A Wee-nsy Temptation

ink & watercolour weensy meep miniature, 3.5" x 2.5" [9 x 6.5cm] ACQUIRE A MEEP

I'm working on being more decisive.  So is this puppy dog.  Will he choose the hydrant?  Or will he choose the kitty.  Hydrant?  Kitty?  She is wisely distancing herself from any potential embarrassment while he makes up his mind...

A basket of pastries, on the other hand, would make life so simple.


  1. Judging from the behavior of my curs, I vote for the pink hydrant.

  2. I hope he goes for the hydrant. He's too cute to go after the kitty. :D

  3. Hopefully the hydrant, so he doesn't get in trouble for chasing kitty.
    I like how the door seems to be laughing -- a door with attitude :)

  4. We certainly don't want him to go after the cat because the felines always win these fights. You're right about the pastry, Shell.

  5. Definitely Kitty!! He has that sort of smug look on his face, but I think after giving her the cold shoulder he will relent because he really does like Kitty and after all pink hydrants are cold and metallic to the touch!!

  6. Hiker ~ really??? Sorry, I tried, but my surprise is clearly feigned.

    Amy ~ the hydrant already seems a popular choice. And this pup does look the gentle type.

    Ms M ~ a laughing door ~ I love that you see that!

    Petrea ~ pastries seem the safest option in so many circumstances!

    Dianne ~ the hydrant may fill an immediate need, but I doubt he can resist the kitty forever.

  7. "I can resist everything but temptation." Oscar Wilde and this pup have a lot in common. I am happy to report that dogs and cats can get along. Sometimes much better than people . . .

  8. Have to agree with Petrea. I've seen a 10-pound cat go after a 120-pound dog (the cat had kittens)—guess who came out on top! The dog isn't considering either of those options, I say. Like us, he's dreaming of unseen (or, in his case, un-smelled) pastries.
    BTW, have you been by Venice Daily Photo yet today?

  9. If there were only a squirrel. Then it would be easy.

  10. My first visit to your blog, coming from Pierre's Vienna blog. Delightful; I'll come back for more!

  11. Yes, I sure did see the Venice Daily Photo, you little star you!!! Congratulations. It's so neat to see you and your work pop up there. Brava! And, ciao, bella.

  12. Cali ~ my sister's family has a dog and cat, and they love each other to pieces, even though they do chase each other around the house like mad things.

    Thanks, Alexa ~ I hadn't yet made my daily visit to Pierre's place, so what a lovely surprise!!

    Margaret ~ squirrels have a way of uncomplicating things.

    Hi, Kate ~ thanks so much for dropping in and saying Hello. I'm happy you've enjoyed your visit!

    Yvonne ~ {blush} Grazie, bella!

  13. Now what has happened to that basket of pastries? I've been looking everywhere for it? (That was me, not the pup!)
    Lovely little meep, Shell.

  14. Thanks, MmeB! And he does look puzzled, now that you mention it. :)

  15. Oh he'll do the hydrant. What dog can resist??

  16. Virginia ~ none of them, so it seems. :)
