You Don’t Say……Or Do You? A little caption contest…..


IMG_5580(Photo credit goes to  my husband.  Subjects:  In the foreground is Mr. Duhgall (our black Scottie) and Miss Dinkham is in the background and is my sister in law's Queensland Heeler.)

A few weeks back, my husband and Mr. Duhgall took a road trip up to visit my sister in law and husband in the Spokane, Washington area.  The newest family member (I guess you could call her my dog-niece) is Miss Dinkham, who is a Queensland Heeler.  Not quite a year old, Miss Dinky (as we affectionately call her), can be a bit over zealous at play and being a female (don’t hate on me for that one and throw tomatoes at me!), she can be a tad bit on the bossy side.  Like our Fiona.  (Poor Fiona…she is such a love, too.)


My hubs and I sat down on the couch, with our morning coffee in hand, and looked at all of the photos that he snapped on his trip.  When we saw this one, we nearly fell off of the couch!  I am still laughing!  So we thought it would be fun to have a little caption contest for the picture.  All you need to do is to leave a comment, or email me, with what you think would be the best suited caption and our family (hubs, son and moi) will pick the winner.  Not sure what the prize will be, but hey, that will just have to be a surprise!  The winner will be picked on Monday evening, Pacific Standard Time and announced on Tuesday morning.

Oh, and by-the-way, I am going to moderate the comments and upload all of them right before we choose the winner.  I guess it would be like covering your paper during a test...no peeking!  :)


Still to come is a giveaway later this month.  So stay tuned for that.  Same bat time, same bat station.

Such a funny picture!
Ok here's my caption.
"Mister, don't think you can finish this by turning your back and ignoring me!"

Mary said...

............."I AM prettier than him!!!!!"

Great shot - your Mr. Dughall must be such a good boy sitting so gracefully and taking such abuse, ha! ha!

I've no dog shots up today but you might like my big cats!

Hugs - Mary

Watch Out! That is an attack dog in front of me. That pretty face is deceiving.

Stop Right There! My guard pal is laying on the jewels and there is no way you are going to get under THAT fortress.

What do you mean you left the ransom home? I told you-If you want your pet alive you were to bring 500 Milk bones. Too bad you can't follow a simple order. Say good-bye to your precious Fiona.

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Hello Dear Becky.....Remember me??? So very sorry to have been so long gone. I could give you many excuses, but they would be just "excuses" - and there truly is none that is acceptable. I'm just not doing a very good job of keeping up. And, for some silly reason, when I get behind on a blog, I stay away thinking I'll come back when I have time to "catch up" (i.e., read all the past posts and properly comment.) Alas, that will not happen in my lifetime - so rather than be forever absent, I thought I'd awkwardly pop in here and let you know I've been thinking of you.

And what do I find welcoming me - but this hysterical photo. Oh my heck!!! Dozens of captions are running through my head - and I'm sure I'll drift off to sleep tonight with even more....But, the first two that popped in place were [using your best sopranic voice] "I can't HEEEAAR you!" and "Never mind her, she still hasn't gotten over that house falling on her sister."

I do hope you'll share all the comments - something tells me this is gonna be GOOD!

Hope all is well - and hope you find forgiveness for me in your heart. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Awesome snap.

How about:

"You're short, you're hairy...you are NOT THE BOSS OF ME!"

Brenda said...

Going in one ear, and right out the other.

Genevieve said...

Adela Spunter said...

I'm getting all these sorts of ideas for a caption of the photo but I just couldn't wait to say how awesome you are of a person to be able to formulate such random and yet very fun interactions with your readers.

Wilma Wauseon OH said...

If you don't back off I'll send Mr. Dughall after you.

Lallee said...

LOL LOL LOL

My submission: Dad said "Say cheese" but Miss Dinky thought he said "Say Gorgonzola."

Chenille Cottage said...

Clearly, judging by the snarl on Miss Dinky's face she is PMSing or she hasn't had her morning coffee! Sweet Dughall seems oblivious to the Jeckel and Hyde lurking over her shoulder.
This is hilarious, Becky!
Smiles,
Carolynn xo

wendy said...

Great picture.

how about "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW"

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh poor little doogs, lol, look at that sweet little oblivious smile!

I can never think of anything clever for captions, I'll have to think about it.

Patti said...

I couldn't tell what time the contest ends on Monday night. Possibly it has already ended, but just in case, here is my caption:

"There she goes again, yelling at me to get off my butt and mow the lawn. Must be that time of the month again!"

I've been off-line for almost a week and this is the funniest thing I could possibly see when I got back on this evening. Poor Dughal, always the gentleman, being confronted by such wild puppy exuberance. I may be too late for the caption contest, but it looks like Miss Dinky is saying "Hey Doogs! Can you hear me now?"

Liz said...

Oh Becky, what a fun contest! I'll have to give it some thought....


Love your pretty new blog dress! It suits you to a tea! :)
