"Taking a nap." Photo took by myself of a cute and tranquil dog at a store in Avaré (ESP) ready and beautifully decorated for Christmas. "Tirando um cochilo." Foto que cliquei de um cãozinho muito fofo e tranquilo, numa loja em Avaré (ESP) pronta e lindamente decorada para o Natal.


  1. E que cochilo bom!Linda foto!beijos,chica

  2. Poor fella must be tired of waiting for Santa to get up! What Diwali means to us in India is What Christmas means to you guys, Thankfully in India we get to celebrate both Diwali as well as Christmas... Wake up Santa where is my gift!! :) :)

  3. LOL, LOL....Very cute picture, Sonia....Santa resting up before all of the heavy work....I love that sweet dog in the foreground resting up, too...!
    Very Sweet!

  4. Sonia, what a nice picture! Joyful Christmas atmosphere with many items, and so cute the sleeping dog!
    Have a pleasant Thursday :-)

  5. sweet :)

    and those yummy fruit in your masthead shot - they look so christmassy too.

    have a great weekend, sonia! x

  6. Now that is so cute, I love it! It's almost getting me in the Christmas mood!

  7. I love the way dogs curl up like doughnuts.

  8. What a sweet pooch. I love his chocolate brown coloring. I hope Santa brings him lots of treats when they both wake up.

  9. Que linda foto, Sonia.
    Que soninho gostoso!


  10. Il attend pendant 364 jours... comme les vendeurs de muguet.

  11. I think that Santa is saving his strength for all the hard work that he;ll be doing in a month's time.

  12. Curled up like a bean. It's so sweet how a dog can tuck all his feet into one place underneath him.
    I wonder if this dog is waiting for Christmas or waiting for all the hubbub to be over!

  13. Santa looks pooped and it's not even Thanksgiving yet! :) I am so curious where this is, that a dog is sleeping so peacefully in the middle of a store! Beautiful photo.

    I have to say, that I got such enjoyment out of all your comments yesterday as you were visiting my blog. It took me back to a number of the old posts, reminding me of some I had almost forgotten!

    Let me explain more about Katie. She was rescued by Animal Compassion Network, the group I volunteer with. Katie and Lucky lived at a "horrible" neglectful shelter for many years before the hurricane. These posts tell more about that story. and

    I volunteer at Animal Compassion Network, so somehow it became known that I had rescued Katie's brother. When Katie's owner (the one who adopted her in 2004) had to move to Arizona this year, and had to give up Katie, she took her back to Animal Compassion Network. They knew that I still had Lucky, so..... a happy ending to what could have been a very sad story. I still think Katie misses her former owner. You wish you could explain to them what happened. But, many people say that dogs live in the moment, and do not think of the past, so perhaps I worry about that more than she does. But, she does seem happy here, so that is good!

    Thanks again for visiting my blog, and for all the kind comments!

  14. I love it! What a beautiful dog... reminds me very much of three of ours.

    Christmas will be here before we know it, Sonia!

  15. How fun! Yes, Christmas will be here before we know it. Time to be getting ready!

  16. Dear Sonia,
    Who is the lovely pup?
    Yes, Christmas approaches.
    Sending warm greetings to you and your family.

  17. I love this photo. I want that dog. *sigh*

  18. What a beautiful image Joyful Christmas atmosphere here :) :)

    All the best

  19. So beautiful!!Winter is coming here. Summer for you. Have a great weekend.

  20. The dog is the best part. THanks so much for visiting my blog.

  21. oh that's a cute doggie and a great shot. I'm surprised she didn't wake when you snapped the shutter. thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello, I truly appreciate that. happy day to you!

  22. I finally had time tonight to catch up on my blog reading! I LOVED those rescue stories, and how wonderful that they featured you and Flora. I wrote a comment thanking that person for writing such an article that is likely to encourage others to consider adopting a rescued pet - but then couldn't post it because you have to create an account to comment. Sonia, have you ever heard of the book Dogs and Their Women? It is a wonderful book, one of my favorites - very simple, with photos and captions or short stories. Here's the link, I think used copies are available for cheap.

    Also, if you'd ever be interested, I would love for you to do a "guest post" on my blog about your Flora. Just something that would describe what a special dog she was/is to you, with a photo. It could be light-hearted in nature, something about her that is a fun memory, or something more serious. What do you think?

  23. If I were that doggie I would not like that huge Santa at my back... smile.

  24. Como só vi a foto hoje, acho que ele adormeceu de cansaço por tanto trabalho! A idade não perdôa! Linda foto!
