corner view: four-legged

The dog barks backward without getting up.
I can remember when [she] was a pup
— Robert Frost



What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight; 
it's the size of the fight in the dog.
— 
Dwight D. Eisenhower



I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. 
For me they are the role model for being alive.
— 
Gilda Radner



I am his Highness' dog at Kew;
Pray tell me, sir, whose dog are you?
—Alexander Pope



Let Hercules himself do what he may,
The cat will mew and dog will have [her] day.
—William Shakespeare

Ooh I love to cuddle with a pup any day. He is a beautiful pup and by the looks a very spoiled one too. smile. xo

A dog can also have a peaceful nap or the "rest of the warrior" (as we say in French). I love the 3d one, so warm. Thanks for visiting my blog!

He's a very elegant dog! And look at his curly tale!
I enjoyed your captions

Actually the "king" in these photos is really a "queen." I've changed the gender in the quotes accordingly, hoping the poets and philosophers will forgive me, as I know the Queen (alias Lady, alias Ladybug) would NOT : )

such an elegant bearing ...

Jodi said...

Adorable! I wish I could hold him--or her. Have you ever read any Elizabeth Goudge novels? The way she writes about dogs is so touching. They become characters in their own right, not just pets.

Wow, this is a beautiful breed. I like especially the third picture that is so sweet.

Loree said...

Very beautiful one! A real Lady with a noble side-face! Would love to know what kind of breed she is?

Francesca said...

You know how much I love your Lady! I don't know which photo is my favorite---probably the one with her asleep on your husband's lap. But that regal pose is particularly wonderful also. I guess they each show a side to her, huh?
The quotes are great match-ups. You had to do some work on this post! My favorite one is that "it's not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog." So true--in humans too.
I was looking forward to your post because I figured you'd match up with Francesca and that meant pictures of my favorite dog.:) And you didn't disappoint me.
