Mr Dog

We have a Mr. Dog. 

Now, Mr. Dog is also called many other things, it all depends on the day and event....

Jasper (his real name)
Fluffy Butt (after bath)
Poopy Dog (when going potty)
Spunkmiester (when arriving home)
Poopsicle (when having to take him out in the cold)
Old Man (when he is slow pokin')
Sir Stinky (when he needs a  bath)
Nappy Dog (when he needs a hair cut)

The poor thing will actually answer to about anything after 13 years.....

I used to be able to take pictures of Mr. Dog so easily.  I swear he would stop and look pretty any time he saw a camera.

Houston we have a problem now... he is blind (and toothless but that's beside the point)
He does not see the camera.
So this is what it is like trying to get a cute pic...

First I have to get him out of bed.... he likes to sleep under the covers when it is cold...

Next I have to try to convince him I have a camera and get him to not act all camera shy....

Then we get this.....

Or this.....

Or this.....
FINALLY!!!


It will have to do.... Momma gives up.

PS  Please excuse his messy mop of a do right now.... it's just to cold to give him a bath.

He is soooo cute! I want a dog so badly. The hubs and I agreed once Avey is born and he gets back from Iraq we'll get one {so a year and a half from now.} I am already excited!

He is too cute! I've always wanted a Yorkie. I'm just waiting for the right time. Our family dog of 13 years died back last year. She had gone blind, and had fallen in the pool. We kept it barricaded, but on the particular day the wind was blowing pretty bad and had blow our barricades down. It's sad losing them. Glad yours is still doing well. We did get a few good laughs out of some of her blind moments. My Dad started calling her Stevie, as in Stevie Wonder. Cruel? I don't know...we thought it was funny :)
