Dogs!

We received this Orvis catalog the other day, and I just had to scan these pages to share with you, my dog-loving friends. They're much too adorable not to be shared. :)

I'm melting from the cuteness! Plus, it's all for such a good cause. How great is that? &hearts

omg, i LOVE the Orvis dog catalog! seriously, i look forward to it every year! where is mine then? hmmmm. i'll have to check today's mail!

i should totally enter my Gussie! yes. he is good looking enough to be a "cover model"! oh, can mutts enter though? i don't know... eh, he is so handsome, he can hold his own, i thinks! :)

do they have all sorts of wonderful doggie quotes too? i saved this one, from years ago, and used it as my email sig for a long, long time b/c i ♥ so... i'll share, b/c i think you'll like it too!

Dogs in our lives.

We aren't house proud. If we were, we wouldn't abide the scratches on the door frame, the holes in the screen, the darkened shine of worn spots on the chair. We would wince at the mottled carpet and fret at the hair clinging to our clothes.

We don't. If anything, we lovers of dogs are a tolerant lot, finding greater value in the unabashed affection of our friends than in immaculate sofas. Shoes can be replaced, but heroic retrievers are timeless.

Without dogs, our houses are cold receptacles for things. Dogs make a fire warmer with their curled presence. They wake us, greet us, protect us, and ultimately carve a place in our hearts and our history. On reflection, our lives are often referenced in parts defined by the all-too-short lives of our dogs.

awwwwwwwwww, bet it'd make Ewan all teary eyed thinking of Sid! :):):)

speaking of dog messes - and since this seems as appropriate place as any - Rodney the Roomba did work well! he died :( and hasn't been replaced yet :( i think it depends on the kinda house you have... we have hardwood floors and it worked well. don't know how it does on carpeting, but, they probably have special ones for that too. and he did a valiant, no, heroic effort in keeping up with the dog fur. :)
Oh, thank you so much for the quote. That last line really gets me teared up. *dries eyes*

No, I didn't see any quotes in the catalog, but the pictures are outrageously adorable. Ack! I just want to pet and hug ALL of them! I hope you get your copy soon. Gussie the "cover model." LOL, I like it! I'm sure they're not all purebreds. My understanding is that they're just photos people sent in of their dogs - what is the chance that everyone has a purebred? Nah, I'm sure there are mutts too. :)

OMG, Rodney the Roomba. LOL! Now I simply must have one! Sadly, though, we have 98% carpet so I'm sure it wouldn't work. I was just telling Jorge (my hubby) about it, and he said we would have had to empty it every half hour with the amount of hair Breeze shed. Heee, he's probably not wrong cos she was a shedder.

I want more pictures of Ewan and Sid! Now that he's gone bicycle, though, he'll have to stick wee Sid in a basket on the handlebars like Toto. :D
Aren't they just the most adorable things?! I want to pet and cuddle all of them. Stat. :D

That is the cutest icon. Sweet little babies.
Me too! if only Keith wasn't so allergic! we went to a garden centre a while ago, the bigger ones have a pet store and we often go in, the last time we did that he really wanted to bring home one of the overly cute puppies, OMG! they were too cute for words.
We had a black Lab, Breeze, but we lost our darling girl in April. (You can see pictures of her, etc., if you click on the tag for Breeze.) Naturally, since we're on the mailing lists, we still get all the dog catalogs. That was extraordinarily painful for a while there, but we're doing a lot better now and can enjoy them again.
Awww, I love the one with the two white dogs nuzzling their heads up to each other *melts*
awwww those are too cute!!
i love that little furry puppy and the two fluffy white dogs. i'm a sucker for anything soft and fluffy!
I am too! That puppy is like a little puff ball. Sooooo cute. &hearts They all look so soft, I just long to run my hands through their fur.
This isn't my Breeze, but it looks a lot like she looked.

I can't remember, have you told me about your dog before? Do you have a picture? :)
