I Heart Hannah

This is a photo of my dog, Hannah, y’all. Like all Rottweilers, she is a big goof ball.  I was trying to take photo of these flowers from my back patio and she just had to get in the picture.

This week’s photo challenge on I Heart Faces is “pets.”

I Heart Faces is a photography sharing forum that focuses on the art of capturing faces and their various emotions. Each week, people from across the world enter their favorite face photos.

You Capture My Favorite Kiss

I’ve been trying to participate in a photo forum on Thursdays. Brought to us by I Should Be Folding Laundry (me too, by the way)  It’s called You Capture. Every week there is a new theme. This week’s was “KISSES.” This week she is having a special software giveaway, so head on over there and check it out!

I have several photos of kissing going on around here. I have wedding kisses, prom night kisses, new baby kisses, kids kissing, men kissing dogs and even a moment of passion over morning coffee, but this photo is my all time favorite! This is Hannah, trying to give a kiss to one of my little grand dogs, “Chewy Pooie.” Technically, I guess you could say these two are “kissing cousins!”

Complete and Utter Doggy Bliss

Have y’all ever wondered what complete and utter joy looks like? You have? Well this is your lucky day!

I give you Hannah, in the throws of absolute doggy bliss….

She had never seen snow before, and she wasn’t too sure she wanted to, at first.

It wasn’t long before she decided it was pretty cool and great fun to run in!

She ran around with the enthusiasm of a young puppy, and that’s saying a lot for this six year old rottweiler, who has bad hips.

She helped Dad measure the snow. Three and a half inches!

This is the look that says, “COME ON, ALREADY! QUIT TAKING PICTURES AND TAKE ME FOR A WALK!”

Can’t you just feel her excitement? She was literally kicking up her heels!

She was playing Peek-a-boo through the leaves…

…and then, “Just try and catch me!”

She tried a sneak attack on Dad…

…then ran around me like a banshee. This madness is commonly known as “the zoomies.” Rottweiler puppies are famous for doing this. Six year old females with arthritis…not so much.

I hope you got a smile or two from these pictures. Is there anything more goofy than a happy dog? Her joy was so contagious.  It’s one of the simple pleasures in my life.
