Cuteness


Ahhh, I needed this. You folks know what I weakness I have for these creatures. Look at the reaction of this little fella, a Golden Retriever puppy, at the news conference about his breed once again having the distinction of being the most popular dog in America for the eighteenth consecutive year.

Another news item: I just learned something about Barney, the Bush's infamous White House Scottish Terrior (Neesie and I are fans of his). I just heard that he recently bit a reporter. I can't give any further details about this, but if it's true, it looks like he's more on top of things than a lot of people. Just kidding (sort of). Hopefully, he'll enjoy his remaining years in Texas and he and his family will mostly be among people who love them.

Now, don't you feel better?

Yes, your sweet post definately made me feel better about the Bushes and the treatment they received!!! I pray they are blessed abundantly as they return to a somewhat normal life.

Now, how is that going to make our poor Fro feel, hearing you say that, Neesie?

Hope any who are interested in the arrival of the Bushes back in Texas go check out this video:

Way to go Barney! hehe
President Bush and Laura will go down in my book as the best.

Cute puppy!! Of course, I think almost ALL puppies are cute.

I look at the face of my new little beagle, and I just go ga-ga. I could eat her up!!

Too funny about Barney!

Blessings,

This just makes me smile. My in-laws had a golden retriever for years. I miss Windsor. He was good dog! And I love your comments about Barney. You're too cute.

Ella said...

Barney did indeed go at a reporter. He was probably defneding his own =)

Maxine said...

Thanks, Ella. All I can say is "good job, Barney!" He knows what's up.

An adorable picture Maxine.
I saw a tape of that reporter being bitten. He was warned but extended his hand anyway! I have to admit I smiled....

Sara said...

I absolutely LOVE golden retrievers!

Cathy said...

Very cute, Maxine ~
Greta posted about Barney biting the reporter. She said she did not think he did it and showed the video. I hope the little doggies and their owners will be happy in Texas.

Joy said...

I said Ahh, when I saw the puppy, then laughed when I saw what you wrote. Thank you for brightening my day.

Denise said...

There are a couple of reporters that I would like to bite! Have not heard this story but wonder what in the world caused that...... I am so glad that Presiden Bush is home and away from all this mess..... He and Laura deserve lots and lots of time just to rest.... Those 8 years really aged him.........

Have a great day and that is a great picture !

I want that puppy! I have wanted to get a dog for quite a while, but I am gone too long each day. The poor thing would be alone, and that's just not fair to the dog. So I need to wait until my schedule changes. thanks for the cute picture!

Yes, Barney was just defending his "parents." :-) I'm glad ALL of the Bushes will be able to spend some time relaxing now. I will miss reading and hearing about Barney!
