Andrea of This Pug Life said, "She reminds me of that infamous cupcake dog in the first pic. :)"
I had forgotten about "that infamous cupcake dog," until I googled it and found this:
I'd planned to share a different cute video - of a baby elephant trying to wake a sleeping dog - but it's not on YouTube, and Blogger will only let me share videos that I have on my machine, or from YouTube. So... if you want to see a cute vid of a very persistent elephant and a VERY sleepy dog, click here.
So cute at the end when the elephant grabs the dog's feet with it's trunk! I do the same with Rita when I'm trying to get her up. (Well, except I gently tug at her feet with my hands, not my nose.)
And if you have time for one more video... stop by This Pug Life and find out what an unhappy pug sounds like. Wow. Hollywood should use these guys for the soundtrack for horror films! The screams! The weird noises!
One other non-video related thing...
Today I'm being interviewed on the Chick Lit Central blog. Melissa had some fun questions like, "What is the easiest thing about writing a dog as a character? Most challenging?"; "If you could choose one of your books to be turned into a movie, which would you pick and who would you cast in the lead roles?" and "Since you and your dog enjoy reading together, what is your dog's favorite book?" And... there's a giveaway you can enter to win a print or ecopy of Rescue Me, Maybe!
|The proof that Rita & I enjoy reading together...|
BTW... I'm trying out a new font. It looks HUGE in "compose" mode, but okay when I preview it. What do y'all think? Easier to read than the old smaller font?
Don't give your dog any cupcakes, and have a Happy Mirth Watch Thursday!
Oh, the elephant video is very cute. That's one sleepy pooch. And Indy was disturbed by those pug noises. The chicken in the elephant video should could care less about.ReplyDelete
Rita is about that hard to wake up too!Delete
I had to turn the sound way down on the pugs so Rita wouldn't be disturbed.
I thought the dog was dead at first, who could just lay there with the elephant trumpeting in your ear? LOLReplyDelete
Love the font, and congrats on the interview which reminds me to get my butt in gear!!
Rest assured that I will NEVER share a video of a dead dog here! :)Delete
The font doesn't look all that different to me here in "published" mode. It looks HUGE in "compose" mode. Weird.
Having been awakened at 5:30 this morning by Mr Reggie, it is beyond my wildest dreams to think about a pup that I would have to nudge to get up! Love it! And my old eyes like the new font.ReplyDelete
It's Rita's best quality that she likes to sleep in!Delete
Your font looks fine. And OMD! I've never seen the cupcake dog! HILARIOUS!!! I have cupcakes in the kitchen (the downside of kids who work at Panera), but I don't think I'll try that with Flash and Patches.ReplyDelete
Oh, that is a downside - dangerous!!Delete
No cupcakes at my house, much to the dogs' disappointment!
None here either. Much to MY disappointment!Delete
Drats we are a cupcake free zone....so cruel. Have a tremendous Thursday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
Cruel indeed! (But probably less cruel than waving a plate of them in your face...)Delete
I'd never seen Stains before...he's greatReplyDelete
I'm so glad to introduce new folks to Stains!Delete
OMD, I've never seen the cupcake dog before! SO funny and yet I feel so bad for him! And the dog with the elephant... so funny that the dog just will NOT get up, but mostly I was impressed how sweet they both seemed. The dog was so patient and tolerant, and the elephant was so gentle.ReplyDelete
Really great interview! And wow, that's some cast you've got for What the Dog Ate!
My sis is seeing a friend this weekend who works as a casting director in Hollywood. She's bringing her a copy of What the Dog Ate! :) A girl can dream...Delete
!!!! I see a meeting with a screenwriter in your future ;). Yes, a girl CAN dream!Delete
I like the font. I am old and have old eyed so bigger font is always better. Great video too.ReplyDelete
They DO both have the same expression. Too funny!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog Jackie! I will definitely check out your books. LOVE the pictures of the dogs on your header!!ReplyDelete
That is one really tired dog in the video with the elephant. :)
That is the first we had heard of the cupcake dog! Thanks for sharing the video so we could catch up! Poor pup going through life with the name stains!ReplyDelete
Great videos :-) Love the new font!ReplyDelete
I love the frown on Rita's face, it's like she is really following the words on the pages. I often wonder what dogs think when we sit and look at things they would prefer to chew.ReplyDelete
I remember Stain! He was all over the interwebs a few years ago and Rita definitely looks just like him.ReplyDelete
The video of the baby elephant trying to wake the dog made my night. Thanks for sharing.
I never saw the cupcake dog before either...poor guy! I have a recipe for "pupcakes" that I might try for the next birthday!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed reading your interview!
