I love it when my guys smile.




About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. My usual self wants to make a comical crack about having the two pictures together, but I hope you know that I love this post! Both pictures are great.

    This post also makes me sad that our family dog is gone. He would smile at people, but for a long time we thought he was just baring his teeth. I’m getting teary as I type this.

    • I am sure the snark wants to surface, but really–can you resist those two faces?? Guys with joie de vivre, both of them. πŸ˜€ *hugs* for your doggie. Boy, do they wrap themselves around your heart. I have been around enough dogs now that I realize Buddy is definitely smiling. He’s a cheerful soul. And I really needed some of that this week.

  2. My dog smiles, especially at the table, always thinking he’ll get invited to sit in the empty chair because he’s so cute. As for RA, it’s not “wouldn’t I like to know…it’s ‘”wouldn’t I like to GNAW?” like about 2″ below either ear and I’ll stop when I’m full.

      • Does he have anything that isn’t an erogenous zone? I certainly can’t figure out where that would be.

          • Have to admit they are nuzzle-worthy and most thud-worthy. Of course, again–is there any part of him that isn’t?

            • Nope, can’t say there seems to be. Oddly as an old married woman, I don’t feel quite as guilty imagining attending to those zones compared with *ahem* others . . . *looks up at ceiling with innocent expression*

              • As one old married lady to another, I feel no shame whatsoever in expressing my desire to jump on the lad and having my way with him. It will never happen in my lifetime or his (sorry RA, I wouldn’t leave my husband even for you, unless of course you dressed up like Thorin every night) It’s fantasy. Healthy, womanly, fantasy. Besides my husband has a heart condition. I have to get my kicks somewhere…LOL

  3. Great pic of Buddy and I love all the pics from that one sitting with our beautiful Mr. Armitage (yes, I would love to know what he’s thinking in that one. Kind of a Cheshire Cat quality, there).

    • Yes, he was very expressive in that particular sitting and again, it didn’t appear as if a lot of “work” had been done on the images. I agree about Cheshire cat quality, too. πŸ˜‰
