With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Polka Dot Puppy

Polka Dot Puppy

Raider visited the groomer a few days ago.
His stern face and jutting eyebrows belie the
bandanna he wore home.
Perhaps the upside-down peace signs are appropriate
Ever since Raiders encounter with the honeybees this past fall, I have
noticed spots where he didn't used to have spots!
 Kind of unusual.
You'd never know from looking at this face just how sweet he can be.
He likes to find a comfy place where he can also keep an eye out for intruders that might be passing by.

When the coast is clear...
 he feels it is safe to drift off to sleep...
 sweet boy

I look at that face and I see 'sweet'.

He looks like a sweet boy :) And very handsome!

Ann said...

I think his face makes him look very distinguished. He's a very handsome boy that's for sure. How peculiar that he has those spots now.

What a sweet pup!

Visiting from Pear Tree Lane. Love your blog!

He sure is a handsome fellow!

Your 'Raider' is as handsome as a show dog. He could strut his stuff with the best of them I think! I love to watch those dog shows on tv. I get excited when one is coming on, which isn't often, what? around Thanksgiving. We don't have a dog, we used to have a boxer though. Thats another story. =)

thanks for liking my sewing efforts! I'm so happy with the results and only wish I'd done it years ago. I didn't realize how faded out the old quilt was...and what a happy difference it made!

Good for you, getting your laundry all caught up, that is a big job I know, laundry multiplies so quickly when you turn your back for a few days! I wish for the wisdom and energy to somehow?!? tackle and organize my craft/sewing/storage room. Ahh...one of these days. Its pouring here...I hope you are having a cozy evening...

Cindy said...

How sweet! We don't have any pets due to our son's allergies but I do enjoy seeing other people's fur babies.

Patty@sewingseeds said...

What's not to love about that face? It's so good to see Raider fully recovered even with a few extra spots.

Susan said...

Dear LDH...Honestly, Raider is one of the cutest darned dogs I've ever seen. Soooo handsome. I picture him being led on a leash near Buckingham Palace, chin up in the air, prancing with the Queen. Susan

NanaDiana said...

He is a sweetie. Do you suppose the spots are over some scar issues from the stings? You'd never know how sick he was to look at him now! xxoo Diana

marie said...

I love that fifth photo. One little paw up and those eyes!! Sweet boy indeed!

Sue said...

I well remember his episode with the bees, and I bet he does too.He is one blessed fella.
Raider is adorable!

He looks very handsome! Our schnauzer is in need of the groomer....perhaps I will be inspired looking at your good looking Raider!

Vivienne said...

hehe how adorable with the bandanna! i love how you captured his stern/strict look as well as the close up of his soft/sweet face!

La Tea Dah said...

Raider is gorgeous! And what a terrific haircut --- I love the geometric line to his furnishings. He looks cute in his spots, even though the cause was traumatic. Our schnauzers have some spots too --- each one representing something traumatic in their life.

Adorable little guy! My poodle (that passed away last October at 12 yrs old) also had an area on her back where she got cut by barbed wire (poor baby) and it was darker than the rest of her fur. I'm guessing it was just where the scaring happened so maybe that's what happened to your little guy.

Very cute pics - thanks for sharing!

God bless you - Julie

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

He is peace and love...perfect bandanna for this boy!

GardenofDaisies said...

AW, What a cute face! Look at him in his peace kerchief!! :-)

Kristen said...

Are those spots scars from bee stings? He sure is a handsome boy; so distinguished when he poses.

T's Daily Treasures said...

Great photos of Raider! He is so handsome and I have no doubt that he is the sweetest thing ever. Those bees certainly left their mark. Several years ago, I stayed with friends at a summer house with all our kids (at that time there were 10 all together) and several of them had bees up their shirts because someone stepped on a nest. Yikes! We were ripping clothes off kids as fast as we could trying to get those bees to stop stinging. What a nite that was. Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

Deila said...

I love you photos, great shots. We have two german shepherds, sweet dogs, and they keep me walking.

Sandy said...

Oh, Raider really is a cutie pie. I wonder how
my little Toby would look in a bandana. At
this point I don't think I could find one
small enough. Sorry about the bees! Poor
darling!

Jennifurla said...

I love these posts so much! what personality this pooch has.

Mildred said...

Raider is such a precious pup. I am so thankful that he recovered from that horrible ordeal. He is cute patrolling from your window!!!

Lizzy said...

Raider is darling!!! His new spots give him character :) Our 11 year old yellow lab has freckles on her nose for the first time...too funny!

Life In a Little House said...

Oh he is just so sweet...and how odd with the spots maybe the bees left a permanent mark on him. Thanks for sharing all those wonderful pictures made me smile ~Love Heather

Adrienne said...

He's just teasing you! He really is smiling under that stern look on his face. I think the spots are his battle scars. He should wear them proudly. He survived! He's a sweetie.

sheila @ Elements said...

Awwwwww...what a cutie pie!!! He has the sweetest face and looks great in polka dot peace signs! :)

Janice said...

I don't see a stern face there at all. Raider is a fraud, you only have to look in his eyes to see what a sweetie he really is!

Rubie said...

I see adorable! Hope you are having a great weekend.

Kathleen said...

The bee stings left those scars, wow!

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

Hi, thanks for coming by our blog. We are so happy to meet Raider and we went back to your past post to read about his encounter with the honeybees. What an experience! I can almost feel what you went through that day. That must be frightening. Raider is indeed a fighter to have came through that incident. I guess those spots will disappear in time but so what if they don't as long as Raider is all well and good.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

What an adorable face! Luckily, the bees just left spots and didn't do worse damage. That must have been scary! I love dogs in bandanas - so cute.

Joan said...

How cute! I love the bandana.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I've always been interested in photography - just beginning to learn a new DSL and hope to share more photos in the future.

Blessings,
Joan

Beth said...
