Dog of the Day: Zelda the Great Old Dane

Zelda is eleven! She gets around okay, which at her age is pretty great. And she drools a lot less than you might think.

Big yawn, curly tongue.

She looks like a good cuddler. As long as you have a giant California King bed.

Dog of the Day: B the St. Bernard

This is B. Not Bea, not Bee, just B. It’s not even short for anything. IT’S JUST B OKAY SHEESH LEAVE HER ALONE! Also she’s 3 years old and is a ‘miniature St. Bernard’. Which means that she is only the size of a very small pony.

B looks like she is remarkably free of drool. This was not the case in person, I (or at least my sweatpants) regret to inform you.

This is from my trip down the coast. Kinda pretty, innit?

Dog of the Day: Donovan the Irish Wolfhound

As you perhaps have guessed, I ran into Donovan at the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in San Francisco this year. He seemed to be enjoying them, all things considered.

It’s funny, I thought he was small for the breed, but he’s 150 lbs and the breed standard minimum is 120 and the maximum is around 180-ish.

Very tolerant. He didn’t seem to mind when his dad put this on his head. Which is more than you could’ve said about me.

Dog of the Day: Linus the Maltese Poodle Mix

Let’s play ‘where’s Linus’? (Male, 6 years old, happy-go-lucky, and named after Linus usitatissimum, the flax flower! Commonly used for coughs and as a lax– er. Yes, I guess there is such a thing as too much information.)

Autumn will adore this bag. Especially that little floppy flap thing that apparently holds it closed…

Oh my goodness THAT’S LINUS! (Who really loves chilling out inside the bag and traveling with mom.)

Dog of the Day: EEEEEEEEEE OJAI THE BABY HUSKY!

I have a little cold, so I need some fluff therapy. And oh my god is this fluff therapy. Ojai (girl, 2 months old) is named after the place that I wrote a blog post from recently, and is every bit as cute. So cute, in fact, that I am just going to shower you with a bunch of pictures, no captions or hovertext today.

Sunday Switchup: Pretty Sand

Just about the first pictures I ever took with a decent camera were of pretty patterns in sand. Unfortunately, they got lost in a move when I was in my teens. Ever since then, I have been trying to recreate them.

Caturday Supplement: Peace Meow

The local SPCA has so many cute little cat beds, like a zillion different kinds. This is one of the cuter ones.

The cat’s pretty adorable too.

Dog of the Day: Thor the Siberian Husky

For some reason, huskies seem to be named after Norse gods a lot more often than any other breed. I’m guessing it’s some combination of the ‘cold weather’ connection and the fact that they simply are that awesome.

Goofy-Looking Siberian Husky

Thor’s got attitude.

Several, actually!

Dog of the Day: Aiden the Poodle Labrador Retriever Cocker Spaniel Poodle

Yes! Aiden, also known as @dogonatrain, is a poodle/Labrador retriever/Cocker spaniel/poodle mix: yes, that’s a DOUBLE QUARTER POODLE! (One parent was a poodle/Lab, and the other was a Cocker spaniel/poodle.)

Aiden is a hugger and a leaner and a smoocher.

I thought maybe he was a parti-poodle, or a mix of one, but apparently the spots came from the Cocker grandparent.
