Datha Y. Thompson 9/20/2011 10:59:01 AM

EXCELLENT!!! Tooooo Funny and so darn cute!!! Love it FAVED!!! :) #1409577

Susan Fox 9/20/2011 11:15:50 AM

LOL! it #9681774

Melinda F. Schneider 9/20/2011 11:20:37 AM

Thank you soooo much, Datha and Susan!
The two of you have made my day!! #9681782

Amanda D. Austwick 9/20/2011 11:42:29 AM

Ohh this is soo funny, Makes my day:) #9681815

Nikki McDonald 9/20/2011 11:50:27 AM

Wonderfully conceived and executed, Melinda. This is adorable. I love his expression! and that the mouse is running away from him but he's still scared. LOL indeed -- great theme entry. #9681825

Mitch Spence 9/20/2011 11:52:45 AM

That is terrific, Melinda. The idea and the execution. You can't beat the perfect look of fright and astonishment. And it is inspired, I think, to give us just that look of Mr. Mouse's backside. #9681828

Melinda F. Schneider 9/20/2011 11:56:31 AM

Thank you, Amanda and Nikki!
Yes, it reminds me of the old joke about women and mice. That even if the mouse is skittering away, just its presence is enough to make a woman scream. And the sight of this mouse, no matter what direction it is heading, no matter that it is clearly more afraid of the dog and skeddaddling away just as fast as it can, has the dog in quite a TIZZY! #9681837

Joy Rector 9/20/2011 11:58:23 AM

love it #9681841

Mary Beth Aiello 9/20/2011 1:16:17 PM

Straight into my faves, Melinda. This is just priceless. So well done. #9681929

Melinda F. Schneider 9/20/2011 1:29:19 PM

Thank you, Mitch and Joy and Mary Beth.
I am thrilled that so many of you are loving it! #9681941

David Phalen 9/20/2011 2:03:32 PM

Hysterical capture and perfect entry for today's Theme!! #9681977

Michele Peterson 9/20/2011 2:36:52 PM

Lol, Melinda, you did a fabulous job with this!! Too funny, everything about it you got just right. Just the tail end of the mouse to give us a hint of what is going on. And that expression on the dog is great... priceless!! HTD!! #9682031

Melinda F. Schneider 9/20/2011 2:40:22 PM

Thank you, Dave and Michele!
I sure did have fun with this creation; and every day I have fun with this silly dog! #9682041

Usman M. Bajwa 9/20/2011 8:28:48 PM

Absolute perfection, Melinda. I am guessing this will be the run-away Winner at 101 and also at BP. Fingers crossed!!

UB. #9682515

Susan K. Snow 9/20/2011 8:42:45 PM

Absolutely terrific, Melinda. So creatively conceived and oh, so funny. Is this silly dog still in your life and making you laugh?

This has my vote, not even seeing the rest of the images for the theme. Hope it's a winner at 101 and BP. #9682524

Katarina Mansson 9/20/2011 10:51:01 PM

BRILLIANT! Excellent use of negative space and exptremely well fitted to the theme. Love it! HTD Melinda! #9682596

Melinda F. Schneider 9/20/2011 11:32:05 PM

Thank you UB, Bunny and Katta.
Thorry is just 2 years old and makes me laugh daily. He must be getting over his fears; yesterday he caught a rabbit. #9682646

Graham Robards 9/21/2011 12:00:52 AM

Oh my goodness Melinda this is the funniest thing I have ever seen.

Priceless, clever and I am sure the clear winner at 101 and BP too!

As UB says "let's hope so"! HDT!


Craig D. Minton 9/21/2011 12:32:08 AM
