A dogs life?

This layout came together very slowly today. I took these pics of Ansie, William and the new puppy/baby when we were down in Cape Town at the beginning of February. Ansie has 4 boys and now she has a "forever baby". Scrat the Yorkie wants to be a baby and is very needy.

While we are on the subject of dogs and dog humour I thought I will let you have a little giggle!
How Many Dogs Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb?


Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a burned out bulb?
Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.
Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp! (for you MEL!)
Rottweiler: Make me!
Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.
Lab: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Please, please, please!
German Shepherd: I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, checked to make sure I haven't missed any, and made just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.
Jack Russell Terrier: I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.
Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb!
Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.
Greyhound: It isn't moving. Who cares?
Australian Shepherd: First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle...
Poodle: I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.
A Pledge for Dogs


I will not play tug-of-war with dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.
The garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.
I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.
I will not roll my toys behind the refrigerator.
I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.
I will not eat the cats' food - before or after they eat it.
I will stop trying to find the few remaining pieces of carpet in the house when I am about to throw up.
I will not throw up in the car.
I will not roll on dead sea gulls, fish, crabs, etc.
"Kitty box crunchies" are not food.
The diaper pail is not a cookie jar.
I will not wake mommy up by sticking my cold, wet nose on her bottom end.
I will not chew my human's toothbrush and not tell them.
I will not chew crayons or pens, especially not the red ones, or my humans will think that I'm hemorrhaging.
When in the car, I will not insist on having the window rolled down when it's raining outside.
I will not drop soggy tennis balls in the underwear of someone who is sitting on the toilet.
We do not have a doorbell. I will not bark each time I hear one on the TV.
I will not steal my mommy's underwear and dance all over the backyard with it.
The sofa is not a face towel... neither are mommy's and daddy's laps.
My head does not belong in the refrigerator.
I will not bite the officer's hand when he reaches in for my human's driver's license and car registration.
Smiles
xoxo
