Being Wordless With the Word of the Year

Did you hear what the Oxford Dictionary said the word of the year is for 2013? 



Yep, "selfie." Just be thankful it wasn't "twerk."
Okay, between this post and the one the other day, that's probably enough selfies. Will try to cut back in 2014. (And trust me... you will never see twerking here. Ever.)

Look how wordless I was!!

In Other Wee News...
I was way wordier over HERE on the lovely Barbara Techel's blog. (You might remember Barbara from her visit earlier this year with her adorable guest post entitled Poop Happens.) Now she's invited me for a chat! Please stop by if you have a minute. We chatted about special-needs pups, where I get my sense of humor, and my new book, among other things. And be sure to also check out the cute new addition to her house - Gidget! You folks -- especially you Doxie lovers! -- are going to fall in love with Gidget! 


Happy (mostly) Wordless Wednesday!

    1. Yeah, I think our selfies would be better if Rita would hold the camera!

    1. I almost didn't share this one - I look terrible (no makeup! Gah!) but Rita looks so cute, I had to share it for that.

  3. Ha! I'm a bit disappointed that the word of the year isn't twerk. There's always next year!

    1. Maybe if we all do a whole lot more twerking, it could be the word next year!

      Or not....

  11. You do have a great sense of humor!

    I think the two could be combined....you know? A "selfie twerk" ! But you won't see one of those on my blog either!

  15. We tried the selfie this weekend. Someone didn't like it and got up off the couch. I'll give you one guess. :-)

  16. I am soooooo sorry twerk wasn't the word of the year. I would pay money to see you and Rita showing off your junk. :)

  17. Dog selfies are the best selfies.

  18. Oh my...the word of the year? Really? Thankfully mom doesn't do too many selfies-she's too busy taking pics of our cute faces :) And if she does have a pic of herself, she has someone else take it and she generally has a puppy in it.

  19. Too funny. I don't really get it. Never seen a selfie yet that really flattered the subjects. Not that you and Rita don't look fantastic in yours ;). As for twerking -- also not a pretty picture; thinking it's a big no-no for women with Hanten hips.

  20. Love the selfie's! I just started my blog, and joined wordless Wednesday!
    Love your blog!

  21. Hmmm...not so into selfies at our house, but interesting that it was the chosen word!

    ReplyDelete
  22. hehehe I did hear that yesterday. I need to be more clever like you and run with something I hear like that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great post- like the dry and the wet, and always like a selfie. Must admit used to have twerking on my dance blog and love dancing dogs (or canine freestyle to be formal). MNNN.. X Talent Hounds

    ReplyDelete
  24. That was great....it really made me laugh! Both of you are too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahaha laughing! I heard that this morning. Funny!

  26. i was so upset about "selfie" being the word of the year because I can't stand that word! There was a debate on The Today Show about whether or not photos with more than one person (or animal) are "selfies"....I believe they inferred that "selfies" are just photos of ourselves but who cares? lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think I am really glad this year's word isn't twerk! I am SO not a fan of selfies, at least of my own...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Selfie?? Really?? Thanks for the informative post!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Selfie? I wouldn't have guessed that one! Don't think I've ever taken a selfie! :)

    I hope you're having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
