Barking Worse Than His Bite

OK,  it’s a really bad pun in the title. Sorry, couldn’t resist . . . yes, could have . . . but why?
Rocky the kitten was featured in a July post introduced Rocky as the resident kitten at a local jeweler. From comments posted, many folks posted thought he was a real charmer. Today we heard from Rocky’s human “mom” this week, that he had become quite the feline celebrity by way of that picture post, which she shared with friends. Even if folks don’t leave comments, it’s always nice to hear they enjoyed a post or photos. THANKS to all.
NOW, in fairness to all who also like cute puppy photos, and for fellow bloggers who own dogs, meet Barkley, who coincidentally was the resident pet at another local store visited this week.

But, this nearly 6-month old English bulldog much preferred to play with anyone who would spend some time with him.

Like Rocky, Barkley also posed (briefly) for his portrait was only possible when he was being held by his young owner.

As for Rocky, he’s doing well according to “mom" who said he jumps out of the oversize storage container that was his “home”  for awhile. She may be take him to the store this weekend. We expect to go to the nearby farmer’s market and will stop in at the store,. It’s quite possible to see an updated post soon, but not with BOTH of these young-uns playing together.

This encounter was WHY I always carry acanon elph (3) small digital camera. Again it’s the Canon PowerShot SD1300IS digital Elph shown here. It’s not great at capturing action shots, especially of puppies romping, but it’s ALL about having FUN — just ask Barkley, who by the way DID like to bark.

Love his wrinkly nose. He's cute. I don't have a point & shoot camera - may have to get one!!

I am learning to take my camera wherever we go! What a precious face he has!

Aw, Barkley looks very sweet. I love his wrinkles. :)

I'm more of the puppy kind. This is a cutie.

What a charmer Barkley is! I too always like to have my point and shoot with me everywhere. Most of the time no photo ops pop up, but when they do I'm ready. You just never know.....

Great pictures - and what a charmer that dog is.

Cute puppy.
As for carrying a camera, I have found my Droid has a decent enough camera. I recently heard famed photographer Annie Leibovitz respond when queried "what kind of camera do you recommend"--Your smartphone, was her answer!

I just love Old English Bulldogs and the puppies are the most adorable one can find :-) Not a common sight over here though.

Have a great day!

Awww, he's adorable! My son always wanted an English Bulldog. He still may get one some day.

I'd like to say that Barkley is cute ... so I will. Barkley is cute ... in his own way.
