Tell me about your best friend . . . the two-legged and four-legged kind. πŸ˜‰

October Photo Challenge Day 15: YOUR NIGHT

To understand my October Photo Challenge entry for YOUR NIGHT, you have to understand my day. Saturday started with a Visiting Pet Program outing to see my friends at Colonial Oaks Living Center. I stayed true to our VPP motto–Bringing Love and Leaving Smiles–as I went from room to room to see the residents. I also visited with the staff, who needed a little cheering up after a sad week. There was no time for a nap when I got home, because my LSU Tigers had an important football game against the Auburn Tigers . . . or War Eagles . . . they can’t quite decide who they want to be. My Tigers found themselves in a slight scoring deficit early in the game, but I didn’t give up on them and they rallied to capture the win. It took a lot of effort on my part to get that victory for my team. I was tired, but I had one last social engagement for the day. Tallulah and I closed out the night by accompanying our humans on a little Magazine Street stroll to celebrate New Orleans’ Art for Arts’ Sake. We visited with artists, saw lots of costumed humans who were getting a jump-start on Halloween, and stopped into our favorite watering hole where our human mommy enjoyed the air conditioning, our human daddy caught up on college football scores, and Tallulah and I did what we usually do: attracted and reveled in attention. By the time we returned home, I was a bit exhausted. I curled up on my blanket on the couch, which is kind of a special treat for me, and I said goodbye to a busy day and hello to a relaxing night.

Tomorrow’s photo challenge is BEST FRIEND. I’m pretty sure you can guess who that’s going to be. πŸ™‚


October Photo Challenge Day 14: MUSIC

New Orleans is all about MUSIC. I wish you could join me on my morning walks. We hear every genre of music you could ever imagine coming from the passing cars, bicycles, and even pedestrians. Sometimes the neighborhood restaurants and bars forget to turn off their sound systems and we’re serenaded with the tunes that diners and revelers enjoyed the night before. But our favorite music comes from the students at ReNEW Cultural Arts Academy, who just happen to be our neighbors. They are the future of our city and the future of its soundtrack . . . and we love them.

Here’s hoping that you have a song in your heart every day. Do you have a favorite song or a favorite genre of music?


October Photo Challenge Day 13: LOCK SCREEN

This is the LOCK SCREEN on my human mommy/blogging assistant’s computer. Are you surprised that it’s a photo of me? πŸ˜‰ Mommy took this picture last winter. We’d had a series of rainy, miserable days. And then the sun made a grand appearance, so naturally we headed outside to enjoy it. This photo breaks all the rules when it comes to lighting, but Mommy loves it . . . almost as much as she loves me.

We’ve almost made it through a Friday the 13th friends. Hope it’s been a lucky one for you, and hope you get to do something you love this weekend. Cheers!


October Photo Challenge Day 12: DECORATIONS!

On Day 12 of the October Photo Challenge, it’s time for some Halloween DECORATIONS! Welcome to Ghost Manor, by far the most spooktacular house in my neighborhood. I did my photo shoot in the daytime because, quite frankly friends, Ghost Manor at night is just way too scary for this Golden girl. Ghosts fly from window to window. I can only imagine that they’re trying to escape . . . and I don’t want to be standing on the sidewalk if they get out. When the ghosts disappear to wherever they go, the skeletons start waltzing to and fro. And then dripping blood blocks the view. Time to turn your attention to the fog that fills the graveyard below . . . and hope no one pops out of the ground. If you’re feeling really brave, click here for a tiny nighttime glimpse.

Not scared yet? Really? Check out Ghost Manor on social media . . . and don’t say I didn’t warn you.

How many humans out there decorate for Halloween? And to all my fellow dog friends, do you get just a little spooked by creepy decorations on your daily walks? It’s ok to admit it. We’re all friends here. πŸ˜‰

 

 


October Photo Challenge Day 11: BLACK & WHITE

A note from Harper Lee’s Mommy: On Day 11 of the October Photo Challenge, Miss Harper Lee is taking a little snooze to recharge her batteries. I love snapping photos of Miss Lee when she sleeps. She’s so peaceful and angelic, especially when she crosses her sweet paws. And I love seeing her in BLACK & WHITE. As beautiful as a Golden Retriever’s coat is in color photos, there’s something about the detail that emerges in black and white that I find irresistible . . . just like Harper Lee.

I’ll let Miss Lee sleep a little longer, and then we’re off to find some fun decorations to share with you tomorrow!


October Photo Challenge Day 10: PHONE CASE

On Day 1 of the October Photo Challenge, I told you that Tallulah and I do not have cell phones. Something about problems with our credit, the possibility of sending inappropriate text messages, and an inability to control our online shopping habits. Which brings us to Day 10 of the October Photo Challenge and today’s assignment: PHONE CASE. Our human mommy does have a cell phone, but her case is quite sad. It used to sparkle like diamonds, but now it’s old and dull. (At this point, I could compare Mommy to her cell phone case, but I’d better not do that. She controls the treat distribution.) Anyway, I decided that it’s time to freshen Mommy’s cell phone look . . . and I happened to find the most perfect case. Just when you thought Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece couldn’t possibly be more spectacular, someone added a Golden Retriever to kick it up a notch. Now if I can just get my paws on Mommy’s credit card I’ll place my order. She’ll be so surprised!

So, humans, what kind of phone case do you have? And if you’re a dog, cat, pig, turtle, fish, or horse and you have you’re own cell phone, forget telling me about the case. I want to know how you talked the human into letting you have your own cell phone. πŸ˜‰
