Wagging Wednesday: Porter gets his day

Psst…Don’t forget to enter my Allied Medal Display GIVEAWAY!

If you have followed this blog for a while, you will remember that I once had a beautiful boy named Bailey who I would feature on my blog every Monday.

I called it Muttley Monday.

I hemmed and hawed about how to feature Porter weekly because really Muttley Monday belongs to Bailey in my mind.

I finally settled on Wagging Wednesdays.

Porter’s little stub of a tail wags all the time.  Back and forth. In circles one way, then the other.  He is just a happy dude.  So Wagging Wednesday is completely appropriate for him.

We took a walk last night on a dirt road that I love that runs along the Dead River.  The road is a little muddy, but it is really just a nice walk (a heck of a great run too).

I only dropped the camera in the river once.  That’s pretty good for me.

It is hunting season here in Maine, so we were both decked out in our hunter’s orange.

Um, can I have a Zuke’s treat?

I can’t see the last turn buoy…

I am cleaning off my paws so I can jump in your truck!


Good walk Mom..zzzz

    Both Papa Shanti Bear and Brother Pax do the happy circle wag, the happier they are the faster the circle

    Love the hunter’s orange, Porter seems to be a dog that preaches the message of Safety First!

    Awesome! Porter is the best! Really hoping we get to come out to Maine this year to meet him!

    Man… if only we could teach Frank to clean his paws… he thoroughly enjoys jumping up on me when they are uber muddy 🙁

    Heather made hunter orange bandanas for our monsters for when we hike.

    I am clumsy too… first day I had my new cell phone, scratched the screen from dropping the thing.

    Can’t wait for next wednesday!

    That last photo is how Reba always looks after our walks. Aren’t they so cute then!

  13. Jill says:

    He is soooo cute! And getting soooo big!

  14. Kristin says:

    Love Wagging Wednesday!! Porter is so freaking adorable. I’d love to bring Maggie up there and let them play. Maybe she would learn to stay near me and not chase light, animals, or leaves. She attacked the drain pipe on the house this morning because a chipmunk ran up it. Ugh. Bogey joined it but had no clue why. It was too funny.

    I love that Muttley Mondays stays with Bailey. And I can’t WAIT to see what Waggin’ Wednesdays has in store.. I’ve been stalking your youtube channel. hahaha

  16. Glenn Jones says:

    Awesome! I’m looking forward to Wednesdays now!

  17. Waggin Wednesday it is 😀
    Sending love to Porter (and you) from SoME!!

  18. Anne-Marie says:

    Wagging Wednesday! Love it! Porter is such a cute pup! 🙂

  20. Kevin says:

    Wagging Wednesday! Love it!

    It is a good thing you have that water proof camera. Some people just don’t get along with technology. Sounds like you are in good company with MattyO.

  21. Alexa says:

    Porter is so big and beautiful.. I love him! I would love a dog like him.. unfortunately, my horrible work schedule and tiny studio apartment are just not dog friendly 🙁

  22. Kevin J says:

    He is SO CUTE. I want another one now.


  23. This is great. Thank you for doing a feature post with Porter. I miss Bailey too but it is great to have the opportunity to share the love with Porter and show him a great family from us to you and him.

    And those Zuke’s drive Ginga crazy. Is there hemp in them or something? She’s never gone so nuts for something before in her life.

  24. Marcia says:

    Thank you for this dose of extreme cuteness! I’ll be looking forward to wagging Wednesday’s!

  25. Awww..I love wagging Wednesday! 🙂

  26. shannon says:

    how perfect is that?? LOVE wagging wednesdays. and porter. and you! but that goes without saying 🙂

  27. Great idea. Bailey is forever a piece of you that no matter what will not be replaced. I’m so thankful you have your fur-baby Porter. Bailey would not want you to be without a companion! Hugs to Porter from Cooper!

  28. Big Clyde says:

    Thanks for the great comment today, CT! Right back at you!

    By the way, I loved your posts with Bailey and I am loving the posts on Porter. What a handsome dog!
