“I Gave Her A Foot And She Took Four.”

photo taken May 2008 • title thanks to E.Jolie

Apologies for the delay in posting the winner today ~ I had to go to the grocery store and the hardware store, which means if I leave before 9am, I’m back around noon…. that’s how it goes living in the country!

Add to that a very difficult decision here, as usual.  Such fun seeing the diversity of captions!  In the end, E. Jolie, yours sums up exactly what I interpret Charlie’s expression to be.  Congrats!

“This doesn’t taste like an elf leg…”
She had me at howl-o.
Wyoming Twister
“Chloe got your tounge?”
Who’s your puppy!!!
Chloe’s first toy
“Puppy Chow”
Love at first bite.
Yin and Yaannggghhhff!
Pirates! AAAR!
Coyote Snack-down
She’s got him under her tum…
The Lady is the Champ!

• • • Here’s another classic from the archives ~
Charlie and Chloe during her first week with us.

The juxtaposition of these two cracks me up.  It’s for you to name ~ leave your title, caption or commentary in the comment section of this post and you’re in the race for an antelope horn (click here for a past description) and a lucky horseshoe (I checked, it’s chock full of luck).

Good luck & Godspeed!

    P.S. I just love this photo: it has all the elements of the animal qualities we humans have forgotten: love of your own kind and acceptance the ones that are not quite like you, understanding towards the ones that are smaller and weaker than you…….

  340. Liz Says:
