Funny Friday Photos: Dogs Rule the Day

Happy Friday to You, 
Happy Friday to You, 
Happy Friday Dear You-ouu, 
Happy Friday to You!

You have officially been serenaded today.

I'm embarrassed to admit I'm still not to 60,000 words, but I've been writing! I've included an excerpt below as proof. Keep in mind it's only first draft, so it'll be better after some more work. I'm starting to really like Edlark, and I feel like I'm cheating on Arden. I guess I would hashtag that as #writerproblems. 

Edlark brushed a feathery kiss across my lips.
“How was that?” he asked.
I opened my eyes. “Not so bad.”
He laughed. “You don’t help my ego, Hazel.”
 “I’m sorry.”
“No need. One more?”
“An audience wouldn't find the first very convincing.”
“Because I didn’t swoon?”
“I wasn’t trying to make you swoon. If I wanted you to swoon, you’d swoon.”
My eyebrow arched. “I think your ego is fine.”
“I’m just saying that I know what I’m good at, and I’m a good kisser. Fairy magic, you know.”
I tilted my head. “Seriously? You have to use magic to make girls swoon.”
“I don’t have to, it just makes the already pleasurable experience of kissing me even more enjoyable.”
He did think highly of himself, didn’t he? “How?”
“Let me show you.”
I remembered the stories I’d heard of Fairies seducing humans. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“You’re afraid?”
“No!” Okay, yes I was. But I wasn’t going to let him know it.
“Then let me show you.”
“Are you daring me?”
“Yes.” He stared deep into my eyes. “It shouldn’t be that big a deal, unless you’re engaged in a relationship with someone else.”
The challenge in his voice was unmistakable, daring me to confess my feelings for Arden.
“Fine.” I shook my hair back, and raised my chin. “Make me swoon.”

Thank you, everyone, who commented last week! We have a winner for funniest of the week, and that photo is:

Here's some new photos:

Could be in the pun section, too.

Totally like my children.

I like turkey bacon, but it definitely doesn't taste anything like bacon.

It's a multi-creature, universal expression.

Still an awesome costume, though.

Punctuation. Get some.

Pun time!

Isn't that sad looking?

I hope everyone has a great weekend. My mom has come to celebrate my birthday with me this weekend, so I anticipate a happy weekend here! I'm going to be working for productive, too.

My favorite was the Cheeto dog, and Boy 1's favorite was the love/hate dog and cat (imagine that.)
Which is your favorite?

Are you ready for the weekend?


  1. Happy Birthday!

    The Cheeto dog gave me a good chuckle too.

    And what are you doing to Arden? Who is Edlark? And why are you tempting Hazel with him???? (Oh, and despite his cockiness, he made me laugh. :) )

    1. Does this mean you might beta-read for me? :D

      Edlark is turning out to be quite a bit of fun. He started out being the straight bad-guy and now...well, you'll just have to see! ;)

  2. Hahaha! The gummy bear skin rug! :D

    1. I kind of want to try to make one, but then the gummy bear just looks so sad like that.

  3. Happy Birthday! And you know I'm partial to the pun on Wales. :P

    And great scene for an excerpt!

    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes and for enjoying the excerpt. :) I wish I was as clever with words as some of these punny-people!

  4. Cheeto dog and Gummy bear rug! Totally agree on the Turkey Bacon. Loved the excerpt--made me remember how much I enjoyed, and miss reading about Hazel. :D

    1. Thanks, Denise! :D What clinched cheeto dog for me was the one stuck to his nose. It just made me giggle. :)

  5. Once, on FB I admitted that I love the kittens and puppies. I do, can't help it. :D So my favourite ones this week are the fur kids when mom's watching and that poor suffering costumed pup. That reminds me, one Halloween I put a sheep costume on my malamute and he so looked like a wolf in sheep's clothing. Poor dog. Was funny though. :D Hope you have a fabulous weekend and loads of time and inspiration to write.

    1. I want to see pictures of your malamute in sheep's clothing! I did have a fun weekend, but it wasn't productive at all. :( I should have known that, with my mom visiting, I'd be spending lots of time doing family things. Which I'm happy to do because my family is very important to me, but I wish I could have written, too.

  6. Not an animal funny, but my favorite was "Eating customers."

    1. It did crack me up a little more than some of the others. It was close behind cheeto dog for me. :)

  7. I love your excerpt, so witty and flirtatious!

    The decision is a tough one. I love the Cheeto dog but the caption is long and confusing. Actually, the eating customers one made me laugh out loud (and then I had to explain it to the curious hubby who always perks up when I laugh at things). So my vote is for eating customers!!

    1. Thanks, Lexa! I'm so excited you liked it. It was kind of scary to post it. :P

      I agree about the caption on cheeto dog, but the one stuck to his nose...


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Please leave your comments below.
