It's a Dog's Life

This is my dog, Molly.

I don't talk about Molly much, because her life isn't all that interesting. These past couple weeks, however, I've noticed that our lives have become strikingly similar. For example:

Molly is getting old, but she still likes to play. She just can't play quite as often or quite as long and she needs a little nap after a good romp.

Molly likes (needs, craves) attention and doesn't mind kissing up a little bit to get it.


Molly loves a nice sunbath.

Her favorite place to be is curled up against Tom.


She's loyal.

I'm loyal, too. (How's that for a segue?) I know this because my buddy The Scholastic Scribe herself awarded me this Loyal Friend and Visitor Award, and I couldn't be more pleased.


Purdy, ain't it?

I am fortunate enough to have many loyal friends and visitors (including the Scribe herself), so I would like to bestow this upon a few of them. (I usually hate this part because I'm always certain I'm leaving someone out, but this time it was easy - I looked over my last 10 posts and the following folks commented on 7 or more of them.)


Pick up your award, if you like, and pass it on to your most loyal friends and visitors!

And if you get a chance to have a nap in the sun today, be sure to think of Molly and I - it's likely that we'll be doing the same thing.

Congrats on your awards!

Well they say that you inflict your own personality into your dog. So that must be why you have similar traits! Your dog is precious.

My dog on the other hand, runs into walls, chases his own tail and is a complete nut and sadly, he's very stupid. So what does that say about me, his owner? Sigh!

I love the pictures. What a sweet Molly.

I'm like an old dog too.
I hardly ever have enough energy for a good romp.
That's what you said, right?

Now I lurve the word "romp," and I'll use it often.

Thanks for the love. You KNOW you're my fav.

Grand Pooba said...

Awwww, I love your pup! Mine is getting old too, he's got a white goatee now against his black fur coat. Breaks my heart.

I bet the only thing sweeter than Molly's little face is her dog kisses! You are blessed!

Vivienne said...

Molly is beautiful! I love the look on her face where she is kind of smiling in the sun.

This is the sweetest blog award post that I have ever read!! Just adorable.

The picture of your dog snuggling with your hubby made me want to toss our cats outside and get a dog. Cats are not loyal!!!

kyslp said...

I hope you had fun in the sun today. Congrats on your award!

I'm giving you one over at Stir-Fry, too. The post should be out tonight. (If I don't shut down the laptop and watch Grey's.)

(Just think we could have been sisters-in-law. I say "yes" to the margaritas anytime.)

I had no idea you had a dog. Molly is an absolute love.

And thank you so much for the Award! I'm so flattered. I always look forward to visiting your blog and reading and commenting on your posts.

Molly looks a whole lot brighter than my dog, who two nights ago, I shit you not, pooped in her sleep. That's my girl.

carma said...

what a sweet post about your Molly. There are few things in my book that beat a good nap.

And then the purdy award! I am thrilled to be receiving it. Thank you :D

Hope you'll be back to your zippy self again soon.
