Where's he going?
Hey, what about me?
Hmm I could be running around the park
instead of sitting here tethered to a cage, waiting! How would he like it if he was tied up and left without so much as a 'do you mind?'


  1. ha fun series of shots...i would so not want to be tethered up like that...

  2. LOVE these photos!

    LOVE your captions!

    LOVE the dog! He/she is sooooo cute! I just wanna give him/her a HUGE hug!

    I see this all the time here in the city. A dog owner will tether their dog to a tree on the sidewalk while they're in a store. I always feel so sorry for them.

    Woof! Woof!

    Have a terrific Thursday, dear lady!


  3. Oh being tethered when he could be running around isn't fair!

  4. Nor me, Brian.

    He was a cutie, Ron. I would never leave my dog like that, if he couldn't go in a store I wouldn't go in either. There were/are too many dog thieves around so I mostly left him at home.

    Absolutely, Pearl. It's not fair at all.

  5. Awwww, what a sweet pooch. He looks like an Old English Sheepdog that has had his summer short-cut. My sister used to have an Old English that looked just like him. His name was Blue and such a character. I have fond memories of trying to get him off their spare bed when I tried to scoot in. He didn't appreciate that very much, always grumbled a little as he got off and when I woke up in the morning there he was lying over my feet! Lovely pictures Valerie. that park looks like a place I would enjoy walking around.

  6. Nice shots, but I wouldn't want to be tied up and left either!

  7. Denise, they're lovable dogs. Enjoyed your story about Blue, I bet he was a weight on your feet.

  8. I think we should tether some of those owners. Poor furry baby. I love Tank too much to take him with me just so I would have to tie him up to something while I went into a store to run some errands. He gives me that look when we leave and he can't go but I make it up to him by taking him for long walks, long runs, and belly rubs. Have a good one Val.
