Dogs on Thursday

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.
Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."
~Groucho Marx

Welcome to a quiet week at Dogs on Thursday!
Other than the abundant storms that have plagued our area it has been a quiet week.
I hope everyone is fairing well and surviving through these turbulent summer storms, hurricanes, fires and even the earthquake in the west and the sweltering heat that seems to hang on like a fly stuck to honey.
Elise and I have been hanging out in the air conditioning during the hot part of the day, getting caught up on our summer reading and enjoying our peaceful quiet time until the kids come home from their vacation. Elise likes to be read to, but falls asleep a lot!
(I hope it is not the sound of my voice. Haha!)

For those that are in the DoT's Dog Days Of Summer Secret Swap
I hope you are having a fun time.
Lets try and get the boxes out in the mail by August 15th.
If you have any questions or troubles please contact me or Natalie.

Go check out Nichole's Blog for a great review of a dog friendly bag and a fun new contest she is having!

Don't forget the DoT's Bloggerversary Contest runs until September 10th;
Create a Representation of Your Dog(s)!
This can be achieved in any creative form, such as painting, drawing, quilt, poem, knitting, crochet, sculpture, etc... The ideas are endless and so use your imagination to your wildest extent!
There will be two categories for the prizes.
Category A: A representation using Fiber (ie, fabric, yarn, unspun wool, cotton, yarn/fabric dyeing, etc...
Category B: A representation not using Fiber (ie, painting, drawing, writing, clay, wood, metal, etc..)

Charli loves it when I read to her. She falls asleep every time. Your little Elise looks so sweet. I hope you have a wonderful week.

I keep forgetting about the representation contest until I read it every Thursday. That would give me a fun opportunity to pull the acrylic paints and brushes out of the closet again!

I'm adding my English Mastiff to Dogs on Thursday. I love Gaylen's pictures of her hounds, and she inspired me to finally list my youngest, hairiest child here.
