Color Me Black & White

There are times when fear is good. It must keep its watchful place at the heart’s controls.

~~ Aeschylus, first of three Ancient Greek Tragedian and often described as the Father of Tragedy, 525/524 BC – 456/455 BC


Keep your fears to yourself but share your courage with others.

~~ Robert Louis Stevenson, Scottish Novelist, Poet, Essayist, and Travel Writer, 1850 - 1894

Hey everybody! I am so excited! It's October so that means SNOW is just around the corner!

Porgy, look around. In a month or two all this will be covered in a beautiful white snowy blanket. Bliss.

*yawn. Time to go dream of my snowy heaven! See ya' later Porgy.

*dreamy snooze...


ack! ack!

Back to me...


What just happened?

Hey...where did all my color go?

I know who did this. The Halloween ghosties, ghoulies, and goblins.

Curses! Give me back my color!

Every October the Halloween ghosties, ghoulies, and goblins mess with me. I never know what to expect from them but taking my color is a low blow. I feel so two-dimensional without my color. They say when you are really afraid all the color drains out of you. Since I have no more color I guess I will just drain away to nothing. I'm just sayin'...

Oh no, you are too beautiful to be two dimensional! How are you feeling? Hope you get your snow really soon!

Parsley said...

You look great with or without color...regal in fact!

Hi Suka it's lovely to hear from you.

Suka, we too think you still look lovely in black and white - your natural beauty cannot be filtered out, even if the colours can.
Oh, and did you know, one of Gail's friends spotted some new snow on top of Scottish hill earlier this week. Winter is definitely on its way here too.
Toodle pip!

You mean those ugly things messed with your camera... Well, I suppose it is better than having to deal with being called a girl, right?

Why isn't Porgy flying?

By the way, we missed you, buddy!

Lovable Lily said...

Hi Suka,
Thanks for stopping by to see me. Its been a while since I've seen you too (sorry 'bout that!).

I actually don't mind the snow too much. In fact I like running in the deep snow instead of walking on the shovelled off areas. Now Muffin, forget it. She hates the snow.

I'm sure it will be snowing shortly for you. I have a cousin named Pluto (but she's a girl). She is an beautiful Husky that loves the snow also. She is looking forward to lots of snow this year.

Glad to see you're doing well!

Come on, my friend, you are tougher than a few ghosties and ghoulies! Where is your Mighty Suka-ness? We are sending you a little White Dog Army boost of positive thinking and invincibility...now go out there and demand your color back...your FULL color!

THEN you can go back to dreaming of snow...

Hey Suka, Jet here. Hi Miss K.

Oh you look so comfy and contemplative of the snow to come!

Porgy's a cutie...

The same thing happens to us, all the color drains out on Sundays... hmmmm...

Peggy Frezon said...

Hope it snows for you soon...that will bring your color back!

Mollie said...

I'm not sure about if you've been spooked, we have done 100's. I will nab a photo and pop you on tomorrow :) xx00xx

Missy@dawsondogs said...

You definately are a snow dog looking forward to it.

FiveSibesMom said...

Suka, it just warms my heart to see your beautiful smiling face! Keep strong, our friend!

Love all the pics...and we are so with you, we want s*n*o*w!!!

Cotton said...

You look great in black & white. Oh well, you always look great

haopee said...

How do you do it with Porgy? Do you just cut his feathers?

I remember my mom would do that to the duckies so that they won't fly. They have a very big pond to live in but she makes sure they don't fly over the fences.

Huggies and Cheese,


Katie and Cocco said...

Suka, you've been pretty quiet. We miss you! We have a little something on our bloggy for you :-)
Oink oink,

Jeanne Pursell said...

We think you look just great in color OR in black and white!! Looking forward to the snow!!

Alfie said...

Suka! I'm sure you are looking forward to the snow! I'm so glad it doesn't snow here! I think I would die! I start shivering when my people open the window in the morning. Rumor has it that my mom was a Chihuahua. I wouldn't be too shocked.

I know how you feel about the ghoulies taking away your color! Every so often my alter-ego, "Green Alfie" takes over. I'm glad he hasn't stopped by lately.

Hope you have a wonderful Hallowoof!
