Nose 2 -- Chewbakka

So laid back, what a life...had to capture the curled up moment, and how nice he looks with those colors. He needs to be groomed, but don't like to do it in the winter. Maybe just a little trim and detailing. Can you imagine that traditionally, this breed wears it's hair grown out and dragging on the floor? Really.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

His fur is multi-coloured...and such a cutie too ! Grooming...well, it's a bonding thing. :O)

@janina: Precious trusting little fur covered creature. I can rarely walk past with out telling him I love him and gently scratching between his ears or that sweet belly. He tolerates that I scoop him up, can't resist, and cuddle him like a baby. He goes, "mrrrfff," and lies in my arms trustingly. I believe they are a simple and very clever manifestation of God.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

He looks very nice !

Don't go changing, to dry and rinse him
He never let you down before
Don't imagine he's too groomed
And you don't see him anymore.
You would not leave him, in times of trouble,
You never could have come this fur,
You didn't take the groom times, you won't take the bath times,
You'll take him just the way he is.

@Hiro: Thanks Hiro! I like this poem obviously from a human who knows the holy worth of dogs. As they love and accept unconditionally their masters, we could learn to do some with one another. Imagine true peace and tolerance.

@gootchai: Yes, the eye contact is special capture. Thank you.

In winter they need their fur. Imagine mine is white and it is hard to keep him clean when it is cold but I don't mind. His health is more important. Yours seems to have a good life too. Have a nice day both of you (well and the other one too of course).

@Sido: This one goes walking and comes back with snow balls and or mud on his feet. The other is always clean. The odd couple. I should brush them everyday and I forget. They never complain, do they? What gifts dogs are.

Oh, such a cute photo of Chewie just lounging around, and that dappled light on him is wonderful. I just love the way he's using the pillow - our Kaylee dawg does the same thing. :-)

@Jason Politte: He has no idea how cute he is even though I tell him constantly, and yes, has his head on that pillow which is so well, funny, it drew me to him that morning. Sometimes this breed can lay flat, belly down, like a carpet, too. I try not to scoop them up and hug them too much. This one never complains, but Wookie, tomorrow's post, lets me know it's corny and growls ever so lightly. He's proud. I apologize and kiss his little head anyway.

Chewbakka is clearly aware of your thoughts. Look at his eye. Cute animal and image.

@Francisco Romero: Yes I think you are correct, and that is what drew me to him, that watchfulness. Thanks Francisco. Like your completed view posted today. My fear of heights somehow resolved. :)

A fine shot of this curled up little doggie. What a cute shot! Very well done.

Adorable and "awww" (my instant reaction) : I love seeing animal friends that are well-loved. Thank you for sharing the cute woof.

@Rick: When I was three, I remember we had a German shepherd named Woof, and I shared his canned food with him on the porch one day. It was Dr. Ross dogfood. I might have replied with this the last time you called a dog image a "woof." :-D I miss that big creature. One day he didn't come home. In those days they roamed free. Not leashed or held captive in yards. Very Norman Rockwell.

A cute portrait…

@Calusarus: Yes he is. Thanks Mr. C.

Karen Politte from Conway, AR, United States

what a great portrait of this little guy! Looks more like an Ewok to me............

@Karen Politte: Doesn't he? You know they used Shih Zhus to design Ewoks? Tomorrow's post will make you go awww.

I identify with Chewbakka's coat and need for trimming. Our Malti-Poo is in the same 'boat'. Right now she is wearing a knit sweater because we're having a below freezing few nights. They are a strong magnet for our loving touches and cuddling, and what would life be without them?

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks for the share. We belong to the "fuzz bucket doggy club" I think. There is no experience like sharing life with these loving creatures. Malti- poo sounds like a cutie. Give kiss from me.

ohhhhh you probably are not aware just how adorable and how cute you are, Chewbakka!

@Photographs by M.E.: :-) I think you are right, except he lets me roll him, gush all over him, and he tolerates my cuddling him like a baby. I cannot resist though I try. He's a good sport.
