GG READER DOG TIME (!!!!) Hoorayyyy! Welcome to the sixth installment of the best blog post idea I’ve ever had! (Thankfully, because I AM VERY SICK OF SALES POSTS MY BRAIN IS MELTINGGGG. ?)
If you missed it, a few months back on instagram stories, I asked you to submit your dog’s photo with a funny caption so I could turn it into a blog post–I got 100+ submissions, and here we are with an ongoing series!
Seeing pictures of your dogs brings so much sunshine to my day, and I know these good boys and girls will bring a smile to YOUR face, too!
(Please note, these photos are posted in the order they were received! Also, my cat people–don’t dismay–we will be taking cat submissions once we get through all of the dogs! New submissions are currently closed but will open up again soon!)
GG Reader Dogs, Vol. 6
This is my little tri corgi – Socrates (Socs for short!) He loves going on long walks with his best friend, Ernie, and playing with our socks — who knew his name would be so fitting?
BUDDY FROM PORTLAND, OR
Here is my 5 month old labradoodle, Buddy! We live in Portland, Oregon where his habits include getting extremely muddy, chasing birds on the beach and sitting with me at a brewery or coffee shop. He was named after Buddy the Elf since he was a Christmas Puppy; he loves peanut butter, squeaky toys and playing with cats.
LULU PICKLES FROM CHICAGO
This is Lulu Pickles. She is a 4 year old Bernese mountain dog living in Chicago. We live in Lincoln park and our neighbors call her the mayor of Wrightwood because she greets everyone who comes her way. She’s super stubborn and if she doesn’t want to go inside she will lay on her back and refuse to move. She prefers to do this when it is negative degrees out. And since she weighs 108 pounds – you’re kind of stuck.
When she went to doggy daycare for the first time I was crazy and checked on her on the live streaming video. I noticed she was standing by the door and not playing. Then when I checked again she wasn’t anywhere to be found. So I called the place and they said my huge dog was too timid with the big/medium dogs so they put her with the puppies in another room and she was much more comfortable. ?
HURLEY FROM GRAND RAPIDS, MI
Also responds to: Hurdles, Hurdle-ooo, Herkelsheim, Hurdey Gurdey and Buttercup
Breed: Shiba Inu
Age: 12 years young
From: Grand Rapids, MI
Interests: being petted (he will gently poke you in the shin with his paw until you give him the scratchy scratchy), naps on the porch, climbing in the fireplace and sitting in ash, bread, naps on his mother’s bed (which he’s not allowed on), eating books (he’s gotta get that education somehow, and I haven’t taught him to read yet)
Special skills: woofing at intruders, locking himself in closets, diving into snowbanks and pulling out hidden treasures – honorable mentions include a Crunchwrap, a ham and Swiss sandwich, goose poop, and half a bag of flamin’ hot Cheetos.
Dislikes: water falling from the sky, intruders, “cat people”
LUCY FROM MARYLAND
This pupper is Autumn! She’s a Lab/Greyhound mix and is 1.5 years old! She is very good at “shake” and “wave” and even more exceptional at getting stuck under the coffee table. Autumn resides with her mom and dad and best friend, Luna the cat (spoiler: Luna hates Autumn). In her free time, she enjoys connecting with other puppers on Instagram: @adventuresofautumnivy
Also this kind of sounds like a dating profile for my dog… ??♀️
COOPER & MURPHY FROM CHICAGO
DALLAS GUZMAN FROM AUSTIN
This is a Dallas Guzman from Austin, TX. She is a nearly 6-year-old Border Collie-mix rescue. We adopted her as a puppy because she fooled us into thinking she was calm. She loves squirrels, chocolate chip cookies (she doesn’t get the risk), and stealing grilled cheese sandwiches (just once, but had the time of her life).
True facts: a fence cannot contain her. My husband once found her sitting in our furniture out in the front patio like a human. Our neighbors often find her in their yard or in their house due to their doggie doors. I think she keeps going back because they love it. So, she requires supervised yard time, but as you can see, even supervision won’t stop her from saying hi to her friend.
