It’s Another A-Z Break Day

So I decided to post a few photos I really like that

  • just didn’t fit into any of the A to Z posts
  • were found after the letter they fit was already posted

The future president is a bit old in this photo for it to have been be posted under Babies and Dogs. That’s a big hint that the letter T will not be Toddlers and Dogs.  Partying Dogs beat out Possessive Dogs for the letter P.

The ears on this dog are just amazing.

I almost posted this photograph with the Listening Dogs using the logic “dogs have great hearing so even though the ear piece is hanging down the dog is listening”. Another clue for the letter T, it won’t be Talking Dogs.
