Dogs and a Cat

I scanned in some photos from 1984 today. This one is Lynn's dog, Dio.

Jumping back to the present, here is Charlie with some friends at the dog park. He has a pink ball and is playing keep-away, his favorite game.

Charlie continues to defeat my efforts to keep him in a harness in the car. I got him a red one that is supposed supposed to be escape-proof, and he got it off before I even drove one block. 

Here’s an AI-generated beagle. I’ll bet it doesn’t take its clothes off in the car.

In other news, the kitty from across the street came back to our deck and sat there for a minute before running off. Charlie was looking through the window, very interested.


  1. Charlie in the car has a look in his eye that says: "You can't put one over on me, Mom" but the woofie in the AI version looks as if butter wouldn't melt in his mouth (mol).

  2. Hello,
    Charlie is an escape artist, fast than Houdini. I like the dog park photo, they are having fun. Cute doggies.
    Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy day and great new week. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

  3. You will need a budget for new restraints for Charlie.

  4. ...good to see that they aren't fighting like dogs and cats.

  5. Glad to see the dog park play. It's hard to capture the little guys on the ruN!

  6. Charlie is persistent in not wearing a harness. Nice dog park where the dogs can run and play.

  7. Charlie is a Houdini. I wonder what kitty thinks of him.

  8. Adorable dogs and what a cute cat sitting so still and proud to be the one chosen kitty!
