    Marcia- I love the photo of you and the puppies- one of the few times we see you slowing down. I think this would be an awesome one for the Emergency Vet Hospital- the people/animal interaction and love is so poignant… As always, great work…

  2. Christi Lingard says:

    My favourite pic is Archie, testing out the new mattress. Kittens cannot let anything new go by without their inspection, ever… :o)

  3. Danica says:

    Oooh, favorite pic of the week. It’s a tie between the adorable spotted Britty with the “place kiss here” forehead or Little Dude’s morning yawn (he has lovely clean teeth, btw). Oh, and the dog sledding which looks like a BLAST! Jealous! I’m going with the dog sledding, something I’ve always wanted to try because it makes me smile and dream.

  4. Shannon Hutchinson says:

    LD yawning is my favourite. Many a morning I roll over to a face full of tongue and teeth; and don’t forget the whimper after!
    He has an awesome set of teeth to show off, all the power to him πŸ˜‰

  5. Marcia – I’m new to your blog (thanks, Lori) and spent an enjoyable cup of coffee browsing. Nice work. My favourite of your posted pictures this week is Britty – great DoF (nice bokeh), nice colour palette (what I like to call “monochromatic colour”), and perfect pose (a face only a mother could love presented so all can love). I look forward to seeing upcoming posts

  6. Sandra Moffat says:

    Oh…. am I allowed two?! I just don’t know how to pick between puppy’s first outing and lazy Sunday … hee hee, that one reminds me so much of my time with me being a kitty bed! Just love it!!!

  7. It’s a toss up between pooping puppy and the big yawn, but I think I’ll have to go with “Deep Throat” – unusual and dramatic photo!

  8. Pam says:

    I love the snowsledding picture. I love the composition of it – the boots, the dogs and the scenery. Great shot!

  9. Debby Marandola says:

    Oh..it’s really tough..a toss up between the new mattress and the yawn! I love the new mattress because it shows how close your gang is getting. I recall the first few posts of when you brought Archie home and the various “conflicts” between him and the rest of them! The mattress picture implies a common ground of togetherness and family! The yawn…my oh my..my sister has two jacks and she was telling me how Bruno yawns so wide that it looks like his jaw is going to crack off! So this picture makes us smile when we see it and reminds us of our love for those jacks!

  10. Lara says:

    Definitely the mattress. πŸ™‚

  11. Jen Moore says:

    Definitely LD’s big yawn! Reminds me of the big bad wolf in Little Red Riding Hood! The rest of the shots tie for close 2nd though! Keep shooting! We love your photographs!

  12. Sarah Parker says:

    LD’s open mouth first thing in the morning! Love it because it’s so candid and funny at the same time. You also captured the point-of-view so well – I can imagine how crazy it’d be to open your eyes each morning and see that!

  13. Jules Pereira says:

    I may be the only one to say it – and I do love all the other photos – but my favourite is of the puppy’s first ‘movement’ outdoors.. ha.
    I can’t get over the sheepish look on it’s face and the composition of it (with the turd out of focus).
    I have always wanted a dog (i have 2 cats) and that little woodlet has me wanting me one even more!
    Always a pleasure to see your photos and read your posts. I’m a huge fan!


    Its gotta be the 4 critters asleep on the new mattress! I go through this myself every night! I love it! There’s nothing like having proof that other people go through it too!

  15. Anne says:

    It is a tie between all of them on the new mattres; how peaceful they look. That would be the day that Scooby would lie peacefully with a cat. And the other picture with Little Dude’s big yawn, that is a classic morning look but man can he stretch.

  16. jessica says:

    I like the pooping puppy because everybody poos and this is a testament to that. they should reprint the “everybody poops” book with your photo as the cover.

  17. MaryLou Fletcher-McCormick says:

    Puppy poop, the new mattress, the yawn, and a belly full of puppies…they are all my favourites. If I really had to pick one it would be puppy poop. The expression on the pups face is awesome.

  18. Megan says:

    Definitely the Ginger gang all on your new bed. With no room for you!! Gotta love animals πŸ™‚

  19. Lydia G says:

    I like
    it’s official! the new mattress has been 100% approved by The Ginger Gang…

    … because i have always dreamed of getting a dog and having my cats become such good friends that they would sleep together and i would take a 100 pictures of it.
    But alas it cannot be. We do have a dog now (Alaskan Malamut – 1 year) and 3 cats. 2 of my cats wont really go near the dog so rarely come downstairs. My oldest cat (almost 13) is too old to want to play with sharp teeth.
    I love the fact that you can prove that all animals can get along together in the right environment. That its the way we treat our animals that reflect the calmness they have

  20. Julie Searles says:

    Its a tie, I love the puppy poop picture and Britty’s Birthday shout out!

    The puppy poop picture is great because of the “I did something bad” look on the little puppy’s face.

    Britty’s picture because of the crooked smile, very cute!

  21. Naomi says:

    i heart the yawning & pooping ones, but the one that really made me gasp was the sledding shot. you are just that lucky! it makes me want to harness up our lab/rott mix, pitbull mix and beardie mix to a sled & race around our neighborhood! πŸ™‚

  22. Heather Leughmyer says:

    Puppy’s first poop in the snow is my favorite because of it’s originality and the look on the puppy’s face. Priceless.

  23. Valerie Risk says:

    My favourite is the puppy’s first poop. That pup is just too cute!

    I also really like the Happy Birthday Britty! Such a cute expression with the teeth showing.

  24. Jackie P says:

    love the mattress moment! all are great though!

  25. Jessica S says:

    I love the yawning photo, it’s so like Cain!

  26. Sandra Magill says:

    You already know my favorite – Puppy poop:) Love the look on that sweet guy’s face.

  27. Megan says:

    My favourite picture is the one of the ginger gang on your new bed as it so reminds me of my family. Our three ginger cats often take over our entire king size bed.
