Smile…it’s Friday


Whatever you do this weekend, Sam and I hope that your barking is loads of fun. Any special plans?

Live, love, bark! <3

Go ahead…make my day

IMG_1011  Saw this on Pinterest and nearly spit coffee all over the laptop. While I’ve known some fairly fierce Standard Poodles. Sam…ahem…isn’t in that category unless you’re the serial killer mail lady or the Chessie from down the street that for some inexplicable reason he despises though he’s never had ANY encounters with him. He’d more than likely knock you over by leaning hard against your leg or kissing you to death.

Today is the last day of September, where the heck did the month go? Yikes! Happy mid-week. October is coming and it’s my favorite color. 🙂

Live, love, bark! <3

Saturday Smiles

We’re off to hospice and the hospital this weekend (after the…ahem…dreaded bath and fluff job-shhh, please don’t mention it out loud to Sam). But before we go, here’s a smile which I think everyone who owns a dog can relate (truth in fact, I had this experience while on the laptop-silly Sam). Enjoy the weekend and the smile! 😉

Fun Fursday



Clearly somebody wasn’t all that keen on going out when they saw more of the white stuff and I don’t  blame them one bit. That was my reaction as well but since kibbles aren’t free, there’s not much choice on my part.

Live, love, bark! <3

Wordless Wednesday

Sam has this "tell"
Sam’s tail gives away his “tell”

Happy mid-week on a wordless Wednesday.

I’ll have what she’s having…

image25 years ago on July 12, 1989 (egad…am I really old enough as to have an “I remember when” moment?), one of the most delightful movies of all time opened in selected theatres across America.  When Harry Met Sally debuted, it became the quintessential template for future romantic comedies. And who could forget that classic line by director Rob Reiner’s own Mom in the deli scene…I’ll have what she’s having?”

The movie (loosely based on Reiner’s own return to single life following divorce) examines whether men and women can ever be just friends and established a new way of thinking about everyday male/female relationships as viewed in the 80’s.  All those back and forth, quirky one-liners we heard throughout the movie set the stage for an enduring and enjoyable film.  Meg Ryan went on to become America’s sweetheart and Billy Crystal underscored his chops for impeccable comedic timing.

I, for one, hope that this weekend there’s at least one showing of this timeless film so I can at least record it for later viewing and relish all the classic exchanges between the title characters.  Like this one: Harry Burns: There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance. Sally Albright: Which one am I? Harry Burns: You’re the worst kind; you’re high maintenance but you think you’re low maintenance.😄

Wishing you a fabulous weekend.  Just thinking about what to order the next time at a deli, makes me giggle a bit.  ❤️
