The Smokey and Nanny Show...


"His name is not wild dog anymore, but the first friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always." ~~Rudyard Kipling


"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace." ~~ Milan Kundera


"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." ~~ Unknown


"My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind; So flew'd, so sanded; their heads are hung With ears that sweep away the morning dew... "~~William Shakespeare, a MidsSummer Night's Dream


"I used to look at [my dog] Smokey and think, 'If you were a little smarter you could tell me what you were thinking,' and he'd look at me like he was saying, 'If you were a little smarter, I wouldn't have to.'" -~ Fred Jungclaus


"Tis sweet to hear the watch dog's honest bark Bay deep-mouthed welcome as we draw near home; 'tis sweet to know there is an eye will markOur coming and look brighter when we come."
~~Lord Byron


Dogs are miracles with paws. ~~Attributed to Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy

These are fabulous Pam! I love all the quotes - especially the one by Fred Jungclaus - how very true. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours! - I hope 2008 turns out to be everything you hoped it would.

Josie said...

Pam, you have the world's most wonderful dogs. I could do whole posts just about your dogs (and I have done...). Look at those goofy guys...!

Cheers,
Josie

I hope you don't mind my intrusion from HE's place...

But your blog is spectacular!

So filled with images...of dogs and Australia's beauty...

The dog pix are amazing, as are the quotes that go with them...there is nothing like dogs...

And a quick trip through your other posts, so laden with pix of the Great Barrier Reef and all...

Beautiful stuff...

Wonderful quotes and adorable, endearing photographs. I love the paw on the head, and that it stays there, and that the dog underneath seems to like it. What a crew!

Hi Pam, I just adore those photos. The last one looks like he's saying, "Alright, enough already!"

jmb said...

Gorgeous photos of your very special dogs Pam. I love the quotes too.
Have a very merry Christmas Pam.

Hey you, Happy, Happy.

That series told quite a story. Just loved the paw on the head maneuver and the expressions on the paw-headed dog's face. God, animals can make me laugh.

The Jungclaus quote rocked.
/nodding in agreement
So true!

Hope all is well with you and your loved ones. Seasons greetings and all that rot.

Great photos, great quotes. They inspired me to get up & hug my beloved Loki dog (and now he's looking grumpy and confused, because I had to wake him up to hug him).

Happy holidays to you!

I hope you had a great Christmas and keep posting!! You have a new and interested fan!!

Take care.

This was so charming!

Many of my best friends have been dogs. I cannot imagine life without them and they seem to know it because they begin to strain at their leashes a half-block away to get to me sooner.

Flip is never sure whether to be amused or jealous.
