A Treat and the Posts of the Week

I saw this little interaction between this woman and pooch while out walking the other day. The dog was really hesitant to take the doggie treat which she just happened to have in her pocket. Eventually the pup did accept it and each went on their own way.

Before you head off on your own way, I wanted to let you know that there will be a bit of a treat for you folks tomorrow - in the form of a giveaway. Please be sure to tune in tomorrow morning to read all about it. And of course, there will also be a few photos, as usual.

And now, without further delay, here are the Posts of the week. The icon below is yours for the taking if if your blog post is named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up.

This week's top post is:

at Kcinnova's World

Oh ~ that video was heartwrenching yet also heartwarming! I had to add it to my Latest and Greatest page as well!

Tabor said...

I started reading the links to POTW and forgot to comment. Love this little photo. There are a million stories in that one shot.

Love your picture and the story that goes with it.
Hilary, I am honored beyond words. (Your award even got my husband to watch the video and read the comments!)

I plan to recline in my computer chair and enjoy working my way through your list.

Mental P Mama said...

Wow! Thanks for the props, and I'm off to check out all these guys!

sage said...

Nice photo-one that brings hope

carmilevy said...

I am deeply honored and humbled, Hilary. Thank you so much!

Your photo resonated with me, too. A while back, I captured a scooter-borne lady of a certain age walking her dog. It was such a sweet moment that I had to share it. I'll need to dig it up and share the link. Soon...

Thanks again. You've made my day.

steviewren said...

Thanks Hilary for spotlighting my random photography day. I appreciate the shout out.

messymimi said...

A good pup, he needs to know from his pack leader that it is okay to accept.

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Left you a comment on your previous post! Congrats to the bloggers mentioned here!!! Love, Janine XO

Kat said...

I like the way you've got them in categories now. I forgot to say that last week. :)

I love that photo. You really captured a nice moment from everday life. And the dog got a treat so it's even better.

Unknown said...

Hi Hilary: This sounds of course very intriguing and I want to come back for a look. :) There are so many fine bloggers listed here and I'll have to investigate.

Dave said...

Hilary, I like little daily interest stories, and you have hit this with your elderly lady and the dog picture. Thanks. Dave

Anonymous said...

What a great moment! And thanks for the posts recommendations.

Hilary said...

Thanks kindly, everyone. Your warm comments here and on the POTW blogs are very much appreciated. You folks really are the best. :)

CiCi said...

That is a great photo. I can see the hesitancy in the dog. The colors are clean and sharp. I like that I can't see any of the faces. The dog's owner is looking away and the lady on the scooter is facing forward and the man in front of her is body only. Really great composition.

I will check out the posts you recommend. Hope you are doing well.

Cloudia said...

yay! Thanks!

Bimbimbie said...

The lady reminds me of my lovely old dad - all the local dogs in his area know to stop when he's in the garden, he has a pocketful of dog biscuits and no dog of his own.

Thank you for the mention, I look forward to visiting the other bloggers
you mention*!*

Having watched a few of Nick Vujicic's video, your photo in this post reminds me of him.
