“WWED?” (What Would Eli Do?)

photo taken May 9, 2008 • title thanks to Ava

Ava, I cannot stop laughing at your entry.  I laughed when I saw it yesterday morning, I laughed when I read all the entries last night, laughed when I read over the new+saved ones this morning, and laughed again just now as I was narrowing them down.  LOVE IT.  Pure genius.  Hilarious.

Other fav’s:
Pointing the Way
Two step
Are you staying?
Toddlin’ and Ogglin’
A tot in tow.
Stumped by stumpy
Completely Puplexed
Wild and Beguiled
Pup, two, three, four…
Puzzled by the new muzzle
Confused, bemused, and a little amused
Shall we prance?
Her entrancing entrance.
Ears Looking At You, Kid

Of course I love all of you for entering, hopefully that goes without saying.

• • • I found an old folder.  In it, this photo from Chloe’s first day with us. She is so cute and confident!  And Charlie… Charlie was so perplexed; that first day he was actually worried this fat little puppy might hurt him.
They are so amazing together (then and now…)

Leave your title, caption, or thought-bubble-commentary in the comment section of this post and you’ll be in the running for a batch of petrified squid and a stunning arrowhead deftly made by MC this weekend with nothing but a bit of stone and the point of a deer antler.  And some beautiful feathers I found.  I can’t wait to see what you’ve got for this one!

    Not as part of the contest, but just as a comment: The photo is just like our Border Collie “supervising” our cat, who often has drool on his back from the dog looming over him. Not to worry. Generally the cat couldn’t care less about the dog. He is completely insolent and has an aura of, “You wouldn’t dare touch me.”

And you still have the little bull (which we haven’t seen). Is Daisy affectionate? Does she display any preference for her new surroundings and her new family?
