What is better than being able to capture special moments in photographs? Sharing those photos with our friends! That is the idea behind the “8 Photos of Happiness” tag. These are the rules for this game of “tag”:
- Thank your nominators and link to them. We were nominated by our friends Hawk at browndogcbr, and Dolly from Dolly the Doxie. Thank you both for thinking of us!
- Link to the creator, Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet.
- Post your 8 photos of happiness: they can be anything that represents a moment, object, place, or feeling that makes you happy.
- Give a brief description of the photo, why you chose it, or let the photo do the talking!
- Spread the happiness and tag up to 10 other bloggers.
Wow, it was tough to pick out 8 photos, there is so much that makes us happy around here, and I am also trying not to repeat photos I have shown before (no guarantees there!):
These last two photos are very special to me, my hubby emailed them to me when I was at the BlogPaws conference. I had been gone from home for 5 days when overwhelming homesickness came over me. I called my hubby, almost in tears, and asked him to please send some photos of the kids! These are two of my favorites that he sent:
A lot of bloggers have already been tagged, but I tried to find a few of my favorites that I don’t think have been. If you already have, I apologize for missing it! 🙂
- Travels with Barley
- Let’s Go Dog
- K9’s Over Coffee
- Brian’s Home
- The Island Cats
- One Spoiled Cat
- The Hailey Chronicles
Love all of these photos, especially the first one! It looks like you need a bigger bed! I don’t know how I’m ever going to choose mine, but thanks for the nomination!
Makes you wonder where the humans sleep, doesn’t it? LOL
There are some gorgeous smiles and wagging tails there!
I think my favourite is the one of the paddling pool – probably because I would like to join in!
All the photos made me smile.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
You picked some really great happy photos.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Such sweet photos – you’re captions were spot-on – especially about a wet Golden Retriever! I guess my fav would be all of them sleeping together. Love to see dogs cuddled up close.
Hailey and Zaphod says
Thanks for sharing your happiness with us! We will be doing our happy post for Wednesday (the Lady’s migraine is winning!)

SO hard to choose just 8 isn’t it? I love your choices though x

I thought this would be an easy and quick post, but I spent so much time looking through photos, it really wasn’t! And don’t you hate when you’re looking for a certain photo you remember, and can’t find it? I thought I would never find the one of Cricket waiting for the ball!
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says
LOL I know exactly what you mean!
Pam and Sam says
Thanks for including us! We will have our “HAPPY” photos on our blog this week!!!
Yay, can’t wait to see them!
What great photos!
Dolly the Doxie says
Great choices! We had to use some photos over again so I really enjoyed seeing yours for the first time. I love the closeup one of Cricket. I am also sorry to hear how homesick you were at BlogPaws, how sweet of your hubby to send you pictures. Love Dolly
😀 😀 😀
The Island Cats says
You really captured happiness with those pictures! We love the one of Cricket smiling. 🙂 Thanks for tagging us. We’ll hafta work on this one!
You’re welcome…I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
Auntie Sheryl says
I love all the pics…the ones Tom took are great. I was getting home sick about the same time that we were there!
I’m trying to remember, did you have Alex send you some pictures too?
Yes, Alex sent lots of Benji pics. It helped a lot.
Tenacious Little Terrier says
I get horribly homesick without Mr. N too! Love the ball playing picture!
We saw a mom deer with her two fawns at gramma’s house yesterday, such a pretty sight! You all look very happy, and I bet the reunion after BlogPaws was pretty happy!
Oh yes, it definitely was!!
Thanks for posting these. They really made us all smile. Happy faces.
Jackie Bouchard says
Great pics! Nothing like a smiling dog to make me smile too!
Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
Aw, these pix are all great!! I adore the first one where they are all on the bed together! Now that Ducky’s a little older, a bit more secure, and a lot less reactive to Shadow, our three get along much better than they did even a year ago. (There was never a question of Callie & Shadow getting along; but Ducky has always added an interesting and challenging dimension to our lives.)
We’ve had some issues with Luke and Cricket too, but nothing that got out of control, thank goodness. Luke seems to back down from her now, I think he’s learned, and that’s a relief.
It’s much nicer when everyone gets along, isn’t it?
Caren Gittleman says
I think your choices were excellent! I know looking at them made ME smile!
Brian Frum says
Those were great happy photos and we sure enjoyed them! Hey, thanks for tagging us. We have our blogs done for this week but we will look forward to playing the next week!
Wonderful! Can’t wait to see your photos!
