When We're Smilin', When We're Smilin'

Butch and Snickers tagged us to show our smiling faces. That may not be as easy as it sounds because, being of a philosophical nature, I don't smile much anymore as I realize what this world is all about. But here we go:

This is me as a puppy. I think I see the start of a smile when I realized I had a home where people loved me and I could be myself. Notice those ears -- they've never been the same since. Here I am laughing raucously -- does that count? -- because the Cardinals won a game on TV. (They haven't done that much lately. Not many smiles in our house when they lose.) This is when Mom and Dad took me on a long trip to Northern Florida and we spent two nights at a B&B in Gainesville which loved dogs . This is before JH. Since he arrived, we haven't gone on any more long rides.

And finally, here I am whenever I do get to go for a ride, however short, with Dad (or Mom).

As for my brother, check back on When Harry Met Jake Part Two and you'll see one proud happy smile!!!

Now, who shall I tag? I think -- 'cause we want to make new friends -- the Red Dachsies, whom we met early on, but haven't seen much of since; and two of the dogs who came after us: Buddy, a Havanaise from Spring Hill, Florida, right across the state from us; and Kaya, a Great Dane from Australia,

Hope that's OK!!

Hey, nice laughing photo!!! Yes, the laughing ones count too. I Butchy don't smile too much either. Don't know why, I'm always happy. Just Harry does look like he is smiling even with his mouth closed. That's how I smile most of the time, hehehe.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

I think laughing definitely counts as smiling. And it made me smile too, bonus!

Neat photos. I don't smile much but I'm laughing inside most of the time! J x

Hey: the cards won last night! Does that count? Dad said he would appreciate a smaller point spread and more overall wins, whatever that means.

You will have to wait a couple of weeks for smiling pics of me, Buddy "The Dog" Hosp. My digital camera is still in the shop after an unfortunate incident between the camera strap and my back foot and going for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico (electronic cameras and water do not mix). My Mom used to live in Plantation Florida back in the late 80's, she lived on Pine Terrace from 1984 - 1988. I am leaving to go on a road trip to Virginia on Tuesday and will be gone about two weeks. Mom and Dad are going to a wedding and me and my sister Coopie are going for the ride!!! That's my motto, "Let's Ride". We are going to borrow a digital camera from Mom's sister to use at the wedding, so maybe we can get some pics of me on that camera. It was nice of you to contact me, it is always nice to meet my fellow canine Floridians. Buddy in Spring Hill, Florida

Those are some good grins, though I'm not so happy about the Cardinals one--they gave one of my teams their 10,000 loss! (Also I'm a Cubs fan.)

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey pals, I've tagged you for another game. It's hard though! See my blog for details...J x

Lorenza said...

Great smiles.
Thanks for sharing them.
Have a good night

Roxie, Sammy, Andy and Shermie said...

Love those smiles!! We posted ours but Roxie doesn't smile a lot. We used a cute puppy picture instead so you would smile!

(We been here reading but not always leaving comments. We will try to do better.)
