A belated reblog, exactly one month after entering the Year of the Dog [in Chinese Zodiac]. This is actually Hera speaking as I’ve taken over my mom’s computer. She’s so late …grrrrrrrrr!!!!! But it’s my [and all dogs] year, so…
A big hug to my angel Resa and unstoppable tail wags!
Oh, and before I forget, celebrating our year, please remember all the doggies in shelters. I was one too and here I am now speaking to all of you lovely people!!

  2. Well of course I love this post as it includes you and Resa, who are both such amazing women ❀ OH and Hera is the author of it so that’s another reason to celebrate πŸ™‚


    • Ah, Christy, you are so sweet!!!! Yes, Resa is indeed an amazing and so very talented and generous woman! Hera sends many many tail wags and kisses …and love from me! Happy Sunday and week ahead! πŸ™‚ xoxoxo


    • All Resa! She’s awesome …but I know you know that already! Hera is blushing and she sends kisses [albeit somewhat slobbery! πŸ˜‰ ] Thank you, my dear Charlie. Happy weekend! πŸ™‚


  3. Hi Hera, this is Copper “speaking” not my mom, Lauren. So, I just have to say that you did a great job, and Cheers to a year for dogs. Hey, I was adopted, too, and now I have the best family. πŸ™‚ You are a beauty, by the way, πŸ˜‰ and also lucky to have such an awesome mom! I’m sending lots of kisses to you, and my mom sends hugs to your mom. Bye for now, I mean, “Woof!”

Sending you many many kisses and hugs to you and your mom while wagging tail!!!

Three woofs to that! and again more love to you and mom!!!! 🐾xoxoxoxoxo

  5. How wonderful, Marina, er I mean Hera!!! Year of. the Dog is a perfect time to head to a shelter and find a puppy of dog! If one is not a dog person, take home a cat or two. So much love is needed.
    Thank you, again Hera!!!!
    PS> Don’t forget to give your mommy her computer back! πŸ˜€

  6. I’m in love with Hera😍 As well as being the queen of beauty, she writes a great blog post. And the pics are wonderful. Thanks so much for putting a big smile on my faceπŸΎπŸ’•πŸΎπŸ’•πŸΎ


  7. Hera knew exactly how to pose in that first photo, Marina. She’s even more beautiful next to those gorgeous pillows. And isn’t she clever to have initiated this post. A little self-promoting–Year of the Dog–but since I’m a dog lover, I enjoyed it thoroughly! πŸ™‚


    • She’s a natural, what can I say!!!! πŸ˜‰
      The promoting bit was Resa’s kindness who had the idea of creating this beautiful post honoring the Year of the Dog, in the first place! Of course, Hera jumped for joy! We both thank you for your lovely words and send our hugs! πŸ™‚

  8. My computer just told me that you, Hera, are Queen of the Gods. There must be some mistake– I thought that was your mother… πŸ˜• I see you have one of your mom’s pillows on which to rest your head. Very good– an important Olympian like you deserves the best… πŸŽ©πŸ†πŸ¨πŸš€πŸŒ–πŸ’₯πŸš‘πŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ˜Š


    • Oh, but, dear sir, it is I, Hera who is the Queen of Gods and most definitely the Queen of this house! My mom is simply my servant. Those pillows she made them for me of course but I have granted her permission to use them in her shop. I am generous that way! Sending happy regal tail wags and woofs!!! 🐾 Wait, ambrosia too: 🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨
