She's Totally Lost It

Mom was checking out ebay again and discovered a painting that she swears is Mitch! Both mom and dad would bet money that the artist discovered a photo on our blog and used it! Tell us what you think? We've emailed the artist to see if she'll tell us what doggie's picture she painted from. I hope she tells us!Mitch couldn't believe that this handsome doggie could possibly be him!

At one point he even decided to taste it! Mom almost freaked! hehehe

Today was rainy and yucky and while mom was cooking Mitch decided that WE should play tug! He first tried to stare me down!

That didn't work so now he's biting at my collar trying to get me all riled up!
It always starts out so sweetly. He nips gently! See his foot touching my foot? This ALWAYS means trouble!

I really don't want to play - I'd much rather watch mom and make sure that she doesn't drop anything! I need to be close by so that I can be the first one to snatch it! Mitch is really being insistent!

Well, okay! You asked for it!

Blue awarded us the best blogging buddy award. She said that we're long standing Airedale friends! awwwwwwwwwww, thank you so much, Blue! We are so honored! You're one of our best friends and your blog is one of our most favorite blogs to visit.

We're going to pass this award onto Putter and Bogie and Stanley and Stella!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Good evening maggie.
Ebay sells a wonderful picture.

Jessie, Jake and Lola said...

We think the picture looks like you too - don't forget to blog when you get an answer.

PS we want a bit of the picture too.

Sophie Brador said...

Maggie, It's exhausting! I know exactly what that's like, when you have to play bitey head all the time. It's so frustrating.


Harry said...

Gosh, that does look like Mitch. The people who run the Planet Airedale site that we go on lots (you should join up, it's a lovely bunch of Dale's and their humans) have had quite a few problems with people stealing their photos to use for paintings and advertising.

The Army of Four said...

Wowzers, that DOES look like Mitch!
People should ask before using photos - I'm just sayin'.
I'd LOVE to come over and play with you guys!!!
Play bows,

Ferndoggle said...

Wow that looks a lot like Mitchy! Lola tries to get me to play tug all the time too but she gets in big trouble when she bites my collar.


Deetz said...

Mum was cooking and he didn't want to stand by her feet and have a starring contest with her....thats crazy.
That picture sure looks alot like him....

Anonymous said...

things took an ugly turn there at the end, huh Maggie? Mitch just doesn't know when to back off - it's a rookie mistake for sure.

Petra said...

Congrats on the award! And yes, I'd say that picture is definitely Mitch. Isn't ebay fun? You can find such awesome things on it. I hope you find out the answer to your question.

Moco said...

That painting really does look like Mitch.
You go girl and show him who is in charge. None of that upstart nonsense. We Alpha girls have to show the brothers who is boss.

Deetz said...

Thank you Maggie and Mitch. You guys are very cute too. I wish my ears didn't stick up like they do. They have been kinda freaky looking lately. One sticks up and the other lays over my eye....Its really weird.

Emily and Ike said...

Awesome painting! It sure does look like Mitch!

Mack said...

Maggie, I think you had the right idea. Sometimes being near Mom when she cooks can really pay off!

Sid said...

That painting sure is pretty!
I don't have to wear a lampshade, but mom is thinking about it because I have been licking!!

William Tell said...

That painting sure does capture Mitch, doesn't it!

And being a younger pup myself, I understand the need to prod the bear once in a while to stir up a game of tug. :)

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Sharon said...

Well, I can see why you might think the painting is of you. You are so good looking! Your picture as you are sneaking through the dooe shows how cunning you are.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

That pictures closely resembles Mitch for sure! I bet artist found his pictures, fell in love with Mitch, then painted him!

My human's brother (my other uncle)has a friend that paints dogs and sells them on ebay...I think I'm going to be painted soon! Woohoo for being still art!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Sure that doggie looks like Mitch! I think your mom and dad are right about their guessing!
Congratulations on your award!
Kisses and hugs

the Corgi Girls said...

That really look like Mitch! Any reply from them yet?

Girl Girl Hamster said...

That doggie in the painting sure looks like Mitch. You're so nice to play with him. :)

Dexter said...

Ah yes, I sometimes have to use my fierce bitey face too when junior gets to thinkin he can have MY toys.

I don't know about that painting. You guys all look the same to me (does that make me a dogist or something)?


Snowball said...

The dog in the painting really look like Mitch. I think its really him. I wonder if the artist will answer to the email your mum sent her.


Misadventures of Widowhood said...

I love the painting! I hope the artist tells your mom if it really is you. I don't think that using a photo as a basis for a painting is the same thing as stealing an actual photo to use for commercial purposes. If you find out differently, let us all know. My mom painted a portrait of the dog they had before me. It's pretty cool. Cooper

Josie said...

Maggie & Mitch,
My mommy has noticed you wear doggy bandanas quite a lot. She wanted me to ask you if your mommy makes them for you or if she buys them or if someone else makes them for you?

Stanley said...

Hey, Maggsie & MItchMan!

Congratulations on your award, and thanks for passing it on to us! You were one of our first friends on DWB, so it means a LOT coming from you guys.

That painting looks TOTALLY like Mitch. Let us know what the artist says.

Maggsie, I feel your pain. Stella is ALWAYS at me to play with her, even after I make her chase me all over the yard to wear her out. Sometimes a dog just wants to be alone, ya know? I know you know.

Goober love & sympathetic smooches,

Amber-Mae said...

Oooh, looks exactly like Mitch! Maybe it IS him! I bet the artist just can;'t resist Mitch's good looks that she just had to paint him...Great award you got there!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Josie said...

So glad you let me know your mom makes your bandanas! Now, my mommy wants to know if she just cuts a 22X22 square and hem the sides? My mommy sure is getting pushy with these questions!!

Sid said...

My mommy and daddy are having pizza tonight too! And sometimes, when mommy doesn't feel like eating the crusts, I get them too!!

Isis said...

Hey i finally did the tag!

Hope to be posting a bit more!

btw, that painting is great!

Charlie said...

You teach him Maggie! There's a time to play and a time to watch for food to get dropped.

Clover said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch!
What a beautiful painting! I hope you get an answer soon about the inspiration for it...
Love Clover xo

CoCo said...

That painting has to be Mitch. They even have the exact same shadowing on top of the ear.

I love tug-o-war too! I always have to win. You two are too cute!


Bella said...

How amazing is that to find such an identical painting !!
I'm not into tug-o-war either, I much prefer kitchen patrol.

The Zoo Crew said...

that sure is a look-alike painting....very cool!!!
