    Wow. Only the, umm, third time ever posting here, but wow! I can’t believe that I am up at this ungodly hour, and so excited that I was the first to post! WOOHOO! Umm, does anyone know what kind of dog Chuck is? He looks a lot like a lab, but not really… HAPPY CHUCK FRIDAY!

  • Cute!

  • Rob from London

    Wow, early post today. TGICF!

  • Yayy, a Chuck & Leta Friday!

  • He looks ever so slightly apprehensive…or perhaps just submissive. She does have him by the collar, after all. She’s a quick study, that Leta.


  • supercute. super-supercute.

  • Diana

    puppy kisses

  • yes very cute indeed
    I love the photo and think both Leta and Chuck look so cute.

  • perception

    they’re so adorable. =)

  • Michelle Brady

    I have photos of my daughter like that (she is just a few months older than Leta), except mine always look like the dog is about to get seriously rooked out of something she really wants. Like a spot on the sofa, a peaceful nap, or the will to live.

  • Just like… Carl and the baby.

  • “Sniff..sniff…she smell absolute edible” said Chuck the dog.

  • Hee, Manchurians. Maybe you saw The Manchurian Candidate? :p I like the light on Leta’s head in the photo!

  • That is so sweet!

  • pseuod

    Scary. It reminds me of my dog and son 2 & half) in exactly the same situation in a corner naer the frontdoor. My border collie snapped just him above his eye.

  • PS. Lovely new header!

  • Chuck! (And Leta already has a thing for jewelry.)

  • Kirsty

    I love the ‘angelic’ lighting around Leta. I’m sure Chuck would disagree though.

  • Nickie

    “I’m cuter than you!”
    “Pah. Clearly that’s not the case.”

  • Star

    Love Churck Fridays! He makes me miss my dog, may he rest in peace. Only another owner of a happy urinator could understand how mortifying it is to have your dog lift his leg on your neighbour and land a direct hit.

  • Henryk_

    Anyone watching THE funeral?

  • CJ

    The best parts of the photo are her tiny buddha belly, and chuck’s somewhat sheepish stance. Beautiful.

  • Henryk_

    Chuckie is probably checking the belly as well!

  • Henryk_

    ……..a dingo’s got my babyyyyy!!!

  • That is so sweet, he is going to be so protective of her.

    Good for chasing off the boys.

  • Reality Bites

    Yeah, he really does love her. You can tell. I don’t know why people don’t think animials have feelings.That’s so cool…

  • I think they will be very good friends by the look of things. Cute.

  • Constance

    Brother and sister, cute

  • what a cute photo. sweet!

  • Jo

    I’m not *from* Manchester, England, but I do live there. Do I count as a Mancunian?

  • Jo

    I can’t tell if Cjuck’s about to slobber all over Leta’s face, or bite it off. Oh, the tension.

  • Liv

    I’m a true Mancunian! Born right in the middle of the damn place, and still hanging around.

  • Jo

    < waves > Hi Liv! Where are you?

  • he looks like he’s concerned about her in this picture – it’s easy to see how they get along!

  • Was this taken before or after the tongue bath?

  • How cute!!!!!!!!puppy love

  • Leta is checking Chuck’s tag to make sure he is who he says he is.

    Happy Chuck and Leta FRIDAY!!!!!

  • Oh that picture is really adorable.

    I loved the Mancunian story too, Oh, how it made me laugh!

  • Kiki

    I also love her, she is just so darn cute!

  • Chuck and Leta Friday! Doesn’t get any better.

  • “come on dog! let’s break outta this joint and go for a walk. I’LL take you to the dog park myself! let’s go.”

  • kim

    that’s SO cute. it does look like the perfect harmony. adorable..

  • great photo as usual

  • Jme

    He smells poptarts on her breath! 😀 And I’m swooning over how cute they look together. *audible swoon*

  • Brandee

    So well put, Heather. I feel exactly the same way. Even when the goings tough (and believe me, there are days when I feel like the birth control fairy, “Bringing the blessing of Birth Control to all I come in contact with”) there is truly nothing I’d rather be doing. I mean, how many people are going to get to go explore a smooshed snake on the street for the four millionth time today??!!

  • For some reason, I can hear the song _Atomic Dog_ playin’ in the background on this one.

    Bow wow wow yippeyo yippeyay
    Bow wow yippeyo yippeyay

    Why must I chase the cat?

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
