Entitled "American Doxic," this doxie painting by artist Terry Pond is the doxie version of Grant Wood's "American Gothic," which I've always loved.
I like this one better.

Here's a pic of a red, smooth-coat trio. Aren't they beautiful?
When I was growing up, we had several red smooth "ladies," all of whom I loved dearly. One named Elia, whom we adopted when my dad was stationed in Germany, became my fun companion. She even allowed me to dress her up in baby clothes! Once, I dressed her with a baby cap that tied underneath her chin, wrapped her in a baby blanket, and placed her in my doll baby carriage.
While taking her on a walk, two elderly ladies asked to see my "doll." When they looked down into my doll carriage, they were astounded to see my Elia lying there on her back, quite content to allow me to push her around our Army base residential area.

Okay . . . maybe I tricked you somewhat--but I thought this "banana" was just too cute not to share. And besides, our dachshunds have been known to go "bananas" over treats, meat grilling, pizza, roast--well, just about anything that smells like food!

My article below is published today in BINDINGS, my publisher's blog in THE CHRISTIAN POST magazine. The direct link is http://blogs.christianpost.com/bindings/in-a-blaze-of-glory-11860/
Golden yellow . . . burnt orange . . . flaming red . . . the fall of the year is literally a feast for the eyes as trees turn from various shades of green to all those bright hues that beckon us to the mountains, the woods, or even our own backyards.

I love dogs, especially my doxie Duke, for many reasons:
*they take things at face value
*they love their humans unconditionally
*they know how to enjoy life
*they enjoy the little things
*they ask so little in return
*they know when we are sad, upset, or not feeling well
*they want to be near their humans
*they are always available to give doggie kisses
Why do you love your dog?
