Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy Hanging Out With Her Peeps



“Hey, Twiggy. What are you doing?”

“Oh, Hi Dad. Just trying to find an interesting toy to play with.”

“It’s a beautiful day. Why aren’t you outside?”

“For one I don’t have prehensile paws. I need help with the door.”

“Out you go.”

Twiggy, Lucy and Bailey

“Lucy, Lucy, Lucy.”

“Yes, Twiggy. Good to see you out here.”

“What are we doing?”

“I was just going to have a laydown, but now that you’re here, go get your shovel.”

“Okay. I have it. Now what?”

“Bring it over here.”

“Be right there. Here I am. What do I do with it.”

Twiggy Lucy

“If it were me I would chew on it a while.”

“OMG, Mom would have a fit.”

“I know. Makes it all the sweeter.”


“What Bailey?”

“You’re going to get the little one in trouble.”

“Oh yeah? What if I protect her with my life?

“Mom can be pretty persuasive.”

“In any case, I will make a stand.”

“Lucy. You are my hero. You know that?”

“Aw Twiggy. I just think there are some fun things to do that aren’t human authorized.”

“Like what?”

“How do you like to bark?”

“Oh. I love that.”

“Case in point.”

“I have so much to learn. Thanks, Lucy. I see Dad heading this way.”

“I’m laying on the shovel. No one needs to be any the wiser.”

“Got it, Lucy. Bye Bailey.”

“Buy short stuff.”

“You ready to go inside. Twiggy.”

“Aw gee, Dad.”

“Tomorrow’s another day.”

“Where did this monster truck come from?”

“Mom thought you would enjoy it for a change.”

“I’ll thank her at dinner.”

“Good idea. By the way, where’s your shovel?”

“Shovel? What shovel?”

“Been chewing again, huh?”

“Can’t say I know what you are talking about, Dad.”

    It’s so sweet to see the ladies enjoying one another. Who knew a shovel could be a prized possession? Have a great day, John.

    1. Go figure, right? It’s like a kid liking the box a toy comes in. Thanks, Gwen 😀

  2. Oh, gosh, dear John! I did not know that gods liked playing with octopus!!! I wonder what they think it is.

    1. Like everything else they think it is a toy. Thanks, Maria. 😀

      1. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. Never mind the shovel — it’s the interaction among them that’s priceless.

    1. So true. Lucy loves to play. She is so big though, we have to be there. Thanks, Linda

  4. Twiggy’s expression in the third to the last photo is priceless! Loved this John!

    1. Thank you, Jill. Got lucky getting that one. 🙂

      1. It was great. Yesterday, I shared something on your FB page that I thought you’d get a kick out of…at least I think it shared. 🙂

      2. Thank you, Jill. I have to go to Facebook and I miss sometimes. That was a great shot. Thanks. I posted that Twiggy no longer plays with the stops for some reason. She used to but not anymore.

      3. I’m not very skilled with FB, either. I immediately thought of Twiggy. 🙂

  5. Some of Twiggy’s most adorable pics, especially that sixth one.

    1. Thank you, Charles. 🙂

  6. She’s learning so fast. I love the photo of her and Lucy!

    1. Thank you, Dan. Caught a great moment.

  7. Delightful! Always delightful! ♥

    1. Thank you, Billy Ray. 😀

  8. Reblogged this on Words To Captivate ~ by John Fioravanti and commented:
    A priceless episode featuring Twiggy hanging out with her “peeps” by John W. Howell. Please enjoy!

  9. Twiggy’s growing so fast!

    1. So true, Teri. 😀

  10. So cute! I love the photos of her all snuggled up with Lucy 🙂

    1. Twiggy loves to do that. I think Lucy enjoys it too.

  11. Love the pic of Twiggy and Lucy spooning! Happy Almost Friday 🙂

    1. Almost, Marie. Thank you. Happy Friday eve to you. 😀

  12. Priceless, John! Such a treat. Thank you. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Natalie.

  13. Loving the pups. ❤

  14. It is wonderful that your three dogs all get on together so well, John. Our bigger cat swats our little one all the time.

    1. Lucy does a little of that but Twiggy soon learns the behavior that caused it. Thanks, Robbie.

  15. Aw, that photo of Lucy guarding Twiggy is just precious! I’m delighted to see these girls are becoming besties, John!

    1. They are getting used to each other which is a good thing.

  16. These are always so much fun. I love the shot of her fetching the shovel. It shows the zest puppies have for everything.

    1. It is amazing what they can have fun with for sure.

      1. I could probably take a lesson there.

  17. Oh this is so squeeeee! I think my head’s going to explode. ^^’
    It’s always been apparent that Lucy loves Twiggy… but here it’s undeniable. I pity the fool who tries to come between Lucy and her little Twiggy. ❤ Thanks for the lovely moment, in this Twiggy Thursday, John. Hugs!

    1. Thank you, Teagan. I thought the moments were sweet when they happened. Hugs.

  18. John, you’ve got me smiling at your little family of doggies! Twiggy fits right in. She’s so sweet! 🐶Christine

    1. Thank you, Christine.

  19. These fur babies are so much fun! I love Twiggy’s assortment of toys and the dialogue about trying to find something interesting to play with. 🙂 Too cute!

    1. Just like a kid right?

  20. John,

    Lucy protecting Twiggy and showing her the ropes is priceless! She really has forged her placed in the old homestead, tell ya what.

      1. The rookie has earned her spot in the starting lineup!

      2. Ha ha ha. Thaks, Marc. I couldn’t have said it better.

  21. Oh my gosh, how adorable! It looks like Lucy and Twiggy have gotten very close. That’s a big crate of toys Twiggy has—spoil much?😘

    1. Spoil to the hilt. That’s our motto. Thanks, Vashti.

      1. Ha, ha! Mine too. 😉 xx

  22. This is the reason WP needs a “love” button. The girls are adorable. (I love the snuggle pics.)

    1. Thank you, Staci. A love button would be fun. 😀

  23. Oh she’s so adorable, and Lucy and Twiggy cuddled up together is so, so sweet!

    1. Thank you, Deborah. 😀

  24. I love that they’re becoming BFFs. So sweet!

    1. Slowly but surely.

  25. Cuteness (so much!) aside, I imagine you have a real job keeping the big ones from getting too boisterous with Twiggy at times.

    1. Twiggy pretty much stays out of the way when they become outragious. We do have to keep a close eye though. Thank you, Cheryl. 😀

    2. She has learned to get out of their way, but we have to kep a pretty close watch. Thanks, Cheryl. 😀

  26. Twiggy is adorable and I see Lucy and Bailey have taken to her.

    1. They have, Michelle. Thank you.
