Happy Monday, friends!
I’m heading home from Oregon today. (I spent the weekend with my family!) I’ve got a special treat to start your week off with a smile…GG READER DOGS!! Hooray!
If you missed the previous editions–welcome to the best blog post idea I’ve ever had.
Several 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 a brand new blog series!
Seeing pictures of your pups 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! New submissions are currently closed but will open up again soon!)
GG Reader Dogs Vol.9
Layla and Terrance
Maestro from Jersey City, NJ
Barkley from Pennsylvania
Meet Barkley, named after Saquon Barkley (I’m shocked my bf agreed to this, I’m a Penn State alum and he’s an Ohio State fan). Barkley was just rescued two weeks ago from a high kill shelter in Kentucky and is now living the good life in Pennsylvania.
Franklyn from Roscoe Village
This is Franklyn right after her last “blow out” at the groomer hahaha. I was laughing so hard when i picked her up. Franklyn’s a country girl, born in Wisconsin, but is embracing life in the city and lives with us in Roscoe Village. Franklyn keeps us laughing constantly with her unexplainable and bizarre fear of plastic bags, fire hydrants, curbs, speed bumps, card board boxes etc… She is OBSESSED with the tennis ball and can think of nothing else except the ball whenever it’s in sight. She’s also a big cuddler, and often beats us into bed at night, curled up on our pillows waiting for us to come snuggle her. She is the cutest dog in the world and we tell her that everyday!️
Cassie from Atlanta, GA
This is Cassie, she’s a Bernese mountain dog rescue diva. She’s not allowed on the furniture, but I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and homegirl will be asleep on the couch. What can you do? She’s a smart dog.
This is my pup, Champ! If you ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you he’s my favorite thing to talk about! He’s a seven year old pit bull mix (this is him as a puppy) who has the same spots as Snoopy (they look the same from the back!), is a big ol’ softie, and hates taking selfies with me. He’s the best!
Kirk from Toronto, ON
Duke from Ohio
This is Duke, a chocolate merle labradoodle. He enjoys getting hand-fed spoonfuls of peanut butter and sunbathing on our deck. Duke also loves dinosaurs and will sit and watch any of the Jurassic Park movies. (He is still a puppy so this is a huge deal!)
Randle from Lewes, DE
This is our family dog Randle. He was my backseat buddy and he passed away unexpectedly two days ago (on Tuesday) even though my heart is broken.. I love seeing all the other readers’ dogs because dogs are the best, so please, please make this a thing! (RIP Randle! 😭What a sweet boy! Please join me in sending Randle’s owner virtual hugs and love!)
Hazel and Violet
Hazel and Violet were submitted without any background text and I just have SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. 🤣We need to know the back story behind these Corgis. If you are Hazel and Violet’s owner please DM me because Kendall and I are really on pins and needles here! 😂
