Dog Gone

In my experience, one of the fastest ways of losing a dog is to loan them the keys to the car. Right? (Please don't just look at me, say "right.")

We were just playing around yesterday. You know, one of those silly moments that just come over the group. My sister-in-law Mary Ann decides we need to get a picture of her dog Buddy driving my wife's convertible. She runs across the street to get the dog and of course the dog sunglasses (no, those are not people glasses pressed into service for the photo-- they are Buddy's driving glasses) and Voila' : your typical "dog driving car" shot.

Maybe it's the weather. A cool breeze blew threw yesterday. Let's hope it's the weather.

Here's some more "crazy" shot on other City Daily Photo blogs:

Mike -- Melbourne Daily Photo
Cool Cat -- Rabaul Daily Photo
Knotty gun -- Capetown Daily Photo

I couldn't find so many crazy shots to link to. Do you think we are taking ourselves too seriously?

Yes, I do take photography serious. LOL. Anyway, cute photo. It made me laugh. I went to another dog show today. It seems I've been going to those alot lately. So, in the next few days, guess what your going to be seeing on my blog?

What a fun picture! It's taken me a while to get back here -- haven't had much free time lately.

Thanks for your visit to my blog, too.

I just discovered your blog and am enjoying the photos. I miss going to New Orleans and haven't been in far too long. I grew up not too far in Mississippi and my parents took my brother and I on many weekend mini-vacations. My wife grew up in Gulfport and also went to New Orleans often. My brother now lives in Slidell and works out of New Orleans. My wife and I now live in Tallahassee, Florida and both of us miss visiting New Orleans. I tried on more than one occassion of getting a job with one of the television stations out there (I recently worked almost 10 years at a Tallahassee TV station) with no luck. My wife has a small chance of getting a job as a professor at a junior college on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and if that comes through we'll be able to visit the city once again. Plus I'll be able to go to Saints games again.

Anyway, I ramble.

I've added your blog to my blog's blogroll and plan on visiting your blog again soon.

He looks like he is in total control of the car! Nice shot!

Wanda said...

I would go for a ride with Buddy anyday...What a cutie!

Annie said...

He's a cool pooch. I read somewhere that dogs really should wear goggles when they hang out the windows of cars. I'm glad Buddy's human made sure he has some protection from the things that get blown up into eyes.

Marie said...

So funny! I did that with a rabbit long ago. He didn't mind posing for me either.

When he presses the horn of his car does it go 'beep beep' or 'woof woof'?

Excellent! What a great picture. He his a star - he definitely has the "it" factor. I saw a reality show recently about an agency (as in "agents" for movie stars) reprenting dogs. The owners were as crazy as the parents of those child stars.

Love the picture. I am also owned by an extra cute pug (aren't they all) named Rosie and 3 other adorable rescue dogs. I grew up in NO on Pratt Dr. and also lived on Catina but have been in Houston for over 20 years now. I miss the city.
