The Gentle and Lovely Lacey ... (and Queen Pepa too!)

Consider this your bonus pup pic for the day! I've been taking care of this sweetheart for a couple of days while Fernymoss and his parents (she belongs to them) had to go out of state to attend a family funeral. We always just love having Lacey visit because she's so pleasant to have around and gets along famously with Pepa and Rolly ... they even seem to enjoy each other's company and there's never a snarl or snap to be heard, she's that delightful.

Admittedly, having a 100 pound barrel of wiggling red furry love barreling at you can be a bit intimidating sometimes, but her overall demeanor is so kind and loving you get over that really quickly! She's back home with Mom and Dad now and was overjoyed to see them return to get her tonight. Her visits are always too brief and we hate to see her go, but she'll be back again at some point ....

While on the subject of all things doggie, Olivia tipped me off a while back to a great photo blog by a great photographer named Anna Kuperberg, who specializes in (among other things) taking amazing portraits of dogs. If you need a (near) daily dose of puppy love, I highly encourage you to visit Slobberspace ... you'll be glad you did!

Slobberspace. Excellent name!

We used to have a 50-pound springer mix who would come barreling up to The Boy when he was like a year or two old, looking like he was going to just freight-train the kid, and then he'd stop right in front of The Boy. The Boy would laugh and hug him, and the dog was in heaven.

Check the space out, it's fun! I bet that was playing and tons of fun for the Spaniel. Rolly's mostly Brittany and perhaps collie mix, but is one of the sweetest dogs you could ever hope to meet. It's sad that he's failing so badly these days, because we've loved having him around all these years (he's 16+ now).
