Great Scott! Devoted Pup

We are back!

As we mentioned in our brief post last week, we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus as Gilligan’s humans (who happen to include your faithful author) have been away gettied married and going on honeymoon.

Gilligan spent some time with several excellent sitters, and we will bring you some glimpses into his time there in the lap of wiener luxury, but first…

A tale of Dog Loyalty from Bonnie ScotlandIMG_9166

One tale from Edinburgh, Scotland that is sure to thrill you dog-lovers out there, is that of Greyfriars Bobby.

Bobby was a Skye Terrier who lived in the 19th century. Legend has it that when Bobby’s owner passed away, leaving him behind, he spent the rest of his 14 years of life sitting in front of his owner’s grave and guarding it. Locals who passed by the grave on their way to and from the nearby pub came to know and love Bobby, and they would feed him bits of food when they saw him.

Then one day, Bobby passed away peacefully by the side of his owner’s grave.

Eventually, this tavern was named after the renowned canine, and a statue erected in his honor.

Just a “wee bit” of Scottish lore for you today for Black and White Sunday! Stay tuned for many more stories of the adventures our hero Gilligan and his humans have been getting into.

A Ween Afoot!

Gilligan loves feet! In honor of his foot fetish, today’s black and white photos bring you a firsthand (firstfoot?) glimpse into the ensuing cuteness when Weens is “afoot.” Enjoy!

Ok, so he was a little camera shy for this one…

And this one just has feet in the background… but clearly Gilligan is comfortable with the arrangement. 😉

Happy Sunday!

Puglet – New Arrival!

20140806_161835Gilligan has mixed feelings about his spotlight being stolen for today's post, but we just couldn't resist sharing with you these photos of a new arrival: a sweet 8-week-old baby pug! She just arrived at a dear friend's house this weekend, and doesn't even have a name yet!

Look. At. That. FACE!
IMG_5587
Note the size of the hand for scale. She is super tiny, about the size of a guinea pig!
IMG_5594
It wasn’t long into this series of photos before she got sleepy and started cozying up into her new mama’s arms. Is this a lethal dose of cuteness or what?

She may be a great deal less sophisticated than our oblong hero, but we hope you’ll agree she’s pretty darn precious. We hope to bring you more soon once we arrange an in-person introduction between the two!

Happy Sunday! 🙂

Cover Your Wiener

Gilligan just loves snuggling into and around the covers, whether it be those of his own bed, or of the human bed (as depicted here).

He also loves to leave himself “partially exposed” so he can look up at his Mama or Papa with this adorable peekaboo face.

A New Swan Lake

Happy Black and White Sunday!

Gilly is pictured here with his new Plush harness, during his first time at a park near Mimi’s house. Can you guess what color the harness is from this black and white photo?

There were swans and geese on the water, just like at the river at the park near his home (as we’ve shown you in a prior post).

Sugarplum Sausage

With the rest of the family getting ready for the holidays and rocking out to Christmas jingle jams, Gilligan decides to “supervise” from a more comfortable vantage point. Lucky for him, dozing on the job is fully acceptable.
