I Am Sad and a Gotcha Day!

I is sad today furiends.
Well, grab a seat and I tells ya'll aaaaaaaall abouts it.

Ya'll sees, I had dis dream of entering Tucker's Dogya Contest but my dream is not to was smooshed like a bug when I realized dat I does nuttin alls.
Dats right, I does nuttin crazy or spontaneous...oh how borin' I is.

I has seen some fotos of ya'll in all these contortionistic poses and to tells ya'll da's quite disturbin'!
And I can't do no crazy poses!
I'm thinkin' it could be cuz of my short legs...though they be purty dang gorgeous if I do say so myself.

Dis is all I can do...sigh.

Yep, purty much da same heres.

And again....blah!

It's not just a blankie...I happens to be in theres.

But I can roll my eyes in da back of my head though.

Dis is called da Donut and I can do it purty well.

So, I was thinkin' dat maybes I can win on da sympathy vote  or maybe I can win cuz I looks so sweet and innocent I'm asleep when I am just laying around. Okays maybe not.

One dream bursted my reality...I thinks I'll go back to bed now and dream about what could haves been.

Also I wants to wish da most gorgeous Lola a Happy Gotcha Day!

I am so happy dat you founded da most perfect, lovin', furever home!
You and your family is very lucky to has found eachothers.
(Hehehehehe, I met you last year furs da furst time on your Gotcha Day through Mayzie)

Peace Out,
Puddles...da non-contortionist dog


Brian said...

Mollys Momma said...

Ohh Puddles you are the cutest little sleeper I have ever seen, I could just scoop you up and snuggle you forever, I think I will have to have a word with my two and see if they can run a sleepy/snoozy competition what do you think ?

Gloria said...

I think you look pretty cute sleeping. You and me would be adorable sleeping together! Love Billy

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

I'm so sorry you're sad, Puddles. It's not your fault that you conduct yourself with utmost dignity at all times. It must be in your breeding. Thank you so much for the Gotcha Day shout out. It kind of made my day!

Mango said...

Yeah, it stinks to be a dignified and never silly dog, doesn't it?


scotsmad said...

We like your 'sleeping dog with no head' pose!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bell

The doggy doughnut is good, too.

Anonymous said...

Hmm...that's still more contortionist than Riley. She never does any contortionist poses! For you, the sympathy vote it is!

We'll go check out Lola's blog and wish her a happy Gotcha Day. I gotta go...Stanley Steamer is coming in a few minutes. (And no, that is not my new boyfriend...hehehe)!

Elyse and Riley

Bobbi said...

Oh Puddles, don't be sad. You should win because you are funny! Just about everything you think or say is funny!! Well... almost everything. Puddles=winning.
Happy Gotcha Day to Lola!

We think the do-nut shood b an offishal category - that iz not sumthin'that comes real eazy doncha no? It takes at least 87 gazillion - secondz tu pawfect an'u du a quite magnificent do-nut; just look how tight the circle iz - just one continuous circle, can't tell where the b-ginnin'iz or the end - MOST PAWFECT!

Team Beaglebratz said...

Oh dear, we got so wound up (like a do-nut?) in your do-nut that we almost fergot to wish a HAPPY GOTCHA day to Lola - we will haf tu run over tu her blog. Thanks fer the pawz-up.

Sam and Pippen said...

Not everyone does the dogya so don't worry too much about it... with Pippen it's his oversized head that stops him from contortions!

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Minna Krebs said...

***** Wild Applause *****
Pawsome job doing da Donut! That is a difficult pose butt you do it so well. Good form, nice tuck of da paws and nose neatly positioned by tail!!

Minna Krebs said...

.....and you look just like Brudder Rooney in da Total Blanket Sandwich pose. (Some mornings my momma has to tap on da blankets to check if he is really there)

You looks like a Total Angel when you is sleeping. THAT is a good trick! Bwahaha

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Sweet and gorgeous Puddles, you are always a winner to us.

Happy Gotcha Day to Lola!!!!!!!!

We send our love to all of you.

jen said...

Don't be sad Puddles, we all need our beauty rest!

Remington said...

I think there should be "The Sweetest" contest and YOU would be the winner, my friend! Love the pics!

houndstooth said...

I think the Donut is a pretty classic move, and it's obvious that you are becoming one with your inner doxie as you meditate there! You're selling yourself short, Miss Puddles!


Peggy Frezon said...

Well i dunno Puddles, I'd vote for you anyway! Don't be sad!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

I love the photos of you sleeping Puddles!!! The quilts you were sleeping under caught my eye too!! I am a quilt lover you know??
Our Bambi is a very good girl too. She couldn't win or even enter that contest either!!

Anny said...

Madi and Mom said...

Morning Puddles...I'm finally here. Mom has a new routine now that she is retired. She is walking with Dad in the early we'll be checking in late.
Mom and I thought that pic of you and Albert 'discussing' things the other day was pretty funny. You were being bossy and you were good at it!!!
Hugs Madi

Barbara said...

I think they should have a "bossy" category, a "leader" category and a "sleeps real cute" category. You could win in any of those.

Thanks for telling us about Lola. We'll go wish her a happy G day!

ABBY said...

We fink yoo do da donut as gud as we kitties do!!! And yoo knows how flex-abull we r!
Happy Gotcha Day to sweetie Lola.


rottrover said...

Miss Puddles, we're not very flexible either. Not efuryone is, butt for sheer variety of sleeping poses you win paws-down!! We love the "head under blanket with butt hangin' out" pose. Very zen. Off to Lola's!

Happy Monday!

-Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

Asta said...

contowtionism isn't all it's cwacked up to be

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Funny. My mom never takes pictures of us sleeping. Something about how if we are napping she's going to use the precious time to "get something done" or take a nap. I don't understand what her problem is!

*kissey face*

road-dog-tales said...

Well, we would vote for the donut 'cause not everydoggy can do that one - at least not as good as you! Hmmm, maybe you should call it the do-knot 'cause you look like you're twisted tight as a knot :)

Mack said...

I think that One-Ear-Up move is BRILLIANT!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

You do a great donut-doga, Puddles. And you are just the sweetest pup when you are sleeping - your TRUE nature shines when you sleep - we all know THAT!!!

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Kitty+Coco said...

Don't sweat it Puddles, you doxies aren't made for contortion. Being sausage-tube shaped myself, I have found that I don't really have any good dogya poses either. Oh well. You rock the donut pose anyway!


Amber-Mae said...

You'll definitely get a sympathy vote from me! Happy Gotcha Day, Lola!

Benny and Lily said...

Happee Gotcha Day! Oh my goodness those pictures are hilarious
Benny & Lily

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Well now, Puddles, one cannot just be doing dogya nonstop, one has to rest so surely you can come up with a resting pose and I think the donut be a purty darned good one. I mean it werks the spine and relaxes the rest of you at the same time so it serves dubbull dooty.

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

I am running into the same problem for the contest, perhaps I will run a vote for which picture I enter. I like your picture for sure!

What Remains Now said...'re going to have to wait until someone has "The Cutest Doggie In The Whole World" contest. I loved the "donut" picture, but my friend at work almost passed out from the cuteness of your "sad look" photo. Well done.

Asta said...

I suwe hope you gots ovew being sad..i was wowwied about you all day.
I just can't imagine my fwiend Puddles being sad..go have a beew and some cheetos, I bet they'll help. If not let me know what I can give you that will cheew you up OK?

Lorenza said...

But sure your pictures are lovely!
Happy Gotcha Day to Lola!
Kisses and hugs

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Don't feel bad, Puddles, none of us can do yoga either. You're a good storyteller, so you do have a talent.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Woo are welkhomed to shop your head onto some of my Doga pikhs ;-)


Mr. Pip said...

Puddles? Is that you? I am still a little groggy from pain meds, but I thought I heard you say something about a donut. They have put me on a soft food diet - ugh. I have tried to convince my mom that cheeseburgers fall into this category, but she is not buying it.

Your pal, Pip

KB said...

Oh Puddles, I am sad thinking of you being sad. Isn't meditation part of yoga? When you lie there so purty with your eyes closed, you're meditating, right? So, you can enter!

Wyatt said...

You are just practicing the deep breathing and the meditating part, right?


kissa-bull said...

we fink that ish just cause you are such a classy lady puddles . we'd vote for you if the contest was for "most dignified and classy."

Jazzi said...

Oh Puddles

Jazzi and Addy

Anonymous said...

Tee Hee you definitely win the top prize for the Sleeping Beauty contest :D Hmmmm thinkin you could be sleepin a long time though...hard for princy poo to find you under all those covers! ;)


Hound Girl said...

Umm Puddles you sure are milking the sympathy arent you?! hahahah.

OMG I love the donut position!!!
You look like a scooby snack for Fred all balled up ready to eat :)

Roxy Ann LaRue said...

You do have some great poses, I am pretty sure I remember a pose of you jumping in your bed (or was it out) mid air...that was a great shot! and besides who cares you should win a contest on beauty alone. So no worries pubbles we give you a sweet heart award for just being there making our day everyday!

Barbara said...

Puddles - why aren't you entering my contest, huh? You hate toys or sumtin?

Junior and Orion said...

We think you should enter the "sleeping donut' pose.

The Teacher's Pets said...

The sleeping donut pose is a contortionistic pose if I ever saw one, Puddles, and I think you need to submit it to Tucker right away! And, by the way, you do a lot of crazy and spontaneous stuff all the time. Perhaps you should get into a yoga pose and meditate on THAT!
p.s.....Did you know that George the Lad had his first barkaholic therapy session with my "daughter" Dr. Daisy today?

Asta said...

Hi Puddles
Hope you'we feeling much bettews today
smoochie kisses

Alien said...

Now Minx, I happen to have several pictures on my space fridge of you dancing on bar tops and swinging from chandeliers. You can't fool me!


Anonymous said...

Puddles, you haves SOOOOOO many Most Amazing talents so you shouldn't be sad. No, not at all. For one, you might be THE cutest sleeper EVER! If it makes you feel any betters, I don't ever gets into weird pawsitions either. I thinks it's cuz I'm heavy and whenever I try to sleeps on my back, gravity takes over. Or maybe it's just that I'm part doxie or something.

Wiggles & WAgs,
