Instagram & Porschea's Peanut Butter Parley

Greetings all. My daughter took this photo of Porschea the perfect puppy in our back yard next to her new fence. She loves to run carefree in the yard without being chained up. Vanessa, our youngest daughter, had downloaded some application for her phone . It was free.  It can’t get any better than that right! Do you want to know the name of the application? It’s called Instagram.  I’ve not tried to download it yet so I can’t tell you my experience.

She took this photo on her phone and then text it to me. Sure does look like a professional shot doesn’t it! I want to print this out and frame it. That is on my 1,000 things to do this week list! We all have one of those right?  

Porschea’s hair gets tangled and knotted easily. She hates me pulling the long hair on her backside and legs  when I brush her . In fact she thinks it’s fair game to tug on my shirt sleeve or pants leg when I’m tugging on her hair. So I’ve developed a method that works for the both of us. I call it Porschea’s Peanut Butter Parley. I get a soft hairbrush and squirt it down with a detangler called I (Heart) PET HEAD FUR BALL StrawberryYogert Detangling Spray. Then I take a large spoonful of peanut butter and smear it on the refrigerator door. She falls for licking the peanut butter every time. I read this tip somewhere. This idea didn’t originate with me. I am able to take care of the knotty situations on her legs and hind end without fighting for my sleeve or pants or shoes. Plus I’m able to positively praise her for being a “good girl” and I save a special treat after I’m satisfied with her hair do. This is exactly what she and I did today not knowing that Vanessa would be here to take her photo shoot. I’m so glad I took the time for she looks absolutely beautiful in the Instragram shot above.

These other photos were fun to shoot too. Porschea had been lounging on the deck and saw me pulling a treat out of her drawer .She had to come in and investigate…and hope. I can report that she was the perfect lady as far as not steeling her treat. It was quite the temptation though for her to be that close to her treat and not even lick it! She is my perfect puppy! She makes me laugh.


  1. Porschea is not only the perfect puppy, she is the most beautiful puppy. I always love seeing her picture.

    I don't know what Instagram is exactly, but my Kinship kid has it on her phone and she was sending stuff on it all night the other night. Technology! It is good and bad, isn't it?

  2. Hi Chris, yes she is a beautiful puppy. I'm asking Vanessa to send her puppy's photos over so I can post them too! He is georgeoous! Yes technology is a bugger and a blessing!!

  5. Beautiful puppy. Cracks me up seeing her nose so close to her snack.

  6. I've owned other dogs in the past who would have grabbed that snack and ran!! She is a good girl. Though I don't think I could trust her with a plate of my dinner if I left the room!! Especially steak!! We only feed her dog food but she loves the smell of steak!!
