The Dog Days of August

Last week, Country Girl Kate waxed poetically about her fantastic dog George.  I must admit to having a little crush on him myself.  And if you've ever visited Pioneer Woman, you know all about her dogs.  I am still sad about Nell.  Let's not forget Dooce and her awesome Chuck and dog-in-training Coco.  Asthmagirl has her Brute Squad.  Hallie has her own Wonderful World of Weiners.  Dlyn has Riley who may win the most photogenic dog out there.

Well folks, I have Dora.
Let's look at her style.
Her poise.
She how graceful she is under her mommy's desk.
She doesn't look too worried about that mean storm outside.
Nope.  She's just fine.
Thank you very much.
Do any of you have pets with such raw talent?
I ask you:  Isn't she amazing?

Your Dora is nice and all that....

But STELLA!!! What about my adorable and adoring STELLA??? How could you have forgotten to mention her???

Flea said...

Dora is truly amazing. Especially considering that my Patches disappears into the tub every time it storms. Dora shows amazing restraint.

Caution Flag said...

We happen to think that any dog that doesn't bite and get its owners sued is a winner.

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Dora looks MIGHTY talented. Seriously...have you considered getting her an agent?

Hallie :)

What a beautiful pup. Is she hiding from the storms? My Maxie is brave and especially wonderful in that she always seems to need to go out when the rain is falling, the thunder clapping and the lightening stiking close to home. And I take great comfort in knowing that she has a collar with a metal ring attached to a leash with a metal clip being held by my hand! And now that she is 14 plus, she doesn't hear the thunder so she really unaffected by the noise now!

asthmagirl said...

Wow. I'm retiring the Brute Squad. There's no point in going forward given Dora's sheer talent and beauty.

Sigh... it was fun while it lasted!

tj said...

...Oh she's got a sweet face! And those eyes! I bet she gets anything she wants too...lol...

...Thunderstorms makes our dog eat. And so do sunny days. And now that I think about it, so does snow. And so does the theme song to Wheel of Fortune. And... Well, you get the picture... ;o)

...And I have to agree with 'tsannie' up there...Stella, how could you forget Stella?!

...And thanks for the links too. I just visited 'dlyn & Riley' - what a hoot! :o)

...Happy Monday! Blessings too...

Dora is my kind of pup!! My Labs drive us crazy around 5:30p, they bark up and down the hall for NSLO to come out of hiding and feed them. Most days they get No Satisfaction, so they come running back and park in front of me...

Dora, you can come to my house any day!

Have a great Monday.

PS: if the gum was sugarless...no calories burned.

Good Dora pix, but I'd like to request one showing her underbite. Can't get enough of those.

Trisha said...

Pets are so wonderful! Dora looks like a great companion!

My dogs are Sufi Mystics. The meditate a lot. They lie motionless for hours and can appear dead on command. They are very good at "observing" squirrels and birds. They chase them through mental imaging. I haven't seen one float off the ground yet, but I'm thinking about making a doggie bed of nails.

Keetha said...

Dora is amazing! I love Dora already.

Daryl said...

Remember that comic who had a dog who just sat there while the guy would stand and issue commands that the dog would ignore? Funny ... I think you had to be there ..

And when in Feb is your bday asks the Aquarian

Oh how sweet. She appears to be such a calm dog. and huggable, and loveable. What a keeper! What a friend.

QueenofPlanetHotflash said...

Dora looks so mellow. What a sweet face!

Alias Liz Jones said...

That's one hyper dog. Perhaps you should administer a mild sedative. Bless her heart, she's just all over the place.

Camellia said...

I pull out my camera (but I do use a flash) and my dogs vanish into thin air.

here at Camellia Manor we are fools for dogs, and Dora just stole my heart.

Suz Broughton said...

I have a dog named George, too. I like it when dogs have "People" names. Dora is a good one.

Sassy said...

Dora is very cute...
ours is BIG and funny...he laughs in his sleep loud and deep...his name is HAKKO and is a full blooded American Bulldog and loves EVERYONE!!! He turns into a girl when he gets chicken and crys REAL TEARS...SUCH A PANTY WAIST HE IS!!!

Country Girl said...

S T E L L A ! ! ! !

Love, George.

Country Girl said...

Actually, I think Dora is very demure.

Tonjia said...

oh yes! I have Frankie and Max. Max is a basset who has the keen talent to walk and sit and eat and sleep. and Frankie is overly talented. He can dance! LOLOL

Dora looks like a sweetheart. I would never have known that there was a storm outside when those pics were taken.

yeah squirt LOL

holly said...

lovely, lovely dog. i love seeing the dog contingent in blogland. they have so many cats to compete for space with.

Gina said...

I could kiss her.

noble pig said...

Oh she is so sweet! I love her! Dora like the Explorer?

She has the sweetest face.

Ummm, my hermit crab can lay in his hammock.

Egghead said...

Dora looks sweet....about the best talent around is being sweet. Lets see.....I have a hen who pecks my hand every morning when I try to gather the eggs underneath her. Does that count as a talented pet?

kim-d said...

Dora is beautiful...what a face she has! I love pets, and don't even wanna know where I'd be without mine.

When they look at you with those sweet eyes...pure unconditional love, and probably thinking "where's my food." :)
