Gone to the Dogs

Well truly, it’s about time a few dogs got themselves back on this blog.  Little character infused kittens seem to have been taking over recently.  So, we’ll give you some pics from the Vereeniging & Districts Kennel Club open show.  They kindly agreed to me having a table to raise funds for the shelters. 

Fund raising was, well, a rather dismal affair but it’s hard not to have fun at an open show.  We didn’t get in any money but we did get to run around, taking photos of blog friend look-a-likes and we got a whole lot of our new brochures out.  Let’s hope that the kind souls who now have them, choose to fill in the all important debit order form.  Anyone out there, reading this to see if their dog made the blog, your generosity could make all the difference to the less fortunate pups out there.  Even the smallest monthly donation helps and, if you truly have no spare cents at the end of a month, then flea market items (those bits and bobs creating clutter in your house) are always very much appreciated.

Right then, enough bribery and on to some look-a-likes and general cuteness.

Being an Open Show meant is was, yes, you guessed it, open – to all breeds and, even better, ages.  That meant we got to see both puppies and child handlers.  Who can resist cute kids and puppies?  So, first up, 2 adorable and beautiful children with their equally adorable and cute puppies

And not to forget our friends.  This one is for Raffles 

Raffles look a like

And Misaki.  Well, fine, it’s not a Malamute but a Husky is pretty darned close


And Mollie.  Yes, again, not really a Mollie dog but close, at least in colouring

Oh and, guess what, we even found an Easy impersonator.  Just look into those eyes and tell me there’s not trouble coming.

Easy impersonator, you can see the naughty in the eyes

Then a bunch of cute little Grey Hound puppies, just to add to the cuteness factor

And how could we do a post without having some nudity involved.  A Chinese Crested is always good for and this pic will have to be dedicated to Doggy, not only because he rather likes posts with nudity but also because he insists that he wants to steal Pixels from me but would have to shave her.  Thought I’d let you see what a nude animal might look like.

Plus a Collie for our Meadow friends

And, not to forget our lovely Litchi Love.  We at least managed to find a dog that shows her what she was supposed to look like, even if she failed.


So, even if the fund raising didn’t go as well as others, we had a wonderful day out.  Not the best set of photos but certainly fun taking them.

Who do you think is the best Look-A-Like?

  1. Those little Lab puppies are adorable! That has to be what our Scout looking like when he was a puppy! And those grey hound puppies are precious! Love all the photos. All of the dogs are beautiful!

    Sorry to hear the fund raiser didn’t go as well as you hoped. Those are some great photos.

    Hello Susan, Thanks so much for the beautiful pictures of my daugters with their Lab puppies. They are so in love with their puppies and have so much fun with them. Regards Tracy

    • Hi Tracy, it was an absolute pleasure. They really are all (both puppies and daughters) utterly beautiful. PS – In order to raise funds, I run flea market tables and am always looking for items to sell. I can truly sell almost anything so, if you find yourself de-cluttering your house and wish to get get rid of anything, I will gladly take it off your hands. Anything from books to costume jewelry, toys, ornaments, truly anything. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Another way in which you could help would be to allow me to put a “goods donation” box at your offices. Any animal food, cleaning material and shelter staff care items (eg coffee, tea, sugar, etc) are always needed. Please let me know if you, or any of your contacts, are able to help in any way. Thank you so very much.

    Hi, I will definately keep all items from now on and hand them over to you with the greatest of pleasure. I will let you know as soon as I have a box for you to collect. All the best.
    Regards Tracy.

  5. Cute Puppies 🙂 … hmm I know that wolf looking girl 😉 She looks alike to misaki.

    Sorry about the fund raiser, Aunty Susan

  6. My # choice is Raffles, followed by the greyhound pups. Thanks too for following my blog! It was delightful to find that out! And awww, all your pics sure are good. I commend you for trying to help the dogs and cats. I’m right there with you in spirit! 🙂

  7. Congrats Blengowrie & good on YOU. You are dedicated and, I imagine, to the animals you truly would be what they would recognise to be an Angel. Imagine how we see an Angel capable to help us in ways we cannot ourselves – you are an Angel to them.

    That puppy, those blue eyes, so so so unforgiveable to not care for his life.

  8. What great photos. Love what you’re doing.
