Show and Tell

Pin It Now!

Can I bring my dog to Show and Tell?  Funny...I still remember asking my teacher that when I was in elementary school!  I can't remember what I ate for dinner two days ago but I remember things like that!  I also remember the two different phone numbers we had when I was growing up! Why is that still stored in my brain taking up much needed space?
This is the man of the house!  He knows his job is to protect us and he takes it very seriously.  He looks so cute but he's the meanest dog in the world! I'm not joking!  Every one that comes over tells me I should contact Cesar, The Dog Whisper.  It's amazing that I love him so much but I do! 


If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate.If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog. If your link has been removed, please re-read over the guidelines before re-posting, or e-mail me with any questions.Thank you! I look forward to seeing everyone's may take me awhile to get around to visit everyone since I work full time but I'll do my best to get to your blog as soon as I can!

NOTE:  I'm trying out a new link list today.  It will allow you to add a photo. Let me know if you like it!

Christina said...

WOW this is a neat linky thing, I like that you can see photos

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

I like this linky, Cindy!

The Dog Whisperer is amazing ~ I've wished he could help me with my barker (whom I love to pieces).

Aww, your puppy is so precious and sweet looking. I like the new linky thing. Thanks for trying it. said...

Hi Cindy! I like the new McLinky thing! And I LOVE it that you brought your cute doggie for show and tell! He doesn't look mean...hugs...Debbie

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Beau sure does look friendly! Our dog is so sweet, but becomes a vicious, snarling beast if the doorbell rings. I look at it as a free security system! The photos with the links are great. Thanks for hosting, Cindy!

Debbiedoos said...

I love the new linky party Cindy, it is nice to see the pictures. You cracked me up with your dog...Ceasar is awesome, wish I could just wisp to my dog and she listen....

{oc cottage} said...

Mean? That angel face! HA! You have never met Oreo! Lordy! ;}

m ^..^

Lori said...

Yes, I love the picture link. I saw it on another blog also. Kind of like a sneak preview.

One Cheap B*tch said...

Loving this new link thing too! And how cute is your pup?! =)


Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I'm sure he protects you well. Some friends of ours have a dog that looks just like yours and he is kind of mean to others, too.

Elaine said...

Aw, Beau is so sweet looking. Hard to believe he needs a dog whisperer.

Have a great weekend!

Shirley said...

I think my first post on Show and Tell was my dog Rocky : )) Yes, I like the new link thing with the photos!!!

vignette design said...

I have a mean, protective dog too, but I love him so much! He has bitten my daughter's friends before! He has mellowed out a little though. Your doggie is adorable. What breed is he? BTW, I love the new linky thingy.

Wanda Lee said...

Hello there Cindy,

What a sweet doggie you have! Oh my, so utterly adorable and those eyes!..,What a fabulous 'Friday Show And Tell' for this week; a living one!

This 'new linky thing' is cool! I'm going to 'jump right in' and try to link up now..,

Cheers from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

Nancy's Daily Dish said...

I like the link...who doesn't like pictures? I like the doggy more!

Kayren said...

Love this linky option. I'd seen it one other place (where I wasn't linking, just looking). I think it's helpful.

Denise said...

He is adorable!!!
I can't believe he is mean.

Love the new linky thing!
Love your blog.


bj said...

First time to see this new link and it is AWESOME...I am loving it.
Your *man of the house* is a handsome dude.....:)

Leanne said...

He's so cute! Thanks for hosting the party again. It's always a fun one to join in and visit.

raggygirlvintage said...

What a handsome young man!! I'm liking the photos minis.

Deb said...

Hi Cindy, love the photo link! Thanks for hosting, it's my first time at your party..looks great! Deb

Natasha in Oz said...

Oh your dog is so cute! I really want a dog but now that the kids are so busy with school I just don't want to be responsible for looking after it all by myself.

Thanks so much for having me today too-I love this meme!

Have a beautiful weekend,

Flory said...

hi Cindy, nice shot you got there. such a cute dog...I love this linky and I just posted mine...hope you'll visit it too. thanks and have a nice weekend!

Cindy I am loving the photo linkys!!! They are so neat!!
Thanks for letting me link up this week!

Gattina said...

This is the kind of dog my cat Arthur likes the most. He sits like a statue on the little wall at our house and the little dog barks and barks and jumps and the owner doesn't know what to do with him, and the whole area is alerted lol ! But it is true they are very cute.

My Cozy Corner said...

Hi Cindy
I love the new look for our link. I you are always looking for new ways to make blogging more fun. Thanks for your wonderful blog. (and your dog is adorable)

Bella's Rose Cottage said...

Hi Cindy,
I remember wanting to take my dog for show and tell too! Phone numbers are another story... I can hardly remember my current one!
Love the new link system... thumbnail pics are fun! Thanks again for hosting :-)

Joanne Kennedy said...

LOL It must have something to do with those little dogs thinking they are killer dogs. My little guy is the same way! It's so funny to watch, though at times it can be embarrassing too.

I should do a post on my guy. It's been awhile. Thanks for the idea.

Love the new link up with photos. Where did you find that?


Lana said...

What a cutie patootey dog and I love that you asked your teacher that!!!

I've been following your site for AGES and AGES and LOVE it and am a relatively new blogger (since the end of Nov just af ew months ago) and new participant in Show and Tell and I love it!

Thanks for all the inspiration,

Sandy said...

Hi Cindy,
This is my first linky I've ever done and of course I didn't do it right. I didn't realize when I added my URL I had to have the URL for the post not my blog. I thought I added that later. So it's going back to my blog and not linked directly to my Show and Tell Post. I don't know if it can be fixed or not the URL for the post is:

Teacup Lane (Sandy)

Hootin Anni said...

LOVE!!! Love the linky thing! Gives us all a 'heads up' as to what we're gonna look for when we get to the blogs.

Your dog is sooooooooooo sweet.

Here is my Show n Tell for the week.

A New England Life said...

Great new Linky! I really like that we can add a photo. Hopefully I'll be seeing this one more often on other blogs too.

Funny but I was just on another blog yesterday (Bloomfield Farm) reading about their super mean dog. I'm telling you, this dog was mean! lol!

Glad to participate for the first time in Show and Tell Friday. Don't worry if you don't stop by. Life gets busy. Have a great week-end Cindy!


Hiew Li Young said...

Hi Cindy, love the new linky!
Hope to participate in your Show and Tell soon! :)

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Hi Cindy,
Love your poochie. I have two. They are both so sweet, but the beagle won't let anyone through the door! Just a certain few people that he likes, other than them, he is our fierce protector :)

Hi Cindy,
I love the new linky thing, makes it so much more fun looking at everyones chosen photo for their post.
I grew up with a Cocker Spaniel who was the most loyal dog I have ever had BUT if you ever wore a hat around him, he would go nuts! Not sure what the issue was because we had had him from a 6 week old pup.


I like being able to see pic's sooooo much better, great idea Cindy (;

Sandy @ My Shabby Streamside Studio said...

It's about time someone invented one of these McLinky things with a preview thumbnail!

Thanks for using it, Cindy!

Sweet European Dreams said...

I'm glad I found your blog today, and I too, still adore Show n' Tell. I'll be visiting often!

Hi Cindy~ ~Your doggie is a sweetie! Of course you can bring him to Show and Tell. Love pets.
Love the picture link this is so cool.
~ ~Ahrisha~ ~


I love your sweet dog and I think you're new linky is great. Thank you for hosting "Show and Tell Friday".

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

Love the pictures with the links. I visited many more because of the pictures.
He may be mean, but he looks so sweet.

deb said...

I don't have a blog, but I read many and really appreciate being able to "see" what I might want to before I view it...saves time. Thanks!

Ribbonwood Cottage said...

HI Cindy I do like the new linky...thingamabob! Hahahahah....I love this party and always enjoy coming to your blog to see what is going on. Such lovely posts from you and everyone else. Nice way to spend my morning!

Anonymous said...

I just found your site and joined. Left a few links at your party too. Thank you for letting me join in.

Susan Freeman said...

Your dog does look sweet and he probably is with you and your family. He has a big job protecting the family and he obviously takes it very seriously. He looks so cute. I would love to give him a hug, if he would let me. I think your new linky is great, although I should have put the name of my posting as my "name". Now I know better. Love the pics with the links. It adds to the drama and excitement of visiting the participants!

I like the new link thing -- a viewer can preview the projects, and look at the ones which interest her.


violetlady said...

I love the photo of your doggie. I am not joining in the Show and Tell today since it has been such an awful day -- our dear Violette cat left this world today. I did do a post, but wouldn't call it a Show and Tell really. My poodle can be a real lover, but he needs The Dog Whisperer, too. He rules the roost with an iron paw!

GwendolynKay said...

Your doggy is so darling!! I do love the new link you used. And now I am going to go and post something on my blog for show and tell!
Have a great weekend!

Lisascraftiques said...

Love the new picture option!

*Ulrike* said...

Your dog is adorable, and I'm sure he is a great protector too!

Sausha @ {Sweet Pickins} said...

thanks for hosting - love the party and all the ideas :)

Victoria said...

I LOVE the new linky! It's so much easier because you can focus on posts that you think will interest you would be nice to visit them all but I don't think anyone realistically has the time! This way we don't miss out on ones that we'd love. I've already found about 5 more blogs to follow in just the past hour!!!

Victoria said...

Oh, and I lover you doggy! You mentioned the Dog Whisperer but have you ever seen It's Me or the Dog with Victoria Stillwell? She's amazing! It's on Animal Planet.

Becky from Tennessee said...

Oh my goodness, Cindy....I must
have your little guy's sister!!!
Speaking of MEAN, my Katie is a
rescued Rat Terrier and Terror
would be more appropriate!

I know exactly what you mean
about loving him....I love my
Katie sooooo much and don't
know WHY!!!! I would say she's
as mean as a snake but that isn't
fair to snakes! LOL!!

Anyway, he's a cutie. I showed
Katie his picture and she agrees.
If only she didn't live so far
away....they could get together
and snap and snarl together! :-)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Cindy, Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. You have a verry nice garden. And I like the new linky. Your pup is too cute...Julian

Rhianna said...

I love the new linky thing, it really helps to have a picture and bit of a description for each post especially when there are so many to look at. I can't believe you have a dog in such a white house, you must have trained him to wipe his feet!

Attic Clutter said...

Love the doggy(:)
~~your blog looks beautiful..
Am just strolling around blogland today ..
been awhile and am trying to catch up~


Cottage Sunshine said...

Hi Cindy,

I love the new linky thing too! Thank you for hosting!!


Olivia said...

Oh my I just love your blog it is so inspiring! I am still trying to put your button on my blog....slowly but surely I am getting the hang of this!

Peggy said...

Your new linky was fab! It was nice to see a pic to decide if I'd like to visit..of course, I wanted to visit them all..LOL Peggy from PA

Friday, I never get tired of looking at your home. Your outdoor patio is so cute and cozy. I can amagine with so many viewer to your web page asking what someone would enjoy on a show and tell could be possible overwhelming. For me I like things pertty, and cost effective to make or take a room and rearrange it to make it more cozy and multi-functional. I look forward to popping in and visiting your web site almost daily. I'm married and he lets me do what I want but we do share imputs and ideas together about the home. It is half girlie and half manly ( for lack of word) I made our rec room nautical theme. Gold walls ,wood shelves going across one wall, a large copper boat about 2 ft. long on a wood shelf, and pictures of light houses , ocean etc. But my home if I had my choice would look just like yours! So I go on and dream. Thanks
