Reader Champions and more!

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

G.K. here!  I have to hand it to the Frenchies - while most of the time I think them to be quite silly, they do come up with clever ideas.  I have enjoyed seeing all of our Daily Wag friends out there and wanted to take the time to note a few fellow dog show champions, like me, in addition to showing the rest of our reader submissions!

Thanks to everyone for sending us your photos and hope you all had a Happy New Year!

  • Hello G.K.,
    Are you letting the girls have a vacation? Your show circuit friends look quite proud. I love seeing all our Daily Wag friends still. Chloe, I think you are going to get yourself into trouble with a name that rhymns with our Miss Mischief Zoe. You are already taking lessons from her via the blog.How big will you get Chloe? If you are just a pup---look out food bills Chloe's Mom. hehehehe!!! I hope everyone had a great New Year's. Mom is just getting out of her sick mode and now I can rest a bit from the nurse thing. I kept her warm and stayed right beside her while she rested. Dad and my people brother are off ice fishing for a few days, so Mom and I can lounge and start her back working gradually. Bailey wasn't it, weren't you going to join us blogging, the new Frenchie in town. Daisey, I saw your photo and you and I look a lot alike. I think you are a Tiger Brindle Frenchie. My muzzle is starting to gray also.Everyone, thanks for sending us your photos. It is so much fun. Rebel and Dudley I am still waiting to see you. Have a great day all and Happy New Year!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • wow..another fine looking group of doggies..Chloe..you look just like Sasha down the road..she comes up to the farm/ranch on occassion and spies on critters..Dudley where is your photo..2012..can not believe it..hope it is a good year for all of you my dog buddies...I just took some of my meds and I feel bit tired so off to bed for me..over and out, Cora-belle p.s. Lucinda is back to her old self..thank goodness i did not have to loan her my vest..

  • Happy New Year GK, Francesca and Sharkey

    You received my picture, the bike ride was fun. Next, coming soon is Chinese New Year on 23 and 24 of January and I am not looking forward to it at all. The whole town will be shooting fireworks and firing 5ft long fire crackers for 2 weeks! I am afraid and could only hide under my mom's bed..
    Be happy and God bless!!!. Sparkle

  • Good Morning G.K.

    Your poodle friends sure do have some silly hair styles, reminds me of Don King :)

    So I see my little Cloe isn't such an angel after all, good job on chewing the wrapping paper ;) I'm not happy with her one bit yesterday she got a rabbit and I won't depress you with the details.

    Well there is no sign of Christmas at our house, all the decorations are down, lights out front taken down and things are back to normal. Yesterday mom went into a kitchen cabinet and was greeted by 2 live stink bugs - FREAK OUT- she went into cleaning mode and spent the entire day taking everything out of the cabinets, wiping them down inside and out, I sat and watched. We have a really big kitchen it took her all day - crazy woman.

    Basil I'm glad to hear your mom is feeling better and thank you again for the e-cards that was very nice.

  • Good morning son,
    It was nice to see you had a cream chow in with your pictures today. Onion? Wonder how that name came about. Onion looks very proud in the holiday outfit.
    Chloe, I think you will have a lot of time outs in your future. hehehehehe Basil, I am so glad that your mom is feeling better. You must have done a great job of being her caretaker. You and Cora-Belle both did a good job of getting your humans back to good health. Sparkle, tell your mom to turn your tv or radio up louder so it blocks out some of the sound from the fireworks, it might help you a little bit.
    Well Glue Squad, let's kick this new year off right.
    Let's all try to be good. OK, I know, we have Zoe and now Chloe so let's start out small. Try it for one day. Z & C, you can do it. I know you can.
    It seems like everyone, people and pets, is starting the new year in good health. That is good, Let's try to keep it that way.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Nice to hear from you GK. Loved those pictures you posted today. It looks as if “show dogs” have lots of friends and have a lot of fun too. I’ll be really glad when the new year celebration is over. Every night someone set’s off fireworks. As they say, “You can run but you can’t hide.” That’s the way I feel about the fireworks. I might mention here that it’s against the law here, but who obeys the laws now days? Some are so big that the whole house shakes just like thunder does. Now that’s a little on the extreme side. Chinese New Year coming??? Here we go again. Where are my earplugs?
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • What lovely looking doggies...WOW a white Chow! gorgeous...I love Finnegan's clan, especially the cats. Onion is a Hoot, and Chloe is beautiful! Honestly all the rest are just adorable pooches :)

    Mommie delia says I'm too fat and lazy from all the holiday food..she want me to go outside, but it's too cold..9 degrees..too cold outside to play.

  • Good Morning F&S,
    Hope everyone had a Happy New Year! Love the pics that were posted today. My trainer Lila has a dog that looks just like Dare and Finnegan. I get to play with her when I am there.
    Yes I did get a rabbit this weekened, but on my defense I have a toy that looks just like it. Mom thought it was dead and went out with a shovel to pick it up and it took off. I had to laugh at the look on mom's face and I thought she may have peed her pants. LOL
    Also, I was a little jealous at Zoe. Friday night she got to play Yahtzee with mom and aunt ann. I was stuck home but I heard mom say they had a lot of fun.
    Maybe when I'm finished my training classes I will be able to go play. Mom did tell me that Sophia will probably be the only nice one to me. But we will see. Well off into the yard, have some hunting to do. Did I mention we have 4 beavers out on the lake????? LOL
    Have a great day everyone.

    Chloe xx

  • Hey G.K.!
    Looks like you have a bunch of swell pals! Are the girls napping? I have been....We were at a big party on New Years Eve. The people were playing a game and laughing soooo LOUD, that I couldn't sleep. Mimi was happy that no one fed me any treats, whatever...
    I think Mimi & Papa are still out of sorts today.
    Hey, Basil, I had 3 pics in the Glue Squad holiday post. Check me out!
    Happy New year everybody!
    Your pal,
    Rebel
