Saturday Snapshot--February 19, 2011

This meme is hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books

To participate in Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don't post random photos that you find online.


This is our miniature poodle, Charlie, whom we rescued about two and a half years ago. With a rescue you never know what you're getting yourself into, but Charlie is a dream: hardly barks, is intelligent, loves kids and just wants to be with people. He got hurt recently, but is now back in action so I thought I let today be about him.

Looks like his rescuers did the right thing! Great job!

Oh, Charlie looks adorable! And I love how he is the focal point of a gorgeous backdrop, too.

Thanks for sharing....

Here's my SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

Oh I have such a heart for animals in need of rescue! Beautiful dog Helen!

There's a rescue poodle in our neighborhood named Charlie too! Your Charlie is beautiful!

Margaret, Angie, Sheila--Charlie is very happy and brings joy to all of us (despite all the work involved in having a dog!)

Laurel-Rain--I love the sparkling water as well

Burmuda--That's funny, there is a Charlie in our neighborhood who is a white poodle mix. We obviously weren't very original in our name choice!

Alyce said...

He's so cute, and he looks like he was actually posing for that photo!

Bev Hankins said...

Charlie is a very handsome fella! This is a wonderful shot of him.

Alyce--He does look like he posed, but in reality he always turns away when I point the camera at him, but this time it worked!

Bev--Thank you, I just love the way it all worked with the ocean and wind

Ellie said...

Charlie is beautiful.

Shari Green said...

Glad to hear he's "back in action" -- sounds like a great dog! :)

Helen's Book Blog said...

Ellie--Thank you, he was really ugly when we got him: skinny, shaved, and scared

Shari--He is a great dog

kavyen said...

He looks so darn adorable... I wish I could get him home :)

Kavyen--Thanks!

What a cutie. My SIL's rescue is celebrating his 1ST birthday with her tomorrow. (We think he is about 3).

K. Harrington said...

Charlie looks like a happy friend!

Helen's Book Blog said...

Diane--I think rescue dogs really appreciate a happy home. I hope your SIL is enjoying hers

K--Thanks!

Aths said...

Oh, I didn't know you had a poodle! How wonderful! I so want a dog, but I'm worried about the time when I'm at work.

Trish said...

Gosh you really scored a great dog! He looks so happy too. I bet he thinks he scored a great family ;)

Helen's Book Blog said...

Aths--I only got a dog because we share a house with my parents and they are retired. But, if you have an outside area where the dog can go during the day they really are wonderful companions. And, poodles have hair, not fur so they don't shed

Trish--We always hope he likes us as a family
