Friday's Top Ten

NOTICE: Something weird is going on with my Google Account. If I should go MIA, I'll be back ASAP. Not sure of the problem. Keep your fingers crossed for a happy outcome :)

= = = = =

I'm participating in D.L. Hammons' Deja Vu Blogfest. This is the first blogfest I've ever participated in, so I hope I'm playing by the rules.

Since Friday is Top Ten day, I looked back through old top tens and found an early one that didn't receive any comments.

This post is from Friday, May 15, 2009.

Happy Friday!

Top ten things to love about dogs:

10. Wagging Tails
"See how much I love you?"

9. Soft Ears
"Oh yes, right there!"

8. Big Smiles
"I just shredded the newspaper in the other room and you didn't see me."

7. Good Sits
"Okay, just for you. What's next?"

6. Comfort
"I'm here Mommy. Everything is all right."

5. Play Time
"Now! Now! Can we play now? Pleeeze!!!"

4. Protection
"The UPS man is MINE!"

3. Nap Time

2. Doggy Drool
"Look! I made a picture on the window!"

And the #1 thing to love about dogs:

1. Kisses
"I love you!"

I don't have a dog, but I do like how a good dog tale wags like crazy for a loving master.
Laura Eno said…
These are spot on! I love the smiles that are hiding something and what is it about the UPS man that makes dogs go bonkers? Mine hear that truck going down the street and I can't hear myself think for the antics they go through!
Julie said…
Aww, I love this one! And #1 is so true, I love Clancy kisses. :) Great list, Carol, I'm glad you re-posted it. Happy Weekend! :)
Joanne said…
Thanks for the canine chuckles today :)
Slamdunk said…
This deserves a rerun.

Doggie play time is a must here. Our dog will start playing and soon the kids will all join in--even if the weather is cold.
Janet, said…
I can't believe they never received any comments the first time around. I love them all! Dogs are wonderful!
Shirley Wells said…
I love these. I can so identify with #2. One of my dogs spends half her life lying in the window perfecting her dog art. I don't have the heart to clean it. ;)

Have a great weekend!
Linda G. said…
Aw, those are great! Love them. :)
VR Barkowski said…
Awesome list! Right now I'm living #4. It's too early for UPS, so my pup has decided to practice his protection bark on the movers across the street...for the past two hours. *pressing fingertips to temples*
Linda Kage said…
Ahhh!! That's a good one to replay. And I don't even feel any deju vu!
L.G.Smith said…
Aw, now I gotta go give my dog a hug.

Have a great weekend. :)
I remember fondly all the dogs my folks had as I was growing up. Sweethearts all. Great post.
Deja Vu to you.
Carol Kilgore said…
Liza - The tail tells the tale :)

Laura - Same here.

Julie - Smiling :)

Joanne - You're welcome.

Slamdunk - There's just something about a playful dog :)
I love this, Carol. The one about the UPS man really resonated with me. I swear, my dog goes crazy whenever he sees a truck. Oddly, if a real burglar were to break into my home, our dog would lead him to the valuables for a pat on the head and a peanut butter treat.(:
Carol Kilgore said…
Janet - I was just getting my blog up and running when I posted this and still had very few followers or commenters.

Shirley - I know that feeling :)

Linda G - Woof.

VR - We have days like that, too.

Linda K - LOL!
BECKY said…
Ahhhh, I totally agree on every single one!
Aawww! I love this top 10! How is it that you didn't get any comments the first time around? I absolutely love dogs so I agree with your list and much more. ;)
Dogs rule!!!
Arlee Bird said…
I'm surprised that this one didn't receive any comments. Hope your Google account stays okay.

Tossing It Out
It's nice to read this list again, Carol! Hope everything with Google sorts itself out.
Helen Ginger said…
The best thing about dogs is that they love without judgment.
julie fedderson said…
I think that tail thump sound is one of my favorite things about dogs. They just can't hide happiness.
Anne Gallagher said…
I've always had two or more at the same time so they don't get lonely. I couldn't ever live without them.
Great post.
No one loves more unconditionally than a dog. And the smiles one was funny!
That's a wonderful list! :)
Ann Best said…
I wish my daughter and I could have a dog because I have truly come to love them.

I've enjoyed all of the Top Tens of yours that I've read, Carol! And this one is delightful.

I've noticed several people complaining about Google today. Personally, I'm trying very hard to keep my computing life "simple" these days!

Have a wonderful holiday season!!

Lydia Kang said…
Aw, adorable! Great pick. :)
Thanks so much for joining the Blogfest!
Ciara said…
Great pick. :) I own my first dog ever. It has been a challenge. BTW - I was locked out of Google for 2 days last week.
A cutesy post for dog lovers such as I Carol! Thanks!

Tracy Jo said…
So cute! Hope things are going better with Google, mine was weird earlier too. LOVE dogs. My girl always makes me smile when I am feeling blue. :-) Have a great weekend!
DL Hammons said…
I LOVE this! A perfect pick for re-posting. Thank you for sharing with us again. :)
Carol Kilgore said…
Just a quickie. I'm still here, but it's been a BUSY day and I'm pooped. I'll respond here and visit your blogs over the weekend. Unless something else unexpected happens.
LynNerdKelley said…
I love my dogs and your top 10 rocks! Glad you joined the blogfest. This is my second one and I think they're great, but I don't think I'm going to make it to all the blogs in one day! Great turn out, huh?
This was very cute and I'm glad you re-posted it! Hope everything gets straightened out with your account! Julie
Yes, this is a good one. I agree on every single one.

Carol Kilgore said…
Andrea - Too funny! Our dogs would herd him.

Becky - Ah, a dog lover :)

Claudia - My blog was new when I first ran this post.

Arlee - See above response to Claudia. I hadn't found all you lovely friends yet. So far, so good with Google. Keep your fingers crossed!

Elspeth - Thanks! I think we're good to go, but I'm not totally convinced yet. I need to give it a few days to make sure.
Medeia Sharif said…
Great re-post. So sweet. I adore dogs.

I hope everything's okay with your account.
Carol Kilgore said…
Helen - Yes, they do. It's amazing and wonderful.

Julie - Unless the tail is thumping against your side of the bed at three in the morning because the dog wants to go outside.

Anne - This is our first real time for two dogs. Very different from only one.

Alex - One of mine has that smile thing down pat!

Golden Eagle - Thank you.
Alison Miller said…
What an awesome repost! Glad I got to meet you through the blogfest!
Stephen Tremp said…
And doggies often take the blame for what the cat does!
Carol Kilgore said…
Ann - I wish you could have a dog, too. Thanks for the kind words about my Top Tens :)

Lydia - It's a fun blogfest!

Ciara - Google can be challenging, too :) One of my dogs is easy-going. The other is high-maintenance in every way you can imagine...but so worth it.

Denise - We dog lovers are everywhere :)

Tracy Jo - Dogs are really good at making people smile.
Hi, Carol! Returning your Deja Vu visit!

Doggie ears are the best, especially on a German Shepherd! From full alert, radar dish, listening-to-everything pointiness ... to ears down, sadness/guilt/making-YOU-feel guilty flatness.

Have a great weekend!
What a fun post. I especially love the dog's thoughts on the smile. :)

Thanks for stopping by and following My Blog!
Oh, Carol, that's an adorable list!

Merry Christmas to you!

Carol Kilgore said…
Summer - Thanks!

DL - LOTS of fun!

Lynn - It's Sunday and I haven't made it to even a third. I'm hopeless :)

Julie - So do I.

Teresa - Another dog lover :)
Margo Kelly said…
Sweet! Love this post!!
Carol Kilgore said…
Medeia - I should know for sure next week.

Alison - Same here!

Stephen - Allergic to cats, so that's one problem I don't have.

Dianne - We've never had a German Shepherd. Ours are a border collie and a blue heeler.

Catherine - Yeah...dogs are like that :)
Carol Kilgore said…
Doris - Merry Christmas to you, too!

Margo - Thanks for visiting.
Hi Carol when Google is testing a server functional Blogger bad, I hope to have it resolved soon.

Christmas is endearing, peace and happiness come to your home.
a hug.
Talei said…
oh #1 - Kisses!!! Yes and I love you. Fab.

Ps: Blogger is a devil sometimes, I did notice your avi jumping up and down on mine too .;) Have a lovely week my friend! x
Great list! I'm especially fond of #2. We have 3 dogs who spend a lot of time in the den. The den has french doors. So I put up a sign I found that says, "My windows aren't dirty. That's my dog's nose art."
LR said…
Haha. Love No. 8.

Merry Christmas to your dogs. :) Hope Santa brings them something nice.
Carol Kilgore said…
Ricardo - Merry Christmas!

Talei - Uh-oh. Time to go check. I hope I've stopped jumping :)

Carol - I LOVE that sign. I'll be looking for a duplicate :)

LR - That's a grin that's special. Their gifts are already on Santa's sleigh - or so an elf told me :)
