats as much as he does. Prime is a definitely a force-always has been that way. You either love him or hate him but you can’t deny he’s delivering on his promises so far and the kids sure seem to like him. Time with tell. Yup, the Ducks will be a tough game especially at home.

    1. Thanks so much. I wish she weren’t so reluctant to have pics taken but she caught on real quick that there’d be loads of treats in it for her. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a great Monday and an even better week!

  3. I couldnโ€™t resist wanting to take your photo either -as you are so beautiful. And you look especially regal in that crown. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿพ

    1. You’re too kind, Paulette. Thank you. She always hates having her photo taken but I’m hoping with enough tasty treats, she’ll be patient with me. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Monday.

    1. Thank you, dear Milo! Mom says my curls need snipping again. Jeez, we just did this a month ago! Have a happy Monday.

  4. Love the cartoon and love your poses, Elsa. Well done. You made me say awww and smile.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays as usual.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Big hug to you and scritches to Elsa. โ™ฅ

    1. Thanks as always for your kind comment and for adding us to your Monday link. We hope you have a super week!

    1. Elsa has decided she’s not impressed by the whole royalty thing but thanks you for the kind comment. Happy Monday!

    1. Aww, thank you. You’re too kind. She was definitely not happy about having to wear a hat AND pose for the pic. LOL
