{I live for puppy yawns.}

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend had it all wrong. Her dog totally is.

Chad snapped these shots of Doak and me last night when I got home from work. I was in a foul mood all day. Cantankerous. A grumpalous, as my dad would say. I don’t know who put a bee in my bonnet (in fact, I only had to work a half day) but let’s just blame it on A Case of the Mondays. Blech.

When you walk in the door from one of those awful days, the I’ve-never-been-more-excited-to-see-you greeting from your four-legged friend is the best mood lifter, right?You’d never tell from these pictures that just hours earlier I was a crotchety nightmare. I love him so.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”

    What a sweet pup! Now, I must ask – what are your thoughts on sunglasses? Are these not-to-be-messed-with real deals, or can you live with Walmart frames? :)

    You have such great taste in style. I’ve never been thrift shopping before but if it’s as good as you say I might have to give it a try one of these days.

    Completely agree! Love the name Doak–I have a little Frenchie named Tally (probably for similar reasons as Doak) that makes everyday better!

    I couldn’t agree more. My day instantly gets better when I’m greeted at the door by my tail-wagging, always happy to see me dog Ellie. Nothing beats the love of a dog! And Doak seems like such a sweetie.

    Doak is so cute! I love the therapy dogs give us. I have had my dog for a year, and I’ve never been happier!

    Your shoes are super cute – love the look.

    What a cutie! (both of you :)) What kind of dog is he? Looks like there’s some poodle in there but maybe some golden too?

    Cantankerous. :) I’m glad Doak is giving you those warm fuzzies. Lately, my dogs are making me NEED therapy.
