Animals, Everyone Loves a Braggart...Right?, Uncle Jesse, Wipe the Drool

GOGP’s Sexiest Dog of the Year!

Okay. Maybe not sexiest. Unless you’re into that kind of thing. (I’m a guilty pleasure blogger. I don’t judge.)

As you might recall, Uncle Jesse, our [not quite] 2-year-old Australian Labradoodle, had his first photo shoot last month, and the 130+ pictures arrived on Christmas Eve! Thanks, Jenn and Joseph Frazz Photography!

Are you ready for this, celebratory chipmunks?! These were taken in our yard, and yes, we have a giant flag painted on a board on the back fence, courtesy of the original homeowners. (We’re thinking of adding flags from around the world, whaddya think?)

Prepare yourselves for hunk-itude:





And my personal favorite:


How are you celebrating (besides putting your supermodel dog in a gold bow tie? Oh wait, is that just me?)? Any resolutions?

  1. Are you allowed to use these for greeting cards? OH!, the possibilities seem endless…”Huh? You did what?” “Thanks for the great meal. I’m still licking my errr, ” well, Anyway. He is was capital A awesome pup.

  2. Your sweet Labradoodle is adoradoodle.

    Resolved: Get Julie to write a guest post for me. Details coming soon to a theater near you.

    Resolved: To do something fun with my slap bracelets. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Resolved: That’s all I’ve got going right now. I’m not big into public resolutions.

    Happy New Year. Julie!

    1. Renee, let’s talk about how very LITTLE convincing it would take for me to write a guest post for you. I won’t even make you dance (again). Although I really, really want to.
      Happy New Year!!

    1. He wears those stars and stripes like they’re going out of style, yet he still thinks he can correct people when they say he’s an “Aussie” instead of an “Ozzie.” Jerk.

    1. Ha! Luckily, Peppermeister got me a new printer (you know, that kind that works) for Christmas, and guess how many pictures I’ve already printed (…and framed)?! I’m not sure I have time to go back to work tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Happy New Year!

    1. Would it be vain if I started submitting that one to greeting card companies? (Not that I mind being vain. I just thought asking would make me look even more wonderful. ;))

  3. Someone has already used the adjective that came to mind, perhaps not usually associated with sexy hunk-tudes, but these shots are PRECIOUS. My main resolutions are to have more fun and to remember to blog a couple times a week. Happy New Year!

    1. ha! Thank you so much, Patti! We are completely obsessed with Uncle Jesse (and I have now officially taken over for Captain Obvious).

      I love your resolutions, and Happy New Year to you!

  4. Aw! He looks so mournful somehow in that “shake” picture! Adorable in all of them, of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the idea of adding other flags to the one you’ve already got. Especially if you post pictures of an update down the road!

  5. Holy dog treats, Batman! Now I understand why people use professional photographers for their pets! Bow-wowsa!

    1. Thank you so much, Sophia! When he’s not busy being shamelessly spoiled, he is pretty nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

      But I can’t take credit for the pictures – they’re all thanks to Joseph Frazz Photography (a Christmas gift from my -AWESOME- bestie)!

  6. These are shoulda-taken-preventative-insulin sweet. Is he named for an actual uncle or is someone in your household a closet Dukes of Hazzard fan? (Sorry if you’ve answered this elsewhere, but I’m new to the pool and haven’t gotten to the deep end yet.)

    1. Squee – I’m pretty excited that this post / Uncle Jesse is gettin’ some lovin’! Thank you, and welcome!! He is actually named after John Stamos’ character from Full House (heh)! He even does a “Watch the hair, huh!” trick. No lie. There’s YouTube proof. And he has a bed that’s monogrammed “Have Mercy.”

  7. Whenever I hear a homophobe insisting that being gay is unnatural and that it doesn’t happen in the animal kingdom, I will forever shake my head, shhhhush the person talking by putting my finger on his or her lips, and show them these pictures. God bless you, Uncle Jessie (of Dukes of Hazzard Jessie)! May your parents paint you a rainbow flag just as big as that ole USA flag one day, buddy!
