A Giggle – Dogs in My Extended Family

So, one of the weird parts of being on Facebook is “friending” family members. (Yes, I was about the last person on the planet to join.) BUT, it kind of amuses me to be connected online with a couple of my cousin contemporaries. You see, there are four of us in my large Italian family that are essentially the same age. It’s kind of cool, I think. Anyway, I’m now connected with a cousin who moved from Colorado to Florida. I just laughed and laughed when I saw profile pictures of his dogs. Talk about extremes.


I’m sorry they are a little blurry. I grabbed them online. When I made them big enough to see, the image quality suffered. Still … you can get the big and the small idea of it.

Yep, a chihuahua and a great Dane.

This one had a caption about Tango being a “sea-going” chihuahua.

And, what’s more handsome than dear Gunner? (I wonder if he gets to go on the boat. Might get a little crowded.)


Anyway, I thought I’d share an extended family view so that you’d know for sure that being a dog girl probably runs in the family. Still … I doubt Tango or Gunner have their own biz cards.

I finally gave in to FB – not like I have the time. Grins.

Har – I STILL haven’t joined Facebook. I keep thinking about it, bit I’m reluctant to give myself more ways to waste time on-line.

Most of the therapy dogs we’ve seen at the hospitals lately have little biz cards they leave behind after a visit.

I think that Lilly might be the only dog on Earth with her own biz card. Very cool!
