Update: Your cohosts this week are Diann @ Of Goats and Greens and Shinta @ Caramel Tinted Life. Sorry for the confusion earlier.
Time is moving even faster in 2018. Do you feel it? It’s already almost mid-January!
The good thing is, at this rate, it’ll probably be spring next week. Then summer the following week.
I can live with that. I live for summers. That’s when I don’t have to go to work, and therefore life begins.
If only I could be so lucky as to have summer year-round, sigh…
As it is, even though time seems to fly right this moment, usually some time in May, it just stops and refuses to go anywhere… Why is that?! Please let me know if you have the answer.
I have another question needing an answer. Do dogs cry happy tears? Look at this photo here of my Skye.
She was overwhelmed when we came back from our California trip and was so excited when we picked her up from her sitter’s house. But it was her reaction when she realized she was back home that was priceless.
She ran around the yard several times while barking and yelping at the same time, rolled around on the grass, and sniffed all the bushes before going inside. Then she jumped into her bed. That’s when we noticed her tears. Aaw…

Spicy Vegan Gobi Kurkuri from Vanitha @ Curry and Vanilla

Hello, Angie! You are right, time is moving too fast.? Btw, I think there is a problem with the InLinkz button??
Now, the button is okay.?? And Skye’s reaction was so heart warming. She’s so pretty! Happy Fiesta Friday, Angie. Thanks for hosting!
?? Happy FF to you, too! And have a great weekend! It’s a long weekend for me (MLK day Monday), so I’m happy ?
Wow! I haven’t had a long weekend in a while. Enjoy your weekend, Angie.?
My apologies, Jhuls. It’s all fixed now ?
No worries, Angie! I missed last FF. I am glad I am here now.?
Skye is so very cute and I am sure these are tears of joy as dogs love having their basket/home back! I can co-host towards the end of the month if you like.
Thanks, she really is adorable! Every time I look at her, I want to scoop her up and cuddle her? We were all very surprised to see the tears! So precious! I’m putting you down for FF208 Jan 26, is that good?
Aw, that is too sweet. Nothing better than being gone and coming home to a pet that obviously missed you and also missed “her home”.
It was so precious. I think she was overwhelmed that we came back for her! I think she thought we had given her up, just like her previous owner, so she was very happy to see us and her home.
Ooooh your dog is sooo cute! It’s so sweet that she was so happy to see you and to be home 😀
Thanks! Isn’t it so precious?! She gives us so much joy, so proud to be her mamma ?
Hey Angie! It’s been a long time. Sorry for my absence. I’ve missed too many parties, but I am back in full gear and I can co-host next week if you still need:)
Hey, Lily! Happy to have you back! I do see you sometimes on Tailwind, but it’s nice seeing you here at the fiesta. And yes, please, I’d appreciate it if you can cohost next week ??

The joy and love that our dogs show is priceless isn’t it?? ❤️
Totally! We love Skye even more now. Poor thing probably thought we abandoned her! ?
Elaine @ foodbod says
It’s such a tough lesson for them to learn isn’t it? Bob hates it every time we go out, but we always come back and there’s always great joy 🙂
Emmi @ Emmi's Cookinside.blog says
I think dogs have tears of joy! 😉 So cute!!
Thank you for this party, Angie!
Have a wonderful weekend!
I wasn’t sure at first and there are conflicting theories out there, but I’m pretty sure there are exceptions in the animal world, just like in human’s. Skye may be one of the few dogs that can show happiness thru tears of joy. So precious!
Chance was VERY happy to see me when I got back from my Georgia vacay!! No sign of spring here, no matter how fast things seem. -11 when Chance and I went out this a.m.
That’s too cold, brr… The weather is all over the place here, 60s today (no kidding!) but so dreary with the rain and clouds and tomorrow it’s going to turn drastically, only in the 20s! At least we can snuggle up with our furry babies, they’re always so warm! ?
Would you believe my furry baby pulled the covers off my bed this morning!! He got the quilt, which woke me up and then had the blanket, ever so gently in his teeth as I opened my eyes!!! He knows how to wakeme up, I guess!
Aaw…how cute! Skye is less subtle. When she wants something she paws and scratches! She’s lucky she’s irresistibly cute! ?
Skye is a cute dog. I think they do have tears of joy. I have never noticed in our dog but I know he gets very excited to see us whenever we pick him back after vacation.
Thanks, Balvinder! They really are a man’s (as well as a woman’s) best friend ? They love you so unconditionally!
Thanks for hosting, Angie! Have a great start to the weekend. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
My pleasure, Kathryn! Have a wonderful weekend! ?
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season Angie! Your little Skye is so sweet. A dog’s love and happiness to see you is unmatched. The features look delicious this week. Happy New Year and have a great weekend
I did, Antonia. I hope you did, too. Not to brag or anything, but Skye really is adorable. I don’t know how the previous owner could have given her up, but we’re happy that they did! ? A very happy new year to you and your family! ?
That is such a sweet heart warming story about Skye, Angie!
Isn’t it? I’m glad you enjoyed it. She’s getting really spoiled though, but we won’t have it any other way ?
Jas @ All that's Jas says
Awe, I believe dogs cry happy tears. So cute! And how about those yummy Meringues? So yummy. I’m hiring Ann as my personal chef. 🙂 Thanks for hosting the party. Have a wonderful weekend!
Ann GrubbsnCritters says
I’ll take up your offer, Jas! Can we talk contract now? :p I’ll travel the world to be anyone’s personal chef for a day or two. That would be awesome! ?
(and I have accidentally used the wrong window in response to your comments :p)
You can be my personal chef, too, Ann. Can you send me some of the meringues, please?! ??
Ann GrubbsnCritters says
I do believe that dogs can cry – happy or not. SO endearing! I bet he misses you. The joy of having pets. 🙂
And thank you for the feature. I can do a happy dance now. 😀 😀 😀 Have a good rest of the weekend, Angie!
Just so you know, part of being featured is sending the host a sample of the food, so I’m looking forward to sampling the meringue ??
Lol, just kidding!! ??

I totally agree with you Angie on the time flies part! I cannot believe it is already going to be the second half of January! Skye looks so cute 🙂 I have always believed that dogs are the most affectionate and giving (without expecting much) beings on earth! Enjoy your pet dear 🙂 By the way, thank you so much for featuring my Cauliflower crispies this week; jumping with joy and happiness 🙂 🙂 Have a happy weekend!
Aaw…that’s such a sweet description of man’s best friend, I like that! And your cauliflower crispies sound so delicious! Can’t wait to give it a try!
Stacey Bender says
Awww….Skye is beautiful. What kind of dog and how old is she? Many dogs do have eye discharge but based on your description, I would say that was a tear from joy!
Thanks! She’s a Westie, about 9 or 10 yrs old. We rescued her from a shelter and when we did they told us she was about 8, no birthdate. That was one and a half years ago. She still acts like a baby sometimes ? We love her to death!
