barney


I
spent Thanksgiving at my girlfriend's parents' house. It was just the four of us and her brother & sister-in-law. Oh, and Barney.

That's him over there on the left.

I took a few pictures of him but the best two are represented here. Which one do you like better? Ears up or down? LOL

Women can be really funny about how their hair looks but Barney seemed pretty willing to have his ears do anything they pleased. If only women were so compliant... I'd have some VERY interesting pictures since hair can be even funnier than ears.



If you're wondering why Barney looks so vigilent, it was partially due to the strong scent of turkey and pork in the air--and of course because he's a very friendly fellow and always willing to put on a show for a little attention. And man can that dog jump!

He looks a lot more serious with his ears down, doesn't he? And those serious soulful eyes!

I vote for ears down.

Yes--he looks more thoughtful with the ears down. Ears up says "gimme food."

Love the dog! We just got two lab puppys (6 wks) yesterday. I keep wanting to post new pics. Visiting via Michele's....
Pearl said…
Yep, Barnie's adorable. Those are eyes a person could trust. He looks more puppyish with his ears down don't you think?

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Michele sent me but you were next on my visiting rounds in any case, doncha know?

I'm in love with Barney!

Ears up or down, he's adorable!!!
Ear up he looks adorably quirky! Ears down, you're correct, the serious Barney. But his fur is so shiny, it really makes him look well manicured. So I'd have to say the soulful serious Barney is my favorite. :-)

He's *adorable*! Ears up he's like, "Hiya! Whatcha got? Share please? Gimme???" Ears down it's like, "Awwww...I wanted some of that!"

If I were thinking of getting a dog (which would tick the cats off to no end) I would totally want him...

Here via Michele's this time :)

Definitely down. I think ears up makes any dog looked all riled up and ready to cause mayhem. :-)
Angie said…

Here through Michele, but getting the chance to see a cute dog never hurts either.:)

He's cute, not matter which way his ears fly. Up, he looks like a feisty, full-of-energy little guy. Ears down, he looks like "Mr. Innocence." It's certainly nice to be able to pull off both those looks.

Ears down, hands down. That picture makes my heart melt. I am so very much a dog person. It's only a matter of time...

wow i hate dogs and even *i* think barney is a cutie. i'd go with ears up, tho. down is just to pitiful a look to credit - the same puppy dog eyes i used to give to my parents when i couldn't have ice cream without finishing dinner first.
Erin said…
Oh! How sweet! Ears down. I'd eat him right up! LOL!
Michelle said…
I'm an ears up kinda gal...he is cute!
Adorable doggie. (I'm a dog person through and through.) I like both pics, but the one with the ears up caught my eye, reminding me of how expressive a dog's ears are.

It was just the 4 of us for Thankgiving, but it was still great. I already love 3-T's blog as a regular reader for quite a while. This guest posting thing is new but interesting.

He's pretty cute for a woofie. I think ears down though, he looks less like he wants to chase me that way......
Tara said…
Flappy dog ears just cost me about $700. So I vote for down. And sewn into place. Dogs tht flap their ears around get blood blisters, apparently, and the only way to fix it is surgery.
I know, not the question, but it was only on Tuesday that I had to fork out the money, so it's still raw.
But it a cute dog, though. What breed(s). (Not that I'm implying that his mom is a whore, but you know how dogs are)

Compliant? Oh boy... if the little lady reads this, you'll be walking around with your tail between your legs. LOL!

Hello from Michele's! I already left a comment, but man I still think the ears down is too cute!

Have a great day!
Kyahgirl said…
awww, he's cute either way. Just want to give him a cuddle.

Ears down...

But that isn't Barney...Barney is Purple, and a Dinosaur to boot ;oD
Ditsy Chick said…
he's cute, cute, cute...ears down though, I have always liked ears down on dogs...
Ciera said…
Do your ears hang low, do they wobble to and fro.......he's a cute dog....he looks almost sad with his ears down though...and hyper with his ears up!
Diane Mandy said…
Yep, ears down already!! Was there even a question?
Ahamed Iqbal said…
Ears down in the house, ears up outside (so he can look tougher to the other dogs).
Yaeli said…
He needs more starch in his ears if you want them to stick up properly!
Is this the dog that caused you to hurt your ankle?
