National Dog Day

Jan suggested that anyone interested might want to post a picture of their dog today in honor of National Dog Day. This is my tree climbing dog Gypsy who wants so badly to catch a squirrel. Some of you may have seen these photos before but everyone seems to enjoy them.

That is amazing!

So cool! Too bad I didn't know about National Dog Day earlier. I would have posted about my dogs, too. One of them used to climb trees as well, until we moved to the city. Her tree climbing skills diminished greatly.

Gypsy looks awesome!

Happy National Dog Day!

Those are good Dot. It has been a long time since I hunted squirrel with a dog, but I remember some of those little muts who tried to climb up and get them. Pappy

I didn't know you had a dog. Great place for it to run around in the country, I reckon!

Great photos, Dot! I saw Jan photos and I will add a photo of my dog Flora today. Great idea! In Brazil the National Dog Day is in October 4th.

He is very talented :)

Mojo said...

Oh I am remiss! I did not realize this was National Dog Day. Tonka will be so upset that I didn't post the recent photo of him in "his" truck.

Bad Daddy!

Dot: Gypsy is cute but no matter how hard she jumps it won't happen.

Happy Ruby Tuesday and National Dog Day.

Craver Vii said...

Is he biting the tree? Oh, I see it better now. It's not the whole tree, just the bark, bark.

Hi Dot, I would like you come to see my dog Flora. Jan and you inspire me to did a post about my dog.

Jan said...

I've never seen a dog do that. Amazing.

P.s. I'm still using the same camera that Phillip got me last fall. I love it!

Happy Dog Day! Gypsy can sure jump a few feet off the ground. My dog also likes to bite trees.

Carletta said...

Gypsy is trying so hard!
Fun photos.

Ivar Ivrig said...

Have just scrolled down your blog. Beautiful :-) I'll be back :-)

Malyss said...

We have no national dog day in France, but I think it's a great idea to have a day for our beloved friends;
I don't remember having seen a dog climbing a tree...

The Birdlady said...

I came here from Fishing Guy's blog - (Well, he said it is a "must see" and he's right!) Your work is lovely, and Gypsy is great.

The Urban Buddha said...

Haha.. that is such great pics. Funny and amazing! :) Good job!
It is true that it would've been hard to redo all houses for the olympics. But for the people living there it brought quite a lot of bitterness seeing the houses 2 blocks away gettin done up while their own were real ramshackles.. Guess life is never fair tho..

Dot: I took your advice on the music, "Feed Jake" is up and running. I'm glad some of my friends visited you. Check out their great sights also.

Marie said...

Great photos of your jumping dog!

Travis said...

Great shot. I posted a photo of my dog too. That is an amazing site to see with your dog so far up on that tree.

diXymiss said...

Now that's a determined and eXuberant pup! Very fun shots.

Vacation is over and I'm trying to get back in the swing of things... ThanX for stopping by while I was away.

Tink *~*~* said...

Well, I had no idea that it was National Dog Day but I wanna know how that dog is able to climb a tree like that! I bet Pluto can't do that!

:D

He is so cute. We had a dog, PeeWee, when our boys were growing up that could climb a ladder.
(I have a picture somewhere..)
Nice picture, it makes me smile.

Max-e said...

Your dog certainly looks determined. I had a black labrador many years ago that would climb trees, with some encouragement from me. If I climbed the tree she would be up like a shot just to be with me.

I just wanted you to know that we'll be posting our favorite blogs about National Dog Day on the site and yours will be one of them! Thank you for spreading the word!
