Wednesday Captions

Dark storm clouds blanketed us in shade and a tiny bit of cold rain fell. We were very quiet outside.


Bella: I don’t know what I’m thinkin’ but I’m thinkin’.


Chloe: Hmmm… Sniff, nibble, sniff, nibble. Bunnies were here.


Bella: Da bunnies were here, too, C-C-Chloe!


Chloe: What?! Stop calling me while I’m treating myself to bunny poop or I will come kiss you. Bwaa ha ha ha.


Oooo.... Me thinks I’m g-g-gonna get yelled at.


Don’t purchase dog toys.


“Mean Kitty” plush toy: $9.99.
Brown paper shopping bag: $0, Priceless


Mother walks in: “Ewww. Who manufactured the gas cloud?”
Guilty Bella opens eyes: “She did.”

Female Ruby-Throated Hummingback


Eeeeks. A ghost. Scary, ey?

Mary- I loved this one! Who needs Chet Baker? Your girls are sooo expressive.
The dogs having a blast with paper bag makes me think of little kids having more fun with the boxes than the presents.
That last picture of your reflection reminds me a bit of the Phantom of the Opera- the musical version with that studly hotty Gerard Butler! Ooohh I love that movie- think I'll dig up the DVD this weekend...

(Grrrrr--I had a comment all typed then realized I was in another name--I am webmaster for our church & was doing some work on that. . .forgot to change.)
OK--every time I see the photos of your girls (and of Chet Baker) I get the urge to drive down to Stewartstown & get a pup. I do check the website to see what's available.
But I am not sure my 1/2 border collie would handle that. She is even jealous of the cats!

I do love your dogs! Chloe is so regal looking with her gray muzzle. Bbbb Bella seems to be the instigator of the two? They just seem so clean all the time. Maybe I need to get me some bostons. Excuse me while I go pick up yet another wet furball.

Love when you post photos of Bella & Chloe and also theirs dialogs! It's so funny! Love the turtle on the stone, too!

Dorothy said...

Hey Mary, love the doggies tonight.
They are just so cute....bunny poop eaters that they be. LOL
That paper bag antic is too funny.
They are so sweet.

Hope you are feeling better today!
Oh..and that is one great ghost shot Miss Mary! ;o)

LOL, your puppies can really put on a show for us! Just keep it coming!

Cathy said...

I heard someone chuckling out loud and it was me - a real from the diaphragm Chloe-and-Bella-induced- out-loud-laugh.

If there were a Caption Writing Emmy - you'd get my nomination.

Mary! Thank you. I'm just about to hand the laptop over to my hubby.

NatureWoman said...

I love your photos and captions Mary! I love your dogs! Hummingback - that's good! And nope, I wasn't scared over seeing your reflection!

Mary said...

Hey all,

Please forgive me for being delinquent with blog reading lately. It's been very, very busy this week! I'm am feeling better, too.

I *will* catch up with all of you very soon!

RuthieJ said...

Mary, those little B&W girls are so cute! Their fur looks so sleek and shiny. Do they mind if you diddle with their ears?

But what is it with dogs eating poop? Mine are the same way only with cat and deer poop (TMI, sorry!)

Thanks for sharing...those pix made my day!

Susan Gets Native said...

You slay me.

'I don’t know what I’m thinkin’ but I’m thinkin’. Good, sweet Bella.
I love your dogs.

Alyssa said...

Mary, Your little girls are so precious. I can see why you love them so much - they have such expressive faces and do cute things. And I'll bet they are good friends and company. I wanted to ask if they shed very much. They seem so much like pugs, but our little ones shed like mad!

What a really fun post - I particularly like the ghost at the very end.

She looks pretty friendly - not scary at all.

Thanks alot,

thailandchani said...

Great dog pictures.. but that hardwood floor with the rug really got me! The inside of your house must be stunning! :)

Maybe some pictures one day? :)



entoto said...

I loves me the ghosty shot! And your girls are wonderful.

Jayne said...

Your girls are tooo cute Mary! And I love the "ghost" photo... who is that????? Hmmmmm.....

nina at Nature Remains. said...

Cool self-portrait! And I'm jealous of all your luck with pictures of hummingbirds and (hummingbacks). I'll have to stake out the feeder and see if I can get ONE!

Mary said...

Alyssa, Bostons are a very clean breed. The don't smell like dogs at all unless they spend a lot of time outside then they will smell sweaty for a minutes after they are indoors. They are also good for people with allergies because they don't have an undercoat. They're low shedding and always smell sweet.

Mary, you know I am a bigggg advocate of the BT but I really think you ought to dig up those pictures of the Delaware house when you came home to a snow storm in July. Bella and Chloe had demolished pillows I believe. LOLOL. To hear you and Julie these dogs are without flaw hahaha and we all know that is not ALWAYS the case! Loved the pictures of the girls, Possumlady is right Chloe is looking very regal these days and dear Bella is just too cute no matter how much empty air is between those ears! Thanks for sharing.

Q said...

Dear Mary,
Glad you had a few drops of rain and at least some clouds.
The doggies are so cute.
I can tell they love you.
I have been feeling like a ghost myself for a couple of months.
Glad you are feeling better.

Mary - your "pups" are so entertaining. I love what you did with scripting their "thoughts." Looks like Bella and Chloe are a lot of fun to have around. Pets are such sweet company, and can be comforting when we feel down, and can be expressive in others ways when we are at our best. That must be why I have so many cats and dogs around me! :)

Unknown said...

So adorable! I love your ghost shot! We should all have some double-paned window self-portraits! Maybe that can be your next project! :)

Naturegirl said...

This post was too cute and hillarious and being a pet owner I truly enjoyed this.The bags or boxes is what my felines prefer to toys! hugs NG

Mark said...

Did you sort out where the gas cloud came from.....

Deb said...

Such a cute post. What adorable dogs Bella & Chloe are.

Anonymous said...

Mary, please write a book about you and your girls! The three of you are something else.

Annie in Austin said...

Now these bunny-sniffing girls are so funny that the laughing had to loosen up your locked jaw, right Mary?
Your leather sofa looks a lot like ours, too - but no pups on mine.


Larry said...

Funny captions and expressive dogs-I'm starting to worry-The dogs remind me of myself when I'm walking around my yard.

Mary said...

Larry - LOL! I can relate to that!

LauraHinNJ said...

Too much, Mary! Love the self-portrait, too.

Susie said...

What a great dog toy! Isn't it funny how they can have the most fun with the simplest of household things!!

Beth said...

I REALLY like the ghost photo....
