I love this! Cute puppies are always a great thing!

Now I want a dog!

Awwww...so sweet! I love that my dog is basically forever a puppy -- despite the gray around his mouth these days. LOL!

AWH!! How adorable. I think that's why I have a Chihuahua because he's small like a puppy and doesn't get big like a dog!
:-) Happy TT

Aww... Cute and more cute all x13.

Open Grove Claudia said...

What a great idea for a TT! And boy are they cute. I just love puppies.

Happy TT!

They ARE so cute. Until they start eating your shoes.

Hootin' Anni said...

YES!!! Gotta love puppies!! These are all so adorable.

[I worked on the template of my blog last night when I couldn't sleep and noticed a json code that I was pretty sure that was what was holdin' back Google reader...so I took it out. I'm glad now it's working. :::sigh of relief::: Thanks for letting me know.

Joyce said...

I love the quote about buying happiness. :)

My girls are asking for a little puppy, but that happiness will have to wait until I'm home enough to care for a little rascal.

Ivanhoe said...

They are adorable, but the leonberger puppy is missing... Just kidding... Have a great day, Storyteller!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Those ARE adorable! I think I need to start thinking about a new set of kittens; I think we're in the home stretch with my one cat. Very sad.

Maude Lynn said...

I love the little basset hound!

Annie – I’ve had a dog (or dogs) most of my adult life and find they’re wonderful companions. I’m often tempted to get another puppy as a playmate for her, but Molly is such a puppy at the age of 3 that I’m not sure I have the energy at my rapidly advancing age. LOL

Angela – Mine too. I didn’t know when I got her that labs have the longest puppy-hood of all the breeds, but Molly does keep me young and active.

Kat – Chihuahuas are Qt-ies all right.

Maggie – I have the Puppy a Day widget in my sidebar on this blog and it’s fun to see ‘new puppies’ each time I scroll down.

Claudia – I thought so too. I started saving images a while back w/o thinking of what I’d do with them down the line. This was a fun way to share.

Colleen – Yep … ya do have to spend the time to ‘train’ these little fur-friends, but once they know the difference between our 'stuph' and theirs … it’s pretty cool having a puppy.

Hootin’ Anni – I’m happy to be the bringer of puppy joy and good blogging news both!

Joyce – My folks never let us have puppies (or dogs) when we were kids. My ‘ex’ gave me one on our 2nd wedding anniversary, the 1st summer in our new home with a backyard … and I’ve had a dog (or two) most of my adult life … except for the first couple of years I was retired.

Ivanhoe – Some of my fav breed photos are missing too. The funny thing about making collages with Picasa is that the photos have to be about the same size and shape to ‘work’ right … so I had to ‘compromise’ this morning.

Susan – I like cats, but am allergic to their fur … somehow dog hair doesn’t cause the same problems. I have a ‘feral’ cat who adopted me several years ago … but she lives outside.

Mama Zen – Bassets and Beagles have a special place in my heart too ;--)

Thanks to each of you for spending a bit of your Thursday here at Small Reflections. I hope you’re having a delightful day!
Hugs and blessings,

Jenny said...

Absolutely adorable pictures! Puppies are so special.

Thank you for visiting yesterday and for the nice comment!

Happy TT and belated WW!

maryt/theteach said...

OMG, storyteller! Such cute little puppies!

Momisodes said...

Oh how cute!!! I can't discriminate, I love all of them! I'm such a sucker for puppies :)

Eve said...

Love the puppies! Every once in a while a think how nice it would be to have a companion. One who doesn't talk back or whine at me like my grandchildren. Who is always glad to see me and shower me with love. Who takes me for walks and sits quietly beside me in the evening. Then I remember that if I touch a dog I have to immediately wash my hands, and that under no circumstances is one every allowed anywhere near my face. So, maybe I'll get a stuffed animal.

Joy Des Jardins said...

Oh these faces!!!! Are they too cute for words or what? I've never had puppy....just a pomeranian dog when I was a teenager, but these guys melt my heart. Thanks Virginia.

Lori said...

Awwwwwww, we have the same header this week. Those puppies are so cute. They make me want to get one:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Ivanhoe said...

Hello - I'm back! I got tagged today and you are one of my four that I'm passing the torch onto :o) Hope you will have a time to participate :o)

Anonymous said...

The cutest Thursday Thirteen I've seen yet. Thanks for that. I definitely needed it today.

Betty said...

Such cute puppies. That first one looks a little like a poodle in a way and in a way it doesn't. I guess the poodle is my favorite dog.

Hope you are having a good week.


Karen said...

I adore animals. All animals. I spend more money per capita on animals than people! The puppies are adorable and I have to hide this blog from my daughter or we will end up at the humane society (again).
Great TT!

NicciN said...

So cute. I so wish I could get one, but my allergies are gonna stop me.

Mercedes said...

Awesome! I love dogs! My dalmatian, Patch, in my world! Beautiful pictures! Thanks for visiting!

Karen said...

Oh how adorable!

Akelamalu said...

They are just adorable!

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Adorable! I am partial to any animal or animal lover!!

storyteller said...

Jenny – You’re welcome … it was my pleasure. As for puppies, I agree fully!

Teach – I’m glad you enjoyed them.

Sandy – Me too ;--)

Eve – I’m sorry you have allergies to puppies and dogs. I have the same problem with kittens and cats :--(

Joy – My folks didn’t let us have a puppy (or dog) when we were kids, but I’ve had them all of my adult life. Dogs are wonderful companions!

Lori – I noticed the ‘twin header’ too. Those ‘goldens’ are something else.

Ivanhoe – Hmm … another tag, eh? I’ll be over to check it out later … but I’m making no promises.

Monica – Why thanks! What a nice compliment to receive ;--)

Betty – That one does have a ‘unique’ look, doesn’t it? I’m having a wonderful week, thanks ;--)

Lara – Oh me too! I’m glad you enjoyed these pictures as much as I did.

Yertle – Ah … how sad to be allergic to puppies :--(

Mercedes – Dalmatian’s are wonderful dogs! My 3 year old lab loves to play with all fur-friends whenever she gets the chance.

Karen – Adorable and cuddily … how can one not smile and/or laugh!

Akelamalu – I’m happy you think so … I couldn’t agree more.

MamaGeek – Me too! Dogs are such joyful critters … they always lift my spirits.

I appreciate all of you visiting my T-13 today. Sorry it took me a couple of days to respond, but life’s been busier than usual again. I hope you’re having a ‘superb’ Saturday!
Hugs and blessings,

Tink said...

Cuuuuuuuuuuute!!! I love puppies!
Thanks for visiting my grandmothers TT.

Sonya said...

They are all adorable! I'd love to have them!

storyteller said...

Tink – I’m still enjoying the links in your ‘grandmothers’ T-13 and will delve into the previous one on dophins as time permits. Thanks for your return visit.

Sonya – Me too … though having the photos is simpler than ‘herding’ the whole furry crew for real ;--)

Here’s wishing you both a special Sunday!
Hugs and blessings,

Tina Coruth said...


These puppies are so cute!! I love these photos!


storyteller said...

Tina – Me too! They’re actually ‘captured’ from the Puppy a Day Widget in my sidebar, but I arranged them into collages for this post. You can put the widget on your blog if you wish.
Hugs and blessings,
