Dog Display

We have been owned by four wonderful dogs in 32 years of marriage. Our walls are almost bare, but the wall between the breakfast bar and kitchen has had dog photos there for  27 years.
Bob's Pin Up wall over his workbench in garage. Dogs and Dale Earnhardt..
Max, Baby, Cooper and Jake each have a Tab at top of this blog. the first 3 are angels now and Jake is 12 plus years old. I paid 32.00 for the chalk sketch of Max in above collage way back in 1986. the rest are snapshots by Madsnapper. Did anyone notice there is no photo of ME on the garage wall?

Wow!! I have not seen this before! It is artfully done. Some of them I recognize. I am looking and looking, trying to see them better. So of course I see something or someone standing in the kitchen. What IS that? I can only see just a tiny edge of it. It looks like a dog in slippers....I'm convinced you put that in there as a mystery.

Ginny Hartzler said...

Yes, it's a dog in slippers making your morning coffee. He is trained well. So until I hear different, that is what it is. Woof! And guess what I'll be dreaming about tonight...

As I was reading this post it struck me that like you I have cat photos and embroidery's on show but no photos of anyone else.
I often visit people with photos of loved ones and family draped all over the place but I have never been one for photos on show, ONLY OF CATS. LOL

I love the wall of precious dog pictures. Bob's workbench area is nice too - lol on your picture NOT being there! I hope that Jake is doing ok this morn and that he rested soundly.
John's area in the basement has lots of pics of our pets.
Hope you have a good day, Sandra.

Sweet....Love our fur babies for sure! Since I moved out of moms house I have had two babies all my own (37 yrs). My ex and I got Pepper from the pound. She was 15 when I had to have her put down. I went many years without a dog but then Dakota wormed his way into my heart! I have had him 10 yrs now. He is my best bud, my baby and my friend. Love my baby.

Wonderful! I always say our animals own us.

You are written on Bob's heart, so he doesn't need a picture!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh MS I love the wall of love... and how you have the photos framed and arranged.
Hugs Madi and mom

I just visited Cooper and Max...you sure do have a way of finding the most handsome/pretty pups. They are all so similar in colors too

Yes! The fancy coffee shop coffees are loaded with calories! Even the small ones. So if I get one, I have to give up something else that is equal. I drink three or four cups a day at home. I have one of those cheap little milk frothers. So I froth almond milk, it takes maybe 10 seconds. This makes a foamy latte with almost no calories. Starbucks has a new coffee drink this week, Midnight Mint. It looks amazing!! I will get one this week, but only have a few sips. I need a new rule...anything that is liquid does not count as calories, same as broken cookies.

I love this Sandra, and totally relate to it! When we packed up our home in Marquard in October last year, Rina took down almost two dozen photos of dogs and cats off our entertainment area walls. Imagine her surprise when she unpacked my boxes from West Africa (corca 2006!) and she found another 50 plus photos of cats and dogs from that era.

I love it that you have dog photos on the wall! I have one of Bridger, but need to get one of both Bridger and Misty for my wall. I think you should have a poster made of a photo of you and sneak it onto Bob's garage wall!

Ann Thompson said...

A dog wall is perfect. I need one. Wade has pictures hung in his tool box lid at work but none are of me

Lois said...

How sweet! We finally got some rain today and it was a lot. The frogs are very happy and so am I.

I LOVE the idea of a dog wall!

Karen said...

A great display of your pets! Now you need a wall of photos of Sandra!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love your display in the house and Bob's in the garage too!

Mevely317 said...

What a great idea!
I may never understand those who don't know what it's like to be owned by a dog. This reminds me of something S.A.R.K. wrote about God creating dogs and giving them his name (spelled backward).

Just Mags said...

Sweet Sandra I love the wall, you have it arranged so nice. You gave me a giggle about your picture not being on Bob's garage wall. Love and hugs for you and hugs and nose kisses for sweet Jake.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sorry, Sandra, but I didn't notice that your picutre was not there as i was too busy looking at the pets :-)

Not on Bob's wall, not on the kitchen wall. That might be a good thing if you think about dog words. Love the photos.
