Dogs Beat Blues

Any time I’m feeling down or just need a little something to brighten my day I turn to one of two things, ice cream or dog-shaming (maybe both).

I think I find dog-shaming so funny because I can actually visualize the dog in the act.  Plus by just looking at a dog’s face you know if the dog realizes he/she did something naughty.  Other animals (especially stupid cats) just don’t have those shameful faces.  Here are just a few of my favorites.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Must Love Dogs

Benny at the local dog park; he loves to swim!

We were so happy to host some Madison friends this past week for an overnight on their move out west.  The added bonus was that they brought their amazing puppy with them. This dog is Benny’s mini-me, same expressions and mannerisms, just half the size.

I’ve had Benny since he was just 7 weeks old and I can’t imagine my life without him, he is my child.  I love that Benny sleeps until we force him to go outside in the morning, he loves to swim but still refuses to jump off the dock, and he is perfect every time we complete the 12 hour drive back to Wisconsin.  I will never understand how anyone could not love dogs.

We didn’t want our visitors to leave.
