Wigglebutt Wednesday 1

It’s our first Wigglebutt Wednesday at Joanie Tales. Yay!

It seems appropriate that our first Wigglebutt Wednesday happens to fall on the day before Valentine’s Day and the day after the 2019 Westminster Dog Show.

[Sidenote: I’ll spare you how disappointed I am that a Wire Fox Terrier took Best in Show yet again, for the 15th time, when a bouviers des Flandres, a Havanese, and a longhaired Dachshund (breeds that have *never* won Best In Show at Westminster) were in the running. I was personally rooting for Bean, the Sussex Spaniel (his breed has taken Best in Show one time before, I believe, in 2009), but I would have been thrilled for a historic win by a different breed than had ever taken the Westminster crown before.  Anything but another Terrier. Geesh. Oh well. C’est la vie.]

Anyhoo, today’s post falls between our culture’s celebration of canines and its celebration of love. How fitting.

Wigglebutt Wednesdays and The Friday Funny

As you know, I’ve only just started blogging again after several years away.

Quite frankly, I’d forgotten how much goes into creating and maintaining an active site, let alone how much it takes for my creative process to dump itself onto a page.

I am also, admittedly, out of writing shape; I become winded quite easily these days (*she pants after writing the first three sentences*).  😉

But I’m committed.

So, to make blogging easier, especially since I’m out of shape and not as fast as I used to be (oh boy, is that ever a topic for another day!), I got to thinking about assigning themes or categories to specific days of the week (like many already do on FaceBook, other social media, and in blogs).

Pictures of the Joanie Tales Characters (in part)

Here’s a photo collage of some of the characters you’ll hear about in Joanie Tales.  Merlin is our fawn-colored mutt with a black muzzle; Pinot is our yellow Lab who’s fox red with a liver-colored nose;  Fred, not ours but DTS’s rescue, is small, white, and fluffy (but huge in heart!); Chessie is our chocolate Lab with golden brown eyes;  and Tuc is our black Lab with chocolate brown eyes. The two old-fart humans on the middle right of the collage are me (in the white shirt) and DH (with a white goatee). At the collage’s bottom right corner you’ll find Tuc giving me sloppy Lab kisses.   There ya go!  Now you have faces with names — all the better to enjoy Joanie Tales with.

 

Until next time,

Joanie
