Anyway, you should also be friends with her on Facebook, cuz she's funny and she gives you ideas for things to post about on your blog! Like the other day when she posted this picture of this fine, tiny hat, and said she was going to put it on her duck Jimmy the next day.
And, as promised, here's Jimmy, looking quite dashing in the fine, tiny hat.
|Jimmy, the dashing duck|
|This picture makes me think of those Purple Hat Ladies.|
We barely paid attention to the rest of the game, because we were so excited to get home and put the tiny batting helmet on my mom's dog, Sugar. Sugar, as her name would imply, was the sweetest little beagle ever. But she had a very funny little pea-head, thus our excitement about putting the helmet on her head, as opposed to a selection of other beagles in the family at the time. (My stupid scanner wouldn't work, so I just took a picture of the picture, so not the best quality, but you get the idea.)
|Me & Sugar (I forgot I used to wear glasses!)|
I hunted for that photo - going through several old albums! (Luckily I'm anal and have my albums labeled by year, but I was only roughly guessing what year that was). After wasting a lot of time, I finally remembered that I love this photo so much, because it's such a funny memory for me, that I have it on the little shelf in front of my writing desk! D'oh!
And then I thought I'd share the dog-ified shelf of the desk where I do all my doggy-blog and doggy-novel writing. (I'm not great at the "pano" function on my phone yet...)

Ah, good memories. Do you have a fun, favorite memory of a family angel?
Thanks to Flea for letting me "borrow" her photos! Happy not-so-wordless Wednesday!
The little hat on Flea's duck and chicken is adorable. She is very funny. Miniatures are so much fun. I remember the little baseball batting helmets. Sugar Sugar looks sweet as can be modeling the little helmet.ReplyDelete
SUgar is just lovely wearing that hat... now if you could tell me where I could get such a thing...I would not mind wearing one. DId you see my tiny sailor's hat I wore for Halloween on my blog? That was made for cats and I got it on etsy! WOOF!ReplyDelete
Love all the photos - Thanks for sharing.
I was just thinking I've seen those photos before! Love your dog shelf.ReplyDelete
Those made us smile this morning. How cute. Have a wonderful Wednesday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
When I saw that purple hat on Flea's site, I thought for sure it was a feature from a photo blogging site. But it's a real hat! You just made my day.ReplyDelete
BTW, love your shelf of memories. I have them too, along with some dog sculptures, a dog lamp, and a hand crafted dog CD rack. :)
LOL poor Sugar. She didn't even get any ice cream!ReplyDelete
I love your memory shelf. :) We have books and our family clock with chew marks from our first cockatiel. Good memories. Sugar looks adorable in the batting hat!ReplyDelete
I got the tiny hat at a Civil War battle reenactment. I've gotten other tiny hats at the local party supply store. Tiny hats are in vogue at the moment, at least here in Oklahoma, where we're a little behind the times.
Sweet, cute and tiny!ReplyDelete
Oh, please don't give Ma any ideas...I hate hats, tiny or otherwise. Cute photo...Ma remembers getting ice cream in those little batting helmets!ReplyDelete
Love the duck and chicken wearing that fashion-forward hat. My favorite memory of that baseball sundae hat is that you sent the picture to Mom with a little note on the back that said, They all went to the Padres game and all I got was this stupid hat.ReplyDelete
I have tried to put a hat on Roxy, not so much. I have too many dog memories to even start. I like your shelf though.ReplyDelete
Good and precious memories of Sugar. What a great photo and that's good you're able to preserve the photo. Mom lost many photos for the past years ... cute little doggie stuffies. Lots of Golden Woofs, SugarReplyDelete
What a fun post! I thought that tiny hat photo stole the show the day Flea posted it on her blog :-) And I love Sugar in that helmet! when I'm working on the computer, just above eye level is a shelf with a carved wooden yellow lab angel dog. I like to think it's my Lucy :-)ReplyDelete
Love rereading Flea's blog and really get a kick out the the tiny hats on Jimmy! Very nice to meet you via the BlogHop!ReplyDelete
It's nice have wonderful memories. Love the photo of Sugar great hat.ReplyDelete
Love the expression on Sugar's face. It"s like dogs are trying to figure out if the home, food, bed, exercise partner, poop scooper, and general servants of their humans is worth the occasional humiliation.ReplyDelete
Ha! That sounds like something we would do. I remember those sundae bowls, too. We tried to get one from each team for a long time, or maybe that was just an excuse to get my grandparents to take us to Dairy Queen more often....ReplyDelete
The duck and chicken with the hat crack us up =)ReplyDelete
Flea is hilarious! I love how she put that hat on her duck! Ha! Sugar looked very cute sportin' the tiny hat as well. I just found your blog through Jan's Poodle and Dog Blog.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed Flea's purple hat photos too....she is so funny. How cool that it brought back that memory for you, and what a cute photo (Sugar does look pretty annoyed though...lol). I can't tell you how much time I've killed more than once looking through old photo albums for a certain photo! I love your shelf....I have that same picture frame as on the right, also full of pet photos!ReplyDelete
That hat is fantastic! I would love one just like it only bigger.ReplyDelete
funny tiny hats! Love flea and all her chickens and ducks that live in the city.ReplyDelete
Your post seriously made my day! Tiny hats on ducks are a must for joyful living.ReplyDelete
We saw that tiny hat, so cute! I'm mom's inspiration...I sit in her office in the front window most of the time when she is writing. She says it is hard to write if I am not there, but she also does a lot of writing in her head on our walks and then just types it out when we get home.ReplyDelete
Aw! Her duck is so cute! I did see the photo of the purple hat, but hadn't yet seen her hat models. And Sugar looks cute in her little hat too!ReplyDelete
Sugar is so cute in that tiny hat. I love your dog shelf! I can't wait to have a shelf like that when I move out next year :)ReplyDelete
Okay, first off, cute hat and hat pictures! Secondly, all I could think about after seeing Jimmy the duck in the hat was Beatrix Potter's story about Jemima Puddle-Duck!ReplyDelete
I love your writing desk area full of doggie stuff!! That must sure inspire you! That pic with Sugar is super cute!ReplyDelete
Wags to all,
Your pal Snoopy :)
