Puppy Truths

These are the irrefutable truths of puppies in the rainy season.
1. Mud and poo are indistinguishable.


2. The dirtier the puppy, the more aerodynamic.


3. Clean is fleeting.


4. Towels are not for bathing; they are for playing.


5. Puppy adorableness always trumps puppy stinkiness


6. Pockets are for picking.


7. Resistance is futile.


8. And saying goodbye is so very hard to do.


Happy life, Cici! See you at the Reunion Picnic in May!

  1. Too much fun!! Your puppies trump my kittens right now, but give me a few months and I’ll be back with kitten truths.

  2. The look of terror? disgust? puppy overload? in the eyes of the adult dog in photo #8 are just too much! 😀 I’m dyin’ here! Poor pooch! LOL!

    1. That “poor pooch” is an 11-month old that we had to take out of the puppy yard because she was terrorizing the others! Overload is right. 🙂

  3. The best post of the year in the whole blogosphere so far.Unbeatable! ❤ ❤ ❤
    Thank you brigthening up our day with the cutest puppies there ever was.

  4. Love, Love, Love!!! Every time I see a picture of a Golden puppy my heart expands til it feels like it will explode! But until Shadow joins her sister at the Rainbow Bridge, there’s no way I could deal with a puppy in the house. And I’m not even sure I could handle a youngster then….getting too old and impatient to have another puppy.

  5. So much fun!! I love the look on Sassy’s face, “you’re telling me it’s coming home with us?” She will raise that puppy right!
