This and That and Throwback and Thursday

(Read the title in a Daffy Duck voice. Trust me).

Today I am joining two blog hops.

Because I want to and I don’t think there are any rules against that.

Even if there are, rules are meant to be broken. 😉

First up, This ‘N That Thursday hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Ruckus the Eskie. Check out either blog for more info on the hop.

I have a question for you pet owners. Do you guys ever look at your dog or cat or other pet and ask, “Could you get any cuter?”
I’m sure you do, especially when they’re doing something extra sweet or extra cute. You know, right before they do something not so sweet or not so cute. 😉

I ask Petal this question all the time. One morning I got an answer.

One morning I asked myself, ’cause Petal was sick of trying to explain, “Could she get any cuter?” then I stuck her little toy on her head and realized…

Now for Throwback Thursday! This blog hop is hosted by Dolly the Doxie and DOGThusiast. Check out either blog for more info on the hop.

Today we’re going to throwback to that time Lassie used me as a human chair.

February 2006.
Lassie was just little over a year old and I was coming up on my 15th birthday.

This was simply everyday life with that goofy boy. I was his chair and he was my pillow. It’s impossible to know who played their alternative role more often, me as chair or Lassie as pillow? We didn’t keep score.

How about we go forward a few months, to that time Lassie wanted to ride his motorcycle?

In actuality it was that time we discovered that Build-A-Bear hats and helmets fit collie heads very well!

Or how about that time that our family Great Dane, Tal, really wanted to play but Lassie just really wanted to eat the snow?

This photo is so over-exposed it blends right in with this post.
Yes, Tal was literally dragging Lassie through the snow by his mane. No, Lassie didn’t mind. Too much.
I can’t remember what year this was and I can’t be bothered to look, but it had to have been either late 2005 or early 2006 because Lassie is big and Ella was not a member of the family yet.

When Ella joined the family…


October 2006.

Lassie ignored this little black and white puppy for weeks until one day she curled up against him and he realized she was an okay puppy after all when used as a pillow.

To close I’ll leave you all with a link to one of my favorite Lassie posts:

  1. Hahah I love your intro. Thanks for linking up to TNT. Unfortunately TNT is coming to an end but next week there will be a new exciting hop to continue the theme “Thoughtless Thursday”! No rules there …just link on up. Feel free to double hop too because I just might do that too with some of my posts with TBT! :) Oh and yes, my sapiens do look at me at wonder the same thing….can I get any cuter? I always know when they do and that is my cue to act up and pull some mischievous stunts!

    • 😉 Thank you! That’s too bad about TNT, but this new theme sounds fun too! We’ll have to check it out next week.
      Hehe, yup! That’s when you know you could probably get away with mischief. 😉

    • Thank you. :) I’m finding it easier to look back at his pictures now, but that doesn’t stop me from crying, I don’t think it’ll ever get that easy. I miss that goof!

  2. Thanks so much for joining TNT! Love the pictures. They are so cute…all of them. It is so funny you said about the cute coming before the not so cute…lol. Can so relate.

    We have a new hop starting next week and I will have details on my blog tomorrow. I think you might like it. Stop by tomorrow and check it out. :)

    • Haha, it’s so true, isn’t it? It’s like they’re buttering us up for something naughty they have planned. 😉
      Thank you for stopping by! I swung by your blog to read about your new hop, sounds like it’s going to be fun! What a great idea. :)

  3. Cute photos, poor Petal, I have to endure such photos myself. Just read your story about Lassie, so sorry. Mom lost her first and beloved dog Trine over 10 years ago, but she still cries. She loves each of us so much and each has a special place in her heart and will never be forgotten.

    • Hehehe, Petal says she’s just glad she gets lots of treats for putting up with it, she also says she hopes you do too! 😉

      Thank you. It’s comforting to know your Mom still thinks of Trine, I’m so worried there will come a day when the memories will fade and be forgotten. I would hate for that to happen. I would much rather remember him and cry then not remember him.
      I bet Trine was a wonderful dog. <3
