Blue Monday - Daughter's Dogs in Blue & Pierce

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

**The first Monday in September will be the blogiversary of Blue Monday. This September will be the 7th blogiversary!  

My daughter lives in Gainesville with three lucky dogs. She recently took this picture of them napping. Shirley is convalescing in a Blue heating pad (she hurt her back). Dashchunds are known for having weak backs.

After Debi snapped this picture, she noticed the blanket, the heating pad, the dog's toy, and Shirley's bed are all Blue. So she sent this picture to me to share with you for Blue Monday.

One of the dogs, Betsy, is terrified of thunder, so she is seen in a thundervest. It gives the dog a feeling of security. Louie is the third dog in the picture. He and Shirley are litter mates. You might notice their gray muzzles that show their age.

It's nice to have family on the lookout for Blue.


Today is our grandson, Pierce's 17th birthday. He has been homeschooled (as have all our Gainesville grandkids). He's completed his first year at Santa Fe Community College. We are so very proud of him! This picture was taken almost two years ago, but it's so Blue that I had to share it!

Here's a more current picture of Pierce in his Mustang.    ♬ Happy Birthday, Pierce!  ♬

Happy Blue Monday!

A dog with a blue toy is probably a happy boy (or girl)!

Happy birthday to Pierce, love those photos of him! Handsome fellow.

Our dog is afraid of thunder too. His thunder vest doesn't seem to help.
Happy Birthday to Pierce!

Hi Sally, what a great photo of the dogs who are so loved. Blue. And your grandson - lovely photos. Thank you for Blue Monday today, very much appreciated. My blue is tucked in with the table, some blue blankets on a couch.

Have a good week.

What a handsome g'son....Happy Birthday to him.

Pets are just like children to some. We had dogs all the time when my husband was alive, but no more. You can get too attached to them and it is as bad as loosing a family member. Blues are easier for me to find than some of the other colors. Have a good week.

Many happy returns for Pierce's special day, Sally. I hope Shirley gets better soon, I bet she is getting lots of TLC!

Sally, your grandson looks so happy in those photos! Hope he has a wonderful birthday. Love the shot of the doggies -- my mom always had dachsunds, and they were such sweeties.

Happy Blue Monday to you!

The dogs look so adorable in their blue world. And pierce looks so happy on his birthday. What a grand fish he holds.

Hi Sally, I had some problems with linking up; Happy Monday :)

Al said...

Those dogs are adorable! It's a good thing mine aren't afraid of thunder considering how much we get here in the summer.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I can't go to bed without saying hello. The dogs ARE very lucky to have a home where they are love. Great blue too/ I have never heard of a thunder vest but it is a good idea. We had a dog that was afraid of thunder and it was pitiful.

Pierce is a very handsome guy. Happy birthday wishes Pierce. You look very cool in your car and the fish is huge.

I hope all is well with you and yours Sally. I have been away from my computer but hopefully I can find time to visit and post again soon.

Have a happy week.
Love, Jeanne
